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

Fall is in the air in the Finger Lakes.  No matter what the calendar says, I can tell by the smell of the air and the fact that it's still dark when my alarm goes off.
I personally would enjoy fall much more if it didn't come right before winter.  It's such a beautiful time of year, and I always really try not to hold it's placement against it, but sometimes it does get the best of me.
I love everything about being outdoors, always have, but I hate feeling cold.  And here, it gets very cold in winter, last year notwithstanding.  It keeps me in unless I have to go out.  Winter keeps my fun to a minimum because I just don't like going out in it! 
Everything, like bringing home a trunk-load of groceries for instance, is such a drag when it's cold.  And if there's snow-forget it!  My balance isn't what it used to be so the likelihood of my taking a fall and injuring myself is substantially higher nowadays.  I already have enough aches and pains without taking a fall.
Most of the material I've been reading lately has been about growth and being a more "positive" person.  I suppose if I'm to learn to apply what I've read to my life, I may want to start by adjusting my attitude about winter.  I can't say if that is even possible, but I think I may be able to focus on enjoying the season that precedes it.  The one that is rich with vibrant colors, rich textures, and the satisfaction of looking back on all of the wonderful, family filled fun of the summer.
