Patient Duane Emery assisted a HealthSouth therapist in teaching a workout course for HealthSouth City View employees—including the CEO—on March 6, 2012.
Duane, an athletic trainer, is rehabilitating at HealthSouth City View following a C6-C7 spinal cord injury resulting from a car accident. The workout class was made up of employees who are partaking in HealthSouth City View’s Biggest Loser challenge, wherein employees compete with a goal of losing the largest percentage of body fat.
In true trainer fashion, Duane recommended exercises like burpees, push-ups, leg lifts, and bicep curls to help competitors reach their fitness goals, and gave tips on how to effectively complete a workout.
Duane’s spirit of encouragement certainly inspired these HealthSouth employees!
