Amy Fordham’s Success Story

Thanks to my involvement in the wellness coaching program offered by Get Healthy Now and participation in aerobics classes offered on campus, I am extremely happy to say that I am healthier, have more energy, and have a much better quality of life. A year ago, I wasn’t exercising on a regular basis, nor did I have good eating habits. Over the past 8 years, I’d put on 40 pounds and didn’t have the knowledge or willingness to do anything about it until last January. That’s when I started taking aerobics classes 3-4 times a week and working with Brooke Banet, Wellness Coach Coordinator for Get Healthy Now.

The wellness coaching program was exactly the support that I needed.  It has given me the opportunity to follow a program that focuses on my specific goals and needs.  I now have the knowledge and tools to eat balanced meals throughout the day so that I get the proper nutrients that my body needs. Plus, I’m exercising on a regular basis, and the trick for me was to find things I enjoy doing.

Over the past year, I’ve lost 20 pounds, and even better, I’m still continuing along the healthy eating and exercise path and look forward to losing another 20+ pounds this year.

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!

Overall, I am extremely grateful to work at the University and truly value the free access to  a wellness coaching program and affordable aerobics classes. I truly don’t know what I would have done this past year without them.


Amy, Thank you for sharing your success!
