MOTION IS LIFE. MOTION IS HEALTH. MOTION IS MAGIC.
LIVE WELL was founded on a friendship. Friendship is a powerful asset. Our thoughts inevitably go to “I may be willing to let myself down, but I’m not willing to let my friend down”. I’ll bet you are the same way. In 2010, Sara Hodson had her fourth child and was struggling to maintain her exercise routine, so she reached out to her friend, Tasha McRae, a fellow Clinical Exercise Physiologist who was also a busy mom.
Exercising together made it easier and a lot more fun.
They gained energy. They gained strength, They lost weight. They were healthier. They began living life relaxed, refreshed, and with a smile. They were thriving and Sara realized other people need those things too.
Sara and Tasha had been working together in a hospital-based cardiac rehabilitation program for years, so they understood the power of a supportive community to help people maintain good exercise habits.
People within the supportive community of the hospital rehab program would maintain their exercise regimens as long as that community existed, but those healthy new habits soon disappeared when they left the cardiac rehab program.
Sara said, “I know how to fix that.”
Tasha said, “I’ll help!”
The dream of LIVE WELL Exercise Clinic sprang to life while those two friends exercised together in Sara’s living room. Their concept quickly moved beyond just heart disease to encompass a full range of chronic conditions, providing accountability, joyful community, and clinical exercise expertise to help members live their lives to the fullest.
