Due to covid, l was unable to access my senior centre. So, in June 2020, I started virtual strength and cardio twice a week with Andrea. I needed to keep my diabetes in check, my blood pressure down, and lot let my joint pains get the better of me.
We started slow with chair exercises. As my balance and confidence improved, I was able to do it standing.
I now do squats without hurting my knees. Andrea watches and makes correction to my form so l'm not afraid of hurting myself.
Previously, I had had difficulties climbing downstairs and opening bottles. I now have strength in both my legs and hands to do these things easily for myself. My wrist recovered well after an injury I had had.
Andrea is a great motivator, human being and has a good sense of humour. She makes exercise fun and l look forward to her exercise sessions because l feel great afterwards and enjoy working out to her music.
Andrea wants everyone to work to their comfort level and always offers different options, and listens carefully to me.
I have more energy now and my health is much better. 2 years later, and I am now exercising with Andrea 4x/week, which I would have not thought possible.

I AM A SENIOR WITH DISABILITY PROBLEMS. I'VE HAD A STROKE, USE A WHEELCHAIR AND TAKE DIALYSIS.
IN 2018, I WAS IN NEED OF A THERAPIST WHO COULD HELP ME WITH MY MOBILITY AND BALANCE PROBLEMS. ANDREA BECAME MY POST-REHAB TRAINER, AND I WAS HAPPY TO HAVE MET HER. SHE HAS A GREAT WORKING KNOWLEDGE OF SENIOR REQUIREMENTS AND HELPED ME WITH MY DISABILITY.
WORKING WITH HER AND HER TEAM GAVE ME CONFIDENCE AND ABILITY TO OVERCOME MY PROBLEMS. THE DIFFERENT EXERCISES HELPED A LOT. I NOW DO HER PROGRAM TWICE WEEKLY AND IN-BETWEEN SHE SHOWS ME EXERCISES I CAN DO ON MY OWN. I DO ALL MY EXERCISES ON A CHAIR.
WHEN THE PANDEMIC ARRIVED, ANDREA WAS A LIFE-SAVER!
ANDREA HAS KEPT ME MOTIVATED, HELPING TO KEEP MY HEALTH AND KEEP A POSITIVE ATTITUDE, FOR 4 YEARS NOW.
AS A RESULT OF EXERCISE, I HAVE MANAGED TO COME OFF 9 OF MY 14 MEDICATIONS (with Doctor supervision) AS MY HEALTH IMPROVED.
IF I HAD NOT MET ANDREA, I DO NOT KNOW WHERE I'D BE WITH MY DISABILITY.
