Hello fellow fitness enthusiasts! My name is Maurice, the owner of Move Well Fitness in Bethesda, and I’ve been a personal trainer, specializing in general fitness, weight loss, senior fitness, stay-at-home moms, sports performance & corrective exercise, since 1998. Welcome to Your Body, Your Move, a blog from my company, Move Well Fitness, based out of the Bethesda, MD! Thank you for taking time out of your day to consider what I have to say about everything related to health and fitness. Since this is the first of many blogs, I thought I’d start with a brief introduction of my genesis of love for fitness and health and some topics that I’ll cover in the future. So in the famous words of one of the greatest Hip Hop Artists of All Time (Slick Rick): “Here We Go…”
As and married with two kids, I’ve been involved in health and fitness all my life. Growing up, I was a typical young boy played all the major sports. I quickly fell in love with football. It was my first major introduction to the world of fitness. We were required to work out and while most of my teammates considered this something they had to do and dreaded it, I absolutely embraced it! I particularly liked how it made me feel (energetic & stronger) and how it made me look (in shape). Believe it or not, by the end of 9th grade, I was already very knowledgeable about squatting, deadlifting, hang cleaning, pull-ups and bench pressing.
It was around this time (1991-1992) that I decided my career would be in health and fitness. I wasn’t exactly sure what I would do, but I knew it was going to involve something healthy. I toiled around with the professions of physical therapy and athletic training before exercise science in 1996 while at Elon University in North Carolina. Elon afforded me the opportunity to work in their campus recreation center for three years and my passion for fitness grew tremendouslyI achieved my first personal training certification in 1998 while at Elon fitnessSo, I think that’s enough about me in terms of how I got started in this wonderful world of health and fitness. You’ll learn more about me through the content of my (or at least that’s my intent ;)).
