Boston Herald article on USA Adaptive Climbing Nationals – June 2017

POA’s Ronnie Dickson reports that the USA Adaptive Climbing Nationals in Boston this weekend were a big success! Text message from Ronnie: “We rocked it out and had over 60 competitors at the adaptive climbing national championships with the furthest coming from Japan and India. We totaled 200 with spectators and volunteers. Jeff Bauman and I made the cover of the Boston Herald and I got him and Jazz (another POA client from Boston area) climbing!” (click on following link to view Boston Herald article.) http://www.bostonherald.com/news/columnists/bill_speros/2017/06/speros_jeff_bauman_battles_back_to_be_stronger

POA’s Celeste Corcoran: “One Boston Marathon Survivor’s Course to Recovery,” article by Gym Source, 4/12/2017

In this article by Gym Source, Celeste spoke of her first visit to POA, four years ago: “Working with POA she began to feel that ‘nothing was taken from me that I can’t get back. I can even be better than I was before.'” Celeste’s great love of people and new knowledge of prosthetics has put her on a quest to help as many amputees as possible acquire the prosthetic limbs they need. Celeste works passionately with Steve Chamberland, founder of 50legs.com, a non-profit foundation which does just that! https://www.gymsource.com/blog/one-boston-marathon-survivors-course-to-recovery/

Celeste Corcoran – Stronger Than Ever!

Because of all the great Pilates work Celeste has been doing, the muscles in her legs have strengthened and developed. We made new prosthetic legs which allow her to fire and use those muscles, and Celeste headed back to Boston on Wednesday walking faster, stronger, and with even more confidence! ‪#‎NoBoundaries‬ ‪#‎CorcoranStrong‬

Jeff Bauman, Boston Marathon Bombing Survivor, Standing Strong!

POA’s Celeste Corcoran Is Taking her Life Back…One Step at a Time! Boston Strong!! 8/4/2013

We are so proud of Celeste Corcoran and all the great progress she made in just two weeks!   Friday, her last day at POA, was also a day of empowerment.  Stan Patterson had the honor of being her first haircut client in our makeshift salon. 🙂  After that, Stan taught Celeste to how drive a car with her prosthetic legs using the X3 microprocessor leg in ‘drive’ mode for the gas, and her left (BK) leg on the brake.  She was a little apprehensive at first, but the lesson went off without a hitch, and another obstacle to Celeste’s independence was conquered!  Next was a session with personal trainer Jim Borda in our fitness facility. He worked with Celeste to put together a series of core strengthening exercises to improve her balance and walking. Following video shows highlights of the day –> Celeste Corcoan Takes Her Life Back
