MS Gym

Post by 81Charger » 1 month ago

Hi all, I came across MS Gym with Trevor Wicken. I'm just curious if any others are doing this & if so how has it been.

Thanks Glenn

never heard of it but may well check it out. need to figure out how to help a friend get more active, and my own situation is not what you'd call optimal. (did lots of pacing and misc strengthening stuff this morning though, while hanging around a dealership for a couple hrs).
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!

I'm going to give it a try, I don't feel very good and feel like I'm getting worse all the time. So I feel it's worth a shot and my hope is if I spend money to join that I will actually do it.

ah ha, money is a dealbreaker unfortunately - for me anyway. i already know that only the buddy system really works in my case!

He does have lots of free videos on facebook and youtube to look at and a lot of his exercise's seem to make sense.

"I don't feel very good and feel like I'm getting worse all the time"

Exercise is very important, as are other factors such as diet/nutrition and lifestyle. These additional factors should not be ignored especially if you are not doing well. Ultimately all these work hand in hand.

Hi,
I really love what Trevor Wicken is doing with the MS Gym! He looks to have the credentials behind him too:-D

About 6 weeks ago, a friend was wearing an MS WALK sweatshirt, and someone came up to her and told her about Trevor Wicken and the MS Gym. I looked it up and was pleasantly surprised. It's totally set up to do at home. He has a lot of great info being offered. Seriously, everyone should take a look. I was going to post something about the MS Gym when I came across this one. I'm glad someone is doing this for us. His wife has MS too.

There are free videos.
