Family wellness makeover: Month 8

It's month eight of the yearlong Morfidis family health makeover. Here's an update on the progress of Despina and George and their daughters, Ria and Stefi.

Despina is now doing more aerobic exercise. She's at the gym at least six times a week, alternating weight-resistance training days with cardiovascular exercise days. Feeling stronger and more fit, she was skiing on the weekends with family. It was a goal she never thought she would accomplish!

George plans his week around his gym visits. He continues to struggle with his diet but is newly motivated by friends, neighbours and work colleagues who have been inspired by George's efforts and have joined gyms themselves. Talk about motivation, says George.

Despite a busy workload at school, Ria gets daily exercise. She walks to school and takes gym class every day. She went snowboarding every weekend with the family in the winter and occasionally goes to the gym with Despina to work out.

Stefi added an extra session with her gymnastics coach to learn a floor routine for an upcoming competition. That's in addition to the nine hours she already does!
