A Machine That Keeps You Alive...

 

At Journey we are always doing things that other gyms don't do.  For example we include nutrition, we track you down when you don't show up and we like to partner with other health professionals to bring you more resources.

We have amazing healthcare providers in our community who work hard every day to positively impact the health of our local residents.  We recently had the pleasure of interviewing Janet Farwell who is a Perfusionist.  She has been doing her job for over 30 years.  In the interview,  Janet told us about the machine that she runs and this machine essentially keeps patients alive.  

A perfusionist is a healthcare professional who operates the cardiopulmonary bypass machine (heart–lung machine) during cardiac surgery and other surgeries that require cardiopulmonary bypass to manage the patient's physiological status.

We asked Janet her opinions on the problems that we try to solve with diet and exercise and Janet says "You can't change genetics but you can fight it with diet and exercise."  meaning if you are predisposed to diabetes or hypertension a healthy lifestyle is the best defense weapon that you have.

Janet believes that programs like ours that offer accountability to a healthy lifestyle is one of the best ways to avoid entering the OR and being kept alive by the machine that Janet runs.

The common thread amongst all the healthcare professionals that we have interviewed is that they not only talk the talk but they walk the walk.  These healthcare providers are going All In by dedicating their lives to the health of others and also representing what it means to live a healthy lifestyle.  

Thank you Janet Farwell for being "All In"!
