The Heuga Center for Multiple Sclerosis
Additional recommended knowledge
Former Olympic ski racer, Jimmie Heuga, founded The Heuga Center in 1984 to teach people with multiple sclerosis how to use exercise to help manage their life with this chronic disease. He wanted to share the principles that transformed his life from one of despair to one of health and well-being.
Heuga was diagnosed with MS in 1970, at the height of his racing career. At the time, people with MS were advised to avoid physical activity. Defying conventional wisdom, Heuga began a program of exercise, nutrition, and psychological motivation and found not only his physical condition, but his outlook on life improved
Jimmie's success revolutionized the management of MS. He transformed his frustration into productivity, reclaiming his life and showing the medical community that there was, indeed, another way to live with MS.
