Anschutz Health and Wellness Center in Action

’s there to get healthy.”

After an 80-hour work week, it’s hard to find the time—not to mention the energy—to get in a good workout. The Anschutz Health and Wellness Center helped Frank DeGruy, MD, professor in the CU School of Medicine, find the time—and now he feels like he has more energy than ever.

“There are several fitness centers near my home, but I like the way this one is staffed,” he said. “The staff are highly competent and knowledgeable, and they offer a lot of instruction, support, reinforcement and encouragement.”

For years, DeGruy, struggled with chronic back pain. Three to four times a year, he would injure his back while downhill skiing or by doing something as simple as lifting a suitcase. Since he started working with Nick Edwards, a personal trainer at the Center, he has been working out more aggressively than ever before and has sustained zero injuries.

And his success story at the Center has extended to his Department of Family Medicine where he gives colleagues his blessing to take time out of the work day to go to the Center to work out together.

“There is a well-established body of literature around the notion that physical activity and physical health make people more productive at work,” he said. “I believe if we can promote, as a work priority, physically healthy people, we’ll actually get more done and be better at what we do.”

Joy Fox lost 70 pounds in one year, and she’s keeping the weight off. A weight management class at the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center made it possible for the 58-year-old.

Every Tuesday for 20 weeks she showed up at the Center at 5:30 p.m., along with about 10 other women, and spent an hour learning how to use meal replacement products to shed weight. Then, she worked with two of the Center’s registered dietitians, Kristen Bing and Elizabeth Kealey, to learn how to maintain her weight, eating proper portions of nutritious foods.
