Chris Bunch has a goal of becoming a centurion. Personal Trainer, Jalene Tuley is helping Chris ahieve that goal with personal training at the Kroc. Born with a hip defect in 1957, Chris underwent numerous surgeries throughout his lifetime in an attempt to repair the damage that left him unable to enjoy a number of physical activities throughout the years. His greatest success? “I’ve never been able to sit cross-legged on the ground until now.” It’s a mere reminder that nothing should be taken for granted.
In December of 2014, Tina Lowe joined the Kroc Center, motivated to completely overhaul her lifestyle. Since then, she has involved herself in a number of classes offered, including her favorites, BODYFLOW and BODYPUMP. She can often be seen “opening the Kroc,” as one of the first members here every morning. Her dedication has earned her a total weight loss of over 160 pounds and counting. “This is a lifestyle for me now. No quitting here!” she proudly offers.
When Joi Austin was in the process of moving from Chicago to Quincy, she was slightly disappointed that she would be leaving her favorite fitness class, POUND, in the city she once called home. But when her husband Bret notified her that the Kroc Center was to begin carrying the class, it made the transition that much easier for the new Quincy resident. “My favorite part of POUND [is that it’s like] playing a drum kit during the routines.” No matter where you’re from, or what it is you look for in a fitness class, the Kroc Center truly has something to offer everyone.
