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

Do you want to keep chickens, but don’t have a good place to house them?  A chicken tractor might be your best option!  Many people just don’t have enough acreage or a fenced in area for chickens to pasture, but that shouldn’t stop you from having chickens.  Chicken tractors are moveable housing for chickens, often build out of wood and chicken wire or fencing.  They usually provide a simple covering for shelter.  The great part about chicken tractors or mobile coops is that your chickens can be out in pasture, eating grass, bugs and other natural food, and when that area gets all scratched up, you can just move them to a fresh area.  







You can build a chicken tractor yourself relatively easily (there are many plans available on the internet) and can spend as little or much as you want, depending on how fancy you want to get.  Check out this site for a little inspiration!







We’re looking at plans to possibly build a chicken tractor for our meat chickens this year.  Our laying hens are allowed to free range during the daytime (we have enough space for them to roam freely).  However, the meat birds need to be more contained.  Last year we set up a small fenced area connected to the barn, however they scratched up that area pretty quickly and then just had dirt.  We’d rather them be able to have some pasture, and think a chicken tractor might be the answer!
