Overcome Exercise Excuses!

Overcome the Exercise Excuses-Kidney-Talk

Shari GilfordShari Gilford, a current transplant recipient; previously on nocturnal home HD, in-center HD, CAPD, CCPD; and a recipient of two other transplants speaks with Lori Hartwell and Stephen Furst about motivating yourself to exercise. Shari is a busy woman, and her life has not been an easy one, yet she is happier, younger, and more energetic than ever. It all starts with the will to exercise. Refusing to let her difficulties dictate to her what she could and couldn’t do, she took control of her health and made a positive change to her entire life.

Listen to Shari’s message and hear the infinite benefits for patients who exercise. You will be motivated!

If you are on dialysis or have a transplant, RSN recommends that you first check with your doctor before you initiate an exercise regimen. Your doctor will be able to advise you on what activities are safe for you to do.

Remember, “Exercise is a gift only you can give yourself.”
