To put it into words does not do it justice. To me, going to work knowing that I can make a difference in somebody’s life is why I chose this career path and also why I won’t ever look back. The people I’ve met and the opportunities that I’ve been presented are extremely rewarding, not to mention the added physical and mental health benefits of working on my feet and helping clients through their exercises.
The body is essentially an intricate system of levers and pullies. As Sir Isaac Newton put it while writing out his Laws of Motion: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Putting this statement into real life, the actions that we take with our bodies can have either positive, detrimental, or neutral effects on our physical health. Through kinesiology, I have acquired the ability to pick out actions to pursue or avoid depending on the situation, which is something I find fascinating. There’s nothing I appreciate more than overcoming a challenge. This aspect of the job keeps it interesting as new challenges present themselves every day.
Kinesiology has a lot to do with the physical body, but the mind plays just as significant of a role in recovery. Another aspect that I enjoy about being a kinesiologist is the ability to provide clients with peace of mind; to be able to relay that nothing is set in stone. Anything is possible if you set your mind to it. To see others switch from a pessimistic to an optimistic attitude towards themselves is simply elevating. Physical activity is such a valuable tool when it comes to preventing chronic disease, mental health disorders, and injury that I believe it should be one of the first things we turn to for help with our bodies. Being able to assist people in that regard is why I love what I do.
