Was there a frustrating problem that inspired you to get in touch with NSS?
In 2009 I had an accident, in which I injured my hips. In 2013, I had the first hip replacement and in 2017 the second hip replacement. During those years, I tried my best not to injure myself more, so that meant not doing the things I loved: biking, walking, x-country skiing, hiking or often times, even moving. In those years, as you can imagine, the pounds came on and I found myself getting weaker, something I was definitely not used to.
My daughter had given me a gift certificate in July to go and try out NSS. I have loved the people, their commitment to helping you be the best you can be and the gentle nudges along the way, when you might think you can’t do something. I took a running fall in August, and my coach modified my workout so that I wouldn’t have pain, and we worked through that problem. Everyone at NSS is so friendly and dedicated to making your workouts fun and beneficial.
What led you to believe NSS may be the optimal gym for you?
I think you can tell when you walk in and see all the smiling faces and conversations, that NSS is more like family that most gyms.
I was very dubious at first and thought...I’ll give it 3 months, and quit if I don’t like it. Ha, I was hooked from day one, I feel like this is home now!!
What is keeping you at NSS?
The fact that I feel great, not only physically but mentally as well. It’s been so long since I did something positive about my long term health and it’s addictive!
How has your life improved as a result of the time you’ve spent with us?
