Your Health Sense is a nutrition and fitness coaching company created by Kim Raubenheimer. Kim has always been passionate about healthy living. Kim integrates her diverse background to create an all-encompassing approach to fitness and nutrition. Kim's mission is to help educate children and adults about the importance of physical activity and healthy nutrition for life, with small palatable changes over time. Healthy living is not just about being active, but also how you move your body, what you put in and on your body, the quality of your sleep, and your stress management.
She knows the importance of healthy nutrition and fitness. Kim taught cycling and muscle conditioning while exercising throughout both pregnancies. Kim also healed her diastasis (recognized after baby #2) through a custom exercise program. Her 2nd son was born the day after she taught an hour long cycling class (on the bike). She knows about taking on challenges and has run the Boston Marathon (3 times, 2 times for Team in Training) and the New York Marathon. Kim participated in the Spartan Race held at Fenway Park on November 17th, 2012. She placed 12th in her age group, 934 out of 2,538 participants and 197th out of the 920 women that participated. She placed 2,827 out of 8,005 in Spartan Fenway in November 2013. Despite a knee injury (not sustained in the race!) and lack of training, Kim finished Spartan Fenway 2014. Kim is training for the Falmouth Road Race 2015 with her friends for a "turning 50 years young" challenge.
Kim also understands the challenges families face when trying to stay in shape, eat healthy, prepare quick healthy meals and achieve fitness goals. Kim juggles her Nutrition and Fitness Coaching business, while being a Mom, a freelance Print Producer and a freelance Staffing agent/HR manager for an IT company. Kim practices what she preaches. She feels kids need healthy role models and has had her boys in the kitchen helping since they were 2. Children will often imitate your behavior.
Kim is a volunteer, Roger Wellington Elementary School Green Committee member and the PTA/PTO Green Alliance member in Belmont, MA. These Green Teams are trying to initiate programs in the schools and the community that will help educate the kids, parents, and schools about the importance of healthy living which include ways to be good to the environment as well as your body. Kim has also joined the Belmont School Committee, Health and Wellness.
Kim is also a nutrition and fitness contributing blogger for the Belmont Health Collaborative. http://www.belmonthealth.com/contributing-bloggers. Please take the survey to let us know what your health and wellness interests are.
She has also co-created the Greater Boston Health and Wellness Collaborative. This group consists of self-employed professionals working in our
community who dedicate their careers to supporting the health and
wellness of children, families, and seniors. This is a collaborative
forum to share ideas, questions, and resources.
When Kim is not talking about nutrition, teaching fitness classes, or training for a new fitness event, she is having fun with her husband and two young boys. You might find her doing something fun outside, cooking a new recipe, camping, biking, or hiking with her busy boys.
