Movement for Life
Ian and Angie:
With yesterday being my “final” day, I want to thank you both for collaborating with me these many months in making a full recovery from left hip replacement surgery, October 2020.
When Movement for Life was first mentioned to me by a friend, I was in a very discouraged frame of mind; I thought I would not be able to regain the strength I wanted and needed to play tennis and golf and enjoy physical activity.
You changed all that.
It was not an easy course of action, but usually in life, anything worthwhile never is “easy.”
I will continue with the several exercises you both engrained in me – there is no question each workout leaves me in a much better frame of mind each day I accomplish the routine.
Thank you – most sincerely - for your work.
Kind regards –Dennis
