What Is Your Profession?
Retired from Kodak after 36 years. Then I had the privilege of managing the front end and waitressing at my sister’s restaurant, the Apple Tree Inn. Loved being with her everyday for 9 years. Loved it there and met some life-long friends.
What made you choose Studio 22 Fitness?
Right around the corner from where I live and it’s awesome!
What is your favorite thing(s) about working out at Studio 22?
I love the size of Studio 22. I’ve never had to wait for a machine.
Has your experience been different in any way than experiences you've had at prior facilities?
The YMCA was always busy, especially in the mornings with the Silver Sneakers clientele. I also love the locale in the Village and I have many friends here and have met some new ones too!
What is your favorite exercise or thing to do at the gym?
I love starting on the treadmill with a 5 incline and walk 2-3 miles. Then I love the stationery upper and lower Matrix machines which I alternate, lower body one day, upper the next.
What’s in your headphones while you’re working out?
I’m a 70’s girl so I enjoy disco and R&B that helps pace my walking
Has Covid-19 changed your normal workout routine? How?
I don’t think it has, other than giving me more time to work out
What is one exercise you hate doing but still do it anyway?
By far it’s the abdominal machine! But I do 50 crunches 4 times and am always thrilled when I’m done with the 200th!
What is your dream place to visit?
We’re a Disney family, but I love warm weather trips that include great golf, beaches, and wonderful seafood spots
If you could only eat one thing every day for the rest of your life what would it be? Probably pizza!
What do you do in your spare time?
If I could golf every day, I would! My husband and I also formed a musical duet called Two For The Road. We Played all over the Rochester area at some wonderful clubs and restaurants like Pane Vino, Pomodoro, Ridgemont, but our favorite gig was playing at Red Fedele’s Brook House every Friday night where we enjoyed an 8-year run! I have 6 granddaughters that I adore and they certainly keep me young and entertained!
