It's been a little bit since I have blogged. I've been very busy and involved intensely in getting the Couch to 5K program off the ground at my local Anytime Fitness. On top of all of that, I have been in therapy or seeing the orthopedic specialist. Now I know why my shoulder has had so much pain lately.
I have a rotator cuff problem.
I will know more next Tuesday but, while it is painful, it is good to know what I am up against. I've lived with this problem for years but only recently has it gotten worse where my day to day activities at work have really been impeded.
I am meeting with the gym manager for final approval of the c25k class schedule of training and the framework for the running clinic and presentation I will be doing for the new runners. She has also approved my web page I set up as a point of reference for the program
The manager is also in favor of me doing presentations similar to what I gave last month except diving deeper and making individual subjects the focal point of the presentation. Next one will be on having a right relationship with the scale, understanding the nature and common causes of weight fluctuations, keeping your focus and so on. Ultimately these general presentations will foster rapport with the clients and ultimately will slowly transform into a weight loss support group. you can't just come out of nowhere and suddenly SHAZAM, insta-group. Trust has to be earned and confidence in your abilities lead has to be solwly built.
On the academic front, I have purchased the ACE Academy Elite study program complete with seminars, practice tests and quizzes as well as email and phone support from coaches. It is my goal to fast track my personal trainers certification and get it this year. Then, I am planning on moving right away into studying for the ACE Health Coach credential.Once certified as a health coach, programs offered are re-imbursable to participants through some corporate wellness programs here in the area.
BTW.. in case you missed it, my Sparkradio interview went really well. Here is a link so you can download and listen if you want....
Select the link "March 03, 2014 -Learning To Love Exercise" to listen to the MP3.
Anyway, if you have any suggestions on what I can do to make the site better, let me know. I will be adding more info as we get closer to actual class time. I am also trying to keep it clean and simple / easy to navigate.
thanks... gotta run...
