Serving the Chicagoland fitness community for 38 years. Manager of The Chicago Sweat Shop, one of Chicago's first aerobic studios, started my love for group exercise before opening my own gym Second Wind. 35 years later I am coaching High School cross country and spending my days educating on environmental and digital wellness.
Environmental wellness stems from pleasant and stimulating environments that support well being. It promotes interaction with the planet and also with our personal, home and work communities. I truly hope that you are open to the conversation.
Digital wellness provides leaders and change makers with tools and resources to foster a more positive digital culture. Digital wellness is a new and ever developing niche in personal, corporate and student well being, it is an exciting time to be a part of the discussion.
