It’s finally Friday again! That means the spotlight is on another one of our amazing fitness patrons. Today, meet Derrick McGuire, who has been a member of the fitness center for the past 12 years!

Tell us about yourself and how long you’ve been a member of the Kettering Fitness and Wellness Center.

Life time Daytonian. Patterson Co-Op class of 1971. Worked over 50 years in it, retired after 45 years at Lexis Nexis. Now enjoying time with family and friends, golfing and UD basketball. Sandy and I have been members of the Kettering Recreation Complex for 12 years.

What personal obstacles have you overcome and how did our fitness facilities help you through?

Attending the Fitness Center three to four times per week has helped me reduce my weight, control my cholesterol and maintain good overall health.  Mental and physical.

Do you have any personal health and fitness goals, won a competition, etc.?

Quality of life and longevity come with daily fitness and proper eating.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The staff – especially Joy – add to the pleasure of my daily visits.
