Rosemarie came back from a trip and thanked the pool staff for helping her have an amazing experience. She hiked the “Great Divide”! Her preparation allowed her to hike 17 miles one day as a septuagenarian, she is over 70! She worried about being left behind as she hiked but found that she was just as fast and strong as anyone else in the group. In preparation, she was working with a personal trainer once a week and coming to aqua aerobics 3 times per week. She shares that she never would have been able to have this amazing experience if it weren’t for the aqua classes, trainer, and the awesome benefits of The Health and Fitness Center.
With friendships made at The Health and Fitness Center, Sandy had travel companions to visit Nepal. While there she was able to hike, walk and see the sights, after participating faithfully in all the aqua aerobics classes. She was grateful for the leg strength that she developed through participation in the aqua classes.
Arlene is scheduled to see her orthopedic surgeon for knee replacement at the end of the month. However, with doing three classes a week in the pool, she has gained strength, balance, and range of motion. Enough that she will be discussing a delay for surgery instead of a date!
It is wonderful to hear these stories so often. They lend importance and urgency to our job of helping people “Live Life to the Fittest!”
Please visit the Member Services desk and ask about how you can submit your success story. You can encourage other members at the facility through stories on personal training, group exercises, health programs and more.
