"I liked the CHIP program because it wasn't just a book and information, but it showed and got us involved with meals, field trips and Foster Rec access."
"The Nutrition Talks presentation on Inflammation In The Body was interesting and informative. A lot of information was covered in a short time, so I was thankful for the printout for review. Thank you!"
"I just wanted to let you know that Ageless Grace has helped me tremendously. I had a knee replacement in December and when I was able to return to the class I could barely do some of the exercises. Now I am able to do a lot of the leg exercises and it has helped me so much. I love the class and several other associates have said the same thing. My muscles and joints have improved also. Vicki does a great job and we all love the class. My balance has improved and my flexibility has improved also. I can’t say enough good things about this class."
"I wanted to thank you for hosting of the Ageless Grace class. For the record, I’ve had issues with first one shoulder and then the other since I was in my 20s. Carefully, as we did the various exercises, I began to “push” my left shoulder rotation somewhat—both backward and forward. I now have the same range of motion in both shoulders—and it doesn’t hurt. Again, thanks for Ageless Grace. I probably wouldn’t have tried to do anything with the shoulder if the opportunity had not been provided to do so."
"Taking Tai Chi classes has improved my balance, stability, cardiovascular health, flexibility, and is a great stress reliever."
"I've seen improvements in balance, coordination, stress reduction, and increased self esteem since participating in Tai Chi classes."
"Since attending yoga classes, I've experienced fewer back and neck strains, reduced stressed, increased flexibility, and get the chance to network with other MSU staff from different departments."
"My mental health is improved by taking time out of the busy work week and getting to focus on my physical and mental health at yoga by breathing, re-focusing, and also getting in a workout. I have an infant at home so working out at home or at a gym is nearly impossible."
"I can feel a significant difference in my neck and back on weeks when I attend vs. miss yoga class. I know it contributes to my full body wellness and it's truly appreciated."
"The Maroon Moves Walking Challenge was an experience that motivated me and nurtured community in our department as we teased and encouraged each other in our step goals!"
"Prior to Maroon Moves I struggled to get 7,500 steps per day and I thought 10,000 was nearly impossible. Now I know I can hit 10,000 steps daily, it just takes a lot of work. But it is encouraging to know I can do it if I just put forth the intentional effort! Thanks for the challenge!"
