‘Ando Saves:’ Sudbury’s Jesse Rich raises money by making stops as a hockey goalie to help children of late Lincoln-Sudbury athletic trainer – Sports – MetroWest Daily News, Framingham, MA

Now, it’s Jesse’s turn to help by doing the one thing he likes most: making saves.

WESTBOROUGH — Jesse Rich wants to make a lot of saves this year.

That’s because the 12-year-old ice hockey goalie from Sudbury is stopping pucks for a good cause.

From Sept. 15 to Dec. 15, Rich, who plays netminder for two club hockey teams, is asking people to donate money for each save he makes. Those funds will go to the family of former Lincoln-Sudbury athletic trainer, Yoshitaka Ando, who died from esophageal cancer last year, in order to raise enough money to send all four of Ando’s children to college.

“I want to give back to Ando and his family in the same way he gave to my community,” wrote Rich in an online pledge last month.

“(My dad) would appreciate it so much,” said Marcus Ando, one of Ando’s three sons and

Ask Amy: Personal trainer needs some personal training

Dear Amy: I am a personal trainer in my early 20s. I have been hooking up with a woman (almost 40) for the past few months, two or three times a week. Her husband found out about us. Yesterday, he called the gym where I work and also called my mother and told her I was sleeping with his wife. My mom is furious. Then he came after me at the gym.

I told him to calm down, but he took a swing at me and we fought. I knocked him out cold. He was out cold for about five minutes on the floor.

The manager at the gym fired me for fighting. I think it was wrong of the manager to do that, as I was only defending myself.

Now I’m wondering how to get my job back. I talked to my lady friend and she told me her

Personal trainer Alice Liveing on why weight loss isn’t everything

I was in a physically abusive relationship 10 years ago when I was a teenager. I can only describe it as being in a snow globe when you shake it up and your whole life is in pieces. I had to rebuild myself from the ground up – I had zero confidence. I wanted to train to be in musical theatre, so I went away to theatre school. But I was never the strongest dancer or singer, so it got to the end of my first year, and my teacher said: “Alice you just need to be stronger.” That word really stuck with me, so I just took to that like a bull to a red rag and thought “I’m not going to be the best dancer or the best singer, but I will be the strongest in my year”.

Weight training has honestly been the most transformative thing.

What you need to know before you hire a personal trainer

They stride the gym floor like Titans, prowling for the weak and flabby. They shout orders. Sometimes they make people cry.

These are the personal trainers, or PTs. The men (and sometimes women) whose job it is to whip us into shape for an hourly fee of around £30 to £65, or up to £1,000 if you happen to be a famous actor and need to achieve the superhero look for your next movie.

Once viewed as indulgent eye candy for bored housewives with too much leisure time on their hands, they have become commonplace. For many, a session with a PT is as much a part of a rounded fitness routine as a treadmill and kettlebells. During lockdown, the nation even had its own personal trainer, Joe Wicks, whose chirpy daily online sessions helped

When the gyms closed in March, I won’t lie – I was gutted. I’d finally got back into the swing of things on the exercise front (after a very jolly Christmas break and a trip to Lisbon, where I ate enough Portuguese custard tarts to feed a family of twelve for weeks). I’d found a happy routine of weight training three times a week in the gym, spin classes and playing netball. All in all, I was feeling pretty active.

But then lockdown hit. Suddenly, I had to completely rethink my exercise routine and alter what I did to get on a sweat on, factoring in the equipment I had at home. Luckily, I have enough kit for a decent session in the garden, but after doing the same weights routine over and over again for three months, it quickly became…
