But she was weak. After falling four times in 2019, she decided to get stronger.
Since starting at the gym, she hasn't had a single fall:
"In 2020, I didn't fall. Not once. And a few of the falls in 2019, I was bruised badly. Hit my head on my own oven. It's nice not to fall now. When I teeter I catch myself and I have the strength to catch myself. I don't fall down!"
"I don't have that constantly going through my head: 'watch where you step, be careful."
After training for strength for six months.
"My A1C was over 14 and my glucose was at 296. They were going to put me on medication and I wanted to do everything I could to not go on medication."
"I had a consult with my doctor and he recommended that I do some strength training. He recommended Starting Strength and I left my appointment and came right here."
"After about 3 months I had dropped that down to 7.5 on the A1C and just over 190 on the glucose. As of last week, my A1C was down to 6.2. The doctor came in and said we're not even going to talk about medication."
Her doctor suggested medication or strength training - she chose strength training.
"I just went for my follow-up bone density test two-weeks ago... The bone density in my spine has improved 7% since last year. I've also moved out of the osteoporosis range back into osteopenia."
"Since Starting Strength, I don't have back problems at all, it makes such a difference to have stronger back muscles."
"It's challenging, but within my capability."
He's more than doubled his strength.
