Francine Bigney IDEA Author/Presenter

A history of obesity prompted my interest in health and fitness and I have maintained my weight loss for over 35 years. I am an ACE Gold Certified Personal Trainer, ACE Certified Health Coach, AFAA Certified Instructor, Lisenced Zumba Instructor and current in BLS. I created and actively managed the Community Health Department for over 9 years and then started and actively managed the Cardiac Rehabilitation Department for 8 years at a local critical access hospital. I believe in giving back and as such, I have co-coordinated the Dixville Half-Marathon, a local fundraising USATF half-marathon and relay race and also run it. Additionally, I am a long standing member of the National Weight Registry and the Sister Study. My goal is to help others "be the best they can be."
