WKMS welcomed another new underwriter recently - Eric Romanak and SEVA Fitness in Paducah. 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.
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.
