Busy Mom Loses 50 Pounds with the Support of Trainers and Staff
Before joining the fitness center, Paula had several challenges. She had two small children and a husband that worked 24-hour shifts. She was also working part-time and was finding it difficult to find time for herself. Paula was always exhausted. She belonged to another fitness center before and never felt like she fit in. She was hesitant to join Northwestern Medicine Huntley Health & Fitness Center but now she has used her membership more in the last 3 years than ever.
“Since I joined Northwestern Medicine Huntley Health & Fitness Center, I have made many new friends and found instructors that help keep me motivated through a variety of fitness classes. This connection has helped me stay motivated and committed to my fitness and health goals. Overall, the members of the center are courteous and respectful to each other and the workout space that is shared (upstairs),” says Paula.
The most significant impact on Paula’s life has been the change in her health and physical fitness. Paula has lost over 50 pounds and has regained the energy to do things that she once could not. Paula has changed her daily routine and habits by incorporating 45 minutes or more of exercise daily. If she’s not at the gym, she is running outside. This has helped her maintain a healthy weight.
“The staff and trainers have all been wonderful and supportive. Anytime I have a question or concern, they are all willing to help and provide information to support my fitness goals. While I have not used a personal trainer for any specific sessions, I have asked for help with machines or when lifting weights to ensure that I am doing it properly. I have built strong connections with fitness instructors and consider them to be one of the most valuable assets that your center offers. I keep coming back because of the staff, the other members, and the many different opportunities offered here.”
Paula has made many connections and friendships with the members at the center. They have become her second family and are always supporting each other through challenges and happy times. It has only made her more committed to coming to the center to work out.
When asked if she would recommend Northwestern Medicine Huntley Health & Fitness Center, Paula says:
“Like any other experience, if you don’t try it, you don’t know if you can be successful or enjoy it. There is so much to offer at every different fitness level. I would strongly recommend the center to anyone looking to improve their health and fitness because of how successful and motivated I am now. The center has changed my life for many reasons. The most important reason to join is the variety of workouts that are available to members.”
