After my husband passed a year ago, I knew I needed to make the decision to get more active to be able to maintain my house, work in my yard and stay independent. I had fallen several times and began to have a real fear of falling again. I found that I was intimidated by the gym scene and wanted to find something suited for my age and physical ability. I am a results-oriented person and have noticed my strength and balance improving. I've lost the fear of falling - it's not something I even think about now.
When I first started classes, I needed to sit often, but not anymore. I recently took my granddaughters downtown and we couldn't find a close parking spot so we ended up walking 5 city blocks on cobblestone! I was so pumped I was able to do that! I considered the local rec center for exercise classes, which were economical. However, I felt more comfortable knowing that I would get instruction from qualified Physical Therapists at HouseFit. They know what they are doing and they are able to come around to help you make sure you're doing it right. The therapists are a great source of education and will give you individual attention. It has been money well spent with awesome results and I'm worth it!
