No limitations at SNAP Fitness
Diana Neimann encourages elders and the disabled to keep exercising
Tuesday, August 28, 2012
As the head trainer at SNAP Fitness in Camas, Diana Neimann sees the benefits to exercising every day.
Watching Mary McFarland walk through the doors with such energy and excitement makes her smile. Especially since it takes the 17-year-old Camas High School senior 40 minutes to walk to the gym from home. Sometimes, she even beats Neimann into work.
“Mary has more determination to come in, get stronger and have a healthier lifestyle than a lot of people who walk through those doors,” Neimann said. “She’s such an inspiration.”
McFarland was born with a mental disability that affected her growth and coordination. Her mother Lori said Mary’s right leg is about two inches shorter than her left. By the time she was 13, he had to have her hip replaced.
