I’ve been a Wellness Member continuously since November 2007. I stress “continuously” as this has been the only “gym” membership that I have stuck with. Why? The staff is friendly, helpful, and encouraging. Also, being older and less in shape, being a member of TherapyWorks Wellness Center is not as intimidating as being around the members of some of the larger gyms. I have increased my stamina and my strength, noticing a large increase in my daily activities.
I came to the Wellness Center via Physical Therapy at TherapyWorks. I already knew many of the staff when I started working out. They were helpful, friendly and provided a safe environment in which I feel quite comfortable. Since starting at the Wellness Center about 16 months ago, I’ve seen a dramatic increase in my fitness. I have more endurance, stamina, and strength. I have the confidence to try new things as well. My friends tell me I even walk differently. My first garden workout this spring was a bit easier, too. And the problem that first brought me in for therapy is now much improved.
I had been bothered by upper back pain for several years/never so severe that I had done anything about it, but chronically annoying. I came to TherapyWorks and the causes of the pain (postural issues) were identified, and a combination of massage, ultrasound, and exercise succeeded in eliminating the pain entirely. I’m not sure I really thought it could be done, but thanks to skilled professional help – and a caring approach – all goals were achieved.
