Secrets of Success

Get Back To The Gym




It is so hard to get there, but I know from experience how great I feel once I am in the car, and how much better I feel when I am on my way home. It helps my mood so much.

  • I was fortunate enough to use a therapy pool last week to help my knees and a foot with severe arthritis. It was such a wonderful feeling to find a warm pool in a warm room, and being able to do the exercises that will help me feel better and move more easily.
    I can't use the gym, but I imagine that having a good day at the gym is like enjoying the exercises at the pool. Lucky Us! - by MOONGLOWSNANA
