Meet TeveTeve Guerra
Secretary, Maimonides Medical Center
I love how it makes me feel energized; it really kick-starts my day!
Teve Guerra had been active all her life, so when her gym closed in 2020 due to the pandemic, she was lost. She soon noticed she was gaining weight and feeling sluggish. Once the gym re-opened, she couldn’t wait to return. “It was hard to work out in a mask, but that didn’t stop me!” she recalls.
Now, Teve goes to the gym three times a week before work. “I love how it makes me feel energized; it really kick-starts my day!” she says. Teve does a variety of workouts—treadmill, weight exercises and spin classes—so she doesn’t get bored. “It gets easier once you start,” she says, “and the health benefits really make it worth the effort!”
