We’re Neal and Cristin, and we’re new to the Montana University System Wellness Program. We thought we should introduce ourselves before inundating you with all the fitness and nutrition information you can stand. Our goal is to post practical and relevent nutrition, fitness, and health information at least weekly on this blog, so check back often, or even better–subscribe and you’ll get information sent right to your email. If you need us on a more daily basis, you can check out @montanamoves and @montanameals on the Twitter.
So, about us…
