Xena Fitness Program
Physical activity prevents chronic disease, improves overall health, fitness, and quality of life. The Xena Fitness Project is making fitness safe and accessible while simultaneously keeping high risk populations healthy. Now, more than ever, fitness coaching accessible to those with the greatest need.
The Xena Fitness Project is a nonprofit community health partner. We develop referral based partnerships with community medical centers, hospitals, health and medical care nonprofits, clinics, and professionals to identify and serve patients diagnosed with chronic health conditions when physical exercise and improved diet are recommended by their physician as a key health intervention.
The Xena Fitness Project provides free fitness and wellness plans with individually customized solutions to promote increased health and happiness for people living with chronic illness. We know how essential it is to keep people connected and consistently engaged, not just in times of crisis. The Xena Fitness Project works to increase average weekly activity and delivers targeted resources that support the management of chronic disease.
The nutrition coaching service includes an initial nutrition assessment and periodic adjustments of each client’s custom nutritional strategy. Through personalized meal plans and food analysis clients learn the “how”, “when”, and “what” of the impacts that food has on their energy, mood, and workouts. No diets, just healthy & happy eating habits. We connect clients with resources, help them create action plans, and suggest easy and affordable alternatives for healthy eating.
MINDFULNESS IN NATURE
Xena Fitness Project participants acquire the techniques needed to create habits to make meaningful changes in their lives. Mindfulness improves well-being, relieves stress, lowers blood pressure, reduces chronic pain, improves sleep, and alleviates gastrointestinal difficulties. Nature-based Mindfulness is also an important element in the treatment of depression, substance abuse, eating disorders, couples’ conflicts, anxiety disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
