Barb Shares Her Experience

"The program is awesome. It is very beneficial. I like how it is geared to my needs.  It is nice that the room is for other people with challenges.  I like that we get to be with other people, learn from others, talk with others. It is a wonderful program with qualified staff. The program has opened me up and connected me with all these other community programs. We're learning so much about my disease and what I should do. It is amazing to see my results."

Hazel Shares Her Experience

"I would recommend the program to anyone who wants to increase strength, endurance, and balance. It has helped me overcome problems with my sciatica condition which has helped me to improve my overall lifestyle. I'm hoping I will even be able to get rid of my walker sometime!"
