Growing on social media has been an amazing experience. It has allowed me to meet new people, take advantage of new opportunities, and most importantly educate a ton of people on the power of their own body. It has been an amazing experience so far and I want to keep growing as much as I can.
In order for me to take the next steps towards my goal I will need some support, and that's where the t-shirts come in. All of the money made from the sales of the t-shirts will go back into allowing me to do what I need to continue to grow and continue to educate.
Just like the work I put in for my posts, I took a lot of time to make sure that I would make and sell these t-shirts the right way. I made sure I found the highest quality custom printer that I could along with choosing a t-shirt that is comfortable, durable, and true to size.
The phrase on the shirt is also something I am really proud of.
"It only hurts when I don't move" rings true in two different ways.
1. It is well documented how well movement and exercise helps people to deal with emotional and physical pain. This motto is meant to remind you and everyone around you of that fact. It can be as simple as walking around the block when you really don't feel like it or training for an Ironman. Movement is movement.
2. The phrase is also music to a PT's ears. Anytime a patient is describing their symptoms and they say that when they're moving they feel fine and that it only hurts when they're static it means that pain is coming from something that can be worked with. It most often singles a muscular issue and muscles are malleable and can be trained to be more mobile and stronger.
Thank you for being on this ride with me and supporting me by purchasing this shirt. It means a lot to me and I don't plan on slowing down any time soon.
