Sean O’Malley

January 2020

Meet our member profile for January, Sean O'Malley (though many of you probably already know Sean, or have seen him walking the Track). He's at the CGC every day, usually twice, working on bettering his health. Sean was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, which prompted him to make his health a priority. By adopting healthy habits, which included regular visits to the CGC, he's now diabetes-free and 35 pounds lighter! Now that he's put a check mark next to one health goal, he's not stopping - it's onto improving his cardio.
