September Video Testimonial:  Workplace Wellness!

This month marks 10 years since we opened for business.  We thought we’d mark the anniversary by doing things a little different this month.  So instead of our usual exercise tutorial or nutrition tip, we thought we’d share a testimonial from someone we’ve had the privilege of helping through our Corporate Wellness Programming.  Check out what Cindy has to say about what’s been going on at her office since their management team brought us in to revitalize their Employee Wellness Program!

New Decade, New Vision

It was on Thursday, September 27, 2007 that John A. Gale, serving as Nebraska’s Secretary of State, filed the Articles of Organization for Kennedy Fitness, LLC.  Just days later, I was asked by 24 Hour Fitness and the United States Olympic Committee to staff the Olympic Games in Beijing, China.  So it wasn’t until the following April that Kristin and I fully realized our dream of offering “Private, Professional, Personal Training” to the Omaha metro.  Nonetheless, this newsletter marks the end of Kennedy Fitness’s first decade in business!

What began as two NASM Certified Personal Trainers with two duffel bags full of resistance bands, medicine balls, and some adjustable dumbbells (but only a handful of clients) has blossomed into a team of 7 outstanding trainers catering to a list of nearly 500 past, current and prospective clients.  So where are we heading from here?  Only time will tell, but we believe corporate wellness programming will be a significant factor.  We’ve discovered we can help more people, in less time, for a lower cost per person, by providing on-site wellness programming at businesses.  

With this in mind, we’re pleased to announce that we are re-branding our business to better reflect our new vision for this next decade:  KENNEDY FITNESS:  PERSONAL TRAINING & CORPORATE WELLNESS SPECIALISTS.  We’re also very excited to launch will still promote our one-on-one personal training services, but this new site will soon cater specifically to businesses and other organizations that wish to provide top-notch wellness programming for their staff and members without having to build such a program from scratch!

To all of you who we’ve met through the course of growing Kennedy Fitness these past 10 years; thank you.  Whether you’ve touched our lives as a trainer, a client, or in some other way, we believe it’s safe to say we’ve been incredibly blessed to meet you, and we look forward to discovering what these next 10 years have in store!

Yours in health,

Robert M. Kennedy
President & CEO

Easy Baked Turkey Meatballs


  • 2 pounds 100% ground turkey breast
  • 1/2 cup unseasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup carrot
  • 1/4 cup onion
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Dash of red pepper flakes (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Finely mince carrot and onion by hand or in a food processor and then combine all ingredients. Use your hands to gently mix.

Shape meatballs into 2-tablespoon-sized-balls and place on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.

Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees, checking at 30 minutes to ensure there is no pink in the middle of the meatballs. Cook for 5 more minutes if needed.

Serve with pasta or spaghetti squash, and your favorite tomato sauce. You can veg it up by adding sautéed onion, zucchini, red pepper, and grape tomatoes.

You can freeze the meatballs in a plastic bag in the freezer for up to 3 months, letting them defrost in the fridge or microwave before eating.
