KateT-weight-loss

Kate Thesing.  Orthopedic surgeons could not help her.

Many things can happen unexpectedly due to letting other responsibilities weigh one down and take over. Something that you think would never happen to you…but when not paying full attention…it can happen….putting on too many pounds while focusing on everyone and everything else, but yourself as time moves on.

Unfortunately, I let that happen to me from 2005 until 2013. I put on too many pounds while taking care of my elderly parents 24/7 and along with my two little children at the time. Thus, becoming overweight and out of shape then, I wasn’t the same, healthy Kate anymore. I got injured snow skiing too as a result of the weight gain and being out of shape. That more than likely happened because of all the extra weight and lack of strength.  Click to read more.

Dick Thomas.  Started exercising at 91 years old!

Farah Robinson.  Fighting Scoliosis and more.

I was officially diagnosed with Scoliosis at age 16. I adjusted to the imbalances of my body and remained physically active. My lifelong back troubles did not end there.  I was diagnosed with Spondylolisthesis at age 25, a condition when one vertebra in your spine slides forward and out of place.  This impacted my daily activities by requiring frequent rest breaks due to pain.  Read more…

Warren and Gretchen Hensel.  Maximizing quality of life.

It’s hard to believe that we are beginning our sixth year training at Sensible Fitness.  As we began to get older, we often talked about really needing to get serious about exercising…and then a few weeks later, we would have the same conversation again.  I discovered Doug’s Sensible Fitness program on TV and was impressed with his knowledge….Read more…

85 years young!  At 85, Betty decided to try zip-lining and loved it.  After going once, she exclaimed “That was fun!  Can we do it again?”, and of course she zipped a second time. The employees said they had never seen someone her age go zipping before and offered a few extra free passes for…

If I had to pick one person to represent the success of Sensible Fitness, it would be Jeremy Hedman. Hands down. Nobody else comes close.

Sensible Fitness, in conjunction with my wife, changed my life.  My wife gave me 10 sessions at Sensible Fitness.  She knew that I needed to be healthier and more active, but that I was intimidated by the large, glossy gyms featured on TV ads with strong-looking men and women working out.  So she did some…
