"You get a personal touch here, people who are concerned about you, know your condition, know who you are and support you as you work toward reaching your goals."
Kevin Barry was born with aortic valve abnormality and went through Cardiac Rehabilitation to strengthen his heart. He joined the Fitness Center after being recommended by a friend and several of his neighbors. "My experience is that the people are so different at Burke, everyone is very nice helpful, always willing to talk to you and see how you’re doing," he says.
Kevin has become a regular. His endurance is greater than it was 10 years ago, and he has lost over sixty pounds. "I can do more, I feel stronger and I also mentally feel better." According to Kevin, the best part of Burke's Fitness Center is the ability to ask a staff member to help him try something new and have support, as well as the ability to be evaluated to help you progress toward your goals.
"I’m very happy that I was recommended to Burke, I feel a lot of the strides I have made are because of the facility and people who work here."
