Growing Bolder


When an illness forced career educator Nan Druskin into an early retirement, she worried how she'd spend her days. Fortunately, she discovered a new passion -- engaging with new people at her local community center. Now, she not only improves her body with daily workouts at the center, she's found a strong, robust social circle she never imagined existed.

Get her tips for making friends, something that can be difficult as an adult, and see why she credits her new fitness family with changing her entire life.

Growing Bolder is proud to present this story as part of our partnership with the Winter Park Health Foundation and its forthcoming Center for Health & Wellbeing, scheduled to open in late 2018.
Together, we’re building the Wellbeing Network, an online, go-to resource for education, motivation, and real-life stories featuring the seven dimensions of wellbeing: those integral parts of our mind, body, and spirit that form the very essence of our wellbeing, and need life-long nurturing.

Ernestine Shepherd is living proof that’s it’s never too late to achieve. She never worked out a day in her life until she was 56 years old.

Now in her 70s, she says she’s never felt better and never been more successful. Not only is she a personal trainer, she is also a model! She believes there are three main qualities that can improve your life — determination, dedication and discipline.

She’s also a big proponent of encouragement, inspiration and family support. And she talks about that and much more with Growing Bolder here.

We're sending best wishes to the family and loved ones of Alene Duerk, who died this week at the age of 98. Duerk, a nurse, enlisted in the military during World War II and eventually rose through the ranks. She became the first female Rear Admiral in the history of the U.S. Navy, and talked about her extraordinary journey on Growing Bolder Radio. We thank her for her service, and proudly share this interview in her honor.
Thanks to our Growing Bolder Partners and Sponsors!
Spine surgeons like Dr. Robert Masson (also Growing Bolder’s medical director) say the key to a successful, extreme recovery, is what patients do in the weeks and years before a procedure, and the choices that they make every single day. That’s why Dr. Masson and his team at Restitute Health created Spine™, a nutriment formula specially formulated for athletes of all ages to support and enhance spine health and overall mobility.
