As my 40th birthday came closer and closer I was more mindful on how my body was aging. I was more mindful of the fact that I was never really very athletic in any way. A lifestyle choice I was now regretting.
Like many folks I joined a variety of gyms, I took yoga, I even did a learn to run program.
I would have fantastic periods of dedication and then I would waver and quit.
I decided that I wanted to find some form of exercise that I would be both passionate and committed to for the rest of my life.
Since my first session with Joel I was hooked. The challenge of it lay in the simplicity of the work. I am not suggesting it is easy, but there was no need for fancy equipment or moves. Just wraps, gloves and dedication.
From here, I started to develop a focus and mind body connection that I have never had before. For the first time in my entire life I was comfortable in my body.
That was in the Spring of 2017 and I have not looked back.
Here are my thoughts and experiences from today.
