“It feels really amazing to get back to my old life”

Kevin Craner was in the shape of his life when he was suddenly diagnosed with reflux. He was given medicine but the side effects terrified him. Kevin thought about whether it was possible to train the muscles and took a chance with IQoro.

We received a great feel good story from the 41-year-old lawyer Kevin, to our customer support, about how training with IQoro really has made a difference that we want to share.

“My name is Kevin Craner and I’m a 41 year old solicitor (what other countries may call a lawyer). I’ve always been into health and fitness. At 41 I was in the best shape of my life. I live on the coast and surf as much as possible, lift weights, and do high intensity cardio. I’ve always been very careful with what I have eaten, too. I wasn’t even registered with a doctor as I never fell ill.

My chest felt tight and my breathing wasn’t right.

In May 2019 I suddenly noticed a problem with my chest. It felt tight and my breathing wasn’t right. I hadn’t suffered from asthma since I was a child and I was convinced something must be triggering asthma again.

Diagnosed with reflux

I had tests, but it became clear that asthma wasn’t the problem. My doctor diagnosed me with reflux and put me on medication. I asked if there is an operation that could fix it, but he told me they rarely operate these days and the medication was the solution.

The side effects from all these drugs petrified me.

I felt so down at the thought I being on medication for the rest of my life. After taking it for several days I was suffering such bad side effects I had to come off it. After doing some research, the side effects from all these drugs petrified me.

As someone who has always been in to exercise, it made sense to me that if weakened muscles may be the problem, there must also be a way of strengthening them.

I took a chance on the IQoro. It made sense why it would work, since I was already familiar with the concept of neuromuscular adaptions from my workouts.

I got my old life back

Fast forward two months and finally I am off all medication. I don’t even need to take anything over the counter. It feels amazing to have been able to get back to my old life. I was in constant discomfort for nearly five months and thought my happy healthy life was over. I can’t tell you what a relief it is to finally feel normal again and not be worried about eating.”
