The “7 Essential Movements” I wrote about in a cover story this week for The Seattle Times’ Pacific Northwest magazine really are for everyone. I mentioned in the story how stretching helped my dad get into the crawl space. He emailed me today to tell me he has “better stories” now. Here’s what he said:
The Union train station in Chicago has a long staircase probably 100 feet or longer with handrails about 20 feet apart. Before my regular exercises, I did not dare to go up and down in the middle of the stair case. I need[ed] to hold onto the handrail. Now I can walk up and down without the handrail. Come to think of it, I had the same problem at the entrance to the Art Institute. It is also gone!!!
Pretty awesome stuff. He’s in his 70s. If he can do it, you definitely can.
