Z3 Member Awarded Outstanding Wellness Award
(Scarborough, ME –January 31, 2013) Melissa Cookson, of Scarborough, received the Outstanding Achievement Award from her employer, Norway Savings Bank on Tuesday, February 5. This award, given at their Annual Employee Celebration, is given to the employee who has achieved a new level of health and wellness during the past year.
Melissa Cookson, 47 and a three year survivor of breast cancer, has been a member of Zone 3 Fitness since May of 2012. In those 9 months, she has lost over 20 lbs., run her first 5K race, and is currently training for the Tough Mountain Challenge, a 3 mile obstacle adventure race coming up in July at Sunday Mountain River. Most importantly she has dropped her health risk indicators from the high risk range to the low risk range.
Each year, Norway Savings Bank recognizes one of their employees who has been a leader and shining example in living a healthy life. Missy knew that she needed to make some changes to her daily habits to decrease her health risks.
Missy attends Z3 Circuit Training 4-5 times a week, which gives her a combination of cardio, strength and balance workout. “The first time I did the circuit training I thought I was going to die….but I was determined that I was going to stick with it and get my healthy body back. And even though it was a hard workout, it was fun and the people at the gym were great. I love the energy and the variety of workouts!” says Missy Cookson.
Nicole Avery, owner of Zone 3 Fitness and one of Missy’s trainers, notes that their facility specializes in personalized service and helping people get great results in a fun, dynamic, supportive environment. “When you walk into a Z3 Circuit Training, you will see people of all ages, sizes and fitness levels doing the same training, but with modifications to fit each of them.” notes Avery. “Our trainers are committed to getting results AND keeping our members motivated and healthy. It’s rewarding to see someone like Missy find their inner athlete and enjoy the many benefits that come from regular fitness and healthy habits. And she is an inspiration to many of our new members who are following her lead.”
Avery also commented that she has been very impressed with Norway Savings Bank’s commitment to their employees and their health. They have several programs that are focused on encouraging and rewarding healthy habits and activities. For Melissa Cookson, having regular access to a Health Coach and up-to-date personalized health risk indicators played a big role in her staying focused and achieving such great results.
