MEMBER MONDAY: Each week we feature an exceptional client that exudes Living the Life They Envision. This week we feature Ahmad Adi.
He’s a resident physician at Duke Hospitals – currently finishing his training to become a psychiatrist. He is also interested in public health issues surrounding mental health, particularly those that affect refugee/immigrant populations.
His favorite exercises:
Hmmm..that’s a difficult one to answer. He can say with confidence that his least favorite is burpees! He does enjoy boxing during his training sessions.
He’s been at Empower training with Chuck since early March 2017.
What he does for FUN:
He enjoys spending time with family and friends. He also enjoys leisure reading as well as audiobooks! He’s planning to restart his journey to have an independent skydiving license this summer!
Words from Ahmad:
“Empower has definitely helped me with regards to structuring and incorporating regular exercise into my life. One of the reasons I did not exercise regularly is because of my own anxieties and cluelessness about how to approach my exercise/the wealth of confusing information out there. Chuck has helped me tremendously with regards to structuring my sessions/providing some educational material in the meanwhile. He was also patient with me when I first started as I was a rookie who was not able to tolerate many of the sessions. Thanks to Empower, exercise is now a regular part of my life and I feel healthier and stronger than ever!”
