Former Philadelphia Police Officer Receives Easy Rest Adjustable Bed


Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) June 03, 2015

Leslie Harris, a former Philadelphia Police Officer and former Marine, is the latest winner of a free adjustable bed through Easy Rest Adjustable Sleep System’s monthly Win-A-Bed Sweepstakes. Harris accepted his new queen size adjustable bed on May 27, 2015 at his home in Aldan, Pennsylvania where he lives with his wife, daughter and grandson.

“I won a small amount of money in the lottery many years ago but I’ve never won anything of this value before,” said Harris. He learned of the sweepstakes through a mailing he received. “I entered the contest every time I got one of the mailings, maybe 3 or 4 times in all,” he said. “But I never thought I’d win one,” he added. When he found out that he’d won the bed his first reaction was “It’s about time I won something.”

Harris typically gets four hours of sleep per night, which he attributes to having worked the night shift for so many years. “Once I wake up I have trouble falling back to sleep. It would be nice if I could get a few more hours sleep. I wouldn’t mind that,” Harris stated. “I think my wife will enjoy the bed more than I will,” he added. “She has a lot of health issues and was in two car accidents in the past, so this bed will be very beneficial for her.”

After sleeping on the bed for several nights Harris reported that his wife was indeed enjoying their new adjustable bed and was especially enjoying the built-in massage feature. “She really likes the massage feature and I do too. It’s very relaxing. I also like that I don’t have to prop up pillows anymore to watch television. It’s a good bed and I would recommend it.”

Her experience ignited a passion to work with those who are obese as well as those experiencing stress in their busy professional lives – two areas that she has had direct personal experience with. According to the World Health Organization, more than 1.9 billion adults were overweight in 2014 – 600 million of them were obese.

Having spent a lifetime ranging from overweight to morbid obesity, coupled with stress from demanding professional roles, Sharon finally took it upon herself to become healthy – inside and out. “Transformation part 1” incorporated an exercise physiologist, a registered dietician, mindfulness, the gastric sleeve surgery, and a great support system. “Transformation part 2” included training at world-renowned Duke Integrative Medicine to become an Integrative Health Coach so that she could help others realize their personal optimal health and well-being and take steps toward achieving their goals for a healthier and happier lifestyle.

Linda Smith, Director of Educational Programs at Duke Integrative Medicine, states, “Our coaches help to make positive changes for health and well-being attainable for their clients.

Former LPGA Tour Winner Maggie Will Discovers The Juvent Micro-Impact Platform as a Pain Relief Breakthrough and Performance Enhancer


Riviera Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 31, 2015

Juvent Sports (http://www.juventsports.com) recently presented its latest offerings at the 2015 PGA Merchandise show in Orlando. At the show, former LPGA golf great and current LPGA Legends Tour player Maggie Will was interviewed and she shared the life-changing physical improvements and pain relief she has been experiencing since she began integrating the Juvent Pro Micro-Impact Platform™ into her morning and evening regimens. The Juvent has been so instrumental to her chronic back pain recovery that it has even allowed her to get back into competitive golf after a 7 year hiatus and join the LPGA Legends Tour. Equally impressive is that in only her 2nd event on the tour, Maggie posted a Top 10 finish at Legends Championship in late 2014.

In the interview, Maggie Will explained how she was first introduced to the Juvent Micro-Impact Platform from her past coach and swing trainer, David Leadbetter. After trying it initially for just 4 days she noticed reductions in her back pain, improvements in her mobility and swing flexibility and even changes in her appetite, surprisingly finding herself craving less sugar. Prior to discovering Juvent, Maggie had pretty much given up playing competitive golf as the post-round back pain she experienced would sideline her for 10-12 days after just a single day of golf on the course. “Now it’s like a vitamin that I depend on every day. I use it 20 minutes every morning and it wakes me up and gets me going. I also use it 20 minutes in the evening and it feels like it helps me heal from the day. I am sleeping well, I love it.” said Ms Will.

Peter Simonson, President of Juvent said, “Maggie’s success with the Juvent Micro-Impact platform is very rewarding to hear. Everyone at Juvent is very excited about our product and the ability of our multi-patented micro-impact technology to help reinvigorate the golf games of not only professionals like Maggie Will but more importantly its helping the weekend-golfers across the county continue playing their favorite sport pain-free.”

An FDA Registered Class I medical exercise and rehabilitation device, the Juvent Pro delivers thousands of low-magnitude and high-frequency micro-impact pulses that enter through the heels of the feet and move up the entire body. These micro-impacts uniquely stimulate the body’s muscles and bones promoting circulation, joint health and healing. Users simply stand on the Juvent for as little as 10 minutes per day and many start feeling results within days. Recommended and used by world-renowned trainers, doctors, physical therapists, and chiropractors, the Juvent Pro is changing the way athletes are approaching training and recovery.

Juvent also works with The David Leadbetter Golf Academy and is an Official Proud Partner of the NFL Alumni Association (NFLA). Juvent is a Corporate Advisory Roundtable Member of the National Osteoporosis Foundation

Chicago, Ill. (PRWEB) April 10, 2015

Retrofit, the corporate weight management solution driving leading outcomes at the nation’s top employers, announces today that it has recruited former Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company global brand strategist and innovator Julie Newhouse Goldman to oversee marketing and product divisions at its Chicago, Ill. headquarters.

On the heels of the recent sales team expansion, the announcement marks a series of high-talent hires and steady growth for Retrofit. CEO Mary Pigatti brought in Goldman as VP of Marketing and Product Management to oversee the teams and assist with product innovation and marketing its targeted weight management solution for America’s largest employers.

“Julie’s experience in global marketing and strategic planning is a perfect compliment to our short-term and long-term strategic goals” said Pigatti. “Her track record as a results-driven innovator in health and wellness will allow us to bring next practices and first-in-class products to employers as part of a high-tech, high-touch solution.”

Goldman brings more than 20 years of global marketing, innovation, strategy and wellness experience to Retrofit. She previously served as Senior Director, Global Brand Strategy and leader of Global Wellness for the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company. Prior to her role at Wrigley, she served as Director, Health and Wellness Marketing for PepsiCo. She also oversaw influencer programming and blue ribbon health and wellness advisory boards at Frito Lay, the Quaker Oats Company and the Clorox Company. Goldman is a graduate of The University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind. and received her M.B.A from The Anderson School at University of California, Los Angeles.

“The obesity epidemic is a global issue in need of a proven solution like Retrofit,” said Goldman. “I look forward to helping the leadership team capitalize on its steady momentum with employers and leading the Marketing and Product teams in further building the Retrofit brand and introducing new and enhanced Retrofit product offerings that meet and exceed the needs of our customers today and in the future.”

Retrofit is currently offered to employees at Google, Salesforce.com, DeVry Education Group, the American Hospital Association and more. The weight loss solution includes proactive one-on-one coaching, interactive video classes and expert moderated communities that work with cutting-edge mobile apps and devices.

The national weight management company has been making national headlines as it aims to deliver the most personalized, effective and sustainable results. In fact, 90% of its clients lose weight and 68% keep it off 18 months later. Retrofit clients are two times more satisfied than those on other weight loss programs, according to a recent customer satisfaction survey.

A Duke University study found that as an individual’s BMI rises, his or her healthcare costs skyrocket and each overweight or obese employee costs employers nearly $ 1,500 a year in added healthcare costs.
