The Matrix and Stardust Fitness
In the recent past I was introduced to Marilyn and Ellyse Zosia the Founders of IAMADAPTIVE at a local Expo in Hollywood Florida. While in the moment of meeting these powerhouse women I felt the energy of destiny surrounding us. IAMADAPTIVE is a movement that celebrates the shine of the global extra-abled community. Recently IAMADAPTIVE opened an adaptive gym in Doral/Miami Florida called The Matrix Miami http://www.thematrixmiami.com/. This gym provides insurance approved Physical Therapy, strength and endurance training and I have had the privilege of being one of their first costumers. The adaptive equipment provided and an adaptive attitude among the coaches and physical therapist makes this gym an adventurous, challenging and safe place for extra-abled individuals to get stronger physically and emotionally. For the past month I've been working with the Head Coach Kris Osuna @krisosuna and Physical Therapist Leah Kron @leahkron. Leah works with me on dexterity, flexibility and alignment and Kris is designing an individualized strength training regime for me. Both have taken the time to observe my unique strengths and challenges to create a regime that best fits me as an adaptive athlete. Their collaboration and expertise are empowering me to become stronger by connecting me to a greater sense of self as an adaptive athlete. In the short time that I have trained with them I have observed a huge difference in my strength and endurance both physically and emotionally. I have also had the chance to learn a new performance art, Areal Dancing, with owner and Yoga Instructor, Johanna Eckardt @stardustfitness of Stardust Fitness http://www.stardust.fitness/, located upstairs in the Matrix building. Areal Dancing has been a fun new adventure for me!It has been such a fun experience to learn how to fly and twirl while suspended off the ground. Johanna creates an amazing atmosphere of peace and support that has really allowed me to grow as a performing artist. Johanna has lovingly challenged me to get uncomfortable and stretch my limits which has expanded my mind and allowed me to grow as an individual. If you live in Miami check out her studio times and take her classes. They are so fun! I am grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with all of these amazing trainors and I look forward to all that will transpire as we continue to work together! Check them out for yourself!
