Henry Mayo Fitness and Health, a new, full service integrated fitness center, is pleased to announce the appointment of Sharlene Duzick as Member Services Director.
Duzick is well recognized in the Santa Clarita Valley fitness community. Prior to her new position, she was the Director of Member Services for the Santa Clarita Valley Family YMCA where she supported community members in developing a healthy lifestyle through personal one-on-one support and in group exercise settings.
“I always have enjoyed educating the community on how to live healthy while supporting and helping them obtain their goals in their wellness journey,” she said.
Duzick has always had a passion for health and wellness which started in high school where she played soccer and softball, then continuing when she became a marathon runner and triathlete.
She also coaches Students Off and Running (SOAR) a group that offers youth in need living in the Santa Clarita Valley the opportunity to participate in a fully supported, 24-week, 380-mile marathon training program.
“It’s very rewarding to work with young people in this program and to watch them as they accomplish something truly extraordinary in a non-competitive arena,” Duzick said.
As a longtime SCV resident, Duzick naturally gravitates toward local outreach and education for the community. She is a former Miss Santa Clarita Valley and a member of JCI Santa Clarita. Duzick is extensively involved in business and philanthropic projects in the SCV. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Marketing from California State University Northridge.
