Get Healthy Now Wellness Center Member of the Month - May
Congratulations to Lisa Burnett for being Get Healthy Now’s Member of the Month for May. This month’s theme is Women’s Health: keep reading to learn more about how Lisa uses good nutrition and consistent exercise to stay healthy!
Lisa has worked at UofL for 3 years. She is the Unit Business Manager at the School of Dentistry. Her favorite hobbies include: Running, dancing, and crocheting. Running a 5K was on Lisa’s bucket list, but she decided to go for the bigger goal with the KY Derby mini-marathon!
Since training to run the KY Derby mini-marathon, Get Healthy Now has provided support in many forms to reach this goal. Lisa loves being able to use the facilities and equipment at her convenience – either during her lunch break or after work – to supplement with her training schedule. She enjoys the varied strength training equipment and likes the indoor track and treadmill for those rainy days! Her favorite GHN wellness offering is the weekly Walk & Run Club. “[It] has been a big help to me and keeps me motivated and coming back!”
Along with regular exercise, Lisa has changed her nutrition habits to help her on her journey of wellness. “I have cut WAY back on sugar, sodas, and junky snack foods, opting for more filling, satisfying, and healthier options.” She has lost over 30 pounds and is almost to her “goal weight.” Her new goals are to continue toning up and maintain her weight loss.
Hip-hip-hooray to May’s Member of the Month, Lisa Burnett!
