By Member of the Month
We are so excited to introduce you to Alev, our April Member of the Month! She has been a member at LIVE WELL North Vancouver for the past 2 years and she now has so much more energy to keep up with her 2 year old grand daughter! We applaud how she’s placed her health as a priority and how she continues to stay active despite these challenging times!
Why did you decide to join LIVE WELL?
I joined LIVE WELL in hopes to make changes to my life and health. My husband and I are both members and have been for almost 2 years. In the past we had joined other gyms but found that we were just not committed and inevitably stopped going. We joined LIVE WELL because mainly Kent is a friend and he was so passionate about this new venture of his that we were totally drawn in. Our initial thought was to join for a month and see how things go and probably not continue. In the past 2 years I can honestly say that we have not missed a day, We love to go and feel very welcome but never judged, we all work at our own pace and our own programs which is unique to each person. The programs changes about once a month which keeps your exercises always interesting and challenges you a little bit more.
What are the biggest changes you’ve experienced since joining?
I have much more energy, my cholesterol is down, I eat healthier and push myself a little bit more. I have a 2 year old grand daughter that I need to be able to keep up with. I feel more knowledgeable with all the info given to us during our sessions and am able to make better lifestyle choices in nutrition and wellness.
Without LIVE WELL, where would your health be at?
That’s hard to say because who know what would happen down the road. I do think that I would probably not be as active as I am now. There are mornings that I would rather stay in bed but we get up to go to the gym. When we had joined the recreation centre there was no accountability so if I did not want to go I stayed in bed. With LIVE WELL I feel this is not an option I feel there is accountability, If I don’t get my butt out of bed my phone might ring, because they care for each client.
