LETTER FROM THE ADMINISTRATOR W J. Thomas Lovell Jr., CPRP | Administrator 220 SE Green Street | Lee’s Summit, MO 64063 816.969.1501 | fax: 816.969.1515 | www.lsparks.net

hen you think of parks & recreation, what comes to mind? Perhaps you imagine the squeal of excitement from children waiting for the water bucket at Miller J. Fields Park Splashpad to tip over and drench them. Or maybe you recall seeing the older couple from your neighborhood out for a walk together on the trail at Lowenstein Park. What about the crack of the bat and the cheering crowd at your child's ball game at Legacy Park? These are joys we’re honored to provide to Lee’s Summit, but it’s only a fraction of who we are. What we do goes far beyond the playground, but there is one unifying principle—one golden strand that ties all of our work together—health and wellness. Lee’s Summit Parks & Recreation is committed to providing the means necessary for you to experience health and wellbeing. During these colder months when it’s not quite as easy to get outside, we want to raise your awareness of the wonderful facilities (pp.10-14) and programs (pp.19-29) available to you to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle. In this issue we have provided an introduction to RevUP (pp.16-17), a holistic wellness program which provides personal and group training in exercise and nutrition. This is an excellent way to end 2016 well and start the new year with physical change that will last. Be sure to see our list of 10 New Year Resolutions you can actually keep (p. 17), as well as our Personal Trainer bios (p. 18). Below are the transformation stories of the women featured on the cover of this issue—two of the most inspiring fitness mentors I know. First is Jennifer Brennan, who transformed herself, changed her life, and is now a driving force in helping LSPR do this for others. Second is Trenice Noelker. Her story is much the same—personal transformation leading to opportunities to transform the lives of others as a personal trainer. She has even done a stint at trying to work with one of her most helpless clients—me! She is wonderful.

REAL LIFE

INSPIRATION Trenice Noelker:

As an adult, I’ve always struggled with my weight. In 2002 I was the heaviest I’d ever been, and was having serious physical issues. A doctor told me if I didn’t want surgery, I needed to lose weight. That’s when I reached my breaking point and decided it was time to get off the couch, start moving, and eating right.

I began by working out in my basement 5 days a week. I refused to say that I was on a “diet.” Instead, I was changing my lifestyle. I joined my local gym to add to my basement workouts, and within a few months I was approached about teaching classes. Reluctantly I agreed. In 2003 I became a certified  group instructor. So I was working full-time as an accountant and parttime as a fitness in-

structor. In 2004 I was enjoying my fifty-pound weight loss and teaching classes part time when I was approached again but this time about becoming a personal trainer. Exercising had become my passion and new way of life. Not only was I helping myself, I was also helping others to achieve their fitness goals. I loved the fitness world so much that I gave up being an accountant to pursue it full time. Thirteen years later I still have as much passion for it as I did when I first started. I’m currently down sixty-five pounds and fight every day to stay on this wonderful journey.

Jennifer Brennan: I'm a mother of two sons (19 and 17), and a 12 year-old

daughter. As a child, health and fitness had been a big part of my life. As I entered my late teens and early twenties, that all changed. 

At 23 years old, I tipped the scale at 256 lbs. and was busting out of size 20 jeans. I frequented fast food chains and drank at least a two liter of soda every day. TV and food were my best friends. I had spiraled into a depression and hated who I'd become. I had no energy or confidence. It took a ton of energy to just get off the sofa. One day I looked at my two sons and thought about the role model they saw in me. In that moment I realized this is the only life I had and decided I wasn’t going to spend it like that. I wanted my children to grow up active, energetic, and happy just being them. So I got up from the sofa, put my sneakers on and decided to run. I ran to the end of the driveway and was tired, so I walked. I told myself, Okay, just run to the next driveway then walk, and so on. For the first time in ages I felt energized and proud of myself. I started exercising and eating healthy, and in less than a year lost over one hundred pounds! I continued to research exercise and nutrition, and kept the weight off for over ten years. Then one day in 2009 I became very sick. After six months on prednisone,  I found myself with an extra forty pounds. That is when I decided that my true passion was health and wellness and wanted to live my life as an example to others. I have lots of energy now which helps me continue to keep up with my three children and numerous clients—whether it's with RevUP, Personal Training, or group exercise classes that I teach. I believe you need to take care of yourself in order to take care of others.  I became a fitness instructor and personal trainer to try to help motivate others to regain their energy & confidence, and feel better overall. I never judge based on weight or fitness level because I can relate to everyones size, energy level, and struggles because I have been there!  I love what I do. My "job" is my passion, so I never feel like I am working. n

