I am writing this letter to recommend Rena Alseth's company, Core Achievement, for your organization's wellness needs. I've had the pleasure of knowing Rena for about five years on a personal level as well as a professional one.
Metropolitan Council originally hired Rena in 2014 as a consultant to provide 90 Day Weight Loss Programs at some of our bus garages. Her programs were quite comprehensive - five days a week with classes on nutrition, behavior change and exercises. Rena required participants to get a physician approval for the course. She took pre-course measurements and pictures and post-course measurements and pictures. She also provided us with a detailed report after each program. Program results were very impressive, indicating significant weight loss for almost all participants. We've continued to contract with Core Achievement each year since 2014.
Employees who participated in Rena's program wrote testimonials about the program. Almost all described how the program had positively impacted their way of life. Overall, they stated that the combination of exercise and nutrition education was the key - as well as Rena's personal investment in their progress.
I think two of Rena's key strengths are her passion for health and wellness and her ability to motivate others on the road to a healthy lifestyle. She also "walks the talk" - modeling health lifestyle choices herself. She is hardworking and dedicated to her profession.
I believe any organization would benefit from having Core Achievement provide wellness resources to their employees.
