RF: What positive results have you had from working with RF?
Nancy: I’m in good shape for a person my age; I’m 73. RF prepared me for my knee replacement surgery then helped rehabilitate me afterwards. I think my other knee does not need surgery because of all we do here. My balance has also improved greatly and RF does a great job of modifying exercises within my ability each workout.
RF: What keeps you motivated:
Nancy: The variety RF provides for Bob and I. I like coming here and I’m not a person that likes exercising. I don’t do it on my own. You and Nicole do a great job engaging me!
RF: What is the biggest challenge you’ve overcome?
Nancy: My knee replacement surgery. I can now kneel and garden! I’d like to try and play tennis this summer. Bob also loves tennis.
RF: We’re going to hold you to that!
RF: What does health mean to you?
Nancy: Health is terribly important at my age. It means I can travel. It means I can do all I want to do. Health means maintaining good body function.

Nancy: Spinach omelet with a little sprinkle of cheddar cheese.
RF: What’s your favorite type of workout music?
