One Step at a Time

Getting back on track after beating breast cancer with help from SuperSlow Zone.

 

A diagnosis breast cancer and lymphedema is incredibly challenging, even if you happen to be a medical professional of more than 50 years. Understandably vulnerable at times, physical therapist and home health care specialist Susan Hill turned the table on her stage 2 cancer diagnosis and let it shape her life. And in doing so, she became not only a breast cancer survivor, but a thriver.

“Like my physical therapy patients feel, my diagnosis felt like climbing a mountain until I took one step,” Hill said. “Sometimes goals can seem too big, too far, unattainable, or doable; however, you still set the goal.”

 

I tell my patients, ‘Let’s just take one step and get going.’ I needed the same help.” -Susan Hill

 

Following a partial radical mastectomy and rehab, 74-year-old Hill took her own advice and joined SuperSlow Zone personal strength training to help get back on track with her work, travel plans, life goals, and overall health.

 

“I tell my patients, ’Let’s just take one step and get going.’ I needed the same help,” Hill said. “So, I signed up at Super- Slow Zone for personal strength training. I took one step, with lots of help!” Regaining the strength to work with her patients was a must for Hill, who experienced an 8 percent drop in bone density, from chemotherapy to a nerve injury to her shoulder during her surgery.

 

SuperSlow Zone is a personal wellness and exercise studio, not a gym. As a professional service, instructors are focused on safely and effectively providing results-focused care. Joanie said 71 percent of new clients come from referrals and 21 percent of those are from physicians. SuperSlow Zone is accredited by the prestigious IAC- ET which accredits, among many others, the American Physical Therapy Association and the National Institute of Health.

 

“Clients come, stay and refer because it works. Super-Slow Zone clients are typically very busy men and women ages 35 to 75 and older, who require measurable results in their health, well-being and fitness in minimum time. All of us, like Susan, know that improving our outer strength supports improved inner strength.”

 

Taking it one step at a time, and with help from SuperSlow Zone professionals, Hill beat cancer and got back to her life, including a trip to Singapore with her grandchildren and competing with her sister in the Buffalo Bayou Regatta for canoes earlier this year – and coming in first in their division.

 

“Exercise is essential for my strength, posture, functionality, balance and, managing lymphedema,” said Hill. “I am little but strong!”

Finding time to exercise is one of the top challenges we all face in the quest to get fit. But you can reap the benefits of exercise in just 20 minutes, twice a week, said Joanie, owner of SuperSlow Zone in Pleasanton. “We all need a good dose of muscle,” Joanie said. The benefits of increasing strength and building muscle range from improved cardiovascular health to weight loss to disease prevention.

 

The best way to get started and ensure ongoing success is having one-on-one help from a qualified, professional fitness trainer.

   

The best way to get started and ensure ongoing success is having one-on- one help from a qualified fitness trainer. A trainer can address your personal goals and limitations and provide support along the way. Super Slow Zone certified instructors teach a slow and controlled method to safely and effectively exercise your muscles to momentary muscle fatigue. What does this mean? In simple terms, it means that you push until you can’t push any more. Why Momentary muscular fatigue stimulates your body’s own growth mechanism to “make more muscle.” It should be viewed as a signal to the body that it needs to get stronger in order to meet the demands being placed upon it. During each appointment, you exercise on 5 to 6 pieces of strength training equipment.

 

Personal attention and expertise enable you to achieve optimal fitness and health results in minimum time, said Joanie. Accredited by the prestigious IACET.org, SuperSlow Zone delivers the highest standards to serve busy clients with mi- nor-to-major health challenges and the general exerciser.

 

Increase in strength is usually responsible for what is perceived as cardiovascular improvement, says Joanie.

 

The heart and lungs exist for the purpose of supporting or servicing the working skeletal muscles. As the muscles improve in their ability to do work more efficiently, there is less demand on the cardiovascular system. That is why you need resistance levels, or weights, that are perfect for your current strength level which progresses you safely and effectively to increased total body strength.

 

“I look forward to my workouts and having everything set up for me that I know is right for my strength levels, “said Dr. Cheryl Hinners, a SuperSlow Zone client. “I just have to show up and my Instructor guides me through it.”

“I look forward to my workouts and having everything set up and ready to go for me,” says SuperSlow Zone client Dr. Cheryl Hinners. “I just have to show up and my instructor guides me through it. They know my strength levels and how to challenge me. I feel so much stronger since starting this program. And the best thing is, I do not dread going to my workout session”

 

What About Cardio?

The heart is an involuntary muscle that responds to the increased demands of the skeletal muscles. Thus, your only means of voluntarily controlling the heart-albeit an indirect means-is by working your skeletal muscles. The notion of cardio, in the sense that we can isolate its involvement by some special activity for the heart, is false.
