New Beginnings for Weddle, at-risk women
By Linda Bryant
Natasha Weddle is a strength and conditioning coach who has worked with college sports teams at the University of Tennessee, Kent State University, Purdue and Vanderbilt.
Among the athletes she found herself working with were members of coach Pat Summitt’s back-to-back national championship women’s basketball teams of 1997 and 1998.
Four years ago, Weddle decided she wanted to take her professional skills in a new direction. She founded the New Beginnings Center, a non-profit wellness and fitness studio for low and moderate income women.
