You might be tempted to think of barbells and treadmills and lots of lycra when you think about fitness, but that's not really what SEVA Fitness is about.&nbsp;</p><p>Eric explains what he does as a "health first" approach, meaning instead of just working to "look better," SEVA Fitness strives to help you "feel better" by teaching holistic fitness and health. As a health and wellness coach, Eric offers personal, individualized training incorporating practices like yoga and martial arts to help with mobility, strength, athleticism and even weight loss.&nbsp;</p><p> Fri, 31 Jan 2014 16:12:32 +0000 Asia Burnett 38411 at http://wkms.org Underwriter Spotlight: SEVA Fitness in Paducah APSU to Hold Second Walk to Afghanistan Project http://wkms.org/post/apsu-hold-second-walk-afghanistan-project <p>The Clarksville, Tenn., Mayor’s Fitness Council joins Austin Peay State University’s second Walk to Afghanistan Project to honor deployed soldiers. Participants in the October 22 event, which include families of the 101st Combat Aviation Brigade, are encouraged to walk the distance from Clarksville to Afghanistan. That’s roughly 10,644 miles. Project organizers will hold other Walk to Afghanistan events during the coming months but suggest participants to schedule their own impromptu walking events. Participants can sign in for the October walk at the Governor’s stadium from 4:30 p.m. Thu, 18 Oct 2012 13:21:08 +0000 Whitney Jones & The Associated Press 23395 at http://wkms.org APSU to Hold Second Walk to Afghanistan Project Statistical Analysis Shows Poor Health in Western Ky.
