Foxboro, MA, October 20, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Tom Sheehan and LeAnna Brown, owners of Sheehan Personal Training in Foxboro, MA, have agreed to deliver a nutrition presentation at Wheaton College on November 4. This presentation will provide students with an understanding of which foods are most dangerous to eat, and will explain what happens to our cellular functions as a result of ingesting these foods.
Sheehan and Brown, who are now into the fourth year of business with their training studio, believe that nutrition is the most important component of healthy living. They operate a semi-private training studio where up to three people can be in a session at once, but all nutrition plans that are developed are unique and based on a clients' goals, tastes, and lifestyles.
Sheehan, a Certified Nutrition Specialist through the American Academy of Sports Dieticians and Nutritionists (AASDN), had struggled with weight as a child and embraced exercise shortly after graduating from high school in 1982. He is currently studying the effects of nutrition on the prevention and eradication of many diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. He believes that there is a library of information which needs to be shared with the public that will enlighten many people as to the dangers of the processed food that we are eating today. “At one time bloodletting was approved by all leading doctors, so we need to be objective and open-minded when it comes to potential cures for diseases today,” says Sheehan.
Brown, a self-proclaimed foodie, began studying nutrition with the birth of her first child in 1993. She started reading labels and doing research on what we were feeding our infants. She soon noticed the symmetry between the advent of the Standard American Diet (SAD) and the many afflictions (mental & physical) that children are suffering from today. From this point on she only purchased organic food and immersed herself in journals and books that would provide her with the highest possible knowledge on how to provide proper nutrition to her family. "I am frankly amazed at people when they tell me they cannot afford organic food. Those same people tend to spend an enormous amount of money on recreation and eating out," Brown says. "The sad part is that when disease sets in, many will consider it simply ‘bad luck’ when in fact the illness is almost always attributable to improper nutrition.”
This presentation is the result of positive feedback which was received after a similar presentation was delivered to mixed martial arts students who are members of America’s Best Defense in North Attleboro. This is a dojo which is owned and operated by Master Paul Garcia, who not only works with hundreds of students to improve their lives through the teachings of the martial arts, but strives to improve all aspects of their health by inviting experts to speak to his members on related subjects such as nutrition and cardiovascular training. “Tom’s presentation really opened the eyes of my students who struggle with food choices on a daily basis. The importance of nutrition cannot be emphasized enough for anyone who is on a quest to achieve better physical fitness and a healthier life,” says Master Garcia.
This nutrition seminar will be presented at the Hinsdale Auditorium, which is located in the Science Center of the Wheaton Campus. The seminar will be open to the public and doors open at 6:30 PM.
Tom Sheehan and LeAnna Brown are life and business partners who operate their holistic studio with the goal of making a difference in the health and well-being of every person who walks through their door. They both possess a Masters in Business Administration, and are nationally certified personal trainers. They currently conduct their own independent studies on nutrition and the effects that exercise and nutrition can have in the prevention and elimination of diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.
