Chavis grew up with a touring rock and roll singer/songwriter for a dad and developed a passion for words and music at a young age. He attends Berklee College of Music and recently released his debut album, "Six Good Songs". Thanks for helping our members relax after their workout during this past week's Thursday Night Cooldown!

Here is your chance to try out Personal Training to see if it is a good fit for you!
An inspiring story from one of the trainers at Marblehead:
"One of our members was recently in a car accident. Thankfully, he is okay and only sustained minor injuries. When he was being evaluated in the Emergency Room the Doctor told him his fitness level contributed to his injuries not being worse. With his core strength, he was able to brace himself more upon the impact. We all want to look good, but there are so many benefits to exercise and here is a perfect example."
A good reminder of the importance of physical health and fitness. We all hope you feel better soon!

Blog 3. Parkinson's (5/18/16)
Pursuing fitness is not just for those who are looking to sculpt their bodies, it is also for health and wellness. I recently had the amazing experience of helping out with a class for people suffering from Parkinson's disease. The amount of soul that these men and women put into their workouts is unmatched by any other. Whether they were doing an easy exercise or something more challenging, they always put their all into the workout.
Some of the exercises seemed quite easy for some of the class members, while other exercises, even if they looked very simple, were incredibly difficult for many of the participants. Certain simple motions were almost impossible for them, due to their disease, but the more they do these exercises, the more their range of motion will increase over time. Throughout my project I have been exploring whether or not personal training is something I would want to pursue as a career path. The experience of this class showed me the rewarding nature of helping someone else improve their physical health, even in the face of a major illness, which has made the job that much more inspiring.
