Client Spotlight: Will B.

Will came to the TR after injuring his back in February. Being a police officer, the health of his back is critical to his job and forced him out of work for 4 months.  Here’s his story:

Since my injury, I had countless doctor appointments, saw 2 back specialists, 3 sessions of acupuncture, massage therapy, 20 sessions of physical therapy and 1 epidural injection…all of which did NOTHING for me.   In fact, one back specialist told me I had three choices: learn to live with the pain, live on pain killers, or surgery because there is no “magic pill.” I refused to accept any of these options.
A month and a half ago, my back was killing me and I thought to myself, “I can’t live like this.” In desperation I decided to Google “working out with a back injury,” which led me to kettlebell workouts.  After reading more, I searched for kettlebell gyms/trainers in the Boston area and found The Training Room.  I’ve been working with Kyle and he’s been AWESOME. He’s taught me a lot about how the body works and responds to exercise.  After 8 sessions I’m back to work and living life.  His patience and attention to every detail is the reason I have my life back.  I can’t say I’m 100% yet, but I know I’ll get there. I can also say that the doctor who told me there’s “no magic pill” was wrong…there is a magic pill, it’s called hard work.
