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!

Adrienne LindsayResearch Integrity Program, Office of Executive Vice President for Research and Innovation (EVPRI)

 Meet Adrienne Lindsay, a six-year employee at UofL!  She enjoys running, yoga, and exploring local festivals outside of work. 

One of Adrienne’s yearly fitness goal’s is to run at least one half-marathon (13.1 miles).  “Earlier this year, I hit a personal best in the half-marathon.  I hadn’t hit this (time) since 2014 and it felt like a real achievement!” she said.

Moving forward, Adrienne has goals and healthy habits that she will continue to work towards.  “Each year I try to find one way to move towards healthier eating habits,” she explained, “and this year I have focused on eliminating sneaky products that are especially unhealthy, such as canola oil, vegetable oil, and high fructose corn syrup.  Food companies sneak these products into salad dressings, ketchup, mayonnaise, pickles, and other unsuspecting foods.  It’s frustrating, but important to read food labels.” Adrienne has also been making a transition to heart-rate based runs during her longer weekend runs. “In the summer heat, it means a lot of walk/run intervals, but it keeps it interesting,” she stated.

Adrienne’s “Bucket List” includes the possibility of running a full marathon (26.2 miles). “I have been toying with the idea of running a marathon.  It goes a bit against my functional fitness philosophy, but I think torturing myself for this one time will be okay,” she said.  Utilizing the GHN Wellness Center has helped keep Adrienne motivated and accountable to her goals and her fitness philosophy. “I love the morning classes.  I like having my workout done so there are no excuses as my day progresses.” She continued, “My philosophy is for the long haul.  Functional movement is important as you age, and I keep that in mind as I chose my movement options.  This is typically why I choose yoga but include healthy doses of cardio.”
