Welcome to the All Journeys Fitness blog page.
Thanks for joining me!
I never imagined that I would be starting a blog page, but here we are! I recently decided to start this website in order to interact with people just like you. I appreciate you taking the time to visit our site. I hope you find something of value while you’re here and look forward to connecting with you. One of the reasons I decided to start this company is so that I can reach more people. I interact with people every day, but there is just so much more that I would like to provide that doing it with the internet just makes sense.
I am a physical therapist by training and have been working in the healthcare industry for the past 5 years. I have been able to treat in several states across the country. Although each region has their differences, one thing always remains the same. The more I interact with patients and their families the more I realize the importance of listening. I think that's the most important part of my job actually. Really listening to what each patient is telling me and communicating with them effectively. Building relationships with my patients and clients is the most fun part of what I do.
My personal experience with health and fitness started at an early age, playing softball and football when I was 6 or 7 years old. As I continued playing sports through college the rush of the competition along with the camaraderie and struggle of practices are things that I'll always remember.
I never really realized the impact nutrition and lifestyle choices have on our body's ability to perform until late in my college career. After taking a few nutrition courses I began to experiment with my own diet and wouldn't you know it... Started to physically notice some changes as I made small changes in my eating. Whether just doing everyday activities, walking your dog, or participating in recreation, what you put into your body makes a HUGE difference.
This is also something I discuss with my patients in the physical therapy setting. The impact that lifestyle choices have on our ability to recover and heal is tremendous. I would argue that it's even more important than the rehabilitation that you're doing. Sleep, stress management, nutrition and activity all play vital roles.
I'm so grateful for the experiences that I've had as well as the opportunity to create this blog and this site. I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes and how it is shaped by the interaction with everyone who visits.
Thanks again and have a great day,
