In 2012 I fractured my spine and was diagnosed with osteoporosis in my spine and hips. I was a bit shocked at getting it quite so early, so decided I had to do something about it.
I was started on medication and once my fracture had healed, I signed up to Iso Barre, initially attending one class a week. I really struggled, but within a few weeks I could see a difference in my body shape, so persevered, gradually improving my technique.
I had another bone density scan three years later and a significant improvement was recorded. This spurred me on and I started attending a couple of classes a week. There are still some moves I can’t do, but the instructors are patient and encouraging, providing alternatives for moves I can’t do.
I had a further scan earlier this year and was deemed to be within 5% range of my age group with a low fracture risk and was able to come off the medication.
Obviously, I made other lifestyle changes, I cycle and walk as much as I can, and eat sensibly. However, I truly believe that the results have come from Iso Barre.
