Exercise is more than just burning calories, exercise can improve your quality of life, so keep moving!
My mission is to educate others in the many ways exercise can improve their health and quality of life. For example: Exercise can lower blood sugar and blood pressure, improve bone density and even help improve some of the issues that come with cancer treatments – the nausea and fatigue, as well as the anxiety and depression that are so common.
My decision to become a personal trainer was officially made when I found significant evidence of how exercise could have improved my grandmother’s quality of life – and nobody had ever suggested she do anything but “take it easy”.
I spent several years as my grandmother’s caregiver while she was struggling with diabetes, complications from osteoporosis, and finally pancreatic cancer. While researching her general conditions, I found vague references about the benefits of “keeping active”, but not enough information in a useable form to be much use to me and my grandmother.
Later, as I did more research to improve my own health and try to avoid the health issues that run in my family I kept coming back to fitness – strength, cardio and balance training.
