Hi, I’m Elizabeth Tessier, and I’m bursting with excitement that you’re visiting Burstology, my health and fitness blog.
But enough about me. What about you?
- Do you tend to mistrust conventional wisdom, especially about health and fitness?
- Are most health and fitness sites too filled with trends for your taste?
- Have you gotten tired of searching for a topic, only to get pages of results with the same information, just worded slightly differently?
- When you find information online about a health or fitness subject, are you often left with more questions than answers?
- When you go online, are health and fitness among your top topics?
If you answered “yes” to two or more questions, then you’re just the kind of person I’m looking for.
More important, am I sounding like the type of tell-it-like-it-is friend you would like as a virtual buddy on your quest for health and fitness?
To help you get a feeling, here’s what folks have said about me:
“She’s great, except for her music, choreography and sense of rhythm.” Unsolicited testimonial from student in my aerobics class at gym now called 24 Hour Fitness.
“Their standards must be low.” Said by me after learning
I’d scored an A on certifying exam for exercise instructors from American Council on Exercise.
“Hose, over here.” Worried race race official after I lurched across finish line of Gloucester Beer Chase, first and last race in which I took home hardware.
“Do we know her?” Red Sox management after I asked some, er, lively questions in covering a news conference as a reporter for United Press International.
“Sorry!” Videographer, after whipping his camera into my head as I defended my front-row position at group interview with women’s winner of Boston Marathon.
“Cough, cough!” Fellow passenger in exhaust-choked back of press truck as we tracked front runner of Falmouth Road Race all 7 miles from Woods Hole, Mass.
“OK, Mom.” Participant in a half-marathon training session, to my umpteenth reminder as volunteer coach to, “Work your arms, and your arms will work for you.”
Those are the printable remarks I can recall. The main thing for you to recall is that Burstology is for people who like to use their minds to take care of their bodies. And it helps if you take your health seriously but not yourself. That’s what I do, and I can’t wait to share with you the things I think will up your health-and-fitness game.
