Spring into Fitness 5K Nutrition Workshop

130 S State College Blvd

We all know that we should exercise. It benefits our overall health, it can be a good stress reliever, it can help shed unwanted pounds and many other benefits. We also all know that we should eat healthily. The confusion comes in how to eat healthy for an active person who exercises regularly. Eating healthy for someone who is inactive vs. eating healthy for an active person. You also have an unknown area of eating well for someone training for a 5K vs. someone who is training for a marathon. Another important aspect of this workshop is learning how to eat for recovery. The right fuels will allow you to repair muscles more efficiently. Subtle changes in your diet can lead to great benefits. This workshop will definitely help you through your day to day choices and assist you long term. This is a goal of ours to educate you so that you will have a better quality of life long term. The workshop will be given by one of our team doctors, Dr.James Lander who is not only a chiropractor but an elite athlete. http://landerchiropractic.com/ PLEASE SUBMIT ANY SPECIFIC QUESTIONS VIA THIS MEETUP SO WE MAKE SURE TO ADDRESS THEM AT THE WORKSHOP.
