A newly-discovered treasure in Lewes

June 11, 2019

It has been 30-plus years ago that I first discovered Lewes. Initially I was struck by both the natural beauty of the setting and the historic charm of the town. With each passing year I increasingly became aware of even greater assets surrounding me, the people.

Generally, a Southern gentility is combined with a cosmopolitan mentality. Additionally I have had the opportunity to encounter some of the finest professionals, artisans, craftspersons, restaurateurs, tradespeople, etc. found in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Since I believe in sharing the wealth, I am not reluctant to tell anyone and everyone of my latest discovery. My doctors, dentist, HVAC service provider, electrician, landscaper, carpenter, painter all get equal billing. Some of these individuals because of their visibility have greater exposure.

Rather recently I had a new insight. While the passing of time provided a perspective of the growth and development of my hometown, it also was eroding my body. Getting older is not for the faint of heart. Increasingly I was having problems with balance. I knew this was a problem. One of the first questions all my healthccare providers asked was: have you fallen? While I had not, I knew Ineeded to be careful.

It was then I encountered a service provider who might help me address this new personal issue. He is a personal trainer. Years earlier I had met him at a local fitness center. Now he was operating his own studio on Savannah Road known as Fit Well. Offering individual customized techniques, I have seen improvement in balance, coordination, strength and over all fitness. Additionally,
I have lost 30-plus pounds with his assistance in the last six months. 

While I am not yet an Adonis, he can't perform miracles, I am in better shape and fitness then I have been in 40 years. For al l these reasons, I feel compelled to share the wealth of an outstanding resource: Fit Well on Savannah Road, and Christopher (Chris) Selitto, the proprietor.
