I'm the host of Wellness 101. As an award-winning producer, writer and TV host, I'm excited to be leading this unique venture, combining various forms of media and events to help consumers connect with the amazing world of wellness. I love golf, travel and my wife of 22 years Jane Ali (I saved the best for last). In the summer of 2014, I launched Wellness 101 by golfing and promoting wellness in every state -- 50 states in 101 days! You can read about my journey, which continues, in the Wellness 101 blog. From my family to yours, here's to your health!
Yes, I am ``sassy`` and I live life in the same way. Getting out there and doing all the things I love to do. Working with Wellness 101 as a Producer gives me the ability to promote people, products and lifestyle philosophies that impact what you put ``On Your Body``, ``In Your Body`` and ``Around Your Body``. I love all aspects of wellness as the owner of All Over Wellness, as a certified Holistic Health Coach, Personal Trainer, Reiki Master and being able to educate and consult with people about their overall health and happiness. We are all coming together to help you and the communities you live in to be happier and healthier.

Dr. James Pinckney II, CEO & Founder of Diamond Physicians. You may have seen Dr. James on Vistaprint commercials recently.

He doesn't just take the time to get to know each patient, he's available to them 24 hours a day and aims to reverse disease instead of only prescribing drugs! Oh, and one more thing... I just found out that in 2013 he raised the bar forever with the greatest wedding proposal ever (http://www.eonline.com/news/506178/supermodel-quiana-grant-s-surprise-proposal-is-so-incredibly-cute-watch-the-entire-thing-go-down). www.diamondphysicians.com

Dr. Glasper is owner and founder of Revive Dental, and leader of the “Teach Me Dental” movement, is redefining the way people understand and treat their dental health. A fierce advocate for the practice of comprehensive dentistry, Dr. Denise believes that too often patients approach the care of their mouths separate from the care of rest of their bodies. Shortly after Dr. Denise graduated from dental school, she diagnosed and treated her own mother who had been suffering for a long time from periodontal disease. Dr. Denise's passion for her craft was forged in that moment. Because of that experience she has become a gift to the world, saving lives by educating people about the importance of oral health as it relates to overall health. www.revivesmile.com
Wellness is the complete integration of body, mind, and spirit - the realization that everything we do, think, feel, and behave has an effect on our state of well-being.
There are six components of wellness: proper weight and diet, proper excercise, breaking the smoking habit, control of alcohol, stress management and periodic exams.
