Red Hook, New York (March 17, 2014) - Gigi Hudson Valley (GHV) and Body Be Well Pilates (BBW) just completed their 30-Day Healthy Lifestyle Challenge ‘Pilot.’ The four participants lost  a total of 38.25 inches and 32 lbs and better yet,  they got fit and enjoyed every nutritious meal along the way.  
 
Laura Pensiero and Chelsea Streifeneder tapped into their professional passions to create a 30-Day Lifestyle Challenge. The goal was to show people that achieving a healthier lifestyle is attainable, and not challenging at all. With regular Pilates training at Body Be Well and tasty nutritionally balanced lunches and dinners from Gigi Trattoria (
6422 Montgomery St., Rhinebeck, NY), everyone lost  inches and embarked on a lifestyle change they felt they could easily continue once the thirty days were up. 
 
Here is how it works: 
Weekly measurements are taken and individual personal workouts are created by the Body Be Well Team. Custom menus by Gigi Hudson Valley to meet individual needs and preferences: three day sets of lunch and dinner meals available to pick up twice a week at either Gigi Trattoria in Rhinebeck or Body Be Well Pilates in Red Hook.   A sample day includes lunch and dinner with Gigi food selections like herb grilled shrimp, chicken roulade, spinach and feta stuffed pork tenderloin, or roasted brussels sprouts.  Meals come with baby greens (local in season) and Gigi made low-cal low fat dressings. To supplement meals you get healthy suggestions for beverages, snacks, and breakfasts.  It is important that you eat enough to maintain your energy and zest for life.  
 

 

           

 

A sustainable shift to a healthier lifestyle is possible for everyone.  It’s time to enjoy soul sustaining food, have fun with regular exercise, strive for balance, and avoid extremes.

 

Laura Pensiero, owner of Gigi Hudson Valley and Chef/Partner of Just Salad, is also a R.D. (registered dietitian), author, and public health advocate. Clinical nutrition experience at some of NYC’s best teaching hospitals, strong culinary roots and longtime experiences with Mediterranean styles of cooking, eating, and living, have truly solidified her approach that a healthy lifestyle that should be obtainable for everyone and that it encompasses "real"  food, not “diets.”

 

           

 

Chelsea Streifeneder, PMA-CPT (Pilates Method Alliance-Certified Pilates Teacher) is passionate about sharing Pilates (the Pilates Method is an approach in mind & body integration that was created by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s) and making it possible for everyone.  She received her Bachelor degree in writing and dance in 2006 from Bard College. Chelsea continues to teach concepts as opposed to just teaching exercises and inspires and educates her clients to take what they learn in their sessions and apply it to their everyday lives. She believes that a consistent Pilates practice will help build strength, flexibility and the long, lean muscles and flat abs that Pilates is known for.
