Featured Challenge Timeline
This week’s Featured Challenge Timeline comes from Brandon Poulin who is utilizing the Fit Kit to complete an Active Challenge. Brandon has a VERY ambitious goal of rehabbing his knee after an ACL tear and surgery to the point of completing a 5k- only three and a half months post surgery!
Having knee surgery, specifically work done on your ACL, is a very difficult surgery to come back from quickly. With Brandon’s tireless work ethic and the fact this is his second knee surgery (so he knows what he’s in store for) he seems to be well on his way to succeeding.
Here’s an excerpt from Brandon’s Challenge Timeline that really emphasizes how this surgery recovery is going so much better than the last and how ViSalus has played a part in that:
“Today marks 1 month after the surgery. I have to say I am astounded with my rehab and how well it is going. As I said before this is my 2nd ACL repair, with that said, this time post operation for my first surgery was VERY different. Last time around after a month I was still barely walking without crutches and had major swelling that was quite painful. I had just finished taking pain killers because the pain was much worse. So definitely this time, the second time around, preparation, a motivating mindset, and Vi shakes have made everything much much easier!”
At the time of the above post, Brandon was already doing squats and additional exercises on top of his rehab routine- VERY impressive! Brandon is only a few days away from completing this Challenge and it appears that his goal is attainable. We wish you the best of luck Brandon, and are so impressed with your progress thus far!
Be sure to head over to Brandon’s Challenge Timeline and show some support for him as he strives to rehabilitate his knee while also preparing for a 5k race. Keep up the fantastic work, Brandon!
