I’ve either got it or I’ve seen it
I’ve been surrounded by people with disabilities my entire adult life. Friends who are blind, diabetic, asthmatic, in a wheelchair, with mental health issues, car accident injuries…you name it, I’ve seen it first hand. In myself or others nearby. Life changes quickly, and one must adapt.
Some people seem naturally able to adapt well. Others don’t, or they need a little convincing to keep going. Some struggle with maintaining enthusiasm. Fitness trainers are trained for the psychosocial as well as physical training aspects of fitness services. I’m a certified personal trainer (ACE, 2016), and I also have a psychology and sociology degree that gives me a great context for understanding life’s quirky situations.
