Abdominal Strengtheners that Won’t Strain Your Back or Neck

Jump Start Your Metabolism— Nutritional Weight and Wellness

 The problem with most ab exercises is they put too much stress on back and neck joints and don’t strengthen the most important layer of abdominal muscle - the layer responsible for flattening your stomach, shaping your waistline and supporting your lower back. In this workshop, you will learn a series of extremely effective exercises that will quickly strengthen your abdominals without stressing your neck or back – all done without having to get onto the floor. No crunches allowed. Instructor: Janice Novak

 Is it harder for you to maintain a healthy weight or lose weight than it once was? Have you tried several diets, but had trouble keeping the weight off? Do cravings sabotage your good intentions? Nutritional Weight & Wellness has a healthier, saner approach for lifelong weight control. Learn how eating real foods in balance can help you lose weight, eliminate cravings and increase energy. This interactive class explains how your food choices, blood sugar levels and essential fatty acids affect your energy and your ability to lose or maintain weight. The course has been designed to meet continuing education criteria for registered nurses and is approved for 2.4 CEU’s. All are welcome.
