The owners/instructors (Brenda and Stephanie) are not just great instructors but they are gracious with sharing their wealth of knowledge about everything from nutrition to the skeletal system.

Bill’s Tale of Two Knees

Long Struggle with Knee Problems I have had knee problems almost all of my adult life. I think I was seventeen when I first injured my right knee playing soccer. After six weeks of non activity I went back to playing and probably made it much worse. I think the first injury was a slight […]
