“Mary has a really practical approach to this Nutrition programme recognizing that everyone has a busy life and can’t be good 100% of the time. I think I really learnt a lot about food and will be much more focused in the future on the nutritional value rather than just counting calories. I really feel that I can maintain this type of healthy lifestyle without too much effort”
John – Apple Cork

"Mary, thanks a mil for all your help with making me healthy – I recently did a medical after doing your programme and I am still keeping my weight down and my cholesterol is at an all time low – this is definitely down to your advice and talks. I really want to say thanks for motivating and helping me to believe that I could change my diet and exercise even at my age."
Stephen – Shift worker - Pfizer Pharmaceutical Company – Cork

"I did this course with Mary 3 years ago with my company and I can honestly say, I am still sticking to all Mary’s simple tips and recipes and I now continually follow Mary on her facebook tip where she gives very simple practical tips which I can add in to my busy life without too much hard work. I also have shared this information with my family and some friends also. Mary, you are a true inspiration, keep up your fab work and thank you again !"

Fitness Coaching Sessions: a room suitable for up to 30 persons to participate in a fitness training session. This does not necessarily need to be a large room or a gym-designated space.

The instructor will need a power source and music player suitable for IPhone.
For the lifestyle discussions, a whiteboard and markers would be welcome.
Optional Personal Training Sessions By arrangement, the fitness coach may provide an additional group fitness session or individual personal training, for additional cost. In this case, access to an on-site gym or fitness room if available would be ideal. Otherwise personal training sessions can be held in a suitable room such as that described above for fitness coaching sessions.

Participant Duties

Participants will be weighed in using Tanita body composition measurement scales weekly, with the Nutritionist. It is recommended to be barefoot when being weighed to get accurate readings.  Attendance to a high degree is expected in both the nutrition and fitness sessions, as results are reflected by the amount of effort put in by each individual.
