Did you ever watch someone do the moon walk and think, ‘gosh that looks so easy!’ Then you try it and your feet look like slugs stuck to the ground? Yea, that’s what I thought when I watched people run on treadmills but instead of having slugs as feet I ran like I had a large black bear on my back!
Growing up, I LOVED being active! If you wanted to go outside and run around I would do that just because I loved the feeling of sweating and being outside! When I injured my back that changed drastically as I couldn’t even run on a treadmill anymore…
Like I mentioned in my earlier post, I found the AlterG at Martin Physical Therapy and it truly changed my life!
This past week I was running on the AlterG and had ran a 5K before I even knew it! It’s not a chore anymore to work out because I am not in pain! Before, I would dread going to the gym and honestly I’d only stay for 30 minutes and just walk on the treadmill because I didn’t want to be bed ridden the rest of the week! Now I run / walk AT LEAST a 5K each and every time I am on the AlterG!
I can’t express this enough, if you are in pain when you run or walk then come into Martin Physical Therapy and just TRY the AlterG! I could not be happier with my decision to use the AlterG and I know it could change so many more lives if people just tried!
With its ability to eliminate up to 80 percent of your body weight; you have no pressure on your lower body. That pressure that people normally feel while walking or running is instantly taken away and you are able to focus on your physical therapy, weight loss or your recovery run! So instead of moon walking (or at least trying to moon walk) you’ll be as close as you can possibly be to walking on the moon without leaving earth!
