A Father-Daughter Fitness Journey

Sometimes the best incentive to get fit comes from your own family. When Maggie Newlin was looking for something positive and energizing to do outside of her work, she found inspiration from her father, Greg, who has been working out daily for 15 years.

“Dad convinced me to get up early, that working out is a good way to start the day,” said Maggie. She has been exercising consistently with her dad for two years. They meet at Fort Hill Activity Center early in the morning before going off to work.

“Our primary focus is weightlifting,” explained Greg. “I introduced my daughter to several routines that she has embraced. We also try to attend a spin class together once a week and walk or run on the indoor track as well.”

The results

This father-daughter team’s early morning routine continues to reap benefits for both of them. 

Maggie found that in addition to building physical strength and self-confidence, exercise improves her mood and helps her sleep better. 

Greg experiences better health, more energy and continuing physical fitness. “I’m a recovered smoker and couch potato,” said Greg. “You can’t stop aging but you can fight it! Working out is the closest you’ll ever get to a time machine. By exercising, you don’t just add years to your life, you improve the quality of your life.” 

They both had praise for the Fitness Center at Fort Hill Activity Center and for the friendly staff. 

 “We love the customer service staff at the front desk, and the trainers are friendly and helpful,” said Greg. “There’s plenty of room for us in the fitness center when we work out, the membership fee is less expensive than other gyms, and there’s more equipment.”
