"Be Well | Feel Well” 5-Day “Summer Jumpstart” Detox by Yellow Rose Fitness (June 26-30, 2023), and Three 50-minute Custom Stretch Sessions at the Stretch Lab Metairie
Yellow Rose Fitness by Michelle Cox
Jumpstart your healthiest summer! The 5-day reset is a guided, whole foods detox to help you feel better and have more energy without giving up real foods. The package includes enrollment in Group Reset this June, plus one private session of mobility/fascia stretching instruction and a pair of Yoga Tune-Up Balls.
I know you want to feel great in your skin this summer (who doesn’t?!), but I’ll bet you aren’t willing to give up all your favorite foods and starve yourself. Good thing you’ve landed here! I’ve been there and done that – it’s no fun, and I can tell you it doesn’t work for the long haul.
I’m Michelle Cox, a Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach, and I know there’s so much confusing advice out there about how to lose weight and look great for summer. I know what it’s like to try every diet that’s out there, including detoxes that limit what I can eat to just a few items or force me to drink nothing but liquids for days.
I believe in the importance of food as medicine to help heal and nourish the body and to build community. It can shape the ups and downs of mood, sleep, and energy. Learning strategies to manage those ups and downs is what I want to share with you during this detox.
