Here at Odom Health & Wellness, we believe everyone should have a chance to fulfill their own fitness goals, whether it be walking without pain, losing weight, or setting a new person record for a distance race. Our team takes a holistic approach to patient care, and we customize that plan on an individual basis to help them achieve their goals. We are so thankful for the opportunity to help our patients, and we always look forward to seeing them in the clinic. When our current and past patients pass on wonderful stories like the one below, it helps to strengthen the bond between patient and provider. We value these relationships, and we value the health and well-being of our communities.
“I was dragged to Ladies Night at Odom Health and Wellness. A friend said there’d be food and fabulous prizes. We arrived late and were greeted with, “Hurry! Get your names in the bowl for the prize drawings.” The big buzz was the grand prize: 3 months of nutritional counseling with Maggie and 3 free months of personal training with John. Winning slips were drawn for massages and gift baskets. But the big draw was yet to come. Amanda reached in and pulled out the slip, smiled and read off my name. Honestly, I was horrified. I was out-of-shape, overweight, and nowhere near ready to address it.”
“Before I left that evening, I had my first appointment set up with Maggie and my first 3 personal training sessions scheduled with John. I spent the weekend trying to come up with plausible excuses for why I’d need to cancel. Truthfully, guilt got me in to Odom Health and Wellness that first day. Everybody wanted what I’d been given and I had to at least give it a try. Then I could quit, I figured.”
“Fast forward 2 1/2 years. I am still training with John and occasionally checking in with Maggie. I have lost more than 40 pounds, and equally as important, I have the strength and confidence to believe I will reach my goals and be able to maintain them.”
“Maggie got me going on a nutrition plan to kickstart my weight loss and when I began to plateau, she enthusiastically agreed to help try a new tack. John Edwards has never once entertained the idea that I could fail. He continually challenges me, never allowing me to underestimate what I’m capable of. Jumping jacks were a challenge when I began, and last summer I worked my way up to running a 10k. Yes, I have worked hard, but it is the team at Odom who deserve the real credit. ”
“I cannot say enough about the staff at OHW. Their holistic approach and team of caring professionals, not only show you the path to health and fitness but walk beside you on the journey, never letting you lose sight of your goals.”
