Corning, N.Y. – Guthrie HealthWorks Wellness & Fitness Center is pleased to announce that Mr. Raymond Kuenzli is the 2013 Member of the Year. Receiving five nominations from fellow members and staff, Mr. Kuenzli was recognized for his dedicated efforts to lead a more fit and active lifestyle. In addition to his personal efforts, Mr. Kuenzli was also recognized for the motivation and support he provides to others through his positive example.

“HealthWorks has helped me to change my life,” said Mr. Kuenzli. “When I first joined, I weighed over 450 pounds and had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.
