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

I am discovering a lot of "new" things in this, the "middle" of life.  First thing that pops into mind is that I hope to heaven that this is the middle, because that would mean that I have approximately another 5 decades around here.  Originally I was thinking that I had passed the middle 10 or maybe 15 years ago.

Another thing that is new to me now is my perspective.  Like now I don't think 50 is old.  I don't even think 60 is old.  I really think people that have lived this long, and have a nice, fair amount of happiness and joy in their lives should be exempt from feeling old.  And we have something to offer the world-ourselves!

To get to this stage usually entails a lot of bumps and bruises, and with them a lot of lessons learned.  I once read something about smart people learning from their own mistakes, but wise people learning from others' mistakes.  As a parent I tried to get my children to learn from my mistakes, but alas, it didn't seem to work that way.  It never worked for me either, but that never kept my mom from trying.  I guess that's why wisdom is so precious.  It's rare, and what's rare is precious.

So as I get older, and as the "hard way" would have it, wiser, I try not to use that wisdom like a club.  And I'll admit sometimes I really, really want to.  Usually it's better to use it like a feather, or a tissue pressed against a tear, or an extended hand of friendship.  Wisdom doesn't need to be flouted to exist or to thrive.  It just has to be nourished to flourish.
