Libby is an avid gardener, who wakes up early every morning to tend to her own garden and her neighbor’s garden. She’s stayed active through the work she’s put into her fitness and health. One way she exercises is through our Small Group Training program at HouseFit.
She started attending HouseFit back in 2019. After her husband’s passing had affected her greatly, she combatted grief through wellness. She saw one of our newspaper ads and decided to give our classes a try. While at HouseFit, Libby has overcome many obstacles. She’s recovered from a fractured pelvis and maintained movement in her hand and arm that was lost due to a stroke she experienced several years prior. For the past two years, Libby has been doing amazing at small group training and enjoys the social and engaging environment. She also appreciates the workouts incorporating a mental component along with movements. “I find the cognitive portion challenging but helpful,” She said. She describes the atmosphere as comfortable, lighthearted, and challenging.
Through her hard work, she was able to enjoy a trip to Yellowstone National Park. There she completed 7 hikes in 5 days, hiking a total of 10 miles! While bundled up for the weather, she enjoyed incredible scenery. Libby viewed the beautiful Yellowstone canyon, geysers, and waterfalls along the trails. She even saw many bison, elk, and bears! Although it was due to the effort she put into it, Libby credits HouseFit with giving her the ability to enjoy this trip. She joked, “during my trip I thought, thank goodness I did all those squats.
Libby is a retired nurse who has worked with elderly patients. This has given her the knowledge of just how important it is to exercise as you age. She stays active to prolong and preserve the quality of life she has so she can spend time with her 4 grandchildren.
She has recommended HouseFit for Physical Therapy services to others. She notes our ability to adapt and modify to all skill levels. To her, our company name's a reminder of a major goal many of our clients have. “The big thing is your name,” she explained. “It shows me that you’re trying to help us stay in our homes and stay independent.
