The Cypress Creek EMS Wellness program at Athlete Training and Health (ATH) is open to employees, volunteers and, as of October 1, dependents. Registration ends October 10.
One of the first to sign up after the program was renewed was Volunteer EMT Chris Wehe. If you’ve never met him, his last name is pronounced “Way”. But for the purposes of this article, let’s go with “Weigh”.
Those who know Chris can see the results he’s gotten at ATH. Chris has lost more than 50 pounds and he has taken full advantage of the available experts from exercise tailored for his specific needs to nutrition advice from a dietician.
So, not only has he taken a lot of weight off, he’s been able to keep it off. Chris says, “I have been on diets and exercise programs before but have never been able to lose the weight and keep it off. The staff at ATH have kept me motivated to continue exercising to keep the weight off and be in the best shape I have been in over 20 years.”

Chris goes on to say that, “Their programs are different every day, and emphasize a different body group. The HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is really challenging and makes you push yourself. I have come a long way since my first HIIT class when I thought I was going to pass out to now, where I am wearing a weight vest to challenge myself even more.”
And there have been measurable health differences besides just weight. Chris says, “Having access to a nutritionist has helped me eat better and lower my blood pressure 30 to 40 percent. The whole staff is wonderfully supportive, friendly and always motivating me to push myself even more.”
Chris highly recommends ATH saying, “It included more than just a place to work out…nutritional help, weight, and body fat tracking, moral support and workouts designed for the physical requirements of our jobs not only made it easier to lose weight but I could feel the results outside the gym. Plus, their nutritional advice means I eat better and don’t feel as hungry because I don’t load up on empty calories.”
Finally, there’s the cost. Since the program is supplemented by CCEMS, the cost is only $20 a month.
Chris says, “There is no way I could get I all this help for only $20 a month. I know people who spend hundreds of dollars a month for gym membership, cross-fit classes and diet/nutritional help, which we can get for $20/month thanks to Cypress Creek’s commitment.”
