The Red Aisle


When someone follows or LIKES anything in Social Media, you get a little Kick of excitement, a little Pep in your soul. There is a happy flutter in your body that makes you feel that what you are doing is touching others, enough for them to LIKE or FOLLOW You. In this case, I sure hope you Like or Follow my Blog. I do a little mini workout at the bottom of the Blog.

When you LIKE what I write, it makes me want to write more. I write about fitness and my experience as a fitness and alignment trainer with a booth in the local FLEA Market (BLUE AISLE #49). What I see as I watch folks walk by my booth is really sad. First the aging posture with the head down, the feet turned out, knees pointed inward and one hand grabbing a backside. Most can not make it around the entire market. I get a bit lucky as I have a bench in front of my booth where folks can rest/collapse.  They are sort of forced to watch my videos on the flat screen that talk about how good posture leads to less pain and a youthful look.  I hope to change that walk, by teaching how to strengthen the muscles that create good posture. WalkerSizing the Flea Market will really help and helping New Moms get fit for Motherhood with Strollercize.

What I am doing with this BLOG is sharing my life as a once upon a time ‘BIG SHOT’ NYC Personal Trainer. I use to live on the Upper East Side of Manhattan where I raised Three Kids in the NYC Public School System. I would get in a Cap at 5:30am and head to my first of five clients a day. I owned a small boutique personal training studio called ALINE FITNESS.  I lived closed to a lot of BIG WIGS in my neighborhood (They have great WIGS at the Market just saying will write about them later).  I use to train Dr. Henry Kissinger and saw him about five times a week. I kept him FIT FOR LIFE. We talked about his chin dropping to his shoulders too. Well, He is in his 90’s and doing just fine.

My life in NYC was a crazy, wild, and it was a tough, fast paced life  in the BIG APPLE.  After 9/11, I decided to change course for my family.  I set my sites on getting out of NYC and heading to Paradise, Bonita Springs. I write from the view point of a health and fitness professional. I write about what I see, who I meet and why being fit in paradise is so important for all of us. This is where folks come to retire and enjoy life. There is no reason to have pain due to bad posture or not having a sound and proper fitness program to fall into.  It starts with moving in the right direction and learning what it means to be  FIT FOREVER and FINDING THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH at a FLEA MARKET.
