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.

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

Take care,

Kerry M. Davis LMT, CIMT, CPT

Toy car abandoned in the median on Oxford street in Rochester.

The early crisp February sun screams through the packed houses on Oxford Street in Rochester. What lies before me but a toy car, frosted from the frigid night. No visible owner, it sits lonely, desolate, and questionable in the median for the morning commuters to ignore. I take the moment to capture. These things I find intriguing, and I ask questions, or create scenarios as to how this car ended up here, who left it, why it was left, etc.... You can see things out of place all the time along side a road, most people ignore them as white noise and a eye sore, but I see curiosity and imagination.







To process I decided to make a "Bleach Bypass". This is done by making a copy of your background and making the blending mode "overlay" (makes it super contrasty) and turning the opacity down to about 30%. Then you make a channel mixer adjustment layer, click monochrome and play with the three sliders to get desired tone, then turning that opacity down to 30% as well. It might take some fooling around but you can make your own changes as needed.
