Welcome to the RAW Fitness Blog and thanks for checking us out. Jen and I started brainstorming ideas for this blog with a cup of coffee overlooking the Adirondack Mountains in Lake Placid. It was fitting scenery since Jen's love for the outdoors is what lead her to follow her dream and create her company. And might I add she started it from scratch. Her love for nature, realness, purity and the desire to get people motivated and moving are only some of the qualities that make RAW Fitness work. When I truly think about it, it really takes balls to make moves to start your own business from the ground up. Could you quit your job and chase down what makes you feel most alive for the rest of your life? I ask myself the same thing.
The answer for me is oh God no, I'm too broke. But you have to start somewhere. And Jen has inspired me by giving me the opportunity to follow my passion for writing. So how does the Naked Nurse link tie into RAW Fitness and why should I read what this harlot is talking about?
I am not a writer. At least, I didn't go to school for it so be kind if grammar flaws make you cringe. Like RAW, we aren't aiming for perfection as much as individual growth and creativity.
I also don't practice nursing in the nude, although some of my patients might recover a little faster if I did. I chose the blog title because it got your attention! I also chose it because the "naked" aspect is what I love most about RAW Fitness. I can walk in and be myself, enjoy the hour I chose for myself, no judgement, no BS.
When you strip it down, we are all regular people struggling to be successful, raise a family, survive a divorce, discover, recover, whatever. All the while trying to be healthy at the same time. Jen and her team get it. That's the unique environment Raw Fitness
creates. You don't feel like you're at a typical gym, rather a fun place to work out with real people.
Oh and the "nurse" part. It is a piece of my identity that I'm proud of and I believe knowledge should be shared. Maybe what I've learned in my field can help you in some way.
Lastly, I hope to share with you a litle insight on my life, not because I'm that particularly interesting, rather I like to take the small, every day things and turn them into something amusing. We want The Naked Nurse to be something you can relate to, laugh at and act as a reminder that it's okay to be you.
Thanks for checking out our blog, some professional, some personal, all of it real, RAW and naked.
