This is Dr Barbara, aka DB. DB is my chiropractor and I am her trainer. DB has been snapping my bones back into place for years but it wasn’t until this last February that DB finally succumb to my magical ways and came out for a sweat with me.
At first DB and I worked out just one day a week at 9:30 in the morning. We would meet at a park on the top of a hill. Each day I watched as DB dragged her fleece clad body up the hill seeming to dread what she was about to endure.
Aside from the initial dragging up the hill, DB was always excited to workout and happy once she started moving. DB especially likes to get competitive, often with me and even herself. It’s fun to watch and to participate in (especially when she tries to sprint me).
Now, DB and I work out two days a week and she even manages to get herself to our workouts by 8:15 am! Just the other day DB informed me that she felt as though there had been a “paradigm shift.” She confess that until recently she really didn’t like working out but now… something had changed. “I really look forward to working out” she said. Frankly, when DB said this I was happy to hear it, but focused on keeping her moving before she changed her mind.
While DB has always been very appreciative of me and often sends me new clients, I was especially touched by a text message she sent the other day.
“Hey Kelley. Just wanted to tell you that you rock!!! I really appreciate your encouragement and support and positive attitude. This paradigm shift in me is amazing and I totally attribute it to you!!!! So thank you!!!! You’re the best!”
Ah… shucks DB!
