Letter to my resilient clients

Dear Resilient Clients, This has certainly been a long and challenging season for all of us…and I do hope you are all doing well.

Nineteen (19) years ago, I was diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer and had two thyroidectomies. In spite of taking thyroid replacement medication, my energy was at an all-time low. Thanks to the exercise program that Abby Dixson developed for me, I increased [my energy] and have retained my strength. My regimen of exercises include: stationary bicycling, weight lifting, resistance bands and more. I also do a lot of balance and flexibility training. I am deeply grateful for Abby’s help and I cannot recommend her enough.

It is a pleasure to share my experiences with Abby, my personal trainer. I have been her client for over 12 years; she has helped me reach my personal goals. Two years ago, I was diagnosed with kidney cancer, and I had the strength to get me through surgery and recovery. After six weeks, I returned to Abby to keep up my strength, physically and mentally. She is knowledgeable, caring, and empathetic. During COVID-19 we have continued our sessions virtually. Recently, I have been going to her studio part-time, and because it’s private, she’s able to sanitize between clients, as opposed to a public gym. I feel completely safe and will be continuing this journey with her!”

I met Abby at a Heart-Healthy workshop. I was physically broken, experiencing intense pain in my back, SI joints, and hips. Exercise made me feel worse. I tried a trainer at a popular club who set me back weeks. I went to Abby and she conducted a full assessment of my issues and set a plan for me; she was patient, kind, and competent. She worked with me twice a week and in three years she put me back together. I could trust Abby to be gentle with me but always moved me forward. She is a great teacher and trainer. I moved to Arizona and I am out hiking desert trails. Could never have done that without Abby.

In 2010, my eating and weight were out of control and I didn't know where to turn. I was almost 280 pounds. I knew I wanted my life to be different and I took a small step. I called Abby ... She taught me how to connect with my body again- Abby took the journey with me and the incredible support I received from her is something I could never repay. It took 4 more years before I was ready to tackle my deep seeded food issues; all the while continuing my new training. I lost 100 pounds and counting with Abby's support and my new relationship with food. I could not have done it without her!


“As a client of MediFit for 7 years, I’ve gained a lot of physical strength and encouragement from working with Abby regularly. After a diagnosis of osteoporosis several years ago, I was determined to strengthen my bones and muscles. With Abby’s expertise and upbeat demeanor, I’ve gained a lot of positive results—including a much stronger and toned body!”
