Get Healthy Now Wellness Center Member of the Month - August
Congratulations: Mark & Stephanie!
Meet Mark French and Stephanie Clemans, August’s Members of the Month! Mark has worked at UofL for 28 years as a professor in the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Stephanie nannies and is a sample preparer for DDWilliamson. Why two members of the month in August? The monthly theme is Healthy Relationships. Read on to see how Mark and Stephanie exemplify this!
This empowered couple motivate one another in reaching their fitness goals. Mark is building strength and endurance for the 14th annual Norwegian Foot March event in November. Stephanie is preparing for her second Rugged Red Trail Race in September. Both of these events are extremely challenging, but their frequent visits and dedication to their wellbeing is preparing them well.
This couple loves adventure: Mark recently completed the Triple Crown 10-Miler run in 80 minutes, and both hiked the NYC Marathon route over the course of two days and then hiked from the top to bottom of Manhattan the next day! On their bucket list? Hadrian’s Wall Path and Camino de Santiago. They favorite hobbies are outdoor activities, home improvement projects, and reading.
Getting to fulfill their sense of adventure and achieve their fitness goals, they train together in the welcoming atmosphere of the GHN Wellness Center. They both agree that the “nice and knowledgeable staff” at the GHN Wellness Center keep them coming back, as well as the wide variety of offerings and activities, such as Nia. What motivates this dynamic duo? Mark wants to stay healthy for daily life and prevent illness through fitness. He describes coming to the gym as his “prescription medicine alternative” (and we couldn’t agree more!). Stephanie keeps coming back because of one important thing…her sweetheart, Mark! “It’s true. I just like lifting. I come to spend time with my sweetheart.” What a true example of a healthy relationship!
The unwavering dedication they have for each other can be seen each time they are at the gym, as well as the dedication they have for a healthy and active life spent thriving and adventuring…together! Join GHN in congratulating, Mark and Stephanie!