Evan Daniels: In 2007 Lee's Summit Parks & Recreation identified a need

in our community—that nationally recommended fitness and nutrition levels weren't being met. LSPR set out to design a program that addressed these needs at the community level and as a result started RevUP as a six-month project that focused on the physical health of families.

RENT RENT RENT

At that time, Evan (Rioux) Daniels was a student at Northwest Missouri State University studying exercise physiology. It was a natural fit when she had completed her degree to take the lead in the fledgling program. During the six-month pilot period, 40 families participated in weekly fitness and boot-camp sessions, meetings with various health professionals, and kept nutrition and exercise logs. Since then the program has undergone several rounds of reevaluation and modification to better accommodate the needs and lifestyles of Lee's Summit families. RevUP is now a 12week community wellness program which focuses on establishing healthy lifestyle choices—namely, fitness and nutrition habits. At the inception of the program, we recognized that even if someone knew all the right information, the difficulty came when putting it into action. So in a very real sense, RevUP was created to provide opportunities for participants to interact with others who, like themselves, faced the inherent challenges of changing their lifestyles for the better. We've seen hundreds of Lee's Summit residents come through RevUP successfully and maintain a healthy lifestyle—balancing the demands of life with needed nutrition and exercise. Evan currently works at the fitness center of Cerner's campus near the Grandview Triangle. She can still often be found at LSPR's Legacy Park Community Center working out though. So if you see her, be sure to thank her for her enormous contribution to the betterment of our community. n

SPOTLIGHT ON HEALTH Eve Rioux:

Even though I no longer work for Lee's Summit Parks & Recreation, I still often wonder how the program is going. At the time I was there, I served as a recreation supervisor with responsibilities for all our fitness programs and instructors.

Evan was brought on to further develop and grow RevUP and did a great job with the 6-month pilot program. Her personality and knowledge in running the program exactly as it had been envisioned became contagious and attracted participants easily. As Tom Lovell has often said, "Evan was the face of RevUP." RevUP was revamped after the initial pilot program by using the data gathered from participant surveys as well as talking individually to the pilot participants. Common factors the participants shared about their expected success were personal training sessions, nutrition, and accountability. These three components became the basics of the program. The small group training sessions allowed the program to be more affordable and the nutrition classes offered friendships and accountability—the best parts of any weight loss and personal fitness journey! n Note: RevUP is one of two copyrighted programs LSPR has developed

Dance the Night Away JOHN BEAUDOIN

“These are the events that we bank in our memories forever.”

OK, now that the Van Halen version of this song is stuck in your head, you may be a little distracted while reading my latest story of Addy.

When I spotted the e-mail from Lee’s Summit Parks & Recreation about the upcoming “fatherdaughter dance” I was immediately intrigued.

Before I knew it, we were smack dab in front of the deejay and cutting a rug. Well, I was dancing; Addy was doing laps around me and the dance floor, occasionally joining a group of girls she didn’t know for a handholding/dance session on the stage and just generally acting like, well, she was 5. It was beyond enjoyable to observe. Not long into the night, “Mickey” came on. Addy’s face lit up and we jammed out to the 80s classic.

An event where I can go and dance with my still young-enough-to-not-be-embarrassed-of-me 5-year old? Yes, sign us up.

So, again, my apologies for sticking that song in your head.

I spent the last few weeks preparing Addy for the event, reminding her every chance I could that “we are going to a dance together, are you ready?”

From the 5-year-old perspective, the night was unique and fun. Dinner and dancing, photo opportunities, cupcakes and just general merriment and mayhem.

