what makes our danbury, ct gym different?

I remember when I met Sandra; one of our past gym members. She was in her 70’s, reliant on walking with a cane, and shared with me the pain that she was experiencing in her knees and hip. She was told by medical professionals that she’d never walk again without this crutch. I remember looking her in the eye, grabbing her cane, and telling her she does not need this anymore. Yes, my reaction was a bit extreme, but you know what? Sandra is no longer using that cane years later. We strengthened her core, her legs and her joints– all the places where she was feeling pain and discomfort. It took work, and it took investment on her part, but this is coming from someone that was told time and time again that she would never be able to let go of that piece of equipment in order to walk. Here she is, today, living proof that healing can happen with the right technique, approach and exercise plan. I am not a doctor, by any means, but my knowledge and years of experience have been used to the benefit of my clients time and time again and benefit them to its fullest extent.
