hear from A few Participants:
Name: Pamela Moyer
Pamela joined the Wildcat family in the summer of 2011, and goes to every Monday/Wednesday/Friday morning class. She says, "Since participating in the Wildcat Workout Project, I have experienced great improvements in my strength, balance, and flexibility. I can perform my daily activities longer and with less difficulty, recover more quickly after any physical activity, and am more relaxed and focused after each workout. Every class is varied enough to be interesting and fun, and I look forward to each one I can attend!"
Name: Michael Goldberg
Michael joined the Wildcat family in 1991, and has been attending the Monday/Wednesday/Friday morning class since April of 2015. He says, "The class has transformed my life. I had wanted to exercise regularly for years, but couldn’t find any strategy that I could stick with. I was also diagnosed with prediabetes and a fatty liver. The medications the doctor prescribed had serious side effects so I tried exerciseinstead. After 4 months, I was no longer prediabetic and my liver was normal. The beautiful thing about WWP is that I do not have to think about a thing. Adam and Reid are great. All you have to do is show up. And it is free! There is no excuse not to go."
Name: Lucie Lepine
Lucie joined the Wildcat family in 1994, and participates in the Monday/Wednesday/Friday morning classes. She says, "I heard about it 5 or so years ago from colleagues on campus, and it truly has changed my life! The camaraderie, support, and sense of community shared by the instructors and participants is addictive. Adam and Reid are professional, respectful, and knowledgeable. They are always available for questions, not only on exercising, but also for general healthy lifestyle choices. They make the class so fun! The strength I’ve gained from the class has translated to nearly every part of my life and has given me confidence to better meet and accept challenges in life."
Name: Joanne Maldari
Joanne joined the Wildcat family as part of the athletics department, and has been participating in the WWP since the program began. She says, "To me, health means feeling strong, energetic, and having a positive attitude. With the WWP, you get top weight training and conditioning from experts - for free! I have 2 boys, so I like to stay healthy and active so that I can keep up with them. I also like to serve as a role model for being active your whole life. Since I've been working out, I handle stress better, get sick less often, and sleep better."
