I love creating a party atmosphere and making people sweat. Every client report telling me that another pound was lost or another point was dropped in blood pressure or cholesterol level makes my day. I get to be part medical professional, part entertainer, and part friend to hundreds of people every week....AND get to do it in comfy clothes while working out! The pay isn't the best, but it also isn't the point. Eventually, preventive health care, i.e. fitness, will have it's proper place in our society. I just hope to still be able to kick a little butt when it happens!
