TESTIMONIALS - DAVID

   

"The intensity of the workouts and the unique movements have truly reshaped my lower spine - to the point where I can get out of bed without taking Advil and can play golf without pain." David, 50

I was a lifelong runner and then morphed into competing in multiple iron distance triathlons. While my cardio system was strong, I suffered from chronic back problems due to disc degeneration in my lower spine. The pounding of multi-hour training sessions worsened my symptoms over the years – after turning 50, I knew I needed to pay attention to developing my core strength. So about two years ago, I began attending Fusion on a regular basis (usually five times a week) – my goals were to improve my core strength, flexibility and balance. The first month was tough, but over time I developed better core strength and really enjoyed the challenge of all of the different types of classes – even the barre class!

Being the solo guy in the 5:30 am class is awkward at times, but I’ve learned to chuckle when the teachers remind everyone that their back muscles will look great in a strapless dress and that bikini season is only weeks away. The intensity of the workouts and unique movements have truly reshaped by lower spine – to the point where I can get out of bed without taking advil and can play golf without pain.

Fusion is truly a family affair for us –  my wife (Lisa), daughter (Sophie) and niece (Lauren) are all regulars at Fusion as well. Most importantly, all of the instructors have been great role models and mentors for Sophie and have taught her the importance of exercising to be healthy and developing a healthy body image.
