Learning In Stead

I’m not going to sugarcoat this for you – starting again is not easy. Especially when you have a permanent injury. But even without that, its difficult to get back on track and stay there for any period of time after you’ve been all willy-nilly with yourself for months.

This summer, I couldn’t teach. I re-aggravated my back and had to take a few months off. Yeah, it totally sucked ass. But, I was away, I did do one thing that was productive. I took the time to learn about my injury, and others, and got my Orthopedic Exercise Specialist certification. I used the opportunity learn how to treat back, shoulder, knee and other injuries while still promoting exercise and healing. It was a terrific experience! Thank you ACE!

My latest certification. I forgot to change my name on my accounts. Argh!

I’m so glad I did that because it not only gave me education I can use with my clients, but now, much of it applies to myself. It can only make me a better instructor and trainer and allow me to partner with a wider variety of clients. It’s a win-win situation!

So, even though things may not be right, that does not mean that you cannot make big strides toward something great. If you can’t run, walk; if you can’t swim, float, if you can’t teach, learn.
