The Haile Brothers

By February 5, 2020March 1st, 2020Y Stories

Meet brothers, Sam (25) and Jonathan (23). They have been longtime YMCA members and have learned as kids how to swim at the Y, have taken Tae Kwon Do, basketball, and soccer.  Sam is employed in the cyber security field and  Jonathon is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in the same field.

Since graduating from high school, they have been working out together and keeping each other accountable and motivated.  They are a powerhouse team of support for one another in their wellness. They habitually get to the Kerasotes YMCA three to four times a week.  Sam said, “Working out is a privilege.”  Instead of viewing working out as I HAVE to work out today, they both say they GET to work out.  This mindset has helped them in making their work out a habit.  They try to keep things fresh by changing up their work out and welcoming other member’s recommendations.

They joke about diet being eighty-five percent of the program.  So, if you see Jonathan at Panda Express or Sam eating a hamburger, be sure to say hello.
