How To Get Fit In 2013 And On The Cheap

We originally ran this piece at the start of 2012. But with every new year, comes new resolutions. We wanted to share this again, so that you can keep your’s.


Just because you’re on a budget, doesn’t mean you can’t live well. All you have to do is be on the hunt for those great bargains. We found one and are so excited to share it !!!!!


Whole Foods’ mission isn’t only to offer you a place to purchase good, healthy, quality and organic food, but to educate you on how you can live well. The Wellness Club is a “Lifestyle Change” program to help you learn it and live it.

The club includes:

  • Cooking Classes
  • Nutrition Workshops
  • Wellness Seminars
  • Recreational Events – Yoga, Hiking, Walking
  • Supper Clubs
  • One on One Nutritional Counseling or Coaching

This club is currently offered in 5 stores:

Oakland, CA

Lincoln Park, IL

Dedham, MA

Princeton, NJ

And LUCKY for us – New York City – Tribeca location

  • For just $45 a month, you can attend every workshop, seminar and cooking class for FREE.
  • 10% in-store discount on a wide variety of “Wellness” foods.
  • 20% discount to Supper Club Dinners

If you can’t swing the $45 a month or want to try it out before you commit….NO PROBLEM. Start by taking a workshop or class. Guess what? Some are even FREE.

Want to learn how to incorporate healthy cooking at home? Their cooking classes are ONLY $35!!!! (Free to Wellness Club Members)

But here’s the piece de resistance…..ALL YOU CAN EAT – 3 COURSE DINNER FOR $15!!!!!! ($12 for Wellness Members) No, that isn’t a typo. Every Wednesday (starting Jan 11th) from 6-8pm, is their weekly Supper Club, where you can grab a HEALTHY 3 course meal for $15. That is the ULTIMATE Cheapeats!!! Their menu changes weekly, so check it out before hand.

What’s great about this is, you don’t have to feel alone. This club offers friendship and support, whether you join as one or with a group.

These simple lifestyle changes, including incorporating a plant based diet, will help lower your blood pressure, cholesterol, and body fat. There’s no excuse anymore!!!!

I applaud and thank Whole Foods for creating this AMAZING and GENEROUS Program. It’s nice to see a company not only talk the talk, but walk the walk. 🙂

Happiness, $25 and under.
