For 10 years I lead the joint replacement classes for people with arthritis preparing for and recovering from knee and hip replacement surgery. From the experience I gained through the years, I designed a full day workshop and manual for personal trainers on how to design training programs for clients pre and post hip or knee operation. Realizing that there was a demand for this knowledge for clients as well in all areas of the world, I went to work on creating 2 ebooks on hip and knee replacement exercises.
