"TODAY'S CHALLENGE WILL BE TOMORROW'S WARM-UP"
(Loo-Doh-veek blah blah blah)
I have been a certified trainer through PTA GLOBAL, ISSA, NASM, NCSF, IFPA, NAUTILUS, SCHWINN, LES MILLS, 24 HOUR FITNESS and APEX for the past 22 years, prior to which I developed curriculum at Rockhurst University and also taught Music, Art, Leisure Skills, and French at the Menninger Institute of Psychiatry. I am a Gen X-er and Oui-Oui, I am French. I understand movement and aim to teach how your different body parts function so that movement makes sense to you. Muscles move bones, not machines. Don't learn machines, learn movement! have decades of experience dealing with eating disorders as well as disordered eating patterns, all of which can be resolved. It's little science and lots of footsteps, all taken one after another. My work starts with the behaviors WE CHOSE to take on and the ones that are or have been thrust upon us by others (some psychology here....) I work with my clients to identify their different roles as public persons, workers, stressors, exercisers, shoppers, cooks, eaters, parents, etc... and extricate patterns in behaviors which interfere with the achievement of certain goals, health being the quintessential one. Being healthy is a process which starts with discovering who we really are now and how it affects our body, where we want to go/who do we want to be (modify behavior and patterns) and developing winning strategies to reach our many health and fitness goals. "Healthy" is not a look, it is a feeling.. So is fatigue...
