This month, we’re excited to welcome Mitch Wade, a fitness trainer from Portland, Oregon. Mitch is a legend in the FSHD community for his understanding of FSHD and results he has achieved with clients to help restore strength, range of motion, and function. No one can reverse the FSHD disease process, but a trainer or therapist who understands how FSHD affects different muscles can make an enormous difference. Mitch will discuss his approach and hopefully equip you with knowledge to find your personal strategy for optimizing your strength and fitness.
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.
