Testimonial: Jim and Karen Meet Their Fitness Goals With the Help of Wellness Center Staff

As a retired GE employee and retired teacher, we would like you to be aware of our pleasure being able to meet fitness goals with the help of Kristen Bertke, our Personal Wellness Adviser and Gary Wells our Personal Trainer at the GE Fitness Center. When we attended the GE Wellness Center open house, we learned from the staff about the possibility of the program that paired us with Kristen and Gary.

Initially we met with Kristen to evaluate our present fitness, to set goals for realistic weight management and to help with accountability as we worked toward our goals. As we met with her regularly, we found that we needed to focus on our fitness training at the GE Fitness Center.

Although we had been members off and on at the Fitness Center, we never approached any of the trainers for help with the Nautilus Machines or goals to improve our strength and fitness. Upon finding that we could work with a trainer for 12 weeks without charge, we met with Gary. Like Kristen, Gary evaluated our present strength and endurance levels and then proceeded to introduce us to the equipment available and exercise routines that would help us attain an even higher level of fitness and strength. We met with Gary for 12 meetings that included regular evaluations of our progress toward our goals. We found that Gary was very encouraging, supportive and able to readjust exercises that would meet our ability and strength.

We believe that it was through this teaming process that we have continued on our path to improved strength and health. It was through that Open House that we discovered two very important partners in our lives, Gary and Kristen. We are thankful for their encouragement and expertise, as well as GE for offering a forward thinking program to improve the health and welfare of present and retired employees as well as their spouses. We look forward to continued success with the help of these valued professionals and both the Wellness and Fitness Center.
