My experience with The Exercise Coach has been nothing but positive! Ten years ago at age 44, I was diagnosed with severe osteoporosis. My doctor recommended weight bearing exercise to promote my bone density. I have increased my bone density, feel stronger doing my daily activities and know this program works. After undergoing multiple surgeries from a serious car accident, returning to The Exercise Coach after recovery has helped to improve my strength and get back on my fee again. Being a flight attendant for a major airline is a very physical job. Thanks to The Exercise Coach, I have always been able to do my demanding job. Many thanks to all the professional staff, their expertise and knowledge! The Exercise Coach is a must for anyone wanting to be their personal best.

After one year of consistent adherence to The Exercise Coach Program, I have not only halted my bone loss but reversed it. From my 2007 DEXA analysis I learned that the bone density in my spine went up 3% and my hip increased by 4% as well!

When I first started out with The Exercise Coach I had very little muscle strength. I was of no help when it came to carrying even slightly heavy loads. I wanted to go to a place where I could work out with the help of someone with knowledge of my health issues (RA, osteoporosis, MS). I have confidence that they will not allow me to hurt myself in any way. I can tell I am getting stronger and my husband notices too! The first time I went to Mt. Rushmore, before The Exercise Coach, I needed help just getting around. Last year, I went back and I had no problem at all getting around!

I previously worked with a trainer at a hospital based fitness center and actually saw a decline in my bone density. After 6 months at The Exercise Coach, my next bone scan indicated over a 7% increase in my spinal bone density. This density change is due specifically to The Exercise Coach, as there were no other changes during that time. My doctor and I are thrilled with my progress, and with my increased strength and fitness.

I had my first bone density scan at age 50 and the results were both surprising and scary. I was experiencing significant losses in bone strength! I’m not a big fan of medications so when I heard that The Exercise Coach had helped many people like me, I decided to give them a try. The results have been truly amazing! Sixteen months after my first DEXA scan I went in for a follow up. Not only did my bone loss stop, it actually increased significantly!

I first learned about the exercise coach from my gynecologist, who is also a client. Since I was diagnosed with Osteopenia (moderate bone density loss) she had encouraged me to try their OsteoHope program. After putting it off for a year and seeing my bone density numbers get worse, I decided to try it. However, I was also struggling with the pain of a bone spur in one shoulder. I had seen a surgeon who gave me several shots of cortisone over the course of 8 months, and sent me off to physical therapy with a chiropractor that I have used successfully for several other ailments, and I completely trust. The result was that I should have surgery to eliminate the bone spur. I did not have the time for that, thankfully. When I started my program at The Exercise Coach, I mentioned the shoulder issue to my personal trainer, Aleksa. She designed a program that not only increased my bone density, which was the original goal, but also strengthened my shoulder so that I no longer have any pain! Not only that, but I am stronger than ever, and feel I am in the best shape of my life. I have always been someone who joins a health club, only to fail to show up because I have no one to work out with. This has solved that problem, because I have a trainer who cares about my progress and really knows how to motivate me to complete each exercise to get the maximum potential out of it. She is also a pleasure to work with and has a great sense of humor, which makes the workouts enjoyable.
