Shattered Dream or Opportunity?

by Cat
(Ottawa, Canada)

Hi there/Im 45 and was building up my courage to take my training as a personal trainer later this year. It's been my dream and passion for quite some time. Yesterday my dream was shattered: My doctor told me that I have spinal osteoporosis and can no longer lift heavy weights, etc. I was devasted!

Today I was thinking as I researched exercises to help those with my condition: Is it at all possible for me to get my training regardless and specialize in osteoporosis?

My love of healthy nutrition, fitness and health in general is prompting me not to give up!

Help - any and all suggestions welcome....

Opportunity!
by: Michele

I'm not really qualified to answer as I'm not yet in the business, but it seems to me that you would be ideal for the job. You will be wanting to do whatever you can to maintain your own health and fitness despite your condition, and you will be a model to your clients, who will more readily respond to somebody who truly knows what they themselves are experiencing. Go for it!
