Every month we feature our awesome members. They are inspirational, they rock and we wouldn’t be where we are without their continued support of our wellness movement. Our November Member Profile is Adrienne!

What’s your favorite wellness quote?
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same”. – Marianne Williams

What are some of your favorite exercises?
I like anything that I can do properly, that doesn’t make me feel like a clumsy oaf. I especially like the control of working with the TRX straps. I do NOT like anything that includes jumping or lifting things above my head!

What motivates you to stay healthy?
Family, walking with my husband and the dog, thinking about my mother and going to the beach.

What do you do to stay balanced in your daily life (hobbies)?
Theatre, Photography, Volunteer work, shopping, and cooking time with my family and pets.

If this food/meal were the last available on Earth and you were the lucky recipient, what would it be?
Cheese!!!! Since it’s only this once.

What are three of your upcoming goals NOW, in one year and in five years?
NOW – lose that 10lbs. In ONE YEAR – maintain that goal weight. In FIVE YEARS – hiking the trails and climbing the stairs to the beach at my summer home.

What are some songs currently on your playlist?
Loyal, Patient, Creative.

What do you do for fun locally?
Go to the theatre, go to Mondavi, walk the dog in Curtis Park, eat at Kru and II Fornaio!

Describe yourself in 3 words:
Positive, Determined, Lucky!

How has Inspired Wellness impacted your life?
I feel better in every way. I have lost 45 lbs. My chronic acid reflux is gone. My sleep apnea and snoring have improved tremendously. My mobility and energy levels are much improved, as is my Piriformis Syndrome (sciatica). All of that is great, but the best result of my 9 months at Inspired Wellness is the improvement in my self-confidence. I am very proud of what I have accomplished and very grateful to Christina for showing me the way.
