Nicole Eison may be new to Texas, but she’s certainly not new to fitness or ambition.

“My husband and I recently moved to the Dallas area from Connecticut,” says Eison. “I had my first interview at Highland Springs just a few hours after our plane touched down.”

Like most fathers, Bill Beatty’s days were filled with work and family life while his two daughters were growing up.

“When you’re working long hours, you’re not really contributing much to the greater community outside your home because you simply don’t have the time,” says Bill, a retired geologist and petroleum engineer. “Now I have more hours in my day to give back.”

In addition to providing support inside the fitness center, Greenspring’s wellness team sponsors a full calendar of communitywide healthy activities, including the annual Turkey Trot, a one-mile walk in support of local charities.

According to the National Institutes of Health, “Making exercise and physical activity a regular part of life can improve health and help maintain independence as you age.”

Greenspring’s dedicated general services team works diligently to keep all roads and walkways clear of snow and ice.

According to the latest edition of The Farmer’s Almanac, the winter of 2018–2019 will feature “arctic air; blustery, bitter winds; sharp drops in temperatures; and widespread snow showers and squalls.” Above-normal precipitation is also in the forecast for the Southeast in January and February 2019.

The ever-popular New Year’s resolution to get in shape often conjures up visions of early-morning gym workouts, endless repetitions, and all-around suffering in a quest to tighten and tone. It’s no wonder most efforts fizzle out by mid-February.

A new initiative at Eagle’s Trace just wrapped up its inaugural year, and the results surpassed expectations.
