After a long selection process and countless deserving clients we came to the conclusion that our very first Client of the Month is Lee Kuehl.
Lee’s background story has a couple chapters and all of which deserve to be shared to fully grasp how proud we are of his accomplishments. In 2002 while at work, Lee was involved in an industrial accident when a truck fell off a lift and landed on him. From this accident his L2 & L3 vertebrae were broken, suffered a spinal injury, and became paralyzed from the knee down. He was wheelchair bound for 6 months, couldn’t walk, and eventually had his lower leg amputated.
In January of 2014, Lee began training at Pro Fitness with Omarr after a recommendation from his prosthetist, Brent Watzka C.P, who heard of us from a fellow client Mike Pierce. Initially Lee had the intentions of taking the next step with his physical therapy by beginning a fitness program with us. After just his first few workouts Lee loved the challenge presented to him by Omarr and his workouts and ceased scheduling therapy. Since then Lee has lost 25lbs, improved his total body strength, and dramatically increased his cardiovascular endurance. But most of all he has regained the ability to enjoy camping with friends and family, hiking, and biking.
Going forward Lee is proud, but still has a lot of goals to be checked off his list! Working with Omarr he plans to continue strengthening his left leg with the ultimate goal to one day be able to run.
