Meet Rosetta Fairchild of Los Angeles

It’s easier for Rosetta Fairchild to list the places she hasn't traveled than to try naming all the places around the world she’s been.
 
“I’ve been traveling for years,” she says. “I love going to other countries to see the way people live. I plan to try to cover the whole world before I’m gone! I’m 67 years old, but I feel like I’m 25!”
 
Retired for four years, Rosetta was introduced to OASIS by a friend. She says it’s the greatest thing that has ever happened to her. The exercise classes alone have completely changed her energy level and her outlook. She joins a group of fellow OASIS mall walkers, “the Pepsteppers,” and has also taken classes in cardio, aerobics, and a chair class.
 
“I didn’t think you could get such a workout from a chair, but our instructor really works us out!” says Rosetta. “Thanks to the getting active in these OASIS classes, and paying attention to my diet, I’ve been able to avoid taking medication for my cholesterol.”
 
Rosetta is especially pleased to feel so engaged in new interests, and to be meeting interesting, new people who have turned into friends.
 
“OASIS keeps you going,” she says. “You don’t have to just sit at home. I tell people to ‘Go for it!’ Life is too short to not participate.”
