When it comes to having a healthy, active lifestyle, Jordan and Alexandra Anderson are here to help.
The young Cambridge couple started a new business called Think Active Fitness and invite the public to join them May 12 at the Cambridge Armed Forces Reserve and Community Center for their Health & Wellness Seminar.
Part of the event will be to introduce their community-wide 30-day challenge.
“We’ll have boot camp workouts on weekends,” Jordan said. “It’s going to be pretty fun.”
At the end of the challenge, two people will win grand prizes for best transformation.
“Our main goal is to educate people on the state of our foods, environment, mental health and diseases, and show them how they can take steps to prevent sickness and live healthier lifestyles,” Alexandra said.
Both 2005 Cambridge-Isanti High School graduates, Jordan and Alexandra moved back to Cambridge last summer from Hawaii, where Jordan was stationed with the Marine Corps.
“This is a passion that developed over the years,” Jordan said. “Before I was in the Marines and got into health, my friend and I were both really little guys. He started weightlifting and I thought ‘I want to do that.’ That inspired me to learn more about nutrition. Going into the Marine Corps fitness developed that passion even more. It’s a very physically-demanding job.”
Alexandra describes she and her husband as “personal trainers, health and wellness coaches, entrepreneurs, Marine Corps veteran family and self-certified health nuts.”
Part of their excitement comes from the nutrition program she said changed their lives called Isagenix, which they include as part of their regimen. The Andersons are putting on the May 12 event with Emily Lind and Hayden Vavra, with whom they work in their Isagenix businesses.
“We have been able to shed extra body fat that we weren’t able to lose no matter how hard we worked in the gym,” Alexandra said.
As part of their business, she and Jordan hope to help veterans and their families.
“We’ve been working with a lot of military, mainly with nutrition and with Isagenix that we incorporate in our clients’ routines,” Alexandra said.
Jordan used Isagenix while he was in the Marines. Now back home, he’s helping other veterans use the products to start their own small businesses.
Ultimately, the couple hopes to open a studio for one-on-one personal training.
“You only have one body, so treat it right,” Alexandra said. “Living a healthy lifestyle will go a long way in preventing sickness.”
The Health & Wellness Seminar takes place at the Cambridge Armed Forces Reserve and Community Center on May 12 from 11 a.m. to noon. The event is free and open to the public.
