Pam Schaefer joined WK Bossier Wellness Center in February of this year. Schaefer started her fitness journey on a visit to her family. At her son’s church, a woman who was a current member of the fitness and wellness center approached and asked Schaefer to join her. When Schaefer visited, she was not sure how to use the equipment. WK fitness specialists Jay Williams and Alexis Young guided Schaefer on how to use the equipment and provided words of encouragement.
Member challenges hosted by our fitness and wellness centers provide a unique opportunity for members to display their fitness skills. Schaefer completed the Rockport Fitness Walking Test composed of a one-mile walk to estimate her maximal volume of oxygen uptake (VO2 max). After that Schaefer participated in the May-rathon Challenge where she completed 26.2 miles of exercise during the month of May. When she is not completing fitness challenges in the gym, Schaefer loves reading, visiting with friends and going on walks.
