New adventures

Well what a long time it has been since I put up a post! I feel like my blog is so bare to compared to what it could be. I now officially have my first two clients and I can not wait to get started with them. I have known both of these guys for a few years now and I'm really excited to be helping them better their health and fitness. Starting this Friday I will also be working with my grandmother. She has to be the most stubborn, hard nosed old lady I know. I can only hope to be half as tough as she is. She is currently 84 years old and last year had a double bi-pass and during which she had two strokes. She totally lost use of the left side of her body (she's a lefty btw) and was on a breathing and feeding tube for a long time. Things weren't looking so good to say the least. Now a year later she is up and walking with a walker and able to do many basic functions. She was just currently released back home from a rehabilitation center and I will be continuing to work with her to help with the quality of life she will live. There is no doubt in my mind she will be back to walking normal with time. I also hope to she her be able to get up and down on the floor. Nothing fast or athletic just the normal, functional movement found in life. At the rate shes going I'll bet she will hit the big 100 before I know it.

Sorry no WOD today. I will hopefully be finished unpacking everything this weekend and be back hitting it hard again. It will have a little twist as I hurt my shoulder during the move and will be scaling my workouts to be done just with my right arm. This weekend I did learn to tumble on my non-dominant tumbling side with one hand and worked on dive rolls and one handed handstands. Well till next time!
