Quotes from the episode:
"We joined Fort Hill Fitness as members in November 2018 and soon after that I found a listing for the job (customer service representative at the Park District)...and I thought, 'I can do this' - and what a way to serve the community. With my former job as a special education teacher, I was serving the community always. So I applied and got the job and it's been great. I meet so many people, and get to know their lives and what they've gone through. They are trying to get themselves fit and I'm trying to do the same thing. Of course, my membership became free, and I could stay after my shift and go to a class or the fitness center or my favorite, the rowing machine." - Diana
