Fitness and The Young Professional
Keep It Moving!

“He who has no time for exercise must create time for illness.”
As young and busy professionals, it’s easy to let our health slip through the cracks. With deadlines at work, family time and social lives where are we supposed to fit in an hour or two at the gym? The most common excuse I hear as a personal trainer is “I don’t have time to exercise”. Although this may be true for many people, it is essential that we find time in the day to be active in order to maintain a healthy mind and body. You can even incorporate exercise into your daily routines…and it’s much easier than you think!

What are your feelings on Thursday Network celebrating its 20th anniversary this year? I am very excited about TN’s 20th anniversary. It’s amazing to think back to those early years and realize how far the organization has come and how it has been able to outlast most of the other organizations that were around in the mid-90s.

What has made you remain active in Thursday Network activities and committees for so long? I enjoy the organization and helping out. I attend all kinds of National Urban League and Black Caucus events and just like to tell people about the kinds of things we do. Thursday Network is the best!
