Success Stories

Just a note to tell you about the latest benefit I have experienced by participating in the Wellness Program:
Over a week ago, our office held our annual retreat at Zions Park in Southern Utah. An optional activity was the hike/climb up to Angels Landing for the 11 of us staff members. I was one of only four people who felt "fit" enough to make the climb. It was a strenuous hike for a total of 41/2 hours up and back but I also found it exhilarating and so worthwhile the effort! The only side effect was some mild soreness in my arms  the next day when I came to work on a Friday from pulling myself up on those chains on the trail to the top of Angels Landing the day before. I know that my Wellness workouts for the previous 10 weeks prepared me well enough to have the stamina for a successful experience. Yea Wellness!
Thanks.
