Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced mind, body and spirit. The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities. At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.
The Wardle Family YMCA offers nutrition coaching to our members. Through personal consultations we can help you simplify the confusion that plagues your plate and help you get a real taste of success. If you are looking for advice on how to help manage your weight, improve athletic performance, or establish healthy eating habits, seeing Y nutrition coach Shay Potter might be just what you need!
One-On-One Nutrition Counseling
Just like the structure of our YMCA Personal Training Program, you can purchase a one-on-one multi-session package or individual session to meet with nutrition coach Shay Potter and get personalized nutrition coaching to assist in meeting caloric & nutrient needs as well as healthy eating habit requirements for your level of activity. Topics include nutrients and food; food logs and portion control; label reading, health halos, and nutrition fads; the ins and outs of grocery stores; kitchen improvisation and substitutions; eating away from home and body and social cues.
About Shay: Shay Potter is certified through National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and is currently working on her degree in Nutrition from Eastern Michigan University. She is passionate about helping others cultivate healthy habits and lifestyles utilizing nutrition and the way it impacts our bodies to create better health and enhance sports performance. Shay is a wife and mom of eight, a certified nutrition and wellness coach and a dietetic student.
