Meet EileenEileen heard about the Healthy Living Center through her sister Linda, who was coming to work out and take classes after work. Since the location and hours were convenient, and the price is hard to beat, Eileen resolved to begin taking classes when the weather got better. She started out by learning how to do the hydraulic resistance circuit with her sister. The comfort and accountability of having a workout partner helped to keep Eileen coming back for more. When she started taking classes, Eileen appreciated the Healthy Living Center’s effort to provide modified exercises for every beginner.

Eileen’s favorite part of the Healthy Living Center is the people – “If I didn’t like the atmosphere, I wouldn’t come.” She has made close friends with other regulars in the arthritis treatment class, Enhance Fitness.

On top of the social benefits, Eileen has experienced noticeable improvements in performing day-to-day activities as she increases overall mobility and balance. Changing the shower curtains used to be a nearly impossible task; now, Eileen can lift her hands above her head without a problem. She says, “It’s the little things you take for granted, like getting in and out of the car. I went to Disney and walked for hours in 90 degree weather with no problem because I came here!”
