Exercise After Injury

A Testimonial from One of Our Members:

A devastating back injury literally changed my life overnight. Despite surgery, I had constant lower back and sciatic pain. For three years, I engaged in numerous therapies which offered minimal or temporary relief. I gained weight and lost muscle. I gave up on exercising for fear of re-injury. I felt tired, weak, frustrated and hopeless.

Then a friend told me about “a different type of gym”. I was doubtful, but I took the first step by just trying a free class at Artemis. I had nothing to lose. I immediately noticed that people were truly happy to be here! The atmosphere is personal, encouraging, cheerful and fun. Every trainer knows every member, and the members each other. The trainers are knowledgeable and determined problem-solvers who are invested in your individual success. Your goals and progress are clearly important to them. They create a safe but challenging workout that is tailored to your needs and modified for your injuries.

And it works. In just six months, Artemis gave me my life back. With each personal training session, I saw measurable progress I never thought possible given my chronic condition. It has greatly increased my mobility, strength, balance, and muscle definition, as well as my energy level and my mood. It is hard work, and at times there have been minor setbacks. But the trainers here will not give up on you. More importantly, they will not let you give up on yourself.

Every new journey begins with simple, single step. I am grateful that I chose to start mine with Artemis.
