One of the nurses that I used to work with in the pain clinic, many years ago, used to work three jobs. She worked at our clinic three days a week, at another clinic the other two, and every single day she taught aerobics and other classes in various gyms around the city. She was just a ball of energy, and she still is! She actually left the pain clinic that we worked in together just before I did, and when I started working in the hospital that I’m currently employed at, who should I run into but my old friend.
I think it was 1999, or 2000, when we still worked together at the pain clinic, that she began to talk about training for a new fitness training course. The course she was taking was a mix of boxing and kick boxing. I know she traveled out of the Country to do her training and I believe that she went to the original creator of this new form of exercise, Dean Lister, who first opened his fitness club in 1998. Dean Listers first club was called The boxing Club and I’ve just learned that it’s been expanding nationally throughout the US.
My nursing friend is still going strong with her courses and I’ve just learned that she’s opening her second gym now too. It’s interesting to think that she got her start with Dean Listers newly created fitness regime.
When I start to feel better I’m going to get in touch with my friend and see if I can join her new gym. She’s an excellent fitness trainer and I’d trust her advice. Since movement these days pretty much causes pain in my abdomen I’d have to start off with gentle exercises but I’m sure with her knowledge I’d get back into getting into shape without hurting myself or causing my tummy to hurt more.
