Found a way to exercise without all the pain I had experienced in the past.
July 10, 2007Hi Lloyd:I have worked out daily for over 40 years; it has become a mainstay in my life. As a result of old injuries and a very active physical life, I developed foot drop in my left foot. I went through a Chiropractor, rehab, plus my own program and got back 100% capabilities in my foot.It was during this period that I could no longer run or walk because of the negative effect of the impact. I needed to find a way to exercise without all the pain.My wife had bought a Freestyle Elite Gazelle and loved using it. I reluctantly tried it and was amazed at what a good, pain free workout I could get. I continue to work out daily and still use the Gazelle 4 or 5 days a week. It is an integral part of my workout program.My main reason for working out is that I can create the energy that I need to live the active life style that I enjoy. If I do not exercise, the pain is disabling and my energy level is close to depression. The Gazelle is the only machine that has worked for me. It’s that good.I am 60 years young and although I don’t participate in quite the same activities I did at say 30 years ago, I still enjoy engaging in a lot of physical activities with the same intensity and passion.My idea is simple. I am a Baby Boomer. You know what size of market we are today. Your low impact Gazelle machine allows us to stay in shape and do the physical activities we enjoy and still decrease the pain that is a part of our daily lives.Sincerely, Garry - Pennsylvania
