Making Strides

“As a professional dog walker/sitter, I had always stayed in shape. In May of 2015, a dog bit my right forearm. My arm swelled up and the impact damaged my ulnar nerve affecting the use of my arm. The recovery took longer than I expected resulting in muscle loss through my entire body. In December of 2016, I signed up to Fitness 19 in Secane in hopes of getting my strength back. After I had a free assessment done by Chris Patrikios, I signed up for personal training with him. I had only expected to use the personal training as a jump start. But, Chris keeps the workouts varied, fun and more challenging than I would do on my own. When I have nerve pain, Chris modifies my workouts so that it doesn’t impact my arm so much. Since I am very happy with my results, I continue to use the personal training two times a week. In addition, the staff is very friendly and so are the members.”
