Two years ago when I found out I would need a hip replacement I knew I needed to get back in shape before the surgery. Didn't figure I could do it on my own so between my Doc and Sara I started working out under Sara's direction. Six months later I was not only back in shape, I also was back down to my High School weight. The bonus was that after surgery I went straight home and needed NO physical therapy. My Doc contributed that to my working out ahead of time. I continue to work with Sara to maintain my physical wellness. With arthritis it's important to be active and Sara helps keep me motivated and doing the appropriate activities. - Kathy Hopkins, Clarinda, Iowa
