Don came to me almost 2 years ago on a walker. He has under gone 2 back surgeries as well as a staff infection in his spine. After he was released by his doctors to begin exercising, he immediately came to Core to start taking back his ability to move. Don has never complained, he always comes in with a positive attitude and is always ready to work. The world need more Don Brooks in it. I am so thrilled to see how far he has come! No walker and many laps around the gym is enough to keep us all inspired.
Tell Us A Bit About Yourself Married, 75 years young, 4 children ages 21 to 50, 4 grandchildren. Self-employed commercial real estate broker and investor. I chose CorePhysique because 2 years ago I thought I had a muscle problem that Kolleen Riddick, an expert in trigger point therapy, could solve. Instead, Kolleen said she couldn’t help me because it was nerve-related. Turns out I had a staph infection on my spine. That led to spinal fusion surgery. I started physical rehab with CorePhysique 9 months ago and now I’m the fittest 75 year old in Atlanta!
