    Why Fit Spirit is More Than Getting in Shape

    in Health

    The Fit Spirit Goes 
    Beyond Fitness 
    by Lawrence Chin Founder
    (Excerpt from Voyage Ohio) Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
    I started as an investor after moving to the US from Trinidad, and I had a successful investment company. After the market crashed in 2008, my company took a loss, and I decided to pivot to my next venture. Growing up, I always had a passion for fitness- specifically martial arts, dance, and gymnastics. 
    I actually used to compete in the martial arts arena in Trinidad! So, a natural next step was to start teaching classes here for people interested in fitness and wellness. In 2010 I started my business, which eventually grew to become FitSpirit Fitness in 2011. Our goal was to be different from all the other fitness companies out there. 
    We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
    It has definitely not been a smooth road. I have faced multiple tragedies in life, like losing my first business and losing my eldest child in 2013. At times, my world has been rocked. I have since promised myself to continue living for my daughter; she was always someone who went out of her way to make people happy and comfortable in themselves, and that is the essence of FitSpirit  What sets us apart is that we truly try to motivate our clients physically and mentally so that they leave our studio feeling happy and accomplished.

    Dr. Charles Simkovich Founder at Simkovich Concussion

    in Health

    Out of the desire to achieve better outcomes for his patients, Dr. Charles Simkovich founded Simkovich Concussion Institute in 1986. Through research and study, we have innovated an accelerated treatment with a revolutionary technique that delivers significant improvement in the clinical outcomes of patients suffering newly sustained or persistent or even chronic life long post concussion symptoms.
    After suffering a head injury, a person can experience a wide range of difficulties such as: cognitive decline and difficulty thinking and remembering, physical deficits and migraines, emotional health and changes in emotion and mood, and sleep disturbances and disorders. For some, these symptoms can last a short period of time. For others, though, TBI and concussion symptoms can last weeks, months, or even years, and unfortunately for some, chronic life long symptoms become their new way of life.
    At Simkovich Concussion Institute, we are specialized and dedicated to providing treatment outcomes and quality of care so that our patients suffering a post concussion way of life can re-claim their wellness and “Return to Life”!
