Bernice Kerchin's Experience
When Greg McPherson comes into my living room to work with me he brings magic with him. He takes three things out of his big black bag---I call them toys but they are tools for exercising---and the room turns into a gym. The banister becomes an anchor for pulleys, the floor is a path for carrying kettle bells and the stairs are where I relearn balance and work on my core, step by step. A casual chair becomes the site for squats. Behind the piano, he discovered an old exercise bench on which I am now learning the footwork for boxing and discovering that I able to step up and down without losing my balance He has turned my living room into a gym.
I have been training with Greg for four months now. When I began I was a month away from my 80th birthday, I walked with a shuffle , my head, shoulders and back curved forward and my body felt ten years older than I was. I was short of breath and couldn’t walk up the stairs without pulling myself up by the banister.I dreaded any incline. I had been very active when I was young, taking dance classes from the time I was nine,practicing Yoga,walking on the treadmill for an hour three days a week. Although I taught archaeology in the winters, every summer I went into the field. I dug holes, carried buckets of dirt and bent over the space I was excavating, definitely a work out. But ten years ago I began working every day, almost all day, at my computer and ignoring what was happening to my body. I did workout for a while with a fitness trainer but that ended badly and I was reluctant to try with someone else.
Then Greg entered the picture. I chose to work with him after a single phone call. I knew he and I would work well together just from that initial exchange and I have never been sorry I chose him from the many trainers I read about on THUMBTACK. It is just so much FUN! He has a great sense of humor and we laugh a lot. His smartphone contains a wealth of music and I feel like I’m dancing through the sixties, the seventies and today every minute of our workout. He realized that I needed particular help with coordination and (as I said before, balance) and decided that I should learn to box. Oh, joy! I love that part of the week. Can you imagine a woman growing up in the forties and fifties boxing? Greg sometimes records me boxing, probably to show me how my stance and strength are improving. He has made me a TV star!
My workouts with Greg have been some of the best workouts I’ve ever endured. He’s creative in his approach, he listens to feedback, and he pushes me hard. It’s a pleasure to work with him, and I’m thankful for all the progress he’s helped me make so far.
