Welcyon - From a Nurse Perspective



From a Nurse Perspective "As a nurse, I realized Welcyon's weight machines covered all muscle groups, and lifting weights is crucial for bone health. I appreciate that there are coaches, so that the machines are used properly and safely, and you can establish realistic and achievable goals." Sue Sheridan.



When I retired, 5 years ago, I knew I would need to do something to maintain strength and endurance. I used to walk a lot and to bike in the summer, but more was necessary. Then, I found Welcyon.


I like Welcyon because it is so comprehensive. I was especially drawn to the weight machines. As a nurse, I realized they covered all muscle groups, and lifting weights is crucial for bone health. I appreciate that there are coaches, so that the machines are used properly and safely, and you can establish realistic and achievable goals.



Over the past 5 yeas, my upper body strength has improved. I can really notice this while shoveling snow.


A HIIT class (High-Intensity Interval Training) gave me a sense of purpose in using the cardio equipment. I established a challenging and doable routine on the elliptical. My resting pulse, which was on the high side of normal, has dropped 16 beats/min.


And who would guess, I would be taking Zumba and Latin Dance classes!!! Great fun and exercise, 500 calories per hour. :)


My biggest surprise are the friends I have made. I look forward to seeing the mid morning crew. Its gets me up and going each day.
