“During my first time in Functional Strength Training I became emotional with relief and hope because I realized I could actually do it”. Laura F.
Laura has struggled with Fibromyalgia since working as a nurse and then later, in a stressful office job with a long commute. She was stiff, in pain, and depressed, and more recently had developed shoulder pain that severely impaired her daily movements. “I feared that I was going to descend into an out-of-shape blob”.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic medical condition that causes widespread pain throughout the body, along with other symptoms such as fatigue, sleep disturbances, and cognitive difficulties. It is believed to be caused by a malfunction in the way the body processes pain signals, leading to an increased sensitivity to pain and other stimuli.
Since finding Synergy Laura has experienced several benefits including improvement in strength, balance, and substantial reduction in her pain. Most notable is the improvement in her shoulder pain, debilitating before, but almost gone now.
“After I take Functional Strength Training I have no pain for the rest of the day, and I’m happier.” Laura is enthusiastic about continuing her classes at Synergy, which she finds welcoming and fun, in addition to being a source of improved fitness and health. “Jill takes time to evaluate what your individual needs are. She’s thoughtful, knowledgeable, and really cares.”
