I had an appointment with a personal trainer today (a Scottish gentleman named Ross Gilbert) who really taught me a lot about myself. He was very kind as he explained many things to me that I can do to improve the strength in my legs as I prepare for double knee replacement surgery in a few years.
He helped me see that I need to treat my body as a complete, well oiled unit and maintain it by exercising it as such. He was advocating pure movement that is natural to the body versus exercising isolated muscles using only machines. What he told me made sense to me and made me feel more enthusiastic about my approach to my fitness plan and the tasks I have placed before myself. It was a wonderful session of self-discovery and gleaning knowledge of how to improve my future "healthy" self.
