Chronicles of an Iron Belle
Hey there, my name is Kerry (that’s me in the picture up there) glad you are here. I have been a health nut for a while but never truly realized my passion for it until a few years ago. I have been a massage therapist for over ten years and known for my ability to ‘torture’ people. The CIA wasn’t hiring so I pursued an Infant Massage Therapy certification in an attempt to figure out when things start going awry as we develop and stopping them before they cause trouble when we are adults. Person after person would come to me seeking relief from their pain and all I could do was iron it out with a massage, the rest of the work was up to them and I soon found that not too many go to the gym and know what to do or have a personal trainer who gives them a good program. A major contributor to this issue is the lack of communication from the client to the professional out of ignorance of their own body all because we are so busy with the other demands of life to even listen to what our body is telling us. This blog will give you that understanding.

All that background stuff brought me to today: a certified personal trainer who LOVES kettlebell training (my fave move is the Turkish Get Up), loves running, and loves acting like a kid (I have three!). I hope you enjoy the journey with me as we tackle understanding our bodies and how to get the most of your time at the gym, beat injury, figure out what muscles are doing what, and have a few laughs along the way. Understand that I am a massage therapist and personal trainer, not a medical doctor so the advice I share here is strictly that: advice.

Please drop me a line though, I would love to hear all about you!

Take care,

Kerry M. Davis LMT, CIMT, CPT

The current issue of The Nation just arrived in the mail, and I was appalled to read an article on the overwhelming rejection by Europe of the proposed austerity measures. The appalled part came when I read what’s recently happened in Greece.





Greece, for anyone not familiar with World War II history, was virtually crushed under the Nazi heel. The people were starved and beaten into submission, and it was one of the Germans’ less benign occupations.





Now comes word that in the recent elections, Greece "became the first European country occupied during World War II to elect neo-Nazis – twenty-one members of the racist Golden Dawn party – to its Parliament. Their leader, Nikolaos Mihaloliakos, dedicated his victory to ‘the brave boys in the black shirts’. ‘Those who slander us’, he barked, ‘those who betray the fatherland should be afraid: we’re coming’."





Golden Dawn apparently won votes throughout much of Greece, even in districts that experienced massacres during the Nazi era. More frightening yet is that much of this support was garnered from among young people – roughly one in ten who voted went far right.





Wow – Europe is beginning to look and sound much as it did in the early 1930’s, and that’s very worrisome. Turns out that Santayana may yet be proved right: "Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it".
