We know that the human body is capable of extraordinary things and we're passionate about getting the best out of our clients and allowing them to realise their full physical potential.
Getting back into peak condition after serious injury or illness can be one of the toughest challenges that many of us will ever face. Let's team up and tackle it together.
Injuries can mean loss of fitness, time away from the gym, sitting on the sidelines feeling deflated and defeated. But the challenges that come from recovery can actually inspire improvement.
With professional medical support we can diagnose and help you understand your injury. This will be key to your rehabilitation plan and help you avoid further injury in the future. Knowing what went wrong will also aid your mental recovery as getting injured can have a huge impact on your confidence levels. We'll help correct bad movement patterns and muscle imbalances in order to prevent damage.
No matter how down or broken you might feel as you battle back from injury or illness, we'll aim to cultivate your positivity and turn the negative lows into positive highs. We'll also help you watch out for triggers that might stimulate your sympathetic nervous system – tiredness, alcohol, hunger, stress and so on.
A nutrient-packed diet and adequate hydration are key during recovery – we can recommend the right supplements and give you pointers on the things to stay away from. Once you're ready to re-engage with the gym we'll focus on stabilisation, core and flexibility exercises.
We have extensive experience of working with clients with unique fitness demands.
We've structured workouts based on sound and guided movement for blind and vision impaired clients. We work with clients during and after treatment as they seek to improve or regain fitness as part of their recovery from cancer and other serious illness.
Isaac is a great example of someone we've worked with. He came to us to improve his fitness and with our help he's been on an upward curve ever since…
Because I am blind, I cannot learn new exercises by watching my trainer nor can he show me what I am doing wrong – he has to either verbalise the technique or demonstrate by physically making adjustments to my body shape.
For this reason, I need to work with a trainer who can effectively explain an exercise and describe the postures and workings of the body that correspond to the proper execution of that exercise. I have found such a trainer in Rob, and as a result, working out with him is both productive and enjoyable.
Through careful instruction and my conscious effort to comprehend and implement what I’m being told, I gain a greater understanding of the mechanics and purpose of an exercise than perhaps I would through visual imitation.
The team's knowledge, creativity and flexibility make training at MyFitness Studio both a worthwhile pleasure and an education.
I decided to invest in some personal training sessions six months before my wedding in July 2011 and have been training with Rob and the team ever since.
As is the case for so many brides (and grooms) to be, I was a bit nervous about the pressure of looking good on my wedding day. My objective was simply to lose some weight and tone up so I could feel confident and happy with how I would look in our wedding pictures.
At my first session Rob identified key areas for us to work on including my arms, thighs and bottom and how specifically to make all of those areas slimmer and tighter. I originally trained only twice a week and saw huge changes in my body after just a couple of months. My arms were noticeably toned and my bottom smaller and tighter.
The team gave me great nutritional information to ensure my diet supported my training and weight loss goals. By my wedding in July I had not only hit my weight loss target, I had toned up dramatically. I felt in the best shape of my life and as a result I felt confident and happy in my dress. That on-the-day confidence really shows through in our pictures and I’m so thankful to MyFitness Studio for helping me achieve this.
Our Fit for the Occasion sessions were the right mix of fun and hard work and I enjoyed them so much that I couldn’t give up training after the wedding.
