From a senior client:

I am 97 and have been working out with Derick for over a year now. When we started I was so depressed that living seemed unbearable. Within a short period of time I began to feel stronger and started doing things that I couldn’t do before. I couldn’t take a shower for fear of falling down. This was the first thing I accomplished that gave me hope. I had stopped walking up the hill where I live and stopped sitting on certain chairs because they were too hard to get up from. Now I walk up the hill and sit wherever I want. I even do 60 crunches at the end of the workout and can get up from the ground by myself. Derick makes me do exercises during the workout that sometimes I just don’t want to do. I try to talk him out of it, but he has a way of making me do it anyway. I have tried with other people but it just didn’t work out. It’s only Derick’s spirit and enthusiasm that the turns something as boring as exercise into something I look forward to.
