Lori - From cancer diagnosis to strong and back on her feet

Lori - May 2015 and December 2015I joined in July because I wanted to adopt a healthier lifestyle and regular exercise routine due to a high blood pressure report from my doctor. The benefits I gained have made a significant impact on me. I tried different classes, accepted challenges I never would have thought I would accept, and met friends/other members with whom I have formed a fitness comradery.

We cheer one another on and encourage each other to go to the next level. The fitness center team also encouraged me along the way, kept me informed about classes, new challenges and ways to improve. My personal trainer introduced me to weights and equipment I had not previously used, and worked with me to improve my posture. To date, I have lost 34 pounds and I feel better than I have in my whole life. I am so grateful that my employer provides the amazing benefit of the on-site fitness center!
