4 Answers | Asked by Marta Gabrielli on Sep 13, 2016

Answered by Nancy Korf on Sep 14, 2016

new client cleared for activity, but on multiple heart diabetes meds. Were taking"baby steps" creative ideas for outdoor track?

8 Answers | Asked by Laura Partridge on Jul 18, 2016

Answered by Nancy Korf on Jul 25, 2016

You've received some very good suggestions so far. Do you have to use a track? My thought would be that perhaps you can find a good walking path in a nice park or forest, paved but with plenty of greenery and fresh air. Especially if there is one with little hills and valleys. Since she is liv...

9 Answers | Asked by adam beattie on Jul 14, 2016

Answered by Nancy Korf on Jul 14, 2016
