I’ve been active all my life, biking, running, gym memberships, yoga, P90X, etc. After being diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in my mid-20s I also became very conscientious about what I eat. I’ve never had to battle weight loss, and was confident in my ability to manage a healthy lifestyle on my own.
However about 2 years ago I started having pain in my left shoulder – the result of 16 years of sitting at a desk. I got some relief from physical therapy, but could not go back to strength training without pain. I needed help!! I heard about Advantage from a co-worker that had also recently finished physical therapy. When I started, my intent was to work with a personal trainer for about 3 months. A year later I am still a member, and I have no intentions of leaving. I work out with Will, my trainer, 3 times a week. With Will’s coaching I’ve not only increased the strength and mobility in my shoulder, but also achieved a higher level of overall fitness than I ever could do alone. Over this past year I have gained 7 lbs. as a result of creating a leaner body composition. I’ve also learned how to move like an athlete, and have improved coordination. I look forward to every work out!
