"The Grateful Eight" Conquer Their Fitness Goals on Bald Head Island
Published Sunday, May 22, 2016

The Bald Head Island Center for Wellness completed another very successful wellness retreat on May 18, 2016 on Bald Head Island to the resounding praise of the participants. All reported that this highly personalized wellness program exceeded their expectations and they felt better equipped to lead a healthier lifestyle.

The Bald Head Island Center for Wellness offers a holistic approach to wellness with a unique combination of nutrition and exercise instruction combined with lifestyle coaching. The six day, full immersion wellness program included personalized workshops with a nutritionist, hypnotherapist, personal trainer and included cooking classes offered by the Center's personal gourmet chef, Tessa Nguyen.

Some of the topics included in the group discussions were Super Foods, Menu Planning at Home, Moving Away from Diets, and Changing Destructive Thinking. Group exercises were conducted every morning at the BHI Association Center by the Center's certified group fitness trainer, Lori Sowers. Strength training and customized exercise routines for weight loss were conducted at the Bald Head Island Club and were supervised by the club’s certified personal trainer, Terry McAlister. The group also enjoyed morning workouts overlooking the marsh and benefited from behavioral focused hypnotherapy sessions conducted by the Island's own Andrea Pitera.

One of the hallmarks of the Bald Head Island Center for Wellness is our focus on personalization. Because attendance at the Wellness Retreat is capped at 8, each participant receives a great deal of individual attention, encouragement and assistance throughout the week. Meal plans and exercise programs are tailored to each participant.
