“You can’t put low-grade gasoline into a high performance automotive engine and expect that the machine will work effectively and efficiently.”
That's the philosophy of Amy Viselli, the newest addition to the Sparrow Michigan Athletic Club (MAC) fitness staff. Amy holds degrees in dietetics and kinesiology – with a health promotion specialization – from Michigan State University, and completed a dietetic internship at Loyola University in Chicago.
“My passion is to educate and to encourage healthy lifestyle behaviors to improve overall health," Amy says. “From my experience in working in both clinical and community settings, I have seen how essential the combination of good nutrition and consistent exercise really is for achieving good health.”
A registered dietitian, Amy has experience working in both clinical and community settings. As a member of the fitness staff at the Michigan Athletic Club, Amy will provide individual dietitian services, nutrition counseling, and will hold free seminars for members on nutrition for health. Topics may include general nutrition, fueling your athlete, healthy holiday nutrition, and nutrition and diabetes. She has been a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (previously known as the American Dietetic Association) since 2009, and has served on the Michigan Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics conference committee since 2010.
A four-year varsity letter winner on the Michigan State University women’s diving team, Amy knows firsthand what it means to fuel the body for performance.
“Physical activity coupled with proper nutrition relieves stress, provides energy, heightens my attentiveness, and boosts my enthusiasm for life,” Viselli says. “I am looking forward to the opportunity to provide nutrition guidance to interested members and to developing programs that will highlight nutrition counseling, as well as offering seminars and working with the Sparrow Be Well program.”
