Member Spotlight: Dana Craft

The spoken words “you have breast cancer” were spoken to me January 2011. I was diagnosed at stage 2 and had so many decisions to make regarding surgery, treatment etc. I had a double mastectomy February 2011, went through chemotherapy, and several reconstructive surgeries thereafter.  Toward the end of my last chemo treatment, my family and I took a tour of Prairie Life Fitness.  I needed a place where my bald head didn’t matter but where my goals to regaining my strength back did. Prairie Life Fitness gave me the options I needed. I started walking the track and then utilizing weights to help regain back my bone density that chemo took from me. Prairie Life Fitness offered many options that I took advantage of from group fitness classes, spin, working with a personal trainer, and the many other options in the gym where I could create my own workouts.

I have been doing the X-Factor Class for a year now and have accomplished many PR’s and strengths that I never thought would be possible. The undivided attention that the personal trainers have given me has been phenomenal. I do not regret making the choice to join Prairie Life Fitness in 2011. Prairie Life Fitness has been supportive in my breast cancer awareness and fund raising for the last couple years. I am thankful I found a place that has been my refuge for the last 4 years!

The Smart Way to Kick Off the Season

Did someone say back-to-school? Football? Cooler temperatures? Difficult to believe that summer vacation is over again. But, we’ve made it through another summer of fun and it is time to get back into our normal, busy routines again.

Routines… Even the word screams, “boring!” But, it doesn’t need to be. We are creatures of habit and need our routines. Workout routines help us achieve the next goal of fitness levels but it can be easy to get stuck in a rut. Doing the same thing day after day and expecting to achieve different results may not be insane but is can be extremely frustrating for the fit-minded. In the clubs, we offer many ways to mix it up and keep members from hitting plateaus, personal trainers, classes and special activities around the club. However, many of you just want to come and do our own thing and we understand that. For you, we’ve developed the PerFit personal training app. You can read about it in this month’s newsletter. Think about it as one more way to put that data plan to work for you!
