"As a middle-aged woman who had not been taking very good care of myself over the last 10+ years, I was dealing with a lot of health issues. I had gained so much weight that I was considered morbidly obese, and I had received a total hip replacement & 2 total knee replacements - all before I had turned 50! I was in constant pain & limited as to what I could do. I avoided stairs as much as possible, and couldn't enjoy family bike rides & other outdoor activities. My whole life was affected negatively by my debilitating health. After losing a significant amount of weight, I began training with Ryan. Honestly, I was so scared of even going to that first session! I was worried about embarrassing myself, and that a trainer wouldn't understand the limitations I had because of my joint replacements. During my first session, I expressed those concerns to Ryan & he was awesome at coming up with some alternatives to help me get through the session. I was so excited & relieved that the experience had been positive! I began to train weekly, and eventually twice per week. Ryan has helped me to become stronger both physically & mentally, and I can do things now that I really shouldn't be able to do! I was told that I wouldn't be able to kneel/crawl ever again, but I can! This past summer, I was able to enjoy & keep up with my family on a 22 mile bike ride along the beach in MA. That was monumental for me! It was also the first camping trip we'd taken in a few years that I wasn't in constant pain, and actually had energy! Who knows what next summer will bring! I highly recommend Ryan Sensenig at Pinnacle Strength & Fitness, no matter what level of fitness you're at currently!"
