41 Years of Helping You
e first began our journey into the fitness industry in 1972, when we opened Econo Tennis with our partners. Our very first location in Walpole held 3 tennis courts, and operated as a self-service key-card facility, the first of its kind in the United States. Econo Tennis expanded to include six additional locations across Massachusetts and Rhode Island. In 1977 we built our Dedham location, home to not only tennis and racquetball courts, but also a small fitness center. We called it Dedham Racquet Time. The birth of Dedham Racquet Time shifted our focus from recreation to fitness as a means of living well. As we adapted and grew our business, we became acutely aware of the absence of fitness and nutrition education in the healthcare system. Over the past 41 years, we have immersed ourselves in the medical field, thoughtfully expanding to include programs for the health and physical well-being of all ages and fitness backgrounds in our community. The effort and success of our members continues to motivate us. Their passion and desire to live well drives us to provide innovative wellness solutions along with quality, knowledgeable staff. Our sole location is now the heart of our business and home of our mission for a healthier generation. Today, we are Dedham Health and Athletic Complex. Join us in our mission to live well.

ON OUR COVER: This year we feature (left to right) members Sarah Henderson, her daughter Aoife and her mother Joanne. Read Sarah’s story below.
have been a member of Dedham Health since 2007. Before joining the DHAC community, I found my way to yoga in 2000 as way of helping me manage the stress of graduate school. Nearly instantly, I fell in love with the quiet that it commanded in my mind and the calm it fostered in my body. I devoted the next 10 years studying and practicing a vigorous Ashtanga style yoga before landing gently in my first restorative class. The gentleness and passive stretching helped alleviate physical
tension and helped me to cultivate a deeper sense of body awareness. It became my inspiration to seek my teaching certification in 2015. Since then, I have pursued additional training in Yin Yoga as well as Trauma Informed Yoga. All of this is a complement to my role as a psychotherapist. Teaching yoga emphasizes body awareness

Overcoming treatment and remaining human How DHAC encouraged me to keep going.
Kate Johnson DedhamHealth.com
bout fourteen years ago, I was searching for more structure in my workout routine when I came across Dedham Health & Athletic Complex. I took the steps to become a member after learning about the wide variety of programs that are offered, and began to build relationships with not only members like myself, but also the Exercise Physiologists. Shortly after joining, I began to feel a unique sense of community unlike any other fitness center I had previously belonged to. I can say with the utmost gratitude
that these relationships would go on to become a great source of support and encouragement. When I decided to retire from my career as a principal in the Boston Public School system, I made traveling an important part of my life. My friends and I made our way through Italy, Portugal, the Greek Isles, Istanbul and other amazing destinations. I felt incredibly grateful to have had the strength to climb, walk, and explore these places, but was forced to slow down when I was diagnosed with colon cancer in-between trips.

Zumba has been a life changing experience
My passion for dance and fitness have come together.
Tiffany Guarino 4
oming from a dance background, I immediately fell in love with Zumba after taking my first class in 2013. I told myself that I could totally teach this! Zumba is a Latin inspired dance workout party that explores many different rhythms from around the world. I would be able to take my passion for dance and combine it with all elements of fitness to create choreography and routines that were not only fun, but also effective. Becoming a Zumba instructor was one of the best decisions I have
made! It has been a life changing experience. I began teaching at DHAC in 2014. My classes connect people of all ages, backgrounds, and fitness journeys together for one purpose, and that’s Zumba. One of the goals I had when taking on this role was to create a sense of community and family in my classes. Zumba is a place to come and forget about whatever may be happening in your life at the moment. Teaching three times a week, interact with a range of ages, languages, and backgrounds. There are instructors who

How tennis at DHAC makes me young every day!
Renee Yasijian-Dooling DedhamHealth.com
first joined Dedham Health in 2003 on the recommendation of a close friend. It was then, at age 70, I received my first ever tennis instruction as part of a New Member Clinic with coach Naoufal. I played tennis for enjoyment in the past; but realized that day I had much to learn about the technique of the sport and strategies of the game. I hit the ball as it came to me and did my best to have fun. After laughing my way through my first clinic, I began taking regular lessons with Coach Kyle, and played
as often as I could. As I continued to practice I found a love for the game. At 70 years old, having never taken a lesson in my life, I found my beginning. Now, at 85 years old, tennis has become the sport of my life. I visit Dedham Health four to five times per week to work out and to play tennis. I participate in clinics, matches with friends, lessons, and mixed doubles tennis socials. The welcoming community and friendships I’ve made here both on and off the tennis courts make me look forward

