A BIG WELLTRAX WELCOME TO KAYL KARADJIAN, EXERCISE SCIENTIST!
Lunch & Learn!
With Kayl Karadjian, B.S., Exercise Scientist
Friday, April 24 from Noon to 1:00 pm
Osteoporosis is a serious public health problem. Some 44 million people in the United States are at risk for this potentially debilitating disease, which is responsible for 1.5 million fractures (broken bones) annually. Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and brittle — so brittle that a fall or even mild stresses like bending over or coughing can cause a fracture. Osteoporosis affects men and women of all races. But white and Asian women — especially older women who are past menopause — are at highest risk. Medications, healthy diet and weight-bearing exercise can help prevent bone loss or strengthen already weak bones.
Come hear Fitness Specialist KAYL KARADJIAN discuss this important topic on Friday from noon to 1 pm. He will tell us the latest research on the topic and give great advice on ways to prevent or reverse this dangerous disease. Call ahead to reserve your spot-and your free lunch!
LAUGHTER YOGA SPECIALIST PAT CONKLIN will be starting her next 6 week Laughter Yoga classes. If you haven't tried Laughter Yoga, come and join Pat for a "joyful" experience!
WELLTRAX WELCOMES FITNESS SPECIALIST ASHLEY GADELHA

EXERCISE OR DIET?? WHICH IS MORE IMPORTANT IN LOSING WEIGHT?
Physical activity plays many substantial roles for the body. It strengthens muscles and bones, improves cholesterol levels, reduces blood pressure, and decreases your risk for cardiovascular disease and cancer. But while it is important to exercise as part of any wellness program, many individuals do not understand the impact nutrition plays as well. People believe because they have exercised they are allowed to consume more, but they end up eating more calories than what they spent an hour burning off! Ultimately this leads to weight gain, and can cause frustration for those who are not losing weight even though they continually exercise.
