Getting Back on Track After ACL Surgery

That class had such a positive affect on me  I  kept going.  For the next nine weeks, I continued going to Wright Training and PT twice a week.  The first handful of classes I went to, I did my own workout.  Crystal programmed specifically for me and I would do it while she coached class.  This was great because I was motivated by the other athletes. It was a great source of energy.  After a few weeks,  I started doing the regular class programing.  It was a big milestone in my recovery;  I had gone from laying on the couch with an ice machine to strength training classes at Wright Training! I saw real progress in my body.  My blood was flowing and my appetite was back.  I  felt more normal everyday, both physically and mentally.