My time in the water at DHAC
Swimming has kept me stress-free and active.
Joey Jerome DedhamHealth.com
wim team has easily molded much of my life for the better. It gives me something to get better at, and drive for the next big meet. Teenagers nowadays have a lot of stress, and swimming allows me to clear my head, and focus on what’s important to me. After a long, difficult swim I feel refreshed. It also keeps me active and fit, so I don’t just sit on the couch for hours on end. Swimming also has one of the most positive environments anywhere, and we all share a common goal of getting better
together. When I achieve my goals it gives me a great sense of accomplishment. When I was younger swimming was just a hobby, now, it is a lifestyle”. Joey Jerome has participated in Dedham Health’s swimming program since he was nearly five years old. Starting in swim lessons at level 1, he worked his way up the ladder to reach pre-team at age nine. By that time he was eager to begin swimming competitively. Coaches Chris Klinkow and Mike Moses have worked with Joey since he started in the program and have watched him progress not only Read my full story at DedhamHealth.com/Joey

Notes from our families
can’t imagine what we would’ve done without The Summer Club all of these years! Whether we are here for a full day or just an hour, we always have somewhere to go and kids to play with! We’ve met so many great families and so many friends have joined too! Also, the staff is amazing; they are so friendly and genuine and we all love them! We love The Summer Club! The Bauman Family TSC Members since 2013
e have been members of the Summer Club since our youngest was in diapers; and now our boys race each other down the water slides! What I love best is the
atmosphere by the pool...while there are rules for safety, the kids are allowed to have fun and play. This coupled with the attentive lifeguards allows me to actually relax. There are endless activities to stave off boredom. If they are not racing down the slides they can be in the bumper boats, on the obstacle course or my personal favorite....headed in with the Kids’ Staff for a game of dodgeball, leaving parents a few precious minutes of alone time. We just can’t wait for next summer!

rom the owners to the lifeguards to all the employees in between, especially the young lady Rhini, the staff has made our family so welcome at The Summer Club. My daughter, Bridget, says she loves The Summer Club because she never gets bored with so many activities and the lifelong friends she has made. My son, Tommy, says he would rather spend the four months at The Summer Club during the hot summer than one week at a cottage in Marshfield for the same price. The Bruen Family TSC Members since 2013

I want to give my campers what I’ve received at DHAC.
s a quick introduction my name is Jason Toy, I’m currently 16 years old and I have been going to the Ultimate Day Camp, at DHAC, every summer since I was 6. Up until the summer of 2017 I was a camper/CIT, but starting in 2018 I made the decision to become a counselor myself. In all my years at camp the one week I never wanted to miss was Olympic Week. Spending every year

determined to win the gold medal over my friends was something I never grew tired of doing, and will never grow tired of doing. Along with this, my counselors were always active, making me look forward to coming back week after week, month after month, and year after year. I want the campers of today to have that same feeling and compulsion to return as I did. This is why I ultimately became a camp counselor, because summer really is better at camp!

I Have Never Felt Better
The program at DHAC has turned my life around.
Mike Boyd DedhamHealth.com
he Spine Center team and B.A.S.E. classes at DHAC have helped me not only to transform my exercise routine, but have changed my quality of life, allowing me to live without pain. I can now walk longer distances, stand still for greater lengths of time, sit more comfortably, and get up and down with ease. My back and neck pain is nearly gone. I have worked out for all of my life, and nothing else I have done can compare to the results I’ve experienced from the combination of the incredible care I received in the
Spine Center and attending B.A.S.E. classes. I first visited the Spine Center for physical therapy after a neck injury in 2007. Through hard work and the patience and positive encouragement of the Spine Center team, I improved my everyday life. Several years later, I again sought the help of the Spine Center for a back issue. Steve, Robin, Andrea, and Pam have been alongside me throughout the entire process. They have always been positive, encouraging, and progressed me at the speed I felt comfortable.
