HealthStatus PowerVibe Challange

Three members of the HealthStatus team have volunteered to use the PowerVibe equipment for the next 5 months and chart their progress.     This post will introduce each of our three volunteers.   They will share their goals and “gulp” their measurements.   The team has decided they will use the PowerVibe along side their regular routine.   No other special diets or exercise other than their normal routine and the PowerVibe sessions as directed by Dr. Reichardt and the PowerVibe team.
