and those with concerns of exercise safety or large gym environments.
"Osteoporosis and heart disease run in my family, so I wasn't looking for a gym. I was looking for a medical fitness center....HealtH2O offers so much more than a gym; frankly, it is the only facility in the area that can meet my needs...."
"Having gone through breast cancer surgery to included chemo and radiation in 2002-03, I found that I had lost my strength and energy...I attended a Red Hats meeting where Nancy gave a presentation on the benefits of exercise to improve health....I went to the very next class. She met with me and sent over the complete procedures of the class, discussed my medical and health conditions, my specific reasons for taking the class, and what my expectations were and how class would help me....I can climb stairs better, my joints do not hurt constantly, and my general health has improved immensely...the back and abs class has helped my lower back...Nancy looks at the overall health of each person..."
TR, retired teacher
"With intense guidance from Nancy and her wealth of health-related knowledge, my blood sugars are in perfect control...Nancy has given me a new lease on life with her personal guidance and care which is truly heartfelt...."
"Because my husband has serious issues with osteoarthritis and I have advanced osteoporosis, we felt such a program (Stretching and weight lifting class) was necessary to retain our mobility. (No other fitness center would let me join due to the severity of my osteoporosis.) We cannot say enough about what these classes have done for us in retaining balance, range of motion and muscle strength. At 76 and 82 we consider this program very literally a life saver!"
"I have noted that patients I refer to the HealtH2O programs are extremely satisfied and encouraged by the exercise and educational programs offered."
Dr. RR, chiropractor
"I do not enjoy exercising of any kind, yet when I suffered a heart attack in 2004, my Dr. told me without exercise and medication, I could only look forward to serious heart complications....I was in for a pleasant surprise when she (Nancy Buttke) explained her program. Not only is their program just what the Dr. ordered, but they make it fun. This is essential for a cardiac patient."

"I am thankful that I have HealtH2O available as I learned during my Pulmonary Rehab that exercise is essential for my well-being. I am a continual Oxygen user and Have emphysema. They allow my oxygen company to deliver a large oxygen tank for my use only....they keep records of all the information regarding my BP, oxygen levels while I exercise and workouts..."
"My husband and I have been going to Nancy Buttke's exercises for about 6 years....he is 86 years old....has 2 artificial heart valves and a pacemaker...I have high BP, a pacemaker and osteoporosis.
We go to classes because they are geared for people with health problems. I credit my husband's getting through his major health problems to the exercises he has been getting. I feel that my ability to care for him and do all the things I'm able to do with the exercises I have been getting."
