PARKERSBURG — Dave Hawkins, owner of Mother Earth Foods, and lifestyle coach, personal trainer and author Linda McClead are offering a free Healthy Living Series event at First Christian Church of Parkersburg, 1400 Washington Ave., on Thursday at 7 p.m.

Learn how a holistic approach and everything in moderation can lead to a happier, healthier, leaner you, McClead said. She will share tips and secrets such as meal preparation and planning time savers, how to set your kitchen up for success and fitness tips to maximize calorie and fat burning, she said.

McClead will be talking about her newly published book, “Healthy Living by Design.” The book can be purchased at the event and McClead will sign copies.

Her books are also available at Mother Earth Foods, Renew Wellness and on Amazon.

McClead will discuss her new “revitalization programs”: Focus on You and Wellness Warriors. Both programs use her book and focus on a holistic approach to health, she said.

They combine health coaching, life coaching, weight loss, fitness, and healthy foods for an all-inclusive wellness experience, McClead said.

The Focus on You program is held at Camden Clark Health and Wellness Center and is a 12-week program. The Wellness Warrior Club will begin in September as part of the health ministry outreach for the community. It will be an on-going Monday evening club.
