' I am writing to let you know how grateful I am to you and the instructors for my back recovery!
I have lived with back troubles for most of my life. It had progressively gotten worse after each pregnancy. For the last three years I was in constant pain. I went to doctors, a physical therapist , and chiropractors which only provided a small amount of relief for a small amount of time for a large amount of money. I was a 30 yr old walking around in an arthritic 80 yr old body. I needed help with everything from lifting out the trash bag to getting out of bed in the morning.
Going into my first boot camp class I was limping with pain and thought I could not do it, but pushed through. I went to the next couple of classes with the same feeling and then soon realized the pain was gone. I started in late September and by November I was no longer in pain. It has not been an easy road and I have a long way to go . My name is not at the top of the list and I still feel like I am not going to make it through the WOD every time, but I come home and feel much better because I have built up stamina,and strength which have led to a pain free life and that is priceless.
My favorite part of class is the weight lifting sessions where I can see the progress of my strength and literally feel my stomach muscles coming back together. The cardio I am not so fond of but I am grateful for it when I do tasking things like climbing flights of stairs and am no longer out of breath. The approach to exercise as a whole has made me feel so much healthier.
