Jacob Grimm SCHENECTADY, NY
My name is Jacob Grimm and I have a severe seizure disorder. At any time I can start convulsing, shaking or gasping for air. I have a device in my chest to shut off my seizures that is regulated by a device I wear on my wrist. Upon entering the gym I was incredibly nervous, unbalanced and not as strong as I would like. After training with Brendan for almost 3 years, I can now stretch effectively (and even farther than Brendan sometimes); I can dead lift 225 lbs and hold a plank for over 2 minutes. Brendan helps me when I do have a seizure by supporting me to make sure I don’t hurt myself, and have my aide nearby. Not only have I lost weight and increased my strength, but also now I have a different outlook on life. I feel stronger and healthier than I’ve ever been. Thanks Brendan!
