When Casey’s son was admitted to the hospital with horrible stomach pain caused by a flare up from Crohn’s Disease, she did not want to leave his side. For days, Casey and her husband sat in the hospital room as their son recovered, and there wasn’t much to do except patiently sit and wait.
“I got to the point where I am like, why am I just sitting here?” Casey said. “I need to physically move, and then I remembered I had signed up for BurnAlong. I had my iPad in the hospital with me, and I said, ‘You know what, I’m going to take one of Monte’s classes on BurnAlong.’”
Casey has been religiously attending Monte Sanders MBS Fitness Lab Bootcamp for the past year. With hard work and dedication, she has lost a significant amount of weight and found strength, confidence, and a sense of community along the way. Exercise has become part of her everyday routine, and she wasn’t going to let the hospital room keep her from working out.
In the quiet hospital room, Casey pulled up the BurnAlong app and started streaming one of Monte’s classes.
“It felt so much better being able to move,” Casey said. “When you’re in the hospital you think you need to be still, quiet, and do nothing, but that’s not true. I wanted to get up and move, but I would not leave my son. So, I took a few classes on BurnAlong, and I couldn’t believe I was sweating in the hospital!”
As Casey exercised to Monte’s Standing Abs in the hospital room, her son laughed and Snapchatted pictures to his friends.
“He couldn’t stop laughing at me, and it was so nice to provide entertainment while he was in pain,” Casey said.
The beauty of BurnAlong is you can workout wherever you are, regardless of the situation. You don’t have to sit in a stiff hospital room killing time by watching television. You can grab your computer, phone, or tablet and do a quick workout to get the body moving and the blood flowing. With a little ingenuity and dedication, you can continue to exercise and maybe entertain a few bystanders along the way.
