Jeff Lethbridge

June 2022

Jeff isn’t one to shy away from a challenge. In fact, he loves them. Whether it’s leading a routine in Dance Fusion class or taking on his annual 30-day challenge – 1,000 laps of the pool, 1,200 minutes of dancing and 3,000 sit-ups – Jeff is always game. He believes that staying fit will help him in later years, but also allow him to keep up with his grandson. Since becoming a member, Jeff has made the most of the facility using every area to infuse his workouts with variety and a balance between challenge and recovery. Don’t be surprised if you see him next to you on the mat, in the pool, on the court or in class – be sure to say “hi” if you do!
