Meet Marianne, coach of the Vitality Program. She's had an amazing life change from working out here (like less arthritis pain, improved movement and core strength) and is excited to help and lead others to rediscover their own abilities.
As the saying goes "if you don't use it, you lose it" and that applies to daily life abilities like sitting down and standing up, picking up the laundry basket and getting up off the floor.
