Ken joined RehabFit in January 2016 with the goal of increasing ankle strength and mobility and overall fitness. Ken comes in almost every day and likes to talk and joke with fellow RehabFit members. Ken also recently joined the morning strength and balance class and is a great addition to the fun, social group.
Why did you decide to join RehabFit?
I started coming to RehabFit in January of 2016 to help my ankles and keep my body in good condition. Becky made up a program to follow; I stuck to it and it helped. The exercise equipment is high end and fun. The staff is very professional, knowledgeable and will work with you.
What motivates you to keep exercising and coming to RehabFit?
I have always liked exercise, when I was younger I went to the YMCA and Boys Club, played football and was a wrestler in High School. I like coming to RehabFit and socializing while working out. It’s hard to exercise at home on your own.
What changes have you seen in your body, health or general well being since starting at RehabFit?
Since joining RehabFit I find I have more endurance, strength, and I lost some weight. My balance has improved as well.
What changes have you made in your exercise or health routine since joining RehabFit?
I go to RehabFit every day if I can and I also swim at PSU. Exercising twice a day is good. The morning swim loosens me up before I get to RehabFit. I watch what I eat and drink as well.
What kind of advice would you give to other RehabFit members?
I would just keep doing what feels good for your body. When you come here the staff is willing to help anytime. Oh and the TVs will be on line as soon as RehabFit can get them.
