My name is Christin and I am a rising senior at Wellesley College. I'm a lifelong athlete and ultimately plan to head to medical school and specialize in orthopedics and sports medicine. For the last year I have worked in the athletic training room in Wellesley's sports medicine department learning about injury prevention and treatment of the varsity athletes at the college. It's been an amazing experience, chock full of broken limbs, blood, and chronic sports-related injuries. Since I started the job, it seems like I have become the go-to girl among my friends for advide on fitness, injury prevention, nutrition and just staying healthy in general. I am honestly pretty anal about keeping up a healthy lifestyle and I owe it all to growing up an athlete. But the truth is that the majority of tips athletes learn to maximize their workouts, how to maintain a healthy diet and to prevent injury should be available to recreational participants. I feel like this information is most important for the recreational population in order to prevent the most basic of injuries and allow full enjoyment of the sport or activity with which they are engaged. It is my hope to bring my obsessive desire to be cognizant of the latest fitness and nutrition research to the general public in a clearer form and most importantly get some feedback on what works best for different people. Enjoy!
