Pathways Walking Trail/Relationship with AACPS 

Pathways Walking Map We are proud to announce the creation of our 4th marked walking path. What makes this .4 mile path extra special is that it's a collaborative effort with our friends at AACPS and their Board of Education building which is located next door to our Pathways facility. This is another opportunity to expand the wellness message of Energize and include other members of the community in our mission. To view the path or download a copy for yourself, click here.   

Improve Your BMI and Burn More Calories      

Beginning in January, Energize Wellness is offering Group Personal Training sessions at a special low rate. Strength training helps you build more muscle, improving your BMI so you look more fit and toned. It helps to increase bone mineral density (which may reduce your risk of osteoporosis), as well as improve balance and low-back health. It also increases the gastrointestinal transit rate, to help you burn more calories on a daily basis.  Click here to learn more.   

Ask the Nutritionist: 

Q: "Can you recommend a website with healthy recipes?"

A: Here's one of my personal favorites. The American Heart Association has a website called Delicious Decisions that is packed with nutritional information and great healthy recipes in all categories. It also provides guidance on selecting and ordering foods in restaurants. Click here to access.

Inspiration by Energize Scale

"I knew I needed to make healthier choices. I had nothing  to lose (except the weight) and everything to gain! To date, I have lost almost 10% of my body weight, dropped 2 to 3 clothing sizes, and significantly reduced my diabetes meds. If I can do it...anyone can! Find your motivation to live a healthier life and get started on YOUR journey today!'' Katherine F.
