Lynn H / On Turning 70
If you have been in any class in either the “big” gym or wellness with me this week you are all too aware that we have incorporated 70 push ups into each and every class, a total of 9 classes for me or 630 pushups later!!
Before this birthday I thought a great deal about what it means to age. I had breast cancer two years ago, I have arthritis and osteoporosis,both hips and half of one knee have been replaced, but I am strong and love going to the gym.
I love the workouts, the friendships and the challenges.
Going each morning to Harbor is more than routine. I have made so many friends and met so many interesting people of all ages and I have been able to watch myself get stronger and more fit over the years.
The idea of 70 pushups came out of my need to prove to myself that I could do it and to let younger people know that exercise can be fun at any age, as well as essential.
Fact in point , I am not afraid to fall on the ice because I have a great strong core that will help keep me safe, I can play on the floor and on the trampoline with my grand children, I can laugh, cough and sneeze without fear, and I can do the splits!
Thanks to all the wonderful instructors for helping me get here. Thanks to all the friends that keep me coming to class.
My plan is to do 80 in ten years.
Carla J / Outstanding Kids Club
I have been a member at Harbor since September 2007 and have long wished to share with you how fantastic Harbor’s Kids Club has been. The ladies in the Kids Club have been the friendliest, most dedicated team of child care providers that I have known! I have been pleasantly surprised that I have seen zero turnover of the staff in the last year and a half that we have been coming. It is highly unusual for any position not to experience turnover, so that leads me to believe that the KidsClub staff really love their jobs! This is evident not only in their longevity, but in their demeanor. The staff at Kidscare is always up-beat, they are extremely talented with children and babies, and friendly with parents. Generally, in a letter of this nature, I would single out one particular person who really impressed me. I am in the unusual position of not being able to single out any one person. I honestly feel the entire staff at KidsClub is really doing an exceptional job.
Thank you for providing such outstanding people to care for my children while I exercise. When I was considering signing up at Harbor, the quality of the KidsClub was the single most important factor in my decision to join. When I learned that Wendi Kuehn was the Director of Kids Club I knew my children would be in very capable hands. Wendi is extremely hard working and very dedicated. Since that very first day, l have never once been disappointed. You should be proud that you are able to offer first-class care to your members.
Alan H / Warm Water Rehab
I had hip replacement surgery 4 years ago, and my Doctor suggested that I take up water aerobics before surgery to firm up my muscles & bone mass. After my operation, I could hardly wait to get back to my water aerobics class. First, I went to the warm water pool to join the arthritis class for stretching and range of motion & then back to the lap pool for more strenuous workouts. Since the water is so buoyant, I have had no problems with my hip joint and love the workouts with my class mates. The instructors are all great with various routines & music which adds to the enjoyment. Another side benefit is that I have lowered my weight & have been able to maintain. I really miss my water aerobics class when I am not able to get to Harbor, where I have made many new friendships with their wonderful staff & members. My wife Harriet also participates in water aerobics & loves it too.
Stan R / Regaining and Active Lifestyle
Harbor has been a tremendous help to our lives over the past 5 years. In 2008, I had a hip that became infected, crippling me so that I could only walk very short distances using a walker.
My wife talked to the Harbor staff and they recommended that I participate in the warm water pool exercise classes. It was great as I was able to walk in the water and do many of the exercises.
It got me out of the house every day for a period of 3 months, relieving my frustration of not being able to bike and play hockey until I had the hip replaced.
The unisex dressing room enabled my wife to help me change clothes which I could not do alone.
Harbor is an important part of our lives as my wife attends classes 5 days per week, every week.
“Stan is 78 years old and is again playing hockey and biking. This testimonial shows the importance of Harbor in his regaining a very active lifestyle.
