Exercise: it really works
cle “Home Spun Research,” there was a part of it that talked about knee soreness. If all the muscles connected to your knee are properly conditioned and strengthened they will keep that knee joint open and properly aligned, which results in less wear and tear on the joint and less pain (no matter how torn down they are). It spurred a number of discussions with members and friends agreeing and realizing the truth of this. In fact, one of the testimonials explained that when he travels and is away from structured weight lifting for longer than a couple of weeks, he notices that his knees become painful. He knows that strengthening is postponing knee surgery and reduces the aches and pains. Another friend of mine told me that her knees were continuously achy, until she became regular with her leg strengthening program. She walks regularly, hikes often and sometimes cycles; which you’d think would keep her knees strong? With the constant pounding of the gravitational impact on the knees, it wasn’t until she countered that consistent impact with increased strengthening of all the leg muscles that she found less soreness in the knee after her exercise and outdoor

One of my good friends, whose business is experiencing the increased flux of summer residents, told me during my appointment with her. “I can tell that I haven’t been in to workout lately.” Her business requires her to do a lot of forward bending over. With the increased summer workload, she has found herself in a lot of pain with increased soreness in her upper back, shoulders and neck. Her strength training program includes a little extra upper back and rhomboid strengthening, just for her occupation. Now she is suffering and hurting.

after I discovered that I needed some eggs for a recipe that I was making for an event that afternoon. I ran into the convenience store to grab what I needed and one of our members told me, “since I’ve come back and have been consistent with my exercise, I am now completely off my high blood pressure medication.” She had been on blood pressure medication since the birth of her teenage son. Yes, I know that exercise has done this to hundreds of our members, but to hear it on a Sunday morning with the excitement and satisfaction in her voice, completely made my day. And to add to this testimony, she not only has made a huge impact on her own life, she has been exercising with her daughter this entire time. She’s now set a healthy example for her daughter, both experiencing and reaping the benefits of how exercise can affect our lives.

Participation was up 32 percent over its first year. One Book One Valley continues to be made possible through private donations granted by the Estes Valley Library Foundation. In particular, the largest share of funds was realized through a bequest from the late Sally Uhlir, an educator and lifelong reader who called Estes Park home.
