"As someone whom has always enjoyed being physically active, I also understand how frustrating it can be when that ability is taken away- for whatever reason. Stress, injury, and illness can all take a toll on the body at any age or fitness level. I've experienced my fair share of injury over the years, and I've watched friends and family both suffer and triumph over their own. That's why I'm dedicated to keeping an active, healthy lifestyle, and doing whatever I can to help those around me successfully do the same. I can't "fix" anything. But I do believe that God created the human body to do amazing things. I'm here to assist and if you're ready to work with me, we can help it to heal the way its meant to."
