Let me get one thing straight before I wander off into my series of blogs- I LOVE my work. I love movement, watching people move, helping others to improve themselves and feel my energy and honesty are a valuable asset to not only my clients, but also consumers. I want to improve how people move, feel and function in their daily lives and always strive to be creative, safe and most importantly scientifically founded with my exercise and workout advice.
I understand that each person is an individual coming from different genetic backgrounds, past/present exercise historys, energy and attitude levels. I also realize that what motivates one can demotivate another and there are many layers to peel back to find what works. Oftentimes I discover individuals looking for simple solutions to very complex issues, such as quick gimmicks for weight loss, magic exercises to melt off fat in target areas, or just plain nutrition strategies to make them look like a model on the cover of a magazine.
It is my job to sort all of this out and offer the best advice, education and safest mode of exercise for individual abilities and fitness levels. I am extremely honest and do not blow smoke up anyone’s butt to get them to do something. I do however, let you know where I stand as a fitness professional and will be the first to express my opinion on fitness fads, poorly written or misrepresented fitness articles (like the one I just saw in Fitness magazine by a so-called trainer to the stars, more like a moron who needs a lesson on the laws of gravitational forces), or just general insights that I have on my work or training.
I want all of you to feel supported, but also understand that I do have a side of me that can be sarcastic, blunt, or misconstrued as unsupportive when I tell you how I feel about things. This blog is my opportunity to share myself with everyone and hopefully shed a new perspective on things for the clients and consumers. So, don’t be taken back by my words, instead try to see my side of things and then give me your feedback.
There- I’ve shared my few words of warning. I look forward to your comments and concerns.
