Elite Sports Clubs Member Stories-Nancy Ullman

We’re extremely proud of our members. Over the years their work out agendas and sporting endeavors serve as healthy examples of how it feels to be “Elite,” and how exercise not only adds years to your life, but life to your years! Today we’d like to highlight another member’s experience:

Elite in the Community: Music Festival & 5K Trail Run

Last weekend Elite Sports Clubs once again had the opportunity to sponsor and participate in the Gathering on the Green music & performing arts festival and Run on the Green 5k Trail Run/Walk & Youth Fun Run in Mequon.

On Friday night we hosted a booth before the ABBA tribute show and demoed some of the exercises we can now offer using the new outdoor boot camp facility at Elite Sports Club-Mequon.

On Saturday morning we helped put on another successful year of Run on the Green, featuring a new double loop route through Rotary Park. Runners experienced paved, grass, and gravel trails; along with musical performing acts from K-Nation along the way. Not to mention the Jimmy Luv’s bloody marys post-race!

To wrap things up on Saturday evening before the final orchestra show featuring the great grandchildren of the Von Trapps, plus musical fireworks; we set up a QuickStart 10 & Under Tennis court in the children’s area for kids to play and learn about tennis.

All in all, it was another successful year. The weather was great, we met a lot of fun people, and got to show of all the cool stuff happening at Elite. We are really enjoying getting out into our communities this summer!
