In the next episode of Mary Free Bed’s new podcast, “Rehabilitationships,” we meet a mother of eight breaking barriers.
An·ti·grav·i·ty – Definition – the antithesis of weight; defying the forces of gravity
Liz Fanco and her husband Jeff have eight children and live in Caledonia, Michigan. She was asked by two of her kids to join them in a half marathon. Her kids asked her, so she said yes.
The problem was, Liz has been overweight her whole life. She had never even run a mile before either.
The thing is, this wasn’t just any race, it was racing for a cause. Liz was inspired to support World Vision and raise funds to help people access clean water.
“As long, as I can move my feet,” Says Liz Fanco, “I’ll keep moving them until the global water crisis is solved.”
Liz moved her feet for three years, for thousands of miles, but she hated running. She just wanted to find a way to “hate running less.”
Then she met Todd. Todd Buckingham, Ph.D., is an exercise physiologist at Mary Free Bed’s Sports Rehabilitation Performance Lab.
They met, because she heard of this treadmill, an AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill. It might, just might help her to “hate running less.”
Hear Liz and Todd share about how their journey together in their own words. Learn about Liz’s amazing transformation and how she defied gravity, on the next episode of “Rehabilitationships.”
