Get Healthy Now Wellness Center Member of the Month - October
Congratulations to Amy Fordham for being Get Healthy Now’s Member of the Month for October. This month’s theme is Mental Health and Sustainability: keep reading to learn more about how Amy de-stresses and implements planet-friendly practices into her inspiring lifestyle!
Amy will be celebrating her 10-year anniversary with UofL in November! She serves as Curator of Visual Resources, Visual Resources Center, Fine Arts Department/Hite Art Institute. Her favorite hobbies consist of Nia, biking, boxing, anything dance-oriented, and her new endeavor of scuba-diving – which will allow her to check cage diving with sharks off of her “Bucket List!”
Amy’s main wellness goal is be consistent with keeping active and eating as well as possible so she can “feel good physically, mentally, and emotionally.” She has been steadily meeting this goal for the past 6 months! “The staff and offerings are awesome! I feel at home there, always feel welcome, and have fun in any of the classes that I participate in.”
Amy manages life’s stressors through her favorite GHN offering: Nia. “I love any form of dance in general, and I was introduced to Nia several years ago. Given that it’s a mix of the dance arts, healing arts, and martial arts, it is a fantastic, fun, free-spirited, cardio workout in addition to being relaxing for mental health.” As for sustainability, Amy loves to ride her bike as opposed to driving when she can, and she signed up for the National Bike Challenge on Team UofL for the excitement and fun of it! She is routinely one of the top riders on the University’s team. Join us in congratulating this adventurous and earth-friendly member of the Cardinal family!
