Let’s Get Physical

At Marc Allen Orthodontics, we aren’t just committed to healthy teeth, but healthy minds and bodies too.

Dr. Marc Allen firmly believes in the familiar adage, “Sound Body, Sound Mind.”

To further instill this way of thinking, Marc Allen Orthodontics has transformed their upstairs into a fully functional exercise room! Twice weekly, you can find the ladies of Marc Allen Orthodontics strengthening their core with an on-sight trainer. Once a week, employees are even invited to join a group exercise class to burn off some steam and extra calories. “Sound Body, Sound Mind” isn’t complete without taking diet into account though. With that in mind, Dr. Marc Allen also provides his team with in house and online nutritional and wellness coaching.

But what’s working out with out a little prize at the end of the tunnel? Well there is a light at the end of the tunnel and we’re not just referring to the obvious health benefits of this all encompassing life enhancement challenge. The Marc Allen Orthodontics team is competing in the Eat Well. Live Well Charlotte fitness challenge. At Dr. Marc Allen’s office, the staff has their eye on the prize and they are following four principles:

  • Strive for 5 cups of fruits and vegetables a day
  • Get moving
  • Count your calories- so watch your portions
  • Measure your progress

4 weeks in and the team is still pulling ahead in the polls. Could Marc Allen Orthodontics win the Eat Well. Live Well challenge? Stay tuned to find out progress and updates as we progress in the challenge!
