A Letter from Tom Walsh – February 2023 Newsletter

Dear GreatLIFE Member, Team Member & Support Team, 

   Glad we are done with January! With a little luck, we will be golfing again in 60 days or less. Having lived here almost my entire life, the weather may have been a little harsher than usual but nothing we haven’t dealt with before. So, stay warm and look forward to spring! 

   With the weather being challenging, we have developed a program for you to continue your workouts at home called THR^VE by GreatLIFE which is separate from your GreatLIFE membership. It is a workout program accessed via an app. You can get your first month free by signing up with a code: LAUNCH 100 for the first 100 Members that sign up. There are 4 tracks that you will have access to:

  • Sweat (follow along HIT style video workout).
  • Strength basic beginner level strength track. 
  • Strength intermediate level strength track. 
  • Strength Rx for advanced level strength track. 

Workout are constantly varied and updated weekly with videos demos so you know exactly what to do. To learn more you can go to https://joingreatlife.com/thrve/ if interested. 

January was national mentoring month and our Teammates Mentoring of Sioux falls was very active in recruiting Mentors and celebrate mentoring.  We had a “Thank You” celebration at our Suburban Lanes Family Fun Center for Mentors, their families and guests January 21st. I have been a Teammates mentor for three years and it is one of the best parts of my week! I spend 30 to 45 minutes visiting my student at his school. I leave there with a big smile and a feeling of hope and engagement that carries over to my work and family life. To learn more, go to siouxfallsteammates.org if interested.  

Thanks for being a GreatLIFE Member and don’t forget your someone special this Valentine’s Day! One of my favorite speeches is Theodore Roosevelt’s Man in the Arena, hope you enjoy it as well.
