“I have been up and down the scale all of my life and after being diagnosed with diabetes I decided to get back on the wagon and be serious! I went to all the classes about the disease and also started walking my dog every day. Then I found the Community Strong partner, Curves, and have been going there 5 days a week for the past 7 years. I have lost 85 lbs and have kept it off so far. My diabetes is under control, no pills or insulin so far. Diet and exercise is keeping me alive!”

“Started in July of 2018 enjoying the wonderful options for hydro-spin classes offered at St Charles city parks. Totally got hooked and I’m continuing to do walking water fitness classes all summer long. My husband is playing sand volleyball and my daughter plays softball and soccer. Made changes in eating healthier and cooking better for my family. We are all staying active and continuing to live a healthier lifestyle.”

“Community Strong has encouraged and inspired me to drink more water as an intentional daily routine. I have already noticed changes in my energy level and how well I sleep at night.”
“I believe Community Strong can make an impact on our community health by sharing information/events and bringing awareness to living a healthier lifestyle even with our busy schedules. Its easy to feel we lack time and/or money to join a gym, so for me, simply adding a walk or bike ride as am optional way to work will ultimately make me healthier. I also believe Community Strong can bring more awareness to our residents, the value of travelling safely, and the healthy impact going places by foot or bicycle have on our well-being.”
“I just wanted to say that Day of Play was SO great!! There was so much to do and everything was so well organized. We brought 4 kids under 3 years old and they were so excited to play and do all the activities. Thanks so much for putting this together!
