Paragon Health & Fitness provides expert-level coaching through the following Corporate Wellness Solutions:

The well-known freshmen “15” never found me during my college years. After graduating and no longer struggling with tests, essays, and turn in dates, my social life was full steam ahead. When I would step on the scale, I slowly began to realize that the freshmen “15” did in fact find me. I would rationalize that it was only a pound or two. At about the same time, my company had hired a personal trainer, Adam Reeder, and was offering weekly workouts. Though I had been told about exercises many benefits, I always put it off for another day as being in my PJs and watching Dr. Phil was always a much more inviting option. Realizing my body wasn’t going to workout itself, I conceded to attend one session. I was also offered to use Paragon’s Fit3D Scanner and was disgusted by my avatar. It was at that moment I realized it was going to take more than one session. One session became two, two became three and before long not only was I a whole new me but came to love working out. With Adam’s expertise and guidance as well as his constant encouragement I have lost that “15 pounds” and almost 5% body fat. My energy is through the roof and I have made peace with my avatar. I am here to say if I can do it, you can too! You may be thinking “she probably heard that on Dr. Phil” but I am a walking testament to the results achieved at Paragon Health + Fitness. Whether your goal is to merely improve your health, your outlook, or your silhouette, these goals can be achieved with Adam and his team.
