The Exercise Coach

Carolyn Z. – Arlington Heights

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.
