I came to Easy Exercising as my mobility had seriously fallen. I broke my arm a couple of years ago, which prevented me from doing basic tasks. When I went shopping, I would have to ask people to get items off the shelf because I was unable to reach.
After two weeks at Easy Exercising for the Over 50s, I was able to raise and stretch my arms around to my back!
Within four weeks, I was able to pick up items from the upper shelves without assistance. I now help others with similar issues. In my darkest hour at home, it was a nightmare to pick up items from the floor. To get back onto my feet, I would have to use the sofa, coffee table or any other furniture that was around. I was also unable to sit on a chair without assistance. After four weeks at Easy Exercising, I no longer require assistance or use the furniture to get off the floor.
My husband and I went to a gym, but the costs were high and if I wanted help, then I would have to pay for a fitness instructor. There were a lot of younger people around and I felt intimidated. At Easy Exercising, I found that I was exercising with my age group and that they had similar injuries and issues. The staff were ready to help, as and when I needed assistance.
I am now fitter and have more energy. I feel like a 60 year old and I can now do those tasks that a 60 year old can do.
