Just a phenomenal Saturday today with my wife. Got body fat tested, had a donut from @grebes_bakery, partner WOD at @creamcitycrossfit, breakfast at @colectivocoffee, nap with @louisandmilosz on the floor of the living room, zucchini bread made with fresh zucchini from our garden, ~30 mile bike ride, beer garden, dinner, froyo...didn’t pull out my phone as much as normal which shows me I was in the moment and enjoying spending time with my wife.
With all that said, wanted to repost this post to remind you all out there...if you’re dealing with pain or issues in the gym, find a quality practitioner who will help you stay active and working toward your goals, not simply hinder you.
Find one who understands your movement practice and how important it is to you.
Find one who can relate to your goals and training methods.
We’re out there.
I’m one of them.

As physical therapists we should be movement optimists. We should be focused on how we can keep people as active as possible, and how to continue being engaged in activities that give them meaning
We have the skills to be able to assess and appropriately modify activity to allow people to continue to participate in what they love
Far too often we have seen people just shut down clients activities at the first sign of discomfort or pain and you can literally see the hope be sucked out of the person
Are there times where you have to eliminate something? Yes, of course there is. But, the goal should always be to find away to modify activity first. If that is truly not possible, shutting it down for a period of time may be necessary
