So, I don't know if any of you have heard about this, but it has been all over the news and is particularly exciting to me.
I've been looking for a personal trainer or someone to work with who will help me get back into shape, but make sure that I don't hurt myself in the process. This hasn't been an easy search and I have pretty much ended it to no avail.
However, there is this great program at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago that specializes in working with people who have chronic pain. It’s month-long, intense program that helps people build strength they have lost due to chronic illness and pain.
More information about the Rehabilitation Institute can be found here:
And information about the Pain Boot Camp can be found here:
Since I’m not in the kind of pain that I was before, this isn’t something I would do in the near future, but is definitely something I would keep in mind, should the need arise.
By the way, does anyone know of anyone in the area who works with people with chronic illnesses in terms of exercise and personal training?
