You have plenty of active living left in you, even after hip replacement (especially after hip replacement!).You're now part of the new generation I call Baby Zoomers. New devices, better technology and a wealth of experience lets surgeons fix your hips and free you, not limit you.
Don't believe me? I've had hip replacement – and I'm more active than ever.
So get back to living. Move as young as you feel – because you still have plenty of life in you yet.
Why am I a fitness pro?
Mostly because I proclaimed myself one.
But, let’s just say I started out 25 years ago as an over zealous aerobics instructor and suddenly, two and a half decades have passed.
I’m here to try to inspire you with my story, despite my bunion and hammertoe, despite my tight hamstrings, my torn ACL and the fact that I can’t remember my next door neighbor’s first name occasionally.
And my lack of remaining knee cartilage as well as my two artificial hips.
Maybe I should not even mention my decreased production of collagen and the resulting wrinkles (only when I smile, unfortunately-why can’t they show when I frown?), also the morning stiffness and night time insomnia.
And my denial about needing reading glasses.
“Waiter, Just bring me the Chicken Ceasar Salad.”
How’s that for credentials?
So I have created New Hip Tips to remind you that you are not alone and that the battle is (or will be) worth all of the effort and to never, never, never give up.
