Fitness and wellness is an important cornerstone in the life of Pam Hulley, the wound nurse at Autumn Aged Care’s Clovelly Cottage.
Pam’s journey into fitness began in 2016 when she gave up smoking after more than 20 years of being a smoker.
Pam took the challenge by the horns. At first, she started walking regularly to gradually increase her fitness. From that point, Pam got serious and began working out with dance aerobics and aerobic swimming.
Pam’s fitness goals were well timed – they coincided with the launch of the staff wellness program at Autumn Aged Care.
Pam accessed the benefits of the wellness program to help her reach her personal fitness goals – all of her fitness classes were sponsored by the wellness program.
In 2019, Pam hit the road with a new bicycle, with which she plans to use to go cross country.
Pam also wants to promote the benefits of fitness for nurses.
“Being fit makes me much more alert during the day, increases my inner presence, and I sleep so much better,” Pam said.
Pam also mentioned that her new bike has made her cool in the eyes of her grandchildren – they love to see Nana Pam on her new bike!
The wellness competition, “Be Well 19” #bewell #autumnagedcare, is now open for eligible staff at Autumn Aged Care. Entries will be accepted until 15 April 2019.
And remember to share a photo or video of you getting involved in your fitness program – you could be a winner!
