CLIENT HIGHLIGHT(S)

Meet Peg Donnelly and Lynda Witcoski (pictured above) . . . Two amazing clients we also consider our friends.  They have been training with us since we opened almost 8 years ago, setting such a good example for their families on the importance of health, fitness and self-care.  Peg is married with 3 children (Kate – age 20, Amanda – age 18, and Nicholas – age 14).  She also works full-time as an Education Consultant for Allstate Insurance.  Lynda is also married and has 2 children (Alyssa – age 17 and Joey – age 14).  Lynda also works full-time as a Nurse Practitioner for Summit Medical Group in Warren.  BOTH of these ladies show up just about EVERY morning for 5:45 a.m. Bootcamp.  They feel that if they didn’t squeeze in their workouts in the early morning hours, they might not happen due to their busy careers and family lives.  We couldn’t be happier to have these two beautiful gals training with us, and we love that they make their health and fitness a priority.  Thank you, Peg and Lynda for entrusting us with your training!

PAY-IT-FORWARD: OPERATION !MPACT

During the month of October, we collected items for Rob Movshin and his Army unit who is serving overseas.  We called this OPERATION !MPACT.  Rob is a friend and a member of our Hillsborough community – and he and his wife, Diane, are raising 3 wonderful boys. When we spoke to Diane, she mentioned that in addition to us sending healthy supplements like protein drinks and hydration drinks, the unit could also use cough drops, throat lozenges and lip balm since there seems to be high levels of fumes where they are stationed, and it is irritating their mouths and throats.  We are very excited to send these much-needed items to them, and to top it off we received some wonderful letters to include in this care package.  Our friend, Jen Hopson, is a 3rd grade teacher at Hills borough Elementary School.  They recently had a “Week of Respect” so they all wrote letters to Rob and his unit thanking them for their service. Thank you so much, Jen, for your contribution from your class. We will be sending this care package out this week, and hope it brightens their day when they receive it.

DRX DUCT CLEANING:  Call George:  (908) 755-2950 . . . THANK YOU to George Ghanime, owner of DRX Duct Cleaning, who learned that the Koll family was in need of having their air-ducts and AC/heating vents cleaned so they could bring their son, Chris Koll home from the hospital.  Since Chris wass undergoing chemotherapy, it is essential they do all they can to help his compromised immune system, so cleaning out all the duct work was first on the list to reduce the chances of mold, etc.  I told George about the Koll family, and he immediately reached out to them to provide them with service, and he picked up the tab.  George knew that Chris is one of the Steps Together beneficiaries, and he wanted to give back.  Thank you so much, George!  Visit their website: www.NJAirDuct.com
