From our clients …

My Experience with “LEAPS and BOUNDS”.

Several years ago I suffered from Sciatica. Last year I fell and sprained my lower back and right hip joint. The pain was very severe in my right hip and upper thigh. I did exercises which brought no pain relief but aggravated my symptoms. An x-ray showed severe degeneration of the hip joint. I am awaiting hip replacement surgery.

While I am waiting for surgery I have been doing special exercises with a trainer, Manuel, at Leaps and Bound. These have greatly strengthened my muscles, and this has resulted in a great decrease in pain. The doctors were amazed at the increase in my muscle tone and strength. My trainer has been careful not to aggravate the offending hip. I feel just great after the therapy.

With the very lengthy waiting time for hip surgery I would advise anyone not to sit and wait, but to take a course with a trainer at Leaps and Bounds so that at the time of surgery you will be much fitter and stronger for the operation, and the recovery will be better and quicker.

I confidently recommend the careful and skilled therapy of a trainer at Leaps and Bounds.
