PT with a Health Conditin.
by: Anonymous

I am 54 with a degree in Physical Education and a PT Certification in Health Conditions and Exercise.
I have Multiple Sclerosis. I hope my limitations serve as an encouragement to others to KEEP MOVING and maintain the best health possible. I think you will be a great encouragement and sensitive to the needs of those who may be imperfect but still want to reach their personal best. So much about personal training is our knowledge of how the body works and the motivation we can give to others. God bless you for your desire to help.

Overcoming challenges
by: Helen

Congrats on your goal! I was in and out of a wheelchair in my 20's and 30's due to a hereditary inflammatory arthritis that destroyed my knee cartilege. Now 55, I recently had replacements on both knees, one of which had to be re-done. I also have benign hypermobility syndrome which, while making me flexible, has stretched out my ligaments causing problems in different parts of my body. Believe it or not, my goal is to retire and start a personal training business! I feel my experiences have given me understanding and compassion, and I hope to work with seniors and disabled. For now I am building up my own fitness, riding a bike, going up stairs, working with a trainer, and learning everything I can. I hope to hear from others who have overcome physical challenges and are succeeding at training.
