Greg Wolfe had no idea what he was getting into, but he’s not the type to say no when he can say yes. Thus, the professional hockey player ended up teaching a senior water fitness class.
The Adirondack Thunder forward spent the offseason working at the Glens Falls Family YMCA. About a month ago, wellness director Lisa Camp approached him about being a long-term substitute in the aqua fit class. The usual instructor, Phyllis Hudson, built the class herself 20 years ago and some of the 40-plus women have been in the class that long.
So it wasn’t exactly a seemless transition to bring in a 26-year-old man to fill in. But that’s what Wolfe did. The mostly middle-aged and elderly women of the class have now adopted him as one of their own — even if he doesn’t count like Hudson does.
