Michael SletteboHavasu Healthy Striders
 Michael Slettebo is our walker for February.  He is 55 years young and has been married to his high school sweetheart and best friend Jenny for 35 yrs!!! That is awesome!!!  He still remembers the first day he saw her at school!! They have 2 beautiful daughters (yes they are!) and 4 wonderful grandchildren.  He moved from Chino, California, in the summer heat of 1989. He has been employed by the Lake Havasu City Wastewater Division for almost 23 years.
 
Michael says exercise is a bit of an addiction for him that he feels more people should experiment with.  He loves being outdoors and says Lake Havasu has so much to offer if you just get out and see it while walking, hiking or his favorite, bicycling.  His goal is 5-6 days a week of exercise.
Michael tries to mix up the type of exercise he does to keep it fresh.  He does road biking, mountain biking, running on or off road, swimming at the aquatic center or lake, and hiking in the desert or mountains with his human training partners, Jenny or Alex, or his chocolate lab Pebbles.
 
Michael says his primary health issue that exercise has helped him with is weight control and circulation.  His father lost both of his legs late in life primarily from poor circulation from being sedentary.
 
Michael has a saying that he passes on, “more out than in” meaning burn more calories while working out than you take in each day.  It’s never too late to start a workout program; you just have to start!! So as Michael says, Lake Havasu has a lot to offer so take advantage of it and
