“FSHD is always attacking me… it never takes a day off. I practice qigong and kung fu daily. It’s my way to fight back.” – Frank Hanley
Frank Hanley returns to lead the March “Feeling Fit” sessions. Frank will introduce a variety of exercises to stretch and strengthen the hands, wrists and forearms.
Frank is a martial artist, author, and teacher of Hung Ga style Kung Fu, Taijiquan and multiple Qigong styles and practices. He organized and launched the FSHD Society South Carolina Chapter and served as Chapter Director.
For people living with FSHD who are interested in exercise and fitness, we meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month at 12:00 pm (noon) U.S. Eastern Time. Come dressed for exercise and have on hand any safety and assistive devices you need. Not every exercise is appropriate or safe for every individual, so please use your best judgement and consult your health care provider.
Please come prepared with a stable chair or stool (back of chair is optional). You can also choose to bring light weights ranging from 1lb to 5lb.
