Job Title: Staff Assistant III Department: The Neurological Clinical Research Institute (NCRI) Years at MGH: 3 Team: "Active Arms"
Reason Joined Be Fit: I joined because, though I love to walk, I have never been big on exercise. As I am getting older I realize I really need help with body strength, flexibility, and posture.
How Be Fit Helped: It has helped me tremendously to get the results I was looking for. I am dedicated to filling out my logs (also wasn’t a favorite thing to do) because I get to see where I have improved and where I still have room to improve and can look back on previous weeks to see the changes. I get joy out of seeing my steps add up throughout the day and then jogging in front of the TV or dancing around my apartment until I hit the number I want – it is exhilarating.
Favorite Thing About Be Fit: Definitely training with Damien. He helped me with constant praise and support. I have included a limerick I wrote for him: I am the result of what a patient, supportive, encouraging and amazing trainer you are Exercise was new to me – but you listened to my needs and magically brought me far I didn’t even know what a foam roller was, I never thought I could do 50 laps in the pool But you knew just what I needed and slowly but surely I am no longer an exercise fool And have been hailed by you to be a Be Fit superstar
