Westfield resident Eaton provides healthy tips


Westfield resident Caroline Eaton wants to teach people how to live a healthy lifestyle by breaking it down into weekly challenges. Her program, One Year Fit, offers one new healthy habit per week to create a sustainable healthy lifestyle.

Eaton’s experience as a personal trainer is what inspired the new program.

“I started training at a gym in Chicago. I found it interesting that everyone wanted to change their lifestyle, but they felt overwhelmed by it,” Eaton said. “They would always give me excuses like they were too busy or it wasn’t realistic for their lifestyle. I took everyone’s feedback and created this course.”

Each week participants are emailed one healthy habit to focus on. Habits include drinking more water, how to grocery shop smarter, getting more sleep and cleaning out the pantry.

“These things are very basic concepts for a healthy lifestyle, but no one takes the time to see how these habits look in their lifestyle. One Year Fit breaks down this overwhelming feeling of changing your lifestyle to one-week challenges that are accomplishable,” Eaton said.

Participants can start the program at any time throughout the year and can participate from anywhere. There also is a Facebook group for participants to share ideas and support.

“At any point in time in the social group you have someone that is ahead of you in the program or you are ahead of someone else. So, if you ask a question in the social group there is always someone that is either a mentor or a mentee,” Eaton said.

She wants people to focus on healthy lifestyle habits instead of only diet and exercise.

“I’m so passionate about it. I just want to share it with as many people as possible,” Eaton said.

The program is $99 and available at oneyear.fit
