Champions Club Members Championing Healthy Habits

Champions Club members are champions through and through! There is nothing our staff loves more than cheering on our members as they crush goals and reach new heights.

Over the holidays, two incredible members reached out to share how belonging to Champions Club impacted their lives in 2021! Hearing their stories of dedication and resilience motivates us to continue providing our members with world-class experiences.

Here’s what our members had to say!

Lourie Houghland:
“I was casually walking across the grass in my front yard when I tripped on an unseen object and suddenly fell to the ground. I landed with my face in the grass and on my forearms, somewhat like Pete Rose sliding into home plate. I sustained NO injury at all, and I can attribute that to staying in shape by exercising at The Marq six days per week! Being flexible and strong is so important—especially as we age! I enjoy water aerobics, lifting weights, and cardio along with the fellowship of other Marq members who provide great encouragement.”

CeliaJohn Loyd and daughter Celia Loyd:
“Celia Loyd, age 12, and her Dad, John Loyd, completed the Honolulu marathon on December 12. Celia finished the 26.2-mile marathon distance in 5 hours, 27 minutes! We trained A LOT at The Marq! We used the pool to swim laps, the sauna to prepare for the Honolulu heat and humidity, and the track/treadmill(s) for running. The Marq helped us to be prepared and to get across the finish line!”

Way to go, Lourie, John, and Celia! We are so proud of your accomplishments and are happy to be a part of your wellness journey.
