Yeah, so I guess I've been gone for a while. Here are some things:
I went to a giant fitness conference in Toronto this past weekend. There were about 4500 people there. Apparently it's the biggest of it's kind in the world. It was pretty sweet. It was three solid days of lectures and workshops and plenty of eye candy let me tell you. Saturday night my company put on this huge fancy pants gala and if you think three solid days of hot male personal trainers was cool, try picturing them all in suits. Hello. Oh yeah, and I learned a lot.
My goals were twofold. One was to learn a lot, which I did. And one was to pick up some dude at the gala, which I didn't because, apparently, being the only sober person at a fancy gala is not as fun as it would seem. So I left early. Which makes me my parents. Whatever.
The best part of the conference was realizing that yes, I do want to specialize in training pre and post natal women. I took a few courses on it and I loved them. AND, when I got home, my books had arrived for my certification course that I'm taking in November so I figure that was Fate telling me I was going in the right direction. Thanks Fate. You're alright.
What I want to do in the future is open my own training studio and train pre and post natal moms and, then eventually, their kids. Women and children have the highest obesity rate right now and childhood obesity itself in North America is at the highest it's ever been, so I think that's a good area to focus on. I'm pretty pumped to say the least.
All in good time my friends, all in good time. I predict good things.
