It is our pleasure to recognize Helen deLisser as the CV Fitness Member of the Month for February 2019. She has been a member for three years.
Helen is a Chiropractor with her own practice in San Leandro. She was referred to CVF by neighbors. She joined with the goal of improving her core strength and also needed the commitment of a workout schedule that had some flexibility. She was experiencing some knee issues at the start and wanted to stabilize her knee to improve her ability to walk and run. She regularly walks her dog in areas with uneven sidewalks and wanted to protect her knee and reduce the chance of falling. She also doesn’t want to lose the ability to run with her dog.
CVF has helped Helen find a balance between being available to her clients and time for her workouts. She always has a smile on her face and a great sense of humor. She finds the most improvement is in her strength – not only can she lift more, she can lift things more easily and straighter. She feels her overall movement is better and more stable.
Her advice to the CVF community is to still watch your diet even if you are coming into the gym two to three times a week. Also, be committed – just come in when you are scheduled regardless of how you are feeling. You will always feel better after.