She always responded with an enthusiastic “yes” to that one. When we arrived for the big event, the crazy kid could hardly stand still. Earlier in the day, during a visit to the grocery store, Addy and I were, for some reason, belting out “oh Mickey, you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind…hey Mickey! Hey Mickey.” I don’t know how that got started but it made for an entertaining jaunt through the store.

These are the events that we bank in our memories forever.

As Addy pranced down the red carpet (shoes off and sans her corsage…there are some battles I just don’t fight) we could hear the music spilling out of the “ballroom” where dozens of daddies and daughters had converged for the event.

Addy and I ended the night with frozen yogurt with way too many toppings, a fitting end as we both were exhausted from whatever moves we left on the dance floor. Thanks Addy for putting up with your singing, dancing dad for the night. Look for us again next year when our moves will surely be even better. n

12-WEEK WELLNESS PROGRAM Includes membership to Legacy Park & Gamber Community Centers

Weight Loss, decreased body comp & cholesterol, increased strength, endurance, energy and more!

FIT TIP

Think about what you did in 2016. Did you keep your New Year’s resolution or did life get in the way? If you think you’ll do the same this year, break out of the pattern and choose to be different. Was your diet too strict, exercise boring or too intense? Choose to modify what you’re doing so that you can sustain your diet and exercise for life.

Small groups give you the individualized attention you deserve. With new workouts every week, you will build strength, improve endurance, and learn the skills necessary to feel confident with exercise.

HEALTHY EATING EVERY DAY (HEED)

Each week attend a one hour session designed to improve your nutritional choices, eating habits, and food knowledge. Eating healthy has never been so easy!

N ew year, new you! I bet we’re all sick of reading that headline. Especially around this time of year. Between pumpkin pie and pecan pie and sweet potato pie... well, you get the picture.

You don’t have to be disappointed when March rolls around. With Lee’s Summit Parks & Recreation’s RevUP program you can succeed at achieving your health & wellness goals in 2017. How can we be so confident? Because dozens of folks right here in Lee’s Summit who are just like you have done it already.

Fill Half Your Plate with Veggies Veggies add a lot of substance for not a lot of calories. LSPR offers the Healthy Eating Every Day course that teaches how to properly change your nutrition habits. Vary Your Workouts Your body is really good at only doing what it has to. Make sure to keep it guessing by switching up your exercises every 4-6 weeks. Walk at Least 10 Minutes a Day Not able to fit a full 30 minutes in each day? Studies have shown that as little as 10 minutes of light walking can improve blood cholesterol and sugar levels in the longterm.

#DidYouKnow According to a 2002 study for The American Journal of Preventative Medicine, community-wide fitness campaigns help by encouraging, on average, 4.2 percent of residents to begin engaging in physical activity. If even one in ten of those newly active people transitions from obesity to a healthy weight, medical costs would fall by $6.30 for each man, woman, and child in that city per year. In Lee’s Summit, with over 93,000 residents, that translates to nearly $586,000. #LSParksandRec

Lee's Summit Parks & Recreation is proud to partner with Lee's Summit Medical Center

Purchase a Fitness Tracker Buying a fitness tracker will allow you to monitor number of steps/miles walked, sleep, heart rate and more. Compare trackers from different companies to find out which is the best for you. Do 10 Push-ups Every Commercial Break Didn’t make it to the gym today? You can still get your exercise in at home. Try different exercises like jumping jacks, sit-ups—anything that gets your heart rate going. Start Your Day with a Protein-Rich Breakfast Eating a protein rich breakfast jump starts your metabolism and keeps you feeling fuller longer which helps prevent unnecessary snacking. Find a Training Partner Having a training partner helps keep you accountable. Find someone who likes to work out and set a consistent date. You are far more likely to hold yourself accountable when someone else is also depending on you. Hire a Personal Trainer LPCC has trainers that will design a workout specific to your needs and hold you accountable to help you achieve your goals. See page 18 for a list of our personal trainers! Consistently Get 8 Hours of Sleep When you’re sleep deprived leptin levels fall while ghrelin levels rise, leading to increased appetite and cravings for sweet and starchy foods. Drink Two Liters of Water a Day An average daily minimum of 2 liters will help achieve weight loss. Drink a glass of water prior to your meal to cut down on added calories. The more water you drink the more water your body will crave.
