We’re so excited about the changes and improvements made to the challenge this year! From the name & overall concept, to the activity points competition, and utilizing the Quad as an awesome party venue! Congrats to all who participated, and we hope to see you in our “Maintain, Don’t Gain” program starting in March! Continue reading The Wellness & Lifestyle Challenge 2017 Wrap-Up
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 accomplishments:
Within one year of joining Elite, Gerry & Donald Vogel both lost significant amounts of weight. Gerry lost 60 pounds, and Donald lost 40 pounds. They exercised four or five times a week and were pleased when their entire fitness profiles improved.
Over the years, Gerry and Donald have utilized and enjoyed a variety of programs at Elite including: healthy eating programs, pilates, and the exercise machines. Donald attends pilates twice a week and uses the bike, treadmill, elliptical, and weights on other days. Gerry began taking treading classes when they first joined and now she uses a combination of the elliptical, bike, and treadmill four days a week and weights two to three times a week.
Their short term goals were to lose weight and increase their total fitness. Happy with their results so far, they still strive to maintain and improve upon their overall fitness.
“There have been so many positive experiences during our time here,” Gerry explains. “We have met so many people and that is a big part of getting us here every day. The interaction with the training staff has been so beneficial. Having knowledgeable professionals who encourage you to improve and who correct you if needed. Elite is a major part of our lives because of the professional and social contacts. The parties are great too!”
Gerry and Donald have been members since 2001 and continue to stay active at the club. Submit your own “Elite” story! Or tweet us @MyEliteStory!
