“I believe that my problems started when I was born with hip dysplasia, I was not diagnosed or treated. Over the years I saw various health professionals seeking help with the common reply being ‘you’re too young for a hip replacement.’ After two diabolical hip replacements, I had to overcome what I had been led to believe in that I could not bend, walk properly, garden or mind my grandchildren without assistance. I had decided that I needed to get moving.

While taking a family member to a health professional I asked for advice on my falling over and was advised to see Grant at BSERC, so I did. I hobbled in to see him and started with exercises to improve my balance, the first step was to work up to 1 minute standing on one leg on a cushion.

The next step was the BSERC gym to gain strength. I not only gained strength but also gained confidence which was much needed after having both hips replaced some years earlier and having broken both ankles. I needed lots of assistance, especially with my mindset. I needed to overcome what I had been led to believe to be true ‘that I couldn’t do it.’ I needed to change my mind set and believe that I could become strong.

And strong is what I became even with a couple of health set backs. All thanks to the BSERC team for their support, fun times in the gym and expertise.”
