Why I choose the J

Why I Choose the J - feature story

Ken Freedman joined the JCC in June 2013. A couple of weeks ago he came to Alexis (Membership Director), sat in a a chair and then stood up - no assistance needed. He said he couldn't do that before he started working out here. He was so happy!

"Prior to joining the JCC I had great difficulty on a physical level... I had trouble walking and moving in general.
I had a program set up for me in the fitness centre.
I am now able to stand straight up from a chair holding on to 10 lb weights.
I have improved muscle tone and leg strength. I highly recommend the JCC for any of your physical problems. "
