Mary Bridenthal
Age 77
Big Prairie, OH - Anthem/BCBS
Kinetics Fitness for Life

 

Mary Bridenthal, age 77, suffers from Parkinson’s disease, but since joining SilverSneakers she says her life has changed. She was not able to function at a high level, but since finding SilverSneakers at Kinetics Fitness for Life, her quality of life has improved. Mary loves the people she has met. She says they are so friendly and make her feel comfortable around them. When she first started, she could barely get out of a chair or walk without assistance. Now, she can move easily without assistance and continually gets stronger. She encourages others to find SilverSneakers to experience the joy she has found, especially those with debilitating diseases, so they can combat the struggles together.
