April Member of the Month
Meet our member, Felicia Zimmerman. She says, "For the past 40 years, exercise has been a constant in my life. In the 1970s, I ran. In the 80s, I did aerobics. In the 90s and subsequently, I’ve walked quickly and done yoga. Along the way, I’ve taken a practical approach to my diet, usually eating chicken and fish and consuming vegetables and fruits daily. But I don’t feel guilty about the occasional dessert.
In late 2016, my doctor expressed concern about my bone density. In turn, I found a trainer who I hoped would help me strengthen my core. Unfortunately, after a few months, I could see that my trainer was ill-equipped to advise a woman who knew what she wanted and needed.
After some research, I found Core Club. For the past five months, I have had twice-weekly sessions with Dave, whom I call my core surgeon. He ensures that our sessions achieve my objectives. Unlike my first trainer’s approach, Dave’s sessions are never boring and always challenge me to raise the bar on my own performance.
Bottom line, if you know what you want to accomplish and stay with it, you can have the body you want—even at 67!

NEW YEAR, BETTER YOU!
Meet Jon Gajewski, a military veteran who has been working for ADT. In the time between leaving the military and his arrival at Core Club his weight and energy levels fluctuated. We noticed Jon's hardwork and dedication and wanted to make sure it did not go unnoticed!
Let's see what Jon has to say:
"His start up at Core Club gave him the motivation and drive to reach his goals and keep moving forward. In 2017 he successfully ran 2 obstacle races. His latest accomplishment was to run 100 miles in November. In December he set another goal to become a personal trainer to help inspire and motivate others to achieve their goals."
