Regina originally started The Fitness Nook (formally One + One) with the belief that living in a rural community should not be a limiting factor for women living healthy lifestyles.
Regina didn’t have time herself to drive 60-minutes each way to attend a class, but did already have years of experience teaching group fitness, Pilates, and personal training. Her husband, Mat (the amazing tech/video/web guy, and visionary behind the online classes) and her started with offering classes that eliminated the commute. Classes without a commute work(ed), but there was still the missing piece of building great community. Everyone benefits when they do life and hard work with one another, making it easier to stick with goals when the schedule gets tough.
And so, years later, One + One Wellness (and now The Fitness Nook) was born. Live classes offered in your community, without the commute, and/or fresh, new, weekly online classes, for you anytime.
We believe that when you challenge and change your body, you can change your world. One choice, one day, one class at a time.
More about Regina
Hi! I’m Regina (I also go by Regi). By day I work as a Wellness Coordinator and I get focus on overall employee wellness. I’m the wife to an awesome guy and mom of four amazing kids, now all college-aged and/or beyond. We also have a dog named Maya, and a neighbor cat we have claimed (and have named Rocky). My
I started my fitness and health journey in high school when I started running. I wasn’t much of a natural athlete, but I loved to hit the gravel road with my walkman. In college, I found my place in a step aerobics class. Music, simple choreography, and a step were my jam! That experience led to me teaching fitness classes and working as a personal trainer. I graduated from college with a major in recreation therapy and fitness management.
After all these years, I still love to share my passion for helping people, especially women, feel and move better in their bodies. And now at the sweet age of 49, I truly know how to help women who are doing all the “right things,” but can’t seem to reach their fitness goals like they could when they were younger. I see you and I understand.
There is more to it than counting calories and cardio. Stress and hormones play a bigger role than you might think. Knowing how to manage stress in your mind and body are crucial to reaching your health goals as we age.
