Virtual Fitness Workshop Benefits Animal Shelters

Virtual online fitness coach Rowena Dziubla, owner of WODeration, LLC, will present an online Zoom workshop, Hump Day Health & Fitness, from 6 to 7 p.m., March 6. She says, “I’ll go over what macros are, why you want to track them and how they will put an end to your yo-yo dieting. The primary focus will be learning how to use My Fitness Pal (MFP) as a tool to reprogram your brain and your stomach to eat properly for your desired body composition. MFP is a free app to download, and it’s an incredible tool if you use it properly and to your advantage. It will save you time and headaches by taking the guesswork out of losing weight or toning up!”

       Dziubla is an online health and fitness coach who offers flexible nutrition and functional fitness coaching through her customized 12-week program. Virtual coaching is the alternative to a coach at a gym; perfect for busy lifestyles, it allows clients to be located anywhere and still benefit from one-on-one coaching.

       She notes that all proceeds will be donated to local animal shelters—Magnificent Mutts and Meows, in Hillside, and Rescue Warrior Corp, in Elgin.

Cost: $25. For more information, call 773-849-4990, email or visit
