Can you tell us your thoughts on the new location?
– I thought the new space is incredible. I love the lighting. I love the whole atmosphere. I love the class. I was just very, very impressed.
How was your first foundational fitness class here?
I thought the class was incredible because it worked every part of your body, but it was also very well observed and it felt very safe. So it was challenging and safe.
Would you say safety is a big concern for you?
It is ’cause I’ve hurt myself a lot in other kinds of classes and ’cause people weren’t paying attention and I didn’t know what I was doing. So the fact that someone is paying attention is really important to me.
How would you describe your experience today in one word?
I would say confidence building because, even though the moves were difficult, the instructor was so supportive and encouraging that I felt like I could do more than I thought I could at the beginning, so.
Can you tell us how you found Cornerstone Health?
Yeah so I remember I was playing with my son, it was in the summer, and I had a chronic neck injury and it would seize up and I would be completely immobilized and it was very painful and it was on a Sunday, I think, and I got Doctor Fergus’ name and I just called him on my cell and he listened to my symptoms and I think I saw him the next day and, to be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever had, I haven’t had that level of pain ever since and that was years ago. So I see, we come in, I see Doctor Sam and Doctor Fergus and it’s just a maintenance type of deal now, but it’s really made a big difference for me.
Can you tell us how working with Cornerstone Health has improved your quality of life?
Well, definitely less pain, a lot less pain. I would say I’m stronger and also more aware of how I use my body and space because Doctor Fergus talked to me a lot about alignment and posture and the correct way to do things. I definitely can lift more weight now which is big for me. I run better. I’m a long-time runner and I think I run more efficiently and safely. I know how to stretch afterwards. I know when to stop, which is good, and yeah I think those are the main areas.
What would you say to someone that maybe hesitant about coming to Cornerstone Health for treatment?
I would say that they are total professionals. They know what they’re doing. They’re extremely knowledgeable. They’re also very welcoming. They’re kind. They really care. They’re careful. Yeah, I think that’s about it.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
– Well, just that they’ve really become part of our family. Our older daughter comes here now. We’ve brought our son and our younger daughter as well when they had acute issues and they also received the same great level of care. So we are really family clients.
