My rheumatologist has always said you have to move and stay active

Today I profile one of the most positive ladies I have had the privilege to coach.

Joanne Cameron (73)

Thank you for letting me share my story.

I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 30. I have been on every possible medication since then and I am still on the most advanced medication today.

I have had three major back surgeries resulting in two metal rods from my neck down to the middle of my back and 17 screws holding things together.

I was always the person that would say I will start on Monday. Then five and a half years ago my best friend Lynne phoned and said we should do this Super 60 and it is only thirty minutes, we can do this.

This was the start of making amazing friends and working out three times a week. Things change and now with this new normal online is where we are. Still with the group and our amazing coach, I am now doing four times a week.

My wrist and fingers are not good now but with all the modifications Pauline brings in it all works.

Thank you, Pauline, for bringing different workouts every day. You have kept me committed for five and half years. Encouragement from our forever friends make things so much fun.

My rheumatologist has always said you have to move and stay active and thank you Pauline for keeping me healthy at 73 years of age.
