Class has started. Either Fall is still here, or spring has started; hard to tell. :)
As expected, sciences are hard for me. I remember why I am here, learning about the details of how the body works. That helps me relax into it a little, as I spend hours each day (literally), trying to get the joint actions and muscle performance knowledge into my brain.
Off to the gym. Without movement, my thinker doesn't work as well as it does with. Joining classes is a good choice for me. Today? Zumba with a new instructor; I'm excited,
Off to another day of adventures!
Time flies. In 2 weeks I get to start my exercise science class. I am understanding how much it and all my classes will help me with improving your health. Learning the body... it'll take a lifetime, of course. ACC has much to offer, as does the University, how wonderful is that?
Meanwhile, "winter" is here, and am in love with it! I moved here to be in a better climate for my health, and I certainly do not miss the constant grey drizzle gloom of the NW! I miss the amazing city of Portland, and the awake individuals there, yet I am overjoyed to be able to live in this weather now! The joints are grateful.
I may begin working with Silver Sneakers soon, which will not take away my time from my personal clients, of course. It's just always good to educate myself in all ways possible, so applying there is another way to continue my exploration of health, fitness, the body, nutrition,... LIFE.
It's not easy being "middle-aged," as people seem to call it. One advantage, for me, is knowing that if I keep moving, things will always feel better.
Chronic pain and illness need not stop us from living. Let's remember that, and take it one day at a time.
Whew! The move from Portland, OR has certainly brought me to healthier places! :) I am happy to be here, and look forward to meeting my new communities.
My work with older adults in Portland has shown me my current path, I am now looking for those who want some support with finding back to health, a more ideal weight and more smiles. I offer one-on-one personal training and small group fitness classes. I work with any age and am highly interested in working with those with chronic pain, RA, OA, fibro, IBS, etc., in order to help find a way to live with the least pain possible.
I also am a Zumba instructor, so should you be looking for that, I will happily teach a Zumba class, or a Zumba Gold class (low impact), or a Kids Zumba class.
My Fitness Technology education was filled with anatomy, movement theory and group fitness instruction. In addition, I have the ACE group fitness certificate and the above-mentioned Zumba fitness certificates.
I will work with you at your home, in a small gym, or outdoors. The choice is yours and also depends on your goals and your situation.
