On a more personal note, I thoroughly enjoy strength training, and the numerous benefits garnered from incorporating it into my workout routine. A young lady who has since become one of my dearest friends introduced me to weightlifting about 7 years ago while living in Germany. Initially the “free weight area” was overwhelming, and quite frankly, a bit intimidating.

Primarily because I wasn't confident in my ability to properly utilize the equipment, and I was self-conscience about my weight.

Fortunately, through her support I learned how to manipulate my way around the “free weight area,” and more importantly how to lift using correct form. She was instrumental in building my confidence, and I’m forever grateful! Make Moves That Make A Difference (MMTMAD)!
