With three girls all under the age of 8, it’s rarely a relaxing weekend in the Wicken household.
This weekend was no different we had gymnastics, play dates, and Misty was invited to 3 different ladies events.
So, it’s Tuesday, and I’m relieved to have a little free time today to chill out , have my coffee and write this email.
In case you were not aware, this month is MS awareness month.
I have to be honest, I feel like “awareness” is becoming a buzzword used by many pharmaceutical and medical companies to promote their organization, yet they offer no STEP BY STEP solutions to guide people with MS in their healing process.
Just to be clear, I am all for ‘awareness.’
I think people need to understand MS and definitely share more compassion and assistance to people with MS.
However, if you have MS, you’re AWARE THAT YOU HAVE IT every day.
What people with MS REALLY NEED are:
– Symptom management strategies
– Lifestyle planning strategies
– Education on how to COUNTERACT MS SYMPTOMS
– Structured exercise programs
– Structured nutrition programs
– Step by Step Stress management programs
– Mental health programs
– Family counseling and empowerment programs
I feel that in addition to MS AWARENESS MONTH (which is for people without MS to better understand and assist you) –
You, my MS GYM hero, deserve an MS ACTION MONTH!
Why can’t the BILLION dollar pharmaceutical or large MS organizations use more of the money they raise to put on FREE WEBINARS or EVENTS all month long to expose the GLOBAL MS COMMUNITY to possible solutions for them?
Why is the money they raise NOT being used to help people pay for LIFE NEEDS (food, wheel chairs, home repair, counseling, exercise programs, etc.) while they research a cure?
I’ll be honest here, Ken and I shake our heads every time another MS AWARENESS non-profit or pharma-backed group pops up in our Facebook feed with no real solutions for you.
How many groups can we keep up with in a week without them consuming our PRECIOUS TIME, ENERGY, AND NEUROLOGIC RESERVE?
You need to focus on HEALING YOUR BRAIN, not more information about MS.
I want less talk AND MORE ACTION in the MS community.
That is why I created the MS Gym.
I couldn’t stand how underserved the GLOBAL MS COMMUNITY was.
Sure, there was a lot of ‘Information’ being dispensed but, there was NO exercise platform that provided a STEP BY STEP PLAN to help you move better, think better, know better, feel better, and LIVE BETTER QUALITY LIVES.
And I couldn’t let another day go by when I KNEW I could help.
My biz partner Ken and I have are so fortunate to LIVE in a constant state of MS ‘awareness’ because we serve the people we PASSIONATELY LOVE every single day.
We are aware of what you need because we do life alongside our GYMMERS day in, day out and will continue to do so.
We serve the MS community every single day, most of our internal team/staff have MS, Ken’s dad is suffering form Parkinson’s and has many of the same mobility issues our MS community faces.
We live it with you…
We want to see MORE IMPACT which is why we work our tails off to deliver the BEST LIFESTYLE PROGRAMMING to help our MS ATHLETES live a life by DESIGN and not by diagnosis.
