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: Paula!

 

Paula Radmacher, Retired, Division of Neonatal Medicine (Department of Pediatrics)

Meet Paula Radmacher, a UofL retiree who worked at the University for 40 years! Paula’s favorite hobbies and activities include bicycling, gardening, genealogy, photography, ballroom dancing, traveling, and grand-mothering.

In the last six months, Paula has lost 15 pounds and improved her overall fitness. “I have used Weight Watchers as a guide to drop weight consistently,” she said. Additionally, she has been eating less meat and making sure to choose healthy snack options. Moving forward into a New Year, Paula has goals she will continue to pursue. “I want to improve my upper body strength and posture, while continuing to maintain fitness and weight loss,” she explained.

Paula enjoys several GHN offerings that have assisted her on her health journey. “LaBlast (class) is great fun because of the dance-step basis of the class,” she said. She also consistently works with a Personal Trainer (Lu). “I have a toddler grandson who loves to be picked up and I need to maintain strength as he gets bigger and heavier!” Paula and her husband enjoy practicing ballroom dancing in Studio B; where they are able to apply and reinforce lessons they learn in an accommodating space. “Overall, I love the atmosphere and the equipment options at GHN,” she stated.

Paula’s “Bucket List” includes biking in all 50 states with her husband. “We ride a recumbent tandem named Daffy, as she is daffodil yellow,” she said, “So far, we have made it to 23 states. If we can reach two more states a year, we will be done when we are 82!”
