The partnership with James began in December 2009. He made it clear to me during our workout sessions that he understands my goals and has embraced them. Together we may experiment with adaptive exercises, but I am not a specimen and James has never treated me as one. He is courteous and has a thoughtful professionalism. He periodically checks in to gain feedback for exercise progression and fatigue levels as we work.

Like most people who have a disability, I want to be involved, active, and participate. I have always refused to be isolated and my parents constantly supported my full participation. They knew I wanted to be “in” and included, so they helped me find the methods for that to happen by means of modified equipment or a modified approach.

The Holidays are Here

It is November and the holiday season is officially here!  For many people the holidays are a joy filled time with family, friends and food – lots of food.  Between shopping at busy stores for gifts, taking the always-anticipated annual family photo, making yummy treats and traveling to visit relatives, people become consumed with the chaos of the season.  The result of chaos is loosing sight of what should be priority #1 – taking care of yourself!

Tagged with:

I find it amazing how much more a video can impact an individual than simply reading a story in the newspaper. I am constantly finding myself intrigued at the YouTube videos posted by my friends, family and co-workers. Some of the most touching and motivating moments caught on camera and posted online for millions of viewers to see can be thought provoking.

A Body In Motion

Tagged with:

Many years ago Reebok ran a great commercial based on Newton’s Laws of motion.  The take away from that commercial was “A body in motion, stays in motion and a body at rest stays at rest”.  I wonder if Newton knew that within his statement was the perfect exercise prescription!

Why Such a Lack in Vigorous Activity Among Americans?

Why Such a Lack in Vigorous Activity Among Americans? Tagged with:

I live in the city, and there isn’t much chance of me doing a technical mountain climb. But I do get out with my family on the bike trail along Lake Michigan almost every day. Every day there are hundreds of us out there running, walking, wheeling and moving in every way imaginable along the Chicago Parks and Recreation trail that runs 36 miles along the lakeshore.
