A few months ago Paul contacted me, worried about his rotator injury. Not everyone hires me to lose weight. Today we can say that he is fully recovered. He is not a blogger, but I have asked him to describe his experience to share it with you. Here it is.
“To share my experience is not a compromise, it is a pleasure.
I started young playing sports. Being an athlete is a lifestyle and a philosophy. It´s taking your day as a challenge, seeking to overcome. My dictionary doesn´t contain the word “surrender”.
After a nasty blow dragged by a wave, I felt some discomfort in my shoulder. At first, I thought it would be temporary. But I was wrong. Months of rest, ice, pills… nothing worked.
After reading Google´s answer, two years without physical exercise, I decided to contact Chape.
To sow hope in the heart of a demoralized is not so easy, so…
I will never forget the first thing Chape told me: You have not an injury, you only have a weak point and you need to strengthen it.
That phrase sums up his philosophy: He does not accept defeat. He knows he is able to accomplish anything with determination and effort.
I followed his routines. First and most difficult, trust him and myself. Once done, I got up from the couch and went to the gym. Tailored exercises allowed me to have fun with the advantage that I was recovering my injury.
After three months, I started to get better. 7 months later my shoulder was stronger than ever.
When I’m hanging in a harness, I do not remember which is the injured shoulder. I will never forget the lesson: with effort and faith in ourselves no injury will last forever”.
I want to thank Paul publicly for these nice words about me and tell everyone that, if you need help to recover from an injury, here I am!
