Personal trainer, chef team up to help others improve health, wellness
Personal Trainer George Kadlec and Chef/Group Fitness instructor Kevin Bame hold the premise that being fit and healthy happens when people eat well and incorporate exercise into their daily lives. Their new 360° Live It programs teach attendees how to do both.
Four years ago, Bame decided to take control of his health. He connected with Kadlec at Fitness Evolution for personal training, and lost 95 pounds over the course of 13 months.
Bame didn’t do anything drastic or extreme; he worked out and ate healthy. Bame said the habits he developed have become a way of life, and it shows in his continued wellness.
Bame had experience in the restaurant-service business and as a caterer. But it wasn’t until he began his quest for better health that he taught himself to prepare healthy and delicious food.
Like many of us, the extent of Bame’s knowledge of healthy eating was fed through marketing campaigns by companies like Lean Cuisine.
“Marketing has done its job,” Bame said. “Most people don’t realize how much sodium and preservatives are put in frozen diet food.”
