At the age of 23, I was diagnosed with POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome). This diagnosis typically means that any form of physical exercise would prompt dizziness and the occasional fainting. Whenever I stood up too fast or got out of bed, I’d get lightheaded and dizzy. As a very active, young individual, not being able to hike, play sports with friends, or make simple positional changes made life very frustrating. Most importantly, for my dream career, I needed to get SCUBA certified, but was unable to do so with my condition.
My doctor recommended that I seek out someone to help me with consistent and graduated physical activity to strengthen my cardiovascular system. That’s how I came across Dennis.
Dennis does a great job creating a plan to help me progress with my physical activity. He is exceedingly thorough and thoughtful when it comes to my specialized training plans. We went from simple exercises on the ground to standing and jumping!
I’ve been working with Dennis for roughly one year now and, WOW, what a difference it has made. Dizzy spells and lightheadedness are now infrequent and I’ve been able to get back into rock climbing, riding my bike, moderate hiking, and getting out of bed in the morning. Plus, I am so close to being cleared for SCUBA diving! I could never have gotten to this point without Dennis.
I am so grateful for Dennis and his dedication to helping me get back to the active lifestyle I once had lived and working towards my dream job.
Thank you, Dennis!!!
