In the Wellness Spotlight: Martin Weinand

The wellness team is shining the spotlight on McElwain resident Martin Wienand for his consistent participation and dedication to a routine fitness program. Martin joined the wellness program right after moving to QPRC about two and a half years ago. Prior to moving to here, Martin lived locally with his wife and enjoyed working around the house, gardening, woodworking, and bowling.

Martin gets up early to walk nearly every day and uses the exercise machines in the Commons Fitness Center at least three times per week to build strength. Martin had never formally exercised with equipment before moving here, but after an introductory training with the wellness staff, he quickly gained confidence and adopted a formal routine. His current goal is to focus on exercises that improve his balance.

Martin’s motivation to keep exercising comes from the stress relief it provides. He stated, “It clears the mind. You concentrate on the exercise and nothing else.” Martin also mentioned that he enjoys both the physical and mental challenge of learning how to use different exercise machines and that changing your routine keeps you interested.

Martin maintained his commitment to exercise even when the COVID-19 pandemic limited his options. He was the first person to contact the wellness department to register for an exercise time slot when we re-opened the program for resident use. Martin’s advice to individuals who are sedentary and looking to get started is, “You don’t have to do a lot. Try a little and ask for help.”
