My Fitness Journey Part 2

Here is a picture of me getting some socially distanced air during my quarantine.

My fitness journey. How and why I decided to heal others.

I started my career at Crunch Fitness Gym in Park Slope, Brooklyn. 3 years later, I was hired as the assistant manager and Personal Trainer at Fitness Together, a personal training studio. When that studio changed ownership, I started my own traveling fitness instruction business, called Bene-Fits P.T.
I have been self-employed for 11 years. I decided not to open up my own studio because many of my clients
have issues with mobility. It makes my clients lives so much easier when I can come to them.

In May of 2017, I noticed that my hip hurt and my gait was off. I thought it was just an over use injury,
common in my field. When I saw my first X-rays of my injured hip, I was dismayed. I had bone-on-bone arthritis, most likely due to scoliosis that I have had my whole life. On October 25th, 2019, I underwent hip replacement surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery. My surgeon, Dr. McLawhorn, is a total genius. He gave me a new hip and straightened out my scoliosis by making one of my legs a little longer during my operation.
