As the Harper Wellness Manager by day and fitness instructor by night, Beth takes a holistic approach to fitness and overall well-being by the integration of the 8 dimensions of wellness (Emotional, Environmental, Financial, Intellectual, Physical, Social and Occupational) into everyday living. Beth focuses on the importance of functional movements to help individuals optimize their overall well-being.  Moreover, Beth recognizes the importance of celebrating body diversity as it relates to physical wellness as everyone’s needs, goals and body types are going to be different.
