Welcome to WellnessWinz!
My name is Maggie Winzeler and you can read more about me here: Author. But for now, the blog…
I started WellnessWinz to bring women holistic fitness and wellness posts, often accompanied by a side dish of humor and humility. The posts draw mainly from the last decade of my life as a fitness professional and all that I’ve learned, but I interweave my personal perspective into the blog, too. Don’t worry, it’s obvious when I’m writing an article based on objective information versus fun (or embarrassing) stories from my experiences. I’m also a nerd and like to offer up plenty of references and scientific facts.
As a fitness professional, I have found that women often need encouragement and guidance while working to strike balance in their lives. I believe that each woman gets to decide what optimal well-being looks like in her own life and that this definition may change season to season. It’s not a static state. We learn and grow.
Some women may define wellness as eating an all-plant based diet while some may focus heavily on protein for their health. Active women may feel that running five days a week is the peak expression of fitness while others may never participate in high-impact exercise, focusing exclusively on yoga and Pilates. I’m here to help you explore your options for fitness, wellness and happiness with courage! There are many paths we get to choose from, so let’s have some fun in the process!
Although I love blogging, I don’t do it full-time. So for now, please keep your eyes open on Monday mornings as that is when most new posts go live. I try to do one post (at least) every month. I guess I could blog more frequently, but I’m much more interested in giving you quality over quantity. Hope you’re cool with that, too!
If you are new to WellnessWinz, please feel free to refer to posts beginning in October 2014, when the blog was launched. The first few months of content may help serve as anchors for more specific, niche fitness topics and tips in the future, but you can start reading from any point.
Check out the intro video! It’s only 40 seconds long and helps explain a little bit more about WellnessWinz and the process of discovering wellness:
