Brenda Grigsby of Charleston – December Participant of the Month
Brenda is a frequent REFIT participant, and recently reached out to share what the program means to her.
Brenda is a retiree in her sixties, and says that the REFIT program at her church, Tabernacle of Praise in Kanawha County, has been a “godsend” for her. She knows the importance of staying active but says “knowing is much easier than doing.”
Being able to attend a physical activity program that is fun, free, and in a safe location gives Brenda the motivation she needs to continue her exercise program. “We have a great group that meets every Tuesday evening at 6:30 in our church fellowship hall,” says Brenda. “Not only do I get physical benefits but also some social benefits too.”
Brenda describes the REFIT program as a “win-win” and highly recommends it to everyone!
