About Maggie Thorison

Outreach and Education Manager for TOPS Club, Inc., a nonprofit weight-loss support organization with thousands of chapters throughout the United States and Canada.

After maintaining a 30-pound weight loss for more than 10 years, I have learned that sustainable weight loss is a work in progress and doesn’t involve quick fixes. Now I stay healthy by batch cooking, weight training and playing with my dogs, Nellie and Stevie. I have a passion for fitness and wellness and love sharing tips for the workplace and every place in my bi-weekly blog.

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Promotion and Wellness, with an emphasis on Fitness and Leadership. That’s where I learned the value of wellness and prevention and how healthy interventions can change people’s lives for the better. Before I came to TOPS, I held an internship at a premier fitness center in the United Kingdom. There, I taught various classes and helped new members achieve their fitness goals.  Today, I work with a talented team at TOPS to help employers provide affordable weight-loss and healthy living programs for their employees. Programs include information on nutrition, motivation and exercises for all ability levels.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Here’s to your health!
