John asked me if I'd consider writing something as client of the month. My first thought was why me? Well, I've been part of the IF family now for over two years no and I'm certainly no poster child but, I have to say how I started out and where I am now, things have changed considerably. My initial motivation for joining was prompted by the orthopedic surgeon’s message that if I didn't lose weight and strengthen my legs that I would need new knees sooner than I wanted. Today my overall health is better. I am taking less medications and I haven't had to go back and get injections for my knees and overall pain is much less. Education in proper nutrition continues to be helpful and I have a much better understanding of achievable fitness goals than any point in my life.
Looking forward to retirement I continue to work at being in the best possible shape in order to do some of the things I only dreamed of doing. New goals, experiences and outlooks in life are possible with the help of the Individual Fitness Team. Recently I have booked a vacation for next September. A seven- day rafting / hiking trip down the Colorado River, 270 miles through the Grand Canyon lead by a Hopi Indian Archaeologist. Thanks’ IF!
