Fitness Together wants to welcome our 86 year old client Dave back from being out for nine months! Dave found out in April 2018 that he had colon and lung cancer. Since then he has had two major surgeries, chemo and radiation. After going through treatment and rehabilitation Dave is finally back home training with us. I speak for all the trainers and the clients when I say we are all thrilled to have him back in the studio. Take time to read Dave's testimony below.
I started going to Fitness Together approximately six years ago. My body ached in the joints from arthritis and I was overweight. I knew I had to do something about my balance and strength. In other words my overall health condition was not good.
I started six years ago, going three times a week to Fitness Together. I am now 86 years old and I am recovering from a colon cancer operation in April 2018 and a lung cancer operation in July 2019. I was able to return in January 2019. I was released from my home care physical therapist to Teris Espinosa to begin my workout once again at a recovery pace.
It is important for me to point out that the surgeons, and my oncologists said that they would not even consider operating if I were not in the condition that I was in. They called me a “young 85 year old” and gave me very strong dosages of radiation and chemotherapy, the same as they use on 40-year-old patients. Thanks to Teris and Fitness Together my body could not stand the necessary treatment and now I am doing fine.
MY MESSAGE IS COME TO FITNESS TOGETHER AT ANY AGE BECOME FIT TO ENJOY YOUR FUTURE.
