While I have BIG plans for this site the reality is that I’m still a college student, an officer in a club, work as a Personal Trainer and have friends and family I’d like to see. As a result, this page has fallen to the bottom of my to-do list, unfortunately. BUT THE SEMESTER IS OVER! It’s time to get back into the groove of posting and filling this space with content!
Secondly, you may be asking well I get researching and writing an article takes time but what about your workout of the day posts? ———–weelllll, I kinda haven’t been working out. (GASP!) Whether it was because I wasn’t giving my body enough rest in between my workouts, not getting enough sleep or not eating properly I have been fighting a stream of injuries and bugs (ACHOO!) Slowly though, I am getting back into my workouts while being more conscious of the food I’m eating, my stress levels, and how much sleep I’m getting. *WOD posts coming soon*
Lastly, I’ve been working on other projects————————————— ——–I’m the type of person that if I’m not learning something, I feel I’m wasting the precious limited time I have in this life. Whether I’m surfing Youtube watching TEDtalks, Vox or Vice documentaries, there is no subject I won’t learn. It usually involves the YouTube autoplay and curiosity. The biggest reason why is that I don’t want to look back at my life one day and realized I wasted so much time on things I didn’t care about.
NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine), one of the leading names in fitness education and certifications, estimated 80% of adults experience low-back pain, 21% experience shoulder injuries and there are between 80,000 to 100,000 cases of ACL injuries(1). Lots of people got problems is what I’m saying. As a personal trainer, it makes sense why I decided to focus on this (FYI I passed the exam this past Saturday woohoo!) Many of my current clients suffer from pain and I want to help.
While this page is starting off slow and my audience is tiny, everyone at the top had to start at the bottom first.
