Vicki Doe Fitness.com
Founded by Haywood Doe Consulting Co., LLC.: DBA Vicki Doe Fitness
is a multimedia health and wellness forum to discuss, teach, implement, and participate in healthy living. This platform was created based on the many years of the health wellness company going out into the community developing nutrition, exercise, and health programs and realizing that people wanted a place to discuss and ask real questions; “one on one” with the health providers, the exercise and nutrition experts.
Folks wanted to talk about their problems, and get honest, “keeping it real” answers from their health wellness experts. They also wanted to hear what others had to say. They wanted encouragement and social support from others who were as themselves trying to commit to living a healthy lifestyle.
Our mission is to provide a platform for individuals and communities to participate and enjoy the “art of healthy living”. On this interactive website, we want individuals to get involved in this healthy living movement, learn, discuss, and do what is in their best interest. We provide research-based health wellness information in various ways:
- written articles
- podcast shows- “It’s All About Health & Fitness”
- online health fitness programs and courses
- Online Vicki Doe Fitness-Health Fitness Training
for folks to integrate into their everyday lives. At the end of the day, we want individuals to realize that doing something healthy and beneficial for themselves every day will yield positive health outcomes.
“Step by Step to a better you”
This for-profit health and wellness company was founded by Dr. Vicki Haywood Doe in 1997 with the name of Vicki Doe Fitness Arts Studio in the Youngstown Northeast Ohio area. It started as a small fitness studio catering to health and fitness issues of the underrepresented population- African Americans and minorities and to the community at large.
Today, our company has evolved into a health wellness consulting company with the name of Haywood Doe Consulting Co. LLC (name as of 2012): DBA Vicki Doe Fitness that specializes in designing/ implementing applied exercise physiology based lifestyle interventions, medical exercise services, health promotion, and lifestyle education specifically for special populations*- (older, children, overweight/obese, or high-risk individuals with chronic diseases, women’s health) for on-site and online health wellness programs-including businesses, churches, schools, and organizations, etc.

We embrace the concept of ” the total well-being” taking a holistic approach when we create sustainable programs to enhance and impact our quality of life. We realize that to improve health and wellness we need to not only focus on physical health but mental health, financial health, and other lifestyle components that contribute to an individual’s total well-being. This approach will yield better measurable health outcomes.

What is an exercise physiologist? How can they help me?
An exercise physiologist is an allied health professional who specializes in the benefits of exercise to help clients get healthier and fit and to treat clients with a medical condition through exercise. They can prescribe a course of exercises for either fitness or rehabilitation/post-rehab. Exercise physiologists work with clients with medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, lung disease, and other chronic conditions to regain their health and quality of life.
Research has shown that both exercise and healthy nutrition play a critical role in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases. Individuals with chronic diseases may have unique challenging limitations.
However, both exercise and healthy nutrition can provide significant health fitness functional outcomes such as:
- reduced disease symptoms
- lower blood pressure
- lower HbA1C and blood glucose
- lower cholesterol levels
- increased cardiovascular fitness
- increased muscular strength and flexibility
- decreased body mass index (BMI)
- reduced medication reliance
- and overall enhancement of quality of life
