I was diagnosed with Endometriosis at 17, had it managed for a few years but once I started OT school I was having more pain and couldn’t run or workout like I used to.
I went back to the doctor and was diagnosed with pelvic congestion, interstitial cystitis, IBS, and ovarian cysts within a 6-9 month period (age 22). -
One year ago I was referred to physical therapy where I was told that my once strong and capable body was now too weak to safely participate in the sports I once enjoyed. After a few months of physical therapy I was cleared to work out but was fearful to get back into it for fear of hurting myself, or that I wouldn’t be able to lift or compete like I once did.
Fast forward to January. I decided to take control of my own progress and get back into the strength training I used to love.
Now, it’s May, and I’m able to lift more weight than I thought possible, I don’t have constant pain, I’ve cut back on some of my medication doses, and I’m feeling my body get stronger and healthier again.
SST is the best investment I’ve made.
It’s been an encouraging process to see myself getting stronger despite a few flare ups. I feel 100% better than I did a year ago and I’m eager to see how much further this program will help me go.
Note: I tried two other strength training gyms before coming to SST and the trainers there did not work with me or help me modify my workouts to my current abilities or during flares the way the SST trainers have. I’ve only missed two classes due to flares because Nate and the other trainers help me adapt the exercises so I can still workout when I’m in pain or having another flare up.
