As a lifelong athlete and coach, Dale Frietch has always

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.

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

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

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!
