Frank HanleyJoin us for our second session of the month, “Why Exercise?” led by Frank Hanley.  In this session, Frank will share the ins and outs of his struggle with FSHD and his wellness journey.  He will lead an in-depth discussion of why a fitness and wellness program is important for FSHD patients.

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.
