Still Asthmatic

It happens about half the time I go to the gym. I end up in the bathroom stall puking my guts out. I don't know if its because of my breathing or if there's too much carbon dioxide in that gym? My limbs tingle & go numb the way they do when having a heat stroke. I don't know whether to call 911 or just tough it out. I always do the latter. My body does the rest and I'm still here so I figure I've got a high tolerance. I better consult my nurse sister though for future reference to get a clear diagnosis. I do know that my body is in good physical condition and I don't eat before I workout. 

Born an asthmatic, for the first 5 years of my life I frequented numerous emergency rooms. My parents feared I'd stop breathing or my heart would cease due to my severe attacks of wheasing and shortness of breath. My lungs are simply ill-equipped to respirate at full or normal capacity, but I've managed to compete in sports through high school to the present and remain very active in strenuous activities.

I'm grateful for my health. Genetically, I haven't been blessed to say the least, but I make the best with what I've got.

Personal Training is in my blood. I Love helping people achieve a healthier way of life. I am proof that health problems are just an obstacle. Many people have health issues, but they can still get fit. It's not as bad as many people think either. An Exercise Bike, a few weight machines a couple times per week, then you start seeing results & feeling better. Before you know it, your body is improving and everything you do is easier. If you're carrying extra weight, losing it will make you feel reborn. I promise.

Your body was meant to run. It was meant to roam the fields and hunt in the forests, not sit in an office building up your muffin-top. Work with me & I'll get you back to your fighting weight. Or more simply put, I'll get you into healthy shape. And now for a Shameless Selfie only meant to illustrate & reinforce the point:)

Adidas SL II: The Most Comfortable & Stylish shoe ever. You could literally wear them to play a game of basketball, then change into your Sunday best and wear them to church. With all the Classic shoes being brought back & re-released, it wouldn't be prudent if Adidas neglected to do the same with the SL II's. Black, White and Grey never looked so good and felt so perfect. 
These shoes fit like gloves for your feet; supportive & firm in the soles, but still soft & flexible in the surrounding materials, giving your lower extremities an experience to behold. 

Underrated in popularity only because the right person was not promoting them, the Adidas SL II is a timeless shoe. Currently styles and colors are bright & loud. The SL II could adapt like so. Color customization would be easy for the SL II, as it was very simple in its design. Then again you can never go wrong with the black or white models. They are a staple shoe for
any wardrobe & absolutely complement the finest outfit.

Please Adidas. Please Bring Back the SL II's!!!!!! They look good on you.
