No Lie

Innovative, once-a-week, 15-minute exercise sessions reverse bone loss.

Susan Constantine can tell if someone is lying or not. In fact, that’s her job. She’s also a speaker, a leadership coach and an author, but those professions all stem from her status as one of the world’s leading authorities on body language and deception detection.

Susan is one of the nation’s leading experts on body language and
a big fan of OsteoStrong.

“I started out as a trial consultant in the courtroom, profiling jurors,” Susan says. “It was something so intriguing that I became trained in investigative interrogative interviewing, statement analysis, voice stress analysis and how to read microexpressions.”

Most of Susan’s work is now done “behind the scenes” watching recorded depositions. But at 62, she still makes occasional appearances on TV, where she has appeared on major news networks as well as shows such as Dr. Phil and Today.

About 10 years ago, Susan had to do some analysis for herself when her doctor told her she was developing osteoporosis. Thinking she was too young to have the disease, she all but ignored it until a couple years ago, when she learned she had a benign tumor in a parathyroid gland.

“These little tumors can just eat away at the calcium in your bones, so that explained why I had osteoporosis at such a young age,” Susan says. “But once I knew for sure that I had it and the reason I had it, I started exploring my options for treating it.

“I wanted to stick to a natural remedy. In researching those, I read about OsteoStrong. I’d never heard of OsteoStrong before, but when I learned there’s actually a lot of science behind it, I thought, What have I got to lose? and decided to give it a try.”

Revolutionary Program

OsteoStrong is a revolutionary program that has helped more than 25,000 people reverse the negative effects of osteoporosis and its precursor osteopenia, potentially severe conditions that can greatly increase the risk of bone breaks.

Found most often in postmenopausal women, osteopenia and osteoporosis develop when new bone growth fails to keep pace with natural bone degeneration to the point where bone mineral density becomes dangerously low.

About 54 million Americans have osteopenia, osteoporosis or low bone mass, the latter of which also places them at increased risk for the hip, spine, wrist and other bone breaks that are most commonly associated with osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis can even cause some to lose height, as it affects the spine and leads to a stooped posture. Considered a silent disease by many physicians, osteoporosis often goes undetected until a fracture occurs. It’s not exclusive to women, as previously thought.

Statistics show that one of two women will suffer from an osteoporosis-related fracture at some point, and one in four men will experience a similar incident. Those odds are what prompted Susan to check out OsteoStrong.

“At the time, the closest OsteoStrong location was in Sarasota,” Susan says. “I’m in Lake Mary, which is 2½ hours away. We now have a studio very near my house, but I believe so much in OsteoStrong that back then it was worth it to make that long trip.”

The OsteoStrong program is designed to help people like Susan rebuild bone through once-a-week, 15-minute sessions that utilize proprietary equipment to achieve osteogenesis.

“I now have osteopenia, not osteoporosis. That’s incredible.” – Susan

The equipment includes four biomechanical machines that allow users to be placed in the safest and strongest position. During these sessions, the user safely exerts pressure four to 12 times their body weight.

“The difference between our equipment and the equipment used at a traditional gym is that our equipment is designed to strengthen the skeletal system, which means tension is developed without contraction of the muscle,” states Bryan Repple, owner of OsteoStrong in Lake Mary.

“There is no force pushing against you, which means you create the force. On the leg press, for example, I’ve had ladies in their 80s who weigh 100 pounds press 1,000 pounds. That’s because the equipment is designed to keep you in a safe position.

“For a 100-pound person to develop new bone working out on traditional equipment, they would need to create a resistance of well over 400 pounds. That simply can’t be done by 99 percent of people in a typical gym environment.”

Resistance Yields Results

To understand the difference between an OsteoStrong workout and a traditional workout, Bryan invites people to come in and try the equipment at his Lake Mary location, where he offers a complimentary tour and workout session.

“We help people build a stronger skeletal system, which further allows them to live a healthier, more active lifestyle,” Bryan adds. “It’s a truly amazing concept based on years of research into the body’s natural adaptive response to growing new bone.

“Through that research, we have come to learn that when you put certain forces on the bones, the body responds by growing new bone tissue. That’s a known medical fact. And the results of these short sessions are absolutely amazing.

“On average, our studies show that OsteoStrong improves bone density from 7 to 14 percent per year. Those studies also show that during their first year at OsteoStrong, people typically increase their strength by an average of 73 percent.”

Research shows that doing an OsteoStrong session more than once a week does not promote any additional benefit. As a result, the workouts are impactful and time efficient. And their benefits go beyond reversing osteoporosis. They also help alleviate pain associated with arthritis, fibromyalgia, knee and back injuries, neuropathy, Type 2 diabetes and vertigo, and improve posture, strength and balance.

Bryan encourages men and women of all ages to accept his invitation to try the OsteoStrong equipment. He feels it is important to know that osteoporosis is not a disorder that is exclusive to a specific age group or gender.

“Osteoporosis is not something that only happens to older people,” he explains. “We have clients from young to old and everything in between. And men are not immune. When they start losing their testosterone, their bone loss becomes more rapid.

“In addition to helping them recover from it, OsteoStrong wants to help educate people about bone loss. The skeletal framework is the most important part of the body, and you need to take care of it and be aware of changes to it.”

Routinely Recommended

Susan started doing OsteoStrong workouts a little more than two years ago when she had osteoporosis in her hips, back and neck. Earlier this year, she had a bone density scan that showed a major reversal of the disease.

“The scan showed that in my hips and back, I now have osteopenia, not osteoporosis,” Susan exudes. “That’s incredible. I’m hoping by the time I get the next scan, it will show I no longer have osteoporosis in my neck either.

“It’s not uncommon for someone my age to have osteopenia. So for me to have reversed this and to have osteopenia instead of osteoporosis in my hips and back is just amazing. That shows you right there that this works.

“That’s why I tell my friends about it and wish more people would try it. For me, it just makes sense. And Bryan and all the people who work there are great. They’re really passionate about what they do because they know the potential this has, and they’re excited by it.

“You see that come out when they’re working with their clients, which is another thing that I really like about it. They don’t treat you like a client; they treat you like you’re a member of their family, and I like that.”
