Stanley Porter, CPT
Several years ago, I was involved in a car accident that totaled my vehicle and changed my life. At the time I was a public school teacher, and a musician. My injuries included back strain and a concussion. The road to recovery was long, and I was unable to continue my work as a school teacher for a few months. Playing the piano was difficult because my eye hand coordination was thrown off. Furthermore I had to cease my martial arts training until my condition improved. On top of all this, I still loved my desserts and indulged in takeout food. This was a recipe for disaster!
My new sedentary lifestyle produced extra body weight, and dangerously high cholesterol levels. Facing a health crisis, my doctor suggested cholesterol medication. Determined to find another solution, I partnered with a personal trainer who helped me change my diet and exercise routine so I could lose the extra weight. After losing 20 pounds, my cholesterol returned to normal. Inspired by my own journey, I left my job in public education, became a certified personal trainer, and now help people transform their lives through physical fitness!
A MISSION TO INSPIRE OTHERS
Although I have retired from public education, the passion to inspire and motivate people is still at the core of what I do today. In addition to providing private personal training sessions, I offer nutritional coaching, and lead wellness workshops throughout the United States. Many of my thoughts about life are also contained in two books I have written: Every Song Has a Story and The Weight Is Over. Both are available on Amazon. Contact me for personal services, or to lead a workshop in your area. In the meantime, purchase one of my books and connect with me on social media. Let's get stronger together!
