"My initial goal was to get stronger. Because of all my surgeries, I had lost the ability to run and move with intensity in the other sports that I played.
I was desperate to find a new way of moving. I am ecstatic that I can move with some new confidence and stability.
The extent of increase in my overall strength, stability, and range of motion has been a surprise, as well as, the specific increase in strength and stability of my hip including hip rotators, flexors and the quadriceps of my left leg"
