Nancy Hogan runs through her workout routine with the guidance of personal trainer Jacob Relation at Anytime Fitness in Lake Wales.

When Nancy Hogan first walked through the doors of the local fitness center, she was just beginning to build the momentum to finally get on a regular exercise routine. The retired school teacher, who lives in Lake Wales, says she was a bit intimidated and overwhelmed by the equipment and stations.

That’s not an uncommon experience for those beginning a regular fitness routine or getting back to one after a long period of inactivity.

According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, less than 5 percent of adults participate in 30 minutes of physical activity each day and only one in three adults gets the recommended amount of physical activity each week.

Hogan, 64, no longer wanted to be among those groups, so she joined Anytime Fitness in Lake Wales, a franchise of 24-hour health and fitness clubs headquartered in Woodbury, Minn. One of her goals was to strengthen her right leg, which she says has iliotibial band problems.
