Day 29 of #31DaysOfCF: I Tried Something New And Found My Passion
Growing up, Rachel Reschke was compliant with her CF regimen but there was one thing she despised: exercise. Yet eventually, she found her desire to grow and to learn how to dance! Rachel soon found her body becoming stronger, and the number of times she was hospitalized decreased significantly.
Fast forward, and Rachel is a personal trainer, manager of a corporate fitness facility, and group exercise instructor. Why? Because she tried something new and found her passion. “Having cystic fibrosis makes it difficult and uncomfortable to get physical activity and exercise, but I discovered what matters is we do what we can — with what our bodies will allow — and we find what we enjoy, while pushing ourselves a little.”
Rachel, your positive energy is infectious!
Now back to our CF Community: Are you able to include a form of exercise into your routine? If so, how has it helped you?
