Meet Saeed Shakir!
Meet Saeed Shakir, a member of the YMCA of Greater Hartford. Saeed is 27 years old and will be turning 28 on March 29th of this year. Two and a half months ago, Saeed started coming to the
Glastonbury Family YMCA. Motivated by his children, he decided that he needed to lose weight before his upcoming birthday. When he signed up for his membership, Saeed weighed in at 376 lbs. Since then, he has been coming to the Glastonbury Y for 30-60 minutes a day and using the treadmill, elliptical, and bikes. In just 2 and a half short months, Saeed has already lost 40 lbs and is feeling amazing! And he’s not done yet. Follow Saeed’s amazing story right here. Then stop in and start your own Y story.
