As is the case with many people, if Mueller and his wife do not come to the YMCA, they have a tendency to be inactive.

Once at the YMCA, Mueller decided he needed a personal trainer in order to learn how to use the equipment properly and hold himself accountable with an appointment.

Since becoming a member, Mueller has been training with Katrina Blackwell for a little over a year.

His self-esteem has improved, as he feels really good about himself. Additionally, he doesn’t feel like a stranger anymore, and the YMCA has become a comfortable place for Mueller and his family.
