Member Spotlight: Maggie Boyd

Posted Oct 29, 2021

Ms. Boyd, 94, has been a proud member of WK South Wellness Center for seven years. Her fitness journey began while living in France, where she joined an aerobics class at the Air Force base gym. Once she moved to California, she continued her health journey, exercising to videos of fitness guru Jack LaLanne in the comfort of her home. Upon her move to Shreveport, Ms. Boyd became a certified aerobics instructor for “Silver Sneakers.” The nonagenarian has enjoyed her time at WK South Wellness Center, she says, because the facility is clean, has a great staff, and offers aerobic classes. About three years ago, Ms. Boyd broke her femur. After she completed her physical therapy, the wellness center staff guided her with a daily plan to help her maintain as much independence as possible and feel good. “My bones feel it if I even miss one day,” she says. Besides exercising at the wellness center, Mrs. Boyd enjoys reading - especially her Bible – traveling, watching football, soccer, and baseball, and any time spent with her three children, four grandchildren, and 13 great grandchildren.
