What an exciting and busy time it has been for team JC since last summer. We have made great strides, JC has worked tirelessly to reach his goals that were set for him after we finished Project walk last august! We have slowly acquired the equipment necessary for him to continue a program that is similar to what they have at Project Walk. JC continues to work 7 days a week with an intense exercise program that is not for the faint hearted. We made his dream of going back home to India a reality, he raced along side us at the Testaverde Race this year pushing himself in his power assisted chair, and 4 years later we were able to give back to the people that saved his life at the trauma center at Westchester Medical Center.
The goals that we wanted to reach before going back to project walk are all being achieved one at a time. JC is able to roll with bending one leg over the other now, and is now working on independent log rolling. He is able go from (prone) laying on his belly to quadruped (on his knees and forearms) this takes a lot of coordination from his core and legs, and truly such an amazing thing to see.
JC is still going strong with the e-stim bike, firing up his core and getting signals all the way down his legs. At Athlete Evolution the program continues to be intense and progressive! He is able to do the spin life bike for 45 minutes now without assistance, he is standing with moderate assistance, and continues to improve each and every day. Please enjoy our stories about these experiences and our slide shows that depict JC's amazing progress!!
