Hi.  My name is Sherry and this is my story.

I’ve worked out in one form or another and have watched what I’ve eaten since my early 20s.  In 2016, I had a mishap on my bicycle and broke my femur.  I was told at that point that I had osteoporosis and a bone specialist wanted me to start taking a certain medication.  I researched the side effects of the medication (which scared the hell out of me) and said no thank you.  There had to be another option.

A friend of mine, Mike, was training at Pro Fitness and asked me to go to a customer appreciation gathering to check out the facility.  When I found out there was food and wine involved, I said of course I’d go!  Mike introduced me to Doug, I set up an appointment with him to discuss my situation, and that is how my journey at Pro Fitness began.

After one year training with Doug I had another bone density test which showed improvements in some areas and no worsening in others. I was ecstatic!  I still train with Doug once a week since he keeps me motivated.  I also try to train on my own at the gym twice a week.

In January, I was told I needed a total reverse shoulder replacement due to wear and tear.  Doug worked with me until my surgery to strengthen certain muscles that would help with recovery.  I just had my six week evaluation and the surgeon and physical therapists said I’m doing great.  I owe it all of Doug and Pro Fitness!  Mike, too.
