Chronicles of an Iron Belle
Hey there, my name is Kerry (thatís me in the picture up there) glad you are here. I have been a health nut for a while but never truly realized my passion for it until a few years ago. I have been a massage therapist for over ten years and known for my ability to Ďtortureí people. The CIA wasnít hiring so I pursued an Infant Massage Therapy certification in an attempt to figure out when things start going awry as we develop and stopping them before they cause trouble when we are adults. Person after person would come to me seeking relief from their pain and all I could do was iron it out with a massage, the rest of the work was up to them and I soon found that not too many go to the gym and know what to do or have a personal trainer who gives them a good program. A major contributor to this issue is the lack of communication from the client to the professional out of ignorance of their own body all because we are so busy with the other demands of life to even listen to what our body is telling us. This blog will give you that understanding.

All that background stuff brought me to today: a certified personal trainer who LOVES kettlebell training (my fave move is the Turkish Get Up), loves running, and loves acting like a kid (I have three!). I hope you enjoy the journey with me as we tackle understanding our bodies and how to get the most of your time at the gym, beat injury, figure out what muscles are doing what, and have a few laughs along the way. Understand that I am a massage therapist and personal trainer, not a medical doctor so the advice I share here is strictly that: advice.

Please drop me a line though, I would love to hear all about you!

Take care,

Kerry M. Davis LMT, CIMT, CPT

Itís not a secret that Iím a fan of the Michigan Football Legends program because itís forcibly re-introduced these names and these eras into the conversation, especially on the week theyíve been honored.† Iíve also witnessed (and in many cases been a part of) the research and publication of fresh materials on these men as a direct result of the Legends program.†† Thatís a good thing– and this stuff will be available for future generations to see.
Speaking of that you might have noticed Iíve been plugging the commemorative Tom Harmon/Notre Dame game program this week.† Call me a #1000SSS shill, but those who read this site understand that I aggressively support projects like that program because the athletic department invested resources to make this a big day, and again, to gather fresh material on Harmon.† Great stories.†† New interviews.† Digitization of epic footage.† Enhancement of old photos (see the program cover).† Et cetera.
As a fan I think this is a case where a few bucks to grab the program is important.† And Iím assuming a lot of what was produced will end up in Schembechler Hall.
I also understand there are critics.† I felt the Twitter flak when the #11, #87, #21 jerseys were re-introduced and Iím feeling a tad groundswell from those that think the #98 should remain on the shelf.†† You could argue that Michigan should be investing, from time to time, in the fresh research on these guys anyway, without having to put the jerseys #s back on the field.† You could argue that the whole end game with the Legends is to make a buck, whether on retro jerseys or whatever.† I get all that.† But again, I think that weíre talking about these guys and given what were seeing producedóit is worth it.
Another consideration is of course for the living families members.† Most the Legends arenít with us anymore.† Brady alluded to that after the game Saturday when I asked him about the #98.† He said, ďObviously we want to make sure we honor the family..Ē†† Think about guys like Mark Harmon, the actor, 24-time reigning Sexiest man alive and son of the soon-to-be Legend.† When, in Markís lifetime, is his old man going to be honored like this again?†† Not going to happen.
And speaking of family, check this out.† Over the past few years Iíve become pals with Ben (or as many like me refer to him, ďBennieĒ) McCreadyóthe godson of the great #47 Bennie Oosterbaan.† Ben was on the field last year when Jake Ryan took the honor of donning the #47.† Since then he and Bennie have a forged a bit of a relationship and after Saturdayís CMU game they hooked up.† Check out captain Ryan trying on this beauty in the shadow of the Glick:
