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!

Get Healthy Now Wellness Center Member of the Month - July

Congratulations: Joel!


Congratulations to Joel Evans for being Get Healthy Now’s Member of the Month for July. This month’s theme is Recreation & Work Life Balance.  Keep reading to learn more about how Joel stays motivated to live a healthy lifestyle. 

Joel has worked at the University of Louisville for 19 years as a Program Analyst in the Math & Physics department. Joel’s hobbies are playing basketball, woodworking, reading, and walking. In the last 6 months, Joel has lost 20 pounds, and is focused on losing another 20 pounds by continuing to stay active through playing basketball, total body exercises, and Pilate’s class 2 days a week. During this time, Joel also improved his eating habits by cutting out fast food, eating 6-7 servings of fruit and vegetables each day, and not eating meat 3 days a week.

Joel continues to stay motivated by the helpful attitude of GHN staff and instructors who have created an environment that encourages him to focus on physical well-being and makes Joel look forward to Pilate’s class with Cherri every week.  At 60, Joel is more aware that he must maintain his healthy lifestyle in order to fully enjoy the latter portion of his life, “You have to put in the work if you want to keep things running” says Joel. 

The Wellness center has been an ideal for Joel to integrate a desire to improve overall fitness and health without sacrificing work productivity.  The ability to include scheduled exercise during the work week has helped balance the time pressure on life demands outside the workplace.  Increased fitness has led to additional energy and more productivity during the day and better use of time throughout the week.

What’s on Joel’s “Bucket List”? He wants to visit Alaska and Hawaii, and tour the British Isles and Europe someday!

Hip-hip-hooray to July’s Member of the Month, Joel Evans!
