When I came to Lisa at Koru Fitness about a year I ago I was in very poor shape following two difficult surgeries and progressive neuropathy in both feet. I had been away from any exercise program for a long time. The worst of it was that not only had I lost physical strength and agility, but I had lost confidence in myself. Lisa agreed to meet with me individually because I was too uncomfortable to enter a class.Those first few sessions began to change my life. Lisa was so positive and kind as well as supportive, patient and careful with all of my aches and pains and worries about getting hurt again. She carefully showed me how to try ways of doing things at my own comfort level and helped me begin to have confidence that I could become fully functioning again! Very soon I was feeling so much stronger and more sure of myself that I was ready to join a class. This is when the fun began, with all of the laughter, support and collective groaning we share in our classes. Lisa continues to monitor me, as she does all of the class members, to make sure that we are exercising safely and with good form. Today, I have progressed so much in gaining both strength and skill that I feel like a totally different person!
