Bio

Maximum fitness and health are within your grasp if you reach for it now.  Long-term success is possible for everyone, even those frustrated by past failure.  The key for many is to work with an expert with the knowledge and experience to individualize strategies specifically tailored to your lifestyle and schedule.

Working with and reporting your daily activities to someone who cares about you and knows your issues will maximize your chances for success.  An experienced trainer understands the reasons many people fall short of their goals,and will keep you motivated and on track as you take on exciting new challenges.

I entered the healthcare profession as a critical care RN earning my nursing degree at Northeastern University in Boston, Mass.  It became clear in a very short time that three conditions: obesity. high blood pressure, and adult onset diabetes were accounting for a high percentage of serious illness including heart attack, stroke, and many cancers.

I have dedicated my professional life to preventing these conditions through diet, exercise and medical education.  The potential outreach to thousands of Americans struggling with dietary and conditioning issues led to my association with HFPN and Sharecare.  As a certified NASM trainer and registered nurse, I look forward to addressing your individual needs and working with you to achieve your personal health and fitness goals.

    Should I drink green tea or white tea?

    Green tea is made only from the leaves of the Camillia sinensis plant. White tea is derived from the fine silvery-white hairs of the delicate unopened buds and younger leaves of the same plant, the Camellia sinensis. These silvery white hairs give the tea its whitish color. Both green and white teas...Read More

    Hi, Shelley~I contacted the infocenter and they're trying to help me. They said if I log on and click on my fitness tab, you should be able to access my activities. Can you yet?

    Hey Shelley, How very kind of you to check in with me. No need for me to ask "how you are doing" because Trainers are always doing great, right? haha. (Just an asumption because you look sooooo healthy. haha) Anyway. I am hanging in there. Right now I am not doing too well because of my severe Fibromyalgia but I try to move every day a litte (everything low impact) so I don't lose interest completely. You know how it is. A body at rest stays at rest and trust me, MY BODY WANTS TO STAY AT REST. hahah. But I am trying to hang in there. I have more problems with controling gravings like chocolate or sweets in general but I am trying to control this as well somehow. So as you can see, Elke is hanging and is trying to push forward. haha. Thanks for asking. You are most kind. Take very good care of yourself and good health to you too. Talk to you again. Elke

    Thanks Shelley for checking on me. Haven't been on here in awhile. I've been so busy with work and my mom. My mom is better now she had a cornea implant with her eyes. I wish her diabetes would get better. I'm gonna try to get better with the program. Have a good week.

    Hi Shelley! I just noticed your comment on my page. Thanks for asking about the blisters. They are doing better. I switched from NB shoes to Asics and that seemed to help a lot. I still need to push myself more though. I don't want to get bored because I'm doing the treadmill every day. Any suggestions?

    Hi Erica, Nice to meet you on Sharecare. Just reading some of your blogs. Congratulations on discovering how important logging your food is...we eat so many calories during the day that we don't realize. Logging will help you keep your calorie intake down. Good luck and please let me know if I can be of any help.
