Ten years ago PEC and Matt LeSage helped me get fit and strong. Then, I got sick. I continued to train with Matt, even on the hardest days because I always felt better when I was done and because I loved it. My chronic illness has been a really long, hard journey, a big part of which was staying strong so I could keep moving in spite of the pain. Matt is a part of my health care team. He’s provided advice and motivation, working with my PT & RMT so my physical therapy is consistent. His education and experience allowed him to tailor my workouts to the condition I was in when I walked in the door of PEC on any given day. In 2018 I finally resolved all but the biggest concern. On Tuesday I had a Total Knee Replacement. From the first time they got me up to walk, hours after surgery, I knew the time I’d spent working with Matt was totally worth it. The cold, early mornings, the sore muscles, the tears when all I wanted to do was stay in bed had prepared me for recovering from knee surgery. It’s Day 5 and I’ve been home since Thursday. I’ve already moved from using a walker to carrying a cane in my home just in case I need it. My legs and core are strong and provide stability and help me stand. My strong arms lift me up, move me around in bed and help me with the exercises. My flexibility lets me reach, twist and turn without injury. I know that physio is still going to hurt but I’m going to recover so much faster. I’m finally getting my life back and I couldn’t have done it without Matt and PEC. More...
