For many years now I have been attending Fitness League classes, originally at Silverdale and Whangaparoa, and for the past 11 years in Tauranga.
After a bad accident in 2002, I spent eight weeks in traction. With my good leg I was still able to do some of the floor exercises, eg raising the leg whilst flexing the foot. The teacher tried to get me to wiggle my toes at the same time, but that was beyond me.
In June this year, I had a total knee replacement, and I truly believe exercise again, especially the floor ones, have given me the strength to walk properly. There is still pain, but this will eventually subside, and then its back with the group again.
The camaraderie of the friendly ladies, who are all there for the same purpose, exercise, fun and friendship, is very special to me.
