The Elevator Can Be An Exercise Site

  • I have knee problems, too, and this is a wonderful idea! Not only did you find another opportunity to do exercises, but you aren't tempted to feel badly that can't do the steps. You've turned a disadvantage into an advantage --- I need to start thinking more like that! - by LINJHA
