How many people’s packing list for travel includes a wheelchair, oxygen generator and a spare leg?   

Our company, Fitneff, advocates integrating movement into everyday life, so I am always encouraging people to break away from the status quo and embrace movement.  For three weeks last fall I had a chance to be inspired by two amazing seniors who have shown me that integrating movement can be accomplished anywhere, by anyone, at any age!
