I would have given up if I did not have Ralph pushing and encouraging me - Peter
Following major surgery on my neck I felt that I needed to build up the muscle in my neck and upper body without putting a major strain on my neck by lifting weights.
Ralph worked out a program for me which I did on a weekly basis for the next six months or so. He used equipment that meant I was not putting excess strain on my neck but at the same time built the muscle up so that my spine had more support where it was needed.
It was very hard work and I would have given up if I did not have Ralph pushing and encouraging me, but it made a huge difference and was definitely worth the effort. My general overall fitness also improved dramatically and I had much more energy.
