Get Healthy Now Wellness Center Member of the Month - June
Raymond Chastain, Professor, Department of Physics and Astronomy
Meet Raymond Chastain, Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. In his first two years at UofL, he has already been named as a "Top Four" Faculty Favorite” for the 2013-2014 academic year and once you meet him, you’ll know exactly why the student rave about Ray.
As someone with an athletic spirit, it’s not a surprise that his favorite hobbies include playing soccer, tennis, and baseball with his four-year-old in their backyard. “Delaying the day when daddy ‘losing’ is no longer just for pretend” is what keeps him motivated to stay active.
Ray is always up for trying something new. Taking a cooking class in France is something that ranks high on his bucket list! He is also adventurous in his exercise choices – when asked what’s his favorite GHN offering, he replied: “I've enjoyed every class I've participated in, but my favorite thing about GHN has been trying classes that are very different from things I have done to work out in the past. I mean, who knew yoga was more than just stretching?”
Visiting the GHN Wellness Center has helped to keep Ray’s knees relatively pain-free through exercise and yoga practice three times a week—this consistency had been a key goal he kept in mind on his path to wellness. Keep stretching for your best self, Ray, you’ll always be a winner in our book!
