Victor H., a CIP Berkshire student, continues to be a stand out regarding his commitment to his Wellness program. Victor is always prepared and on time for his sessions having arrived early and taking the initiative to write in his journal before class even begins.
He is eager to workout, always highly motivated, cooperative and participates fully. Victor is also enjoying taking his turn at leading the warm up routine, by getting in front of the group and deciding on a movement he has learned or created.
He is a great motivator while leading the group and his face lights up with self satisfaction that everyone is following along with him. Victor has also become aware that he is able to regulate his moods through exercise which is helping him immensely.
Victor has been attending Weight Watchers and has lost 14 lbs. by keeping track of his points on his own. Through his workouts in CIP’s Wellness program he has reduced his waist size by 4 inches. Victor is a wonderful example of taking advantage of all that is being offered to him in Wellness and on his own.
His is practicing good eating habits, monitoring his portions and sweet consumption, doing Wii Fitness and taking walks on his own time and attending all his Wellness sessions faithfully. This is what has led Victor to such success and we are so proud of him!
