Member Spotlight: Rhonda Robertson

Posted May 25, 2023

Rhonda Robertson has been a regular fitness center member at WK South Wellness Center since 2020. She began a regular exercise routine after 36 years of teaching kindergarten. Retirement gives her time to focus on her health.   

It all began one summer when Robertson joined friends to exercise in one of their pools. Her friend Eugenie, now a water aerobics instructor at WK Fitness & Wellness Centers, led the pool exercises. Robertson and her friends enjoyed it so much, they became members of the wellness centers so they could exercise in the pool year-round. Robertson said joining WK Fitness & Wellness Centers is one of the best decisions she's ever made. Pool exercise is now a big part of her life. She schedules other appointments and activities around water aerobics classes she wants to attend and hates it when she must miss. She especially likes that water aerobics is easy on the joints and improves one’s mood. 

Moreover, Robertson loves the staff at WK South Wellness Center. Everyone is friendly and helpful, she says. Instructors Angela and Shanda are quick to answer any question and modify exercises as needed. Personal trainers Wendy, Marlon and Adelyn assist in other ways. 

When she isn’t exercising, Robertson, grandmother to her first grandchild born in November, enjoys photography and being around children. For more than 40 years, she has volunteered in the nursery at her church.
