Waterwheels: Why They are Like our Physical Body

How energy conversion is important to our bodies

The water wheel coverts energy of free-flowing water into power. There are all types of water wheels: backshot, reversible, overshot, breastshot ~~~ who knew? They take water and it flows into the basket which turns a wheel which is used as energy on the otherside. They are beautiful but not well used anymore.


Our bodies convert Energy, too! What muscles do is convert energy into power & our digestive system converts food into energy~ I learned how a long, long time ago in my exercise physiology & health courses in college. We all know that exercise converts into a healthier body. Good nutrition offers many advantages to our health. And, we all strive toward this. Our bodies are beautiful. Are you using your's (or treating your's) well these days? Most of us don’t do this as well as we could be.

That’s where the world of personal trainers and nutritonist enter our lives.

Like massage therapists, nutritionists & personal trainer’s come in all degrees of knowledge and education, expertise and ability to deliver the results, we as the consumer, desire. Working them once or on an ongoing basis can have profound results in your life.

In this day and age, we all need a little help. Exercise is a science and nutrition can be daunting. We are inundated with information, misinformation and impersonal messages. Working out and eating healthy are unique to each and everyone of us. What will work for you will not necessarily work for your neighbor!

You don’t even have to LIVE near a trainer or nutritionist to get the results from them you desire. You simply need to connect with someone to have a consultation and start getting results. You can find them on the internet. My personal favorite way of finding someone, however, is to discover who your friends are seeing. More people than you think have used a personal trainer or nutrionist in the past. Did your friends like them? Did they see results? Are they easy to 'access' whether it be in person or on the phone? Consultations can be done quickly and effortlessly. Create the list of people you want to call, get your list of questions together, call and leave a message. The one's who get back to you in a timely manner are the professionals you want to work with!
