Client Spotlight: Barbara

barbaraBarbara Roche Fierman is living proof that everyone can (and should) exercise, regardless of injuries, their age, or any of the other excuses that people tend to come up with.

Barbara’s list of injuries includes a fused ankle, a cyst in her lower back, and a torn rotator cuff.

She’s also 72 years old!

But in spite of all that, I meet with Barbara 3 times a week and she gives it her best effort.

Regular exercise helps her to continue working full time as the CEO of New York’s Little Elves, NYC’s #1 cleaning service, and do all the things New Yorkers need to do to get around.

Take a look at this video from one of our recent strength training workouts:

    I would like to meet Barbara – as she does I exercise regularly, I enjoy going to the gym for treadmill, weight bearing , stretching while following a TV morning show on my iPod. The 45 minutes I spent over there are enough to make me feel good for the rest of the day.
    In this meantime i say hi! to Barbara just in case she reads this post!

    Barbara is a very¬† cool woman! I know her from Sayulita, Mexico where I live and she visits quite often. The video didn’t mention that her injuries were sustained in an airplane crash…….she is a survivor in many aspects.
