Chronicles of an Iron Belle
Hey there, my name is Kerry (that’s 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 ‘torture’ people. The CIA wasn’t 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. To see the kind of work I do (with my hunk of a hubby) click here.

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

Take care,

Kerry M. Davis LMT, CIMT, CPT

Daydrion Taylor

There are certain names in U-M history that when mentioned immediately bring to mind a certain game or, in some cases, a distinct moment in a game.   You probably know that Daydrion Taylor is one of them:







Damn.  A lot has changed in football since 1997 and I doubt announcers would talk about a hit that way today.   While No way the announcers talk about a hit that way today.  listening to

I imagine for many in Happy Valley they remember Bob Stephenson, the guy on the other end of that collision, for that play as well:Bob Stephenson PSU didn’t give out game balls after Judgment Day (via  PA Observer-Reporter)

The PA Observer-Reporter ran a piece on Stephenson back on December 24, 1997 and he discussed the play:



“I remember the catch and turning upfield.  Joe Jurevicius was blocking Woodson and I’m thinking to myself, ‘I have room to run.’  I didn’t see anybody else,” Stephenson said.   That’s all he remembers – until he regained consciousness.

“I knew where I was, but I thought, ‘What’s going on?  Why are all these people around me?’” Stephenson said.

Stephenson said he felt fine.  He was helped to the sidelines, where he stood and joked with this teammates.

“The adrenaline was still flowing,” he said. Twenty minutes later, the euphoria died.

“When they took time into the locker room, I started getting sick and I got a headache.” Stephenson said.

He was diagnosed with a Grad 3 concussion, the worst according to NCAA guidelines.  Its symptoms include loss of consciousness, temporary amnesia and nausea.

“Some of my teammates have told me they thought I was dead.  If not, they thought I’d be paralyzed.”



Last June Marcus Ray talked about the hit on WTKA and provided some very interesting context on not only the ‘97 team, he also discussed that hit and what probably precipitated Taylor’s aggressiveness:



For more check out this clip (via WolverineHistorian) of Taylor talking about the collision a year later, including commentary from Bo who called it the hardest hit he’s ever seen.  

Me too.
