"...For the past seven months, I have been taking a Walkaerobics class twice a week from Stash and Norma Furman....... A forty-four-year-old "couch potato"... have done very little exercising prior to joining this club, and this class was recommended to me as...a good way to get back into shape, increase my stamina and lose some weight.....My doctor has recommended that I exercise more and lose weight,....Taking Walkaerobics has enabled me to maintain a seven-pound weight loss and firm up muscles, while increasing my energy level to allow me to manage a fast-paced work schedule and a busy personal life. I also attribute a 20-point drop in my overall cholesterol level directly to the exercise habits formed inWalkaerobics.
"....patient and highly knowledgeable instructors who care about their students and pass along to us the latest health and fitness information as they receive it. They always motivate us to do our "personal best," while making sure that we don't overdo or injure ourselves. The low-impact exercises they have designed are certainly helping me to achieve my fitness goals....I am very grateful to the Furmans and to the Metlife Insurance program for making it financially possible for me to join a health club...."

"I'd like to introduce you to a couple that saved my life! Stash and Norma Furman are considered the guru's of middle age people like you and me (ok,'re still a puppy!)
Last year I enrolled in Stash & Norma's "Walkaerobics" class. Not only did they set me on a path of lifetime exercise, but taught me how to eat healthy for life. I can't believe it took me half my life to learn how to take care of my body. My excuse was always....."I'm in the news business, I'll just grab a quick bite at Jack n the Box or Wendy's," at 45 years of age, I finally learned how to control my weight. Under their guidance, I lost the 15 pounds I'd been trying to lose for the past l0 years."

"They (the Furmans) have also worked very diligently developing a Walkaerobics Program for adults to enhance their cardiovascular fitness. This program has the potential of being marketed to the adult community and is exemplary of their insight into the complex problem of enhancing fitness for mid- life and senior adults. I see them as having a great potential to deveiop into productive members of the scientific community."

Barbee C. Myers, Ph.D.ex-Associate Professor of Exercise Science/Physical Education
"They (the Furmans) have likewi»e developed highly innovative exercise programs for middle-aged adults; they nave extensive experience managing and teaching in such programs; and they have given nothing short of inspirational leadership to such programs. they may well soon be known as among the leading advocates and among the leading developers of such programs."

Robert G. 0sterhoudt, Ph.D Professor of Exerclse Science/Physical Education
"Norma also adds the dimension of her experience and personality to her graduate studies. She has an interesting and varied backgound, not normally found in exercise science graduate students. In addition, she is a late-in-life convert to a healthy lifestyle, and has a great deal of dedication to improving the health and fitness of those over forty."

William J.Stone, Ed.D Professor of Exerclse Science/Physical Education
