Anschutz Health and Wellness Center in Action
Date:7/29/2013

ght people feel shame,” she said. “[At the Center,] they understand that a negative approach is not the way to do it, and they’re always positive.”

Halfway through the course, Fox’s blood sugar tested as normal—and she was down a few dress sizes.

“I didn’t do it for vanity, but it’s a nice side effect,” Fox said. “I’m not an exercise freak, but I want to live to be a very old woman.”

Judy Primeaux’s problem was stress. Stress from her job as a director at the CU School of Medicine’s Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center. Stress from caring for her aging mother living far away in Louisiana. Stress from the myriad volunteer activities she’d committed herself to at her church and elsewhere.

Other gyms and fitness centers only created more stress in her life, but the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center finally helped relieve her stress.

“I’d become so debilitated in my cardiovascular health that I could hardly walk from the parking lot to the office without stopping to rest,” said Primeaux, 63. “I went to the Center, and I just said ‘Help,’ and they put this team together for me.”

When she had back muscle spasms, her team helped her get therapeutic massage. When she experienced joint pain, her team helped her move her workout to the pool. When she achieved one goal, her team helped her set a new goal.

Primeaux’s ultimate goal is to lose 100 pounds. She’s not there yet, but in only a year—with ongoing support from one of the Center’s registered dietitian, Kim Gorman—she has seen her cholesterol drop and has been able to go off her blood pressure medication.

“What differentiates the Center is that they’re not just trying to make the beautiful people more beautiful,” she said. “No matter where you are, they’re there to help you move to the next step, and they hang in there with you.”
