Discover the "New You" in Health & Fitness Workshop

January is the time of year we often strive to make changes to what we eat and how much we exercise, but as anyone who has tried to turn ia new leave will tell you, it's hard...really hard.  Long-term fitness and total body change starts with a mindset change before anything else.  So if you're looking to make some positive changes in 2017, join us for a free seminar titled Simply Human Lifestyle: A New Year, a New You, hosted by Mark Rogers on Saturday, January 28 at 10:00AM at the Mockingbird Branch Library.

Saturday, January 28 @ 10:00AM | Mockingbird Branch

Mark Rogers is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.  He's also owner and head trainer of Simply Human, LLC, a health and wellness consulting/coaching company in Abilene and the host of a well-respected, weekly fitness podcast on iTunes.

On Saturday, January 28, Rogers will host a free seminar on how to kick start your new year and get to a healthier new you.  According to Rogers, humans were designed to eat natural foods - meat, fish, eggs, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and healthy fats - not the junk we typically consume in a fast food meal.  "When you eat foods humans were designed to eat you can achieve optimal health and avoid the degenerative diseases that are plaguing our society today," says Rogers.  In addition to nutrition, Rogers will talk about the importance of adequate sleep, managing stress, and getting the right kind of exercise.

Your Abilene Public Library also has a wide selection of books on health and wellness.  Everything from diet and recipe books to yoga and strength training techniques.  For information on how to find these items at a branch near you, give us a call at 325-437-7323 and staff would be happy to assist you.
