Island Fitness on Bainbridge Island is a health resource for the whole community. As a 70-year-old retired woman recovering from a total knee replacement, I am warmly welcomed and supported with dignity, even though I am not a "jock" (the kind of person I previously, and erroneously, assumed were its prime users). Working with a personal trainer, I am gradually building a level of fitness unexpected for someone diagnosed with FSHD, a rare muscle-wasting disease and hereditary form of muscular dystrophy. I am not alone in working toward fitness goals later in life: Other members older than I come in to build strength with custom-tailored work-out plans; some are even in wheelchairs or use walkers. They, too, persist, undeterred and encouraged. Robin H., Bainbridge Island, WA
