    Hartmut Broring, Back In Form has worked as personal trainer and instructor for various fitness classes i.e., Pilates, Aqua Fitness, Senior Exercise Programs for Villages Golf and Country Club residents (senior community) for over seven years. Both Hartmut and his company are highly respected by staff and residents alike.

    Hartmut goes that extra mile with the seniors here and hopefully will continue for years to come. Hartmut is extremely skilled in the personal fitness field and continues to come up with new and exciting fitness programs for our residents here.

    On a personal note Hartmut worked with my sister after her coming home from the hospital following massive stroke and numerous other health issues. My sister had severe circulation problems and with Hartmut’s help she has been able to do things with her hand and leg on her left side that we thought she would never have use of again.

    Sincerely,

    Hartmut Broring has served as my exercise therapist from [my] age of 84 to the present when I am 94. I was first attracted to his work and still am to this day by the depth and extent of his knowledge of the causes and treatments of physical ailments. I have marveled that in all these years I have never plumbed the full depths of his techniques which he can and does vary continuously to meet the immediate needs. I cannot close these comments without mentioning with pleasure his warm personality and his friendly concern.
