Pattie's Journey Towards More Strength.
When Pattie first met David she gave him an ultimatum. She told him that he had ONE WEEK to improve her strength and walking abilities. She had worked before with trainers claiming to help her MS Symptoms, but she never got results! After one week of training with David - Pattie felt results and gave him another week and another week and another week.
"The difference with David compared to anything I've ever done with any trainers is that I'M GETTING RESULTS. It's a miracle the things that have happened to me. I can lay down in bed and lift up my legs and bend it. That never happened before. Now that I have strength and tone in my leg I can actually bend my leg! I can now even pick up my feet when I walk across my living room - and it's all from working out with David." - Pattie
