A Healthier, Fuller Life at the Y

Posted on: March 1, 2018

After suffering a stroke, Richard joined the Y in 2012 when he completed his rehabilitation sessions. When Richard joined, he started working with one of our wellness instructors, Joanie. He nicknamed her the Drill Sargent and attributes much of his success to how she has pushed him and was there for him. Richard says, “Since joining the Y I am in better physical shape than I have ever been, it has helped to improve my equilibrium immensely, and I have lost about 30lbs.”

Richard feels that if it had not been for the Y, he would be in terrible shape and would have never recovered from his stroke. In November 2015, he had another clot, this time in his heart. He had a surgery called the Five Box Maze to remove the clot. Through all of this, Richard has continued to use the Y and is faithful in his workouts. He says, “It’s the best choice I ever made.”
