I had torn my meniscus and waited almost a whole year before I had it repaired.  So, I lost a lot of strength and stamina.  I was also over 100 pounds heavier at the time.  After surgery and during PT, I realized I need to walk more but it was hard to do.   So, I started working on the Alter G.  Within about 2-3 weeks, I went from just walking on it to jogging for 3 minutes and walking for 2 minutes. I’m the least athletic person you’ve ever met, but I love the Alter G.  I’m always sad when my time is up.   Thank you Auburn PT for all your help and encouragement in getting me to where I am today.
