What is Fischer Fitness?

Facebook seems confused. I keep getting prompted to change the "category" on my business page. I think FB is just not sure exactly what Fischer Fitness is. Sports and Recreation? Massage? Cooking? Periodically I will get comments from family or friends like, "So what are you doing NOW?" or "You do so many different things!". I thought I might try to clarify exactly what this business is all about.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education. Back in the early 90's when I went to college, my official degree was BS in PE, with a concentration in Exercise Science and Pre-Physical Therapy. I have had an obsession with teaching fitness since I started teaching aerobics classes when I was 18. That has remained a constant in my life. In 1997-98, I went to massage school and added that to what I was doing (fitness instruction/personal training). Through the years I have developed a passion for cooking, and because so many of my training clients ask about healthy eating, it seemed natural to add that to my business as well.

More than anything, I want to help people live a full, balanced, happy life. In my opinion, all of the things I do are an essential part of healthy living. We all need to figure out what moves us. Not everyone enjoys going for a run, or going to a gym, but we all need movement in our lives. Many people have given up on cooking because they are just too busy. To those people I would say, Slow down! Take care of yourself. Treat yourself to a massage. Learn how to implement simple healthy meals into your day so that you can spend time around the table with people you love.

I hope your 2017 is starting out beautiful! Take good care of yourselves!
