Suzy's Corner: Just What the Doctor Ordered

July 2013

Nobody likes going to the doctor, but it's a lot better leaving with high praise and kudos than bad news and a list of what you're doing wrong. I'm happy to report that a lot of Welcyon members are both surprising and impressing their doctors with their amazing results.

Take Lynn Thoresen. The longtime Edina member was experiencing shooting pain in her leg. Her orthopedic surgeon suggested therapy, but Lynn first wanted to try adjusting her weights at Welcyon and working with our fitness coaches. After six weeks, the pain was gone and she was making strength gains too. lynn went back to her doctor armed with her comparison graph and a personalized Welcyon report that outlined the modified program. Not only was her surgeon impressed by the numbers, but the doctor appreciated Welcyon's supervision and customized workout.

Clarice Vennix is another one. The Bloomington member has lost 25 pounds, significantly reduced her triglycerides and she's no longer considered pre-diabetic.

The Welcyon team wants to help you monitor your progress and plans on rolling out a systematic method to “check in" with you regularly. After 30 days, Welcyon will print your comparison graph and offer an appointment to review it, reevaluate your weight loads and make suggestions to enhance your program. We will then follow-up with you every quarter. Of course, we're happy to print out your graph at any time.

There are a lot of you out there who are getting stronger and making dramatic changes. You've put in the work - so now's the time to take credit.
