Course Description

Health is defined as an optimal state of physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual well being.  The same explanation applies to wellness.  It's like that old saying "You don't have anything if you don't have your health."  Our birth certificates don't have an expiration date.  We're entitled to a lifetime of wellness.  But we have to earn it.


 Lifetime Wellness gives you a blueprint to help you feel alive, vital, confident and experience a state of well-being.  Treatment of disease may save lives, but it rarely results in wellness behavior and a feeling of well-being.  It rarely results in the ability to make healthier choices and deal with stress in a positive way. 


Can you actually exercise your mind back to wellness?  Why not?   Tune in to the messages your body is sending you; learn to take charge of your body composition and ways to nourish your body with fitness.  Get the jump on nutrition by making good choices.  New is only new for a day but personal growth never quits. 


Whether you're contemplating a second career or getting fit inside and out, the Lifetime Wellness course helps you design an entire existence worth of living.  Learn a new prospective on weight and diet, and the importance of exercise to maintain good health.  You'll explore new ways to define yourself, not only by past accomplishments but by the possibilities you create for the future.  Lifetime Wellness gives you all the tools to create a lifetime of fulfillment at any age.
