BUILDING STRENGTH TOGETHER
Sue recently celebrated her 70th birthday around the time that she was scheduled for her annual physical with her family doctor. During her physical exam, she received her results from a recent DEXA bone density scan in which her doctor explained that she had a 3.2% increase in the density of the lumbar spine. Upon learning that this was statistically significant progress, Sue was very excited and pleased since she had experienced many years of lower back issues in the past. Sue and her doctor both credit her improvements to her participation in the exercise programs at the Y. “I just want to thank the Indian Valley Family YMCA for offering such a wonderful variety of classes and opportunities to improve my health and fitness,” she stated. “I have met so many people through the classes and even though I may not know all the individual names, I still feel supported and accepted. It is all of the people as well as the instructors who keep me active and faithful in coming back each week!”
