Client Case Study and Feedback: B.W.

My daughter was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome when she was three years old. She is a very bright, inquisitive child but has many challenges and becomes easily overwhelmed and anxious. Unfortunately, these tendencies become far worse as she gets older and increase when placed in situations of disorganization and uncertainty. She can’t reason her way out of a situation or make excuses for it – it is what it is.
I needed to be able to create and sustain an environment where she is able to thrive and be a happy and confident girl.

Does One Size Fit All?

Does One Size Fit All?

If there are this many books than how can so many of us still be fat, out of shape, disorganized and distracted? Because it isn’t one size fits all and books don’t always tell the whole story. I’ve read books that have completely changed my life but none would be able to do what my business coach has done for me. She made it personal, put it into perspective in my life and holds me accountable.

Marcey Rader Featured in Training Edge Magazine!

Training Edge Magazine, a quarterly electronic and hard copy magazine for fitness professionals developed by the National Academy of Sports Medicine, featured yours truly in an article about niche training (pages 3 and 11!). What’s my niche? Business travelers, mobile professionals and anyone who doesn’t sit at a desk from 9-5. Why? Because I’ve lived that life. I traveled weekly for almost eight years and then traveled a few times a month for another three. I understand that traveling for a business isn’t a job it’s a lifestyle.

The Pressure of Working Mobile

The Pressure of Working Mobile

I’ve often thought about how hard it must be to have a career as a pilot or military personnel and have constant pressure to maintain health. Still, the traveler part of me can empathize because they are in one of the toughest jobs a person can be in when it comes to maintaining or improving health. They have to undergo routine exams to prove they are healthy, but what if they aren’t? Wouldn’t you be scared to get examined if you thought you might have a blood pressure problem and it might affect whether or not you can go in to work that day?

Updates and Events with Marcey Rader

Lots going on for me lately! First up, my new kit with Rubberbanditz exercise bands. I’m super excited about this kit and determined that everything in it is all a mobile professional or business traveler needs to stay fit on the road. I keep a kit in my car and have performed a couple of sets of exercises while waiting for a meeting, a client, or on the road at the gas station. My favorite part of the kit is the door strap.

Energy Giver vs. Energy Sucker

Energy Giver vs. Energy Sucker

I was recently in an amazing course led by Jerry Bergner called Life Business. If you are local to the area I highly recommend it. One of the things we looked at were the tasks, events and people in our lives and asked ourselves if we were getting energy from them or having it sucked away. Most of what I wrote was not surprising but it was interesting to see how many activities and people both gave and took energy from me.
