San Diego, CA, December 11, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- According to the American Diabetes Association, an estimated 57 million people are at risk of diabetes. In an effort to raise awareness of the importance of exercise in the prevention of diabetes, VQ ActionCare hosted a giveaway contest in November in honor of American Diabetes Month. Dozens of consumers wrote in to VQ ActionCare describing why they or a loved one deserve a Resistance Chair®, the patented, low-impact exercise system designed to help mature adults improve strength, endurance, flexibility and balance.
After reviewing the multitude of entries, the VQ ActionCare team selected the entry from Lance Batchelder for his wife, Andrea. His submission included the following: “My wife has been having many health issues. She is at a point where she can’t exercise anymore because of a bad back. In spite of her health challenges, she continues to tutor children and teach them to read. She is a remarkable reading teacher.”
Upon notification of the winning entry, Mrs. Batchelder noted, “I’m thrilled to be the winner of the Resistance Chair®. My husband and I have been researching the possibility of getting a Resistance Chair® for about a month. Our research led us to multiple testimonials of people who were thrilled, not only with the quality of the workout, but also the workmanship of the Chair. Due to a serious back injury that has left me unable to walk or stand for any length of time, I’ve been frustrated in my inability to achieve even the most modest fitness goals. Hopefully with the Resistance Chair®, I will be able to improve the condition of my back and achieve a weight loss goal of at least 50 pounds. I can’t wait to begin. This is a blessing to our entire family.”
VQ ActionCare will award the Batchelders with a Resistance Chair® (a $239.70 value) and an instructional DVD to guide them through a wide range of stretching and strength exercises. The company will also track the couple’s progress over the next several months to see how the Resistance Chair® is helping them achieve their weight and fitness goals.
