Tom and Dana Nixon

Dana and Tom

Dana and Tom Nixon are different people from when they first joined the Y in July of 2011… about 200 lbs. different!

Dana and Tom took the first steps towards a healthier lifestyle when they became Y members through the Y’s corporate membership program with Tom’s employer, D.L. Landis.

Dana admits that joining the Y was a huge step for their family, but they felt very comfortable at the Y and being part of the group exercises classes motivated them to stick with their commitment. (They regularly participate in Power Hour, Body PUMP, Core-n-More, Zumba and Aqua Zumba). They feel very supported and encouraged by the instructors and attend classes as a couple whenever Tom is not out of town for his job. They’ve also formed new friendships and based on their experience, have recommended the Y to other people.

Dana and Tom report that their overall health has improved and they now do activities such as going for walks that they would not have done before their weight loss.
