Dear Access Sports Medicine,
I was always in what I considered to be decent physical shape and tried to maintain an active lifestyle but as I’ve gotten older, my body has changed. I went to Access Sports Medicine late last year to address bilateral shoulder injuries that became worse over time and I completed a physical therapy regimen that included exercises at home and at the gym. My physical therapist provided me with a flyer for a free fitness consultation with Craig Favara at Access Acceleration in response to my desire to build off my PT work to get in better shape overall.
I met with Craig to assess my strengths and areas to work on. We began working together in individual training sessions that worked my entire body. Craig showed me how to use core strengthening exercises and how to work several muscle groups simultaneously, taught methods for exercising and using gym equipment properly and efficiently and developed “off day” workouts for me to use in my own gym and at home. He focused on simple lifestyle changes pertaining to diet and exercise that I easily incorporated into my daily routine. As a result, I started seeing gains immediately and continue to see gains each week. I feel great physically and mentally, I’ve lost 15 lbs. but have become stronger, my core has never been tighter (I have working abs!), I no longer have the nagging aches and pains that I once had, and people tell me how good I look. As an offshoot to our work and to challenge myself further, I began running for the first time in my life and have run some 5K’s and have worked with Craig to increase my running endurance and speed.
Craig Favara and Access Acceleration have provided me with the knowledge, direction, and support to realize my fitness and health goals. I am very grateful to Craig for his guidance and will continue to apply these principles in my daily life and would recommend him to anyone seeking to improve his/her physical and mental health.
