Nassau, Bahamas - The road to healthy living often requires a complete mental and physical reset. For consumers leading busy lives, incorporating healthy habits on a daily basis is often challenging. By the end of the first quarter of each year many have abandoned resolutions that can lead to healthier lifestyles.  To combat this trend, Solomon’s Fresh Market launched a yearlong initiative called Reset To Wellness to assist customers in achieving their wellness goals.

The brand known for its wide selection of fresh, organic grocery options has partnered with local fitness and wellness professionals to provide resources for its clientele to maintain healthy habits throughout the year.

In-house health coach, Melissa Major said the Reset To Wellness program focuses on contributing to the broader community.  “Throughout 2018, our team at Solomon’s Fresh Market will host several events free of charge where the community is able to attend and get the knowledge and advice needed to live a healthier lifestyle,” Major explained.

Leading fitness experts address Solomon’s Fresh Market shoppers as a part of the store’s Reset To Wellness initiative.

“We started January with a two-part food and fitness forum for our monthly in-store Eye On Health seminars.  Part one showcased five of the leading fitness trainers in the industry—Dianne Gibson of 90 Day Transformation 242, Theo Pyfrom of Wolf Fitness, Dekel Nesbitt of Bowflex Barbie, Donovan Rolle of Jay Fitness and Charles Johnson of CrossFit Potcake. They all came together to discuss their different styles of fitness and the importance of sustainable nutrition.”

Fresh Market customers were also able to gain valuable fitness tips during part two of the forum with an information-packed session on muscle gains by IFBB Pro Joel Stubbs. During the presentation, Stubbs outlined the benefits of supplements to enhance muscle growth and shared his journey to becoming a pro builder.

In quarter one, Solomon’s Fresh Market also participated in the University of The Bahamas’ UBFit Road to Wellness event. Coach Major presented on cancer prevention.  At the session, she stressed the role healthy lifestyle choices played in reducing the risk of developing cancer.

“Research suggests that only five percent of cancers are hereditary. That means the non-inherited causes of cancer, the lifestyle choices we make, the foods we eat, and our physical activity levels, have a direct impact on our overall cancer risk.   This means that we must be more proactive with taking better care of ourselves,” Major said.

As a part of the ongoing Reset To Wellness initiative, the team at Solomon’s Fresh Market has committed to dedicating time and resources to providing support and mapping out realistic plans and habits for customers to maintain their healthy living goals. Through its health coaching program Solomon’s Fresh Market customers can receive one-on-one nutrition and wellness coaching, learn about goal setting with follow-up sessions to track their progress and take part in individual or group store tours. The program also offers specific coaching for cancer survivors. To set up a free health coaching consultation, call 677-7280 or email mmajor@amlfoods.com.
