‘My name is Mapie, female 57 years old. In May 2012, I had a major back surgery. I had a scoliosis and they reduced my curve by implanting two long rods and 26 screws from the middle of my shoulder blades to my sacrum. It was scary but I was lucky, the 5 hours surgery went well. I was even luckier to meet Jonny Parr. He is my personal trainer since the surgery and I was amazed by his knowledge and his patience. He is very dedicated to his clients, taking one step after the other to help me, to encourage me…and I needed it. At first I wasn’t able to keep my balance and to walk very well. It’s a long process but I feel stronger every day.I can’t thank him enough for the help he gave me and still give me. He is a very capable young man, you can trust him, believe me!’
