Personal Training is Important For Those Battling Health Conditions
Nathan has appreciated the accountability he has with seeing a trainer twice per week. He’s also enjoyed the personal exchanges as he, Gina and his husband David talk abut all sorts of things while working out, which helps keep Nathan’s mind off his discomfort. Working out with CHF is highly uncomfortable, but Nathan has been a trooper about it.
Nathan’s program consists of walking with just his cane (as opposed to his walker which he used to rely on more), hand weights, cable machines, kettlebells and playing catch to work on his balance. Nathan was lifting 20 lb. on the cable machine and performing his strength training seated when he started working out.
Now he can lift 50 lb. and does a lot of his strength training standing up. Nathan notices that he can walk farther than before, that he has better balance, and that his limbs are stronger.
