Six months and 50 pounds later, Courts Plus Member Jennie is feeling elated and energized about the change in direction her health has taken in such a short time.
Jennie began this fitness journey last May. While she’s been a member at Courts Plus for a few years, her birthday pushed her to reevaluate her life. She had been a runner, participating in the Chicago Marathon in 2016, but since then her fitness activity had dropped off. “I was looking at my life looking at myself going…I need to do something,” she says.
