Online PR News – 26-September-2012 – Orange California – The Coastal Center for Obesity announced that it will be working with well-known radio host, author, and bariatric fitness specialist Erin Akey. Her Fit and Flourishing personal online training program is now available directly to the centers’ patients.
Dr. Milton Owens, the director of Coastal Center for Obesity said that, “We are delighted to work with Erin Akey. At Coastal, we pride ourselves on both pre and post-operative bariatric care. Erin’s unique personality and brand of motivational work with her clients makes for a great fit with us. Anything we can do to help our patients maintain their progress is essential.”
Ms. Akey is a certified fitness nutrition coach and personal trainer who made a substantial life change after losing her home to Hurricane Katrina. Her subsequent work with hurricane relief demonstrated to her just how overweight and out of shape she had become. After trying numerous diet and exercise programs that did not work, Akey received Bariatric surgery that gave her great results. She shed 130 pounds. She now describes herself as a post-operative patient with a passion. She has made it her life’s mission to help people live healthy, happier lives.
Akey stated that, “After my experiences with bariatric surgery, I decided to help individuals get the same results I had received. I believe that people looking to lose weight must keep their programs fresh and fun. You must learn to love your weight-loss program in order to succeed. That is what I facilitate.”
The Fit and Flourishing online personal training program includes personalized web pages, personalized fitness plans, and personalized nutrition plans. Akey also said that she encourages clients to work with her one-on-one. “Making the program personalized is the only way it ever works,” she said. “I make sure that each of my clients will succeed in their goals.”
