Fit, Well and Working

This year, the event was "Fit, Well and Working" by Penny Hite, Chair of the Sport Management & Exercise Science department at Fredonia.

Working women are finding it increasing difficult to "have it all." We want to be care-givers, responsible mothers, respected partners, as well as productive and consequential employees. Deadlines, demanding bosses, "mother-guilt" and impossible schedules fill our working lives, while play-dates, soccer practices, dance and music lessons, taxi-driving, creative finances, homework, counseling, dinner menus, grocery shopping, spiritual pursuits, house-keeping, laundry, and – in many cases – the "work" we did not finish at "work" fill our (so-called) free time. These duties often stand at the fore for the working woman as she strives to have it all; unfortunately, fitness and wellness – arguably the most important aspects – are often the last to be considered when creating a workable blueprint for success. This presentation will focus on helping working women incorporate fitness, nutrition and wellness into their busy lifestyles, allowing them to truly have it all.
