Chronicles of an Iron Belle
Hey there, my name is Kerry (that’s me in the picture up there) glad you are here. I have been a health nut for a while but never truly realized my passion for it until a few years ago. I have been a massage therapist for over ten years and known for my ability to ‘torture’ people. The CIA wasn’t hiring so I pursued an Infant Massage Therapy certification in an attempt to figure out when things start going awry as we develop and stopping them before they cause trouble when we are adults. Person after person would come to me seeking relief from their pain and all I could do was iron it out with a massage, the rest of the work was up to them and I soon found that not too many go to the gym and know what to do or have a personal trainer who gives them a good program. A major contributor to this issue is the lack of communication from the client to the professional out of ignorance of their own body all because we are so busy with the other demands of life to even listen to what our body is telling us. This blog will give you that understanding.

All that background stuff brought me to today: a certified personal trainer who LOVES kettlebell training (my fave move is the Turkish Get Up), loves running, and loves acting like a kid (I have three!). I hope you enjoy the journey with me as we tackle understanding our bodies and how to get the most of your time at the gym, beat injury, figure out what muscles are doing what, and have a few laughs along the way. Understand that I am a massage therapist and personal trainer, not a medical doctor so the advice I share here is strictly that: advice. To see the kind of work I do (with my hunk of a hubby) click here.

Please drop me a line though, I would love to hear all about you!

Take care,

Kerry M. Davis LMT, CIMT, CPT

The perfect turf-grass lawn has come under scrutiny in recent years, and for good reason. It is a biologically sterile, labor intensive, environmentally unsustainable landscape type. I first had the pleasure of walking down Laney Road after finally finding a parking spot for the Lilac Festival years ago. The photo shows a creative alternative to the lawn by one of its residents. To me, this is a rich space that attests to individuality and offers an amenity to the neighborhood. For those who may not want something quite as funky for their suburban lawns, there are more restrained alternatives that will nonetheless make your community richer.







Calvin Laney, for whom this street was presumably named, was the land surveyor who participated in the development of Highland and other area parks, and first superintendent of the Rochester Parks Department (1888).
