  • Nutrition is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Without proper nutrition, one does not have enough energy to make it through the day. Also, health declines without proper nutrition, making one more susceptible to illness and disease.

    A Whole New You nutritional counseling is very individualized as each client has different goals. I teach and guide clients how to incorporate whole foods into their diet & lifestyle.

  • I offer clients a weight loss program for those who want to lose weight quickly and safely. A health coach is assigned to help you stay on your program and keep the weight off. Once off the program, the client can learn how to incorporate whole foods into their daily lives.

    Runs for 12 wk cycles, you will not only learn to lose weight, but will also learn a lifestyle change that will help you keep the weight off for life! It is not just a weight loss class, it is an education to teach you how to incorporate healthy eating into your lifestyle.

    Since I began working with Laura, not only have I lost weight, but I have established new, healthier routines that make me feel so much more energetic and ready to face the day! - Diane P.

    It was a great experience working with Laura as she was the one who encouraged me to come to one of her weight loss classes, and finally I did. I was surprised that I got so much benefit out of it, I lost 15 lbs and kept it off for the last 6 months! I only wish I started earlier. - Syed A.

  • In the time that I have worked with Laura, I can attest to her skills and knowledge in the personal training field. Laura knows just how much to push and when to back off during our sessions. She has taught me how to safely lift weights, the importance of core strength, as well as the need to maintain flexibility through advanced stretching techniques. I have gained a great deal of knowledge about my own body and will continue to benefit from my sessions with Laura long after we have completed working together. I can highly recommend Laura as a terrific personal trainer who will work diligently to help you achieve your fitness goals. - Dave P.

    I have worked with Laura for over 2 years, learning about nutrition and weight loss, while in an exercise program. This program resulted in a significant reduction in my weight, an increase in my overall energy level, and a change in lifestyle. Applying the skills I learned gave me the motivation to be persistent, and now I have been able to get off diabetes medications! I highly recommend Laura Rivkin. - John L.

  • When I saw Laura’s advertisement for her cooking class, I knew I need to sign up for it.  Although, I have always cooked healthy meals, I had recently become bored with what I prepared for my family.  Laura’s class introduced me not only to new healthy vegetables and grains, but also showed me some new ways to cook foods that I love.  Laura has a wealth of knowledge about food and nutrition and is committed to helping others find energy and good health through eating delicious yet healthy meals.  It was certainly worth my time and money to invest in myself by taking one of Laura’s cooking classes - Nancy
