Nurses are among the hardest working, most dedicated people I know.
They also have one of the more physically demanding professions.
When I started working with Naomi she was dealing with chronic pain from a back issue and had spent years doing Physical Therapy and learning how to move to avoid re-injury.
She began Personal Training because she had completed Physical Therapy but knew the best way to keep herself from hurting was to stay active. She needed the right program and guidance to be sure she wasn’t doing moves that would make her back pain worse.
She also had a passion for dancing, specifically her native Polynesian dance. In order to continue to perform and pursue her passion she needed to be physically strong and injury free.
Not only has Naomi been able to continue dancing, she’s lost nearly 20 pounds and 12 inches and lowered her body fat 2%.
Personal Training isn’t just about weight loss, for Naomi it is about staying physically active so she can provide care to others in her nursing career and so she may pursue her dance passion without being sidelined by injuries.
She’s as dedicated to her physical fitness as she is to her job and her family. Naomi shows up for every session ready to work, even if she’s put in a 12 hours shift the day before or been up early caring for her young granddaughter.
That work ethic has paid off in many ways, and is allowing Naomi to go after her goals and dreams and live life without hesitation.
