"Wicked Core changed the course of my life"


"After 6 months of severe back pain and muscle spasms following surgery, I was out of options. Three different doctors told me there was nothing else they could do other than prescribe more pain pills. I had hit a low point in my life and wondered if every last bit of my youth was behind me, whether I would ever be able to enjoy the physical activities I loved again.

My wife was a regular at Wicked Core and asked me to try a class with her. I was reluctant to risk making my back worse, but decided to try it out. Surprisingly, I was able to do most of the exercises, and when I couldn't do something, the instructors would help me modify the workout to what I could do. It was hard, but low impact. I was excited to find a way to exercise despite my back problems, and started going to classes 4-5 times a week.

After around 10 classes I started feeling a big improvement in my back pain. I was so encouraged, that I bought an unlimited membership so I could go to as many classes as possible and made it my goal to take my life back from the pain.

I just hit my 50th class and in a little under 3 months my back pain is completely gone. I feel stronger than I have in years and have more energy than I can ever remember. While the Wicked Core classes are still a challenge and not something I always feel like doing, I've made them a permanent part of my week. I truly feel like Wicked Core changed the course of my life."
