Dale Frietch

June 2017 Member of the Month

As a lifelong athlete and coach, Dale Frietch has always been active. He spent many years of his life training as an athlete or coaching other athletes. Dale, who grew up in Cincinnati, is a graduate of Purcell High School. He then went to Michigan State University where he played baseball.  After graduating, he taught and coached at Moeller High School for five years where he served as Head of the Math Department and coached football, baseball and swimming.  After that, he worked at GE for 36 years in information technology and product support until he retired last year in April.

Since retiring, Dale has had more time to devote to his health. He lost 35 pounds by coming regularly to the Pavilion to workout. You can find Dale walking the track, riding the bikes or working out on the elliptical. His cholesterol is now stabilized and he continues to watch what and how much he eats.

Supervisor of Member Services, Michelle Brooker, notices how hard he works, “He is so dedicated to his health and wellness and is always smiling and upbeat!”

Since joining the Pavilion in 2006, Dale has learned that the “Exercise is Medicine” philosophy really does work. He appreciates that the Pavilion offers a holistic approach to health and wellness and has all the amenities he needs. He enjoys the friendships he has made with other members and knows he is making an investment in his health each time he comes to the Pavilion.

Dale and his wife, Nancy, have five children and 15 grandchildren who they love spending time with. Dale and Nancy also stay busy volunteering for the Arthritis Foundation, the Homeless Center and Food Bank. They are currently looking forward to a trip out West this August when they will get to hike a portion of the Grand Canyon!
