Exercise, Live Well and Feel Better
In October of 2007, Network 11’s Consumer Committee unanimously voted to begin working on a new project focused on fitness for people with kidney disease.
As part of this project, Network 11 invited people with kidney disease to assess their experiences with exercise. Network 11 received over 1300 responses. Most responders felt that exercise was very important and about 60% said they exercised regularly. Those who did not exercise regularly said that it was because they were tired and not motivated. Patients who did exercise regularly noticed improved energy and strength.
Exercise, Live Well & Feel Better was produced by Network 11 in 2009. This 15 minute DVD features testimonials from patients on various modalities, who have improved the quality of their lives though exercise.
