His hobbies include gardening, photography, watching the Packers, Badgers, Brewers and Bucks. Spending time with his grandchildren is also very important to Lee. In addition, he is one of the founders of the Green Bay Botanical Garden.
Lee and his wife Louise both worked out at Bellin Health Fitness Center for many years by themselves, but never had a trainer until Louise was diagnosed with cancer. Louise was so impressed by the help she received from Tim and others at the fitness center that she convinced Lee to pursue training as well. Tyson was recommended to be a good fit for Lee. He has made great strides with Tyson during the last four years of training. Lee’s journey started with general conditioning, but then Lee states, “this 78 year old ran into some problems”. First an MRI showed an upper back problem that was causing some neuropathy. Tyson, working with Physical Therapist Joe Kucksdorf, came up with a plan. Then another major obstacle arose for Lee. Two years ago, Lee severely broke his leg and was not able to bear weight for 4 months. Tyson set up another rehab plan, and with his guidance Lee is now walking pain-free. Because of Bellin Health Fitness, Lee enjoys working out and attending weekly training sessions with Tyson. He is happy that Louise motivated him to get him into the fitness center and training with Tyson. Lee attributes his improved quality of life to working out and training with Tyson, he says, “it has helped me feel a young 78 years”!
