Brasseur — who suffers from a congenital heart disease that nearly killed her — wants other women to take the health of their hearts more.
Perhaps it is just that he and Brasseur grew up once they went pro. I respect so many of their principles.
They object to pro competitions which do not concern themselves with the well-being of the athletes for example, not fixing bad icewhen eligible competitions will come to a halt until safety is assured. They utterly refuse to skate in competitions or shows unless they feel they are prepared and can give their best.
They will do everything they can to skate in small Canadian club carnivals, for whatever small amount of money the clubs can afford to pay them, in order to reconnect with their own roots and mingle with the children. They really work as a team; they live the art of negotiation and compromise.
Brasseur, Eisler write final chapter
Yes, the first book does cover Eisler's earlier career training with Kerry Leitch. Eisler's intrinsic loyalty does cover for Leitch somewhat, but it is clear that at least in one aspect -- demanding excessive exercise as punishment -- falls well within the definition of abuse by a coach at least under the new abuse policy adopted by the USFSA. Eisler recalls one time that Leitch had him run 25 miles for punishment.
The second book mentions Leitch very little, even though people who know pro skating will realize that Leitch is in charge of the pro judging that Eisler understandably ridicules.
The most magical part was in the second book, when Eisler discusses with unbelievable and endearing frankness how difficult it was to adjust to Brasseur's marriage with Rocky Marval. I'm just being selfish, but when we're on the ice, it's just Isabelle and I. I'm definitely ready to do it. Lloyd would probably have kept going a little longer.
I think I've pushed myself to the max. InBrasseur was diagnosed with a congenital heart condition that sometimes caused her heart to stop. During times of intense physical activity, she'd black out. It took a long time to find the proper dosage of medication.
Her medication is a beta blocker that works to slow down the heart rate. During physical exertion, her heart rate increases only a little. Her muscles cramp when starved of oxygen. It takes a little longer to train programs. Story continues below advertisement She said Eisler has been very patient with her during the past several years.

He has been more patient than she has been. He has become quite an expert at massaging her legs to relieve the cramps.
