“Lost a few pounds. Have more ambition. My penmanship has improved. Thank you for free opportunity to exercise. “ Mary Fisher Pocahontas, Iowa.
“I would like to make a few comments on Arlington Place. I came here as I was no longer able to live alone. That was 2 years ago. I had a bad back and had to use a walker. I was in a great deal of pain. I walked all bent over. Then I joined the Senior Fitness Class at Arlington Place, called “Live 2 B Healthy”. I give all the credit to my recovery to participating in this class 3 times a week. You only do what you are able to do. After a period of time I was able to stand up straight again, and I started to lose my back pain, all from just exercising. One of the first things I noticed was, I was able to reach over my shoulder to get my seat belt on. Little by little I could see improvement. Now I can walk without a walker or cane or assistance, what so ever. I credit all my improvement to my stay here at Arlington Place and their exercise program. I praise my Lord and Savior for my full recovery. I’m 94 and still wanting to go to my next home in heaven.” Jerry Johnson
“I have been attending the exercise class for over a year. I really feel they are very beneficial. My joints are so much freer, so much easier for bending, stooping, reaching things that I do every day at home. And without pains! My balance is improving. And I get feeling better after the work out. Also, I enjoy the group. And we have a great trainer teaching the class.” Shirley Harrold
