My name is Kathleen S. I was a passenger in a car accident 6/22/12. I had a burst fracture of my T12/L1 vertebrae; paralyzed complete from the waist down. For the first 12 weeks I wore a brace around my body and there just wasn’t much I was able to do but surf the internet and research. Through some research but MUCH MORE word of mouth I was thrilled to hear about the CNR facility and program. When I called for information, the administration answered the call. As I explained my new circumstances, they listened and comforted me. They explained a lot about the comprehensive program over the phone conversation. It sounded great, so I soon scheduled a visit to meet the administration and staff. During my visit there were clients working out. When I saw how much strength, effort, and dedication and the seriousness they were giving; I had tears in my eyes.
The CNR team made no promises as far as being able to walk but they promised that they would get the most out of what I had left. They put a strength training plan together for me that started showing results in the first week!! The trainers are not here to baby you but rather push you to your limit. When I could do 75 push-ups, my trainer added a 15lb weight vest, and that’s when I see major advances in my abilities and strength. These results are huge, and very exciting!
None of this would have happened for me if it weren’t for the dedicated and professional trainers (Carlo, Eric, Jim & Kris) and my commitment to give 100%. I love them all and they have become a second family, my home away from home!
