Meet our October Member of the Month-Lauren Nessler🤸‍♀️

Lauren has been a Wellness Zone member since March 2021. She has continued to stay motivated with her wellness goals by incorporating a variety of strength, cardio, and active rest days each week. Lauren has found that it's easier to stay motivated when she follows along with a workout either on the Wellness Zone page, YouTube, or the Wellbeats app.

When it comes to adjusting her workout routine, Lauren started personal training with Kaylie in March. It's really helped her focus on how everything in the body connects as well as the importance of foam rolling and maintaining good form. While working from home she's also rediscovered her love for walking!

Keep up the great work, Lauren!
