Get Healthy Now

I can honestly say that my success is primarily thanks to the support of Get Healthy Now, and especially the wellness coaching program. It has given me the mental support and encouragement I’ve needed, which has boosted my confidence throughout this past year tremendously!

Congratulations: Sarah!

 

Sarah Frankel, Open Access & Repository Coordinator (University Libraries)

Meet Sarah Frankel, a 13 year employee at UofL! She enjoys going to the gym, drinking coffee, and watching Netflix!

In the last six months, Sarah has been able to increase her strength numbers on the squat, deadlift, and bench press. Inversely, “I have lost 10 pounds (of bodyweight),” she added. Her improved eating habits has been a critical component to her health journey. “I have been tracking my macronutrients (carbs, fats, protein) and do my best to keep things balanced to make sure I am supporting my fitness goals,” she said. Practicing moderation and using good judgement are important to her eating, as well. Moving forward, her goals include “bench pressing over 100 pounds and performing pull-ups unassisted.”

Exercising at the GHN Wellness Center is a huge part of Sarah’s daily routine. “Working out makes me feel really good and sets the tone for the rest of the day,” she said. “I actually belong to multiple gyms, but GHN has the best hours and free parking doesn’t hurt either!” Additionally, she enjoys taking the Take 20 to Relax sessions.

Sarah’s “Bucket List” includes “trying CrossFit and seeing the pyramids in Egypt.” Sarah’s biggest tip for staying healthy is taking care of yourself, first and foremost. “I used to think I didn’t have time to go the gym,” she added, “but you have to create a time that works for you.” “I prioritized work and family responsibilities over my own well-being and I suffered greatly for it. I am a better wife, mother, daughter, friend, and co-worker now that I prioritize my own physical and mental health!” she said.
