LifeStories

Drew E.
When I started all this back in August 2016 I weighed 330 pounds. This past year I have been running 3 to 4 times a week. I am now down to 277 pounds!
After years of putting on the pounds I decided to join a shared 50 mile ultra marathon August 2016. I started using The Shwellness Center because the race was in October 2016. I am a spouse and lucky enough to use the facility. Once my race was done I continued to run at the Shwellness Center.

Every December there is a Milez challenge and my wife encouraged me to participate with her. I didn't even think that I would hit the 50 miles mark by the end of month. However, I finished with 101 miles at the end of the challenge. I remember joking with Leah and Breana (health coaches at the gym) that I wouldn't be able to hit the 50 mile mark by the end of the month. I look forward to more challenges like this in the future to help motivate and push myself.

When I started all this back in August 2016 I weighed 330 pounds. This past year I have been running 3 to 4 times a week. Also, this past summer I started meeting with a personal trainer 2 days week at the Shwellness Center. I really enjoy adding this to my routine instead of just running all the time. The workouts make you use muscles that you haven't used in awhile (I am sore after them but a good sore).

I am now down to 277 pounds. I still have 27 pounds to hit my goal. With all the help and support from the gym I am sure I will hit this goal in no time!
