"It's a helpful program. Working on strength and stamina are very useful in real life."

Barb Shares Her Experience

"The program is awesome. It is very beneficial. I like how it is geared to my needs. It is nice that the room is for other people with challenges. I like that we get to be with other people. learn from others, talk with others. It is a wonderful program with qualified staff. The program has opened me up and connected me with all these other community programs. We're learning so much about my disease and what I should do. It is amazing to see results."

Neuro Fit is designated as a Heart Wise exercise program.
