Moms Who Rock Contest – Happy Body Wellness


Our Richmond Moms stay so busy keeping their kids fit and healthy, but now it’s their turn! Bethany from Happy Body Wellness is here to keep our special winner looking and feeling her very best!

Happy Body Wellness

Happy Body Wellness was started in Richmond, Virginia by Bethany Watkins, a Registered Dietitian, on the belief that nutrition, fitness, stress management, and rest are all integral parts of our well-being. Bethany’s method of nutrition counseling is one that focuses on showing her clients how their bodies interact with food. Understanding the effects that food has on the body is at the center of the Happy Body approach. Once one understands the relationship between food and well-being, it is easier to build a foundation of positive habits and behaviors.

A core belief of Happy Body Wellness is that nutritional counseling and services should offer a realistic approach to improving one’s life. Life should not be about obsessing over food choices, numbers on the scale, or involve crash diets and cleanses. We strive to provide every client with the skills to make informed healthy food choices and informed decisions regarding nutrition. Once these skills are learned, you can utilize them throughout life to sustain the achieved goal of a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Happy Body Wellness

Working with Bethany as your dietitian and following her approach will grant you the opportunity to understand the reasoning behind healthy behaviors. Clients working with Happy Body Wellness will have an exciting nutritional experience; an experience that enables them to take control of their life and ultimately their health. Bethany offers comprehensive wellness counseling including nutritional guidance, fitness coaching, stress management strategies, and techniques to improve sleeping habits.

As a team, we will determine a wellness plan that helps you accomplish your goals and sustain a healthier, happier lifestyle. Each one of us is unique and requires a different recipe for success and a healthy lifestyle; the Happy Body Wellness mission is to make that happen!

When not wearing her Dietitian hat, Bethany life is packed with physical activity as she spends her time training clients, teaching various fitness classes at five separate clubs around the Richmond area, and training for triathlons and other endurance races. In addition, Happy Body Wellness hosts private fitness parties for all different celebratory events including weddings, children and adult birthdays, bachelorette parties, and team building.

Bethany enthusiastically looks forward to sharing her health, wellness and fitness knowledge as she motivates and inspires you to get and stay healthy.
