May 2018 Member of the Month
What she accomplished
- Quickly returned to active lifestyle following total hip replacement surgery
- Inspires staff and members
How she did it:
- Dedication to Large Group Fitness classes
On January 8, 2018, I had a total hip replacement. Prior to that, I was a gym rat. I was here every morning for the 5:15 a.m. classes.
After my hip replacement, I eased back in with aqua classes a couple times a week. As I began to heal, I started taking land classes again. When the instructors saw how quickly I came back and did modified versions of the classes, they really encouraged me. That has helped me with my recovery.
I am almost completely back to normal and feel my recover went really fast, in part due to the help from the other members and instructors. I love the large group fitness classes at Innovative Health & Fitness. You can be pushed if you want to be pushed, but you’ll also be encouraged to do the movements at your own level.
While, I am much older than most of the others in the classes I take I don’t really think about it. We have such a fun morning group and everyone starts the day right.
Many thanks to Rose, Laura & Dan from BodyAttack; Amy from BodyCombat; Thu Van, Kevin & Tina from BodyPump and Insanity, and to all the members in the classes who encourage me. That has helped me with getting back to normal. I have made many great friends through the classes and instructors at this club. I do not think there are any other clubs that are so friendly.
