Being 75 years old and diagnosed with Arthritis 15 years ago, my joints were getting progressively worse and worse. Not being able to take ant-inflammatory medication because of adverse effects, I was becoming more debilitated in my daily movements and in constant chronic pain.
I heard about Heart Smart Minute from a friend online and decided to give it a try, since nothing else seem to work, I had nothing to lose by trying out this online program.
The website had video exercises that specialized in rehabbing weak muscles and joints, so I decided to give it a try. To my amazement, I was able to tolerate the exercises well. By day three, I noticed I did not have the searing pain in my wrists, shoulders, and knees.
By the end of the first week I was able to reach up in the cupboard without pain, something I haven’t been able to do in years. After a few weeks doing the rehab exercises I felt strong enough to give the modified resistance training exercises a try.
I started slow and worked my way up to using five pound weights and doing three different intervals a day. My new found strength gave me the motivation to change my diet and overall lifestyle, Heart Smart Minute, gave me the exercises, nutrition guidance, and online support to achieve what I never thought possible– I lost 25 pounds in one month and I’m enjoying a healthy and pain free lifestyle.
Thank you, Alana and Heart Smart Minute for giving me my quality of life back.
