MS Fitness Challenge considered for South Florida

MSFC has developed the MS Fitness & Wellness Specialist trainer certification for fitness professionals with American Fitness Professionals & Associates (AFPA), an internationally recognized accredited organization that has certified nearly 100,000 fitness professionals since 1994. 
The MSFC course provides trainers, coaches & health professionals with the necessary guidelines, exercise protocols, lifestyle recommendations and resources to be successful in helping clients with Multiple Sclerosis achieve a healthier lifestyle! 

This specialized certification prepares trainers to work with people who have Multiple Sclerosis and who are looking to control their disease through exercise and nutrition. It is promoted as well by AFAA, ACE and NASM, three of the largest fitness organizations in the world.  MSFC helps connect these trainers with people with MS nationwide through our association with the Medical Fitness Network (MFN). 

Many have made suggestions to Stuart that exercise alone can beat MS
Stuart's response: I do not think we should claim that exercise alone will beat the disease but it would be a great complementary agent along with using with an existing Mainstream MS medication.

I agree 100% with Stu on a complimentary approach. Exercise and even diet, although many claim "miracles", is NOT a cure. We have to be proactive and some need MS meds to help while others don't. I am very leery of the stories of how people are "healed" by a Paleo diet or some form of workout. That's nonsense or everyone would be cured!! I believe that a lifestyle of fitness, health and nutrition is a big part of battling MS and should be incorporated in every MSer's life even from a wheelchair. But I NEVER tell anyone not to take meds unless they make that choice or do so with their doctor.   – Written by David Lyons, Founder of MS Fitness Challenge –


There is thought to bring this Fitness Challenge to South Florida, if there are enough people interested in participating. First, we would have this take place in Palm Beach County and then maybe Broward County if the reception is warm -- Stu's Views

So, a Question for those affected by MS and living in South Florida: 
What are your thoughts for the MS Fitness Challenge?
