Nutrition Workshops

Nutrition is relevant in numerous environments, including:

» The office, where everyone knows the break room contains 99% unhealthy snacks. Corporate lunch and learns can offer an opportunity to advance team education, build community, and promote a culture of health. 

» The military unit, where high OPTEMPO and daily stressors may lead service members to skip meals, rely on energy drinks, or resort to the fast food drive through.

» The spouses’ group, where military spouses are trying to prioritize family nutrition and wellbeing while managing 32,498 other tasks. 

» The gym, where your clients are ready to bring their fitness to the next level and need nutrition alongside their fitness plans to see maximum results. 

» The virtual meeting space, where participants are eating and drinking while talking and frequently miss out on the concept of mindful eating

» And more!

Mary Catherine did an amazing job at the Orangetheory Fitness workshop! Members learned so much from her about how to properly fuel their bodies. She engaged them by asking about questions they had and made it interactive and fun with games as well. I would recommend her to anyone looking to do a nutrition workshop!
