Always finding ways to better support our community

Each month the Live Well team invite a health and fitness expert to our team meeting to educate us on how to better support our community.

Live Well case study: Pregnancy & Training

When I fell pregnant I was initially hesitant about continuing my training…
My goals were to improve my overall strength and lose some centimetres off my midsection, which I was able to achieve with weekly PT sessions.
When I fell pregnant I was initially hesitant about continuing my training, but Chris was very reassuring and was able to tailor my programs to suit each stage of my pregnancy, and was really guided by my changing needs and capabilities each session.
Chris knew that I would need to support my growing belly, but also to prepare my body for breastfeeding, holding a baby, and juggling a pram, baby and shopping at the same time!
As I’m notoriously lazy, none of my friends could believe I was still training while pregnant, and even I surprised myself training up until 37 weeks! That in itself is a testament to how much I enjoy my sessions!
Taking care of one’s physical and mental health is so vital as a new mum, so once I got into a bit of a routine with my baby, and after lockdown, I was happy to get back to the gym six months postpartum. The Live Well team consistently go above and beyond to help their members achieve their goals, and the community is so encouraging and friendly.

The time is now: GO ELECTRIC

The NSW Government is incentivising the uptake of electric vehicles (EVs) for fleets to fast-track the transition to net zero emissions.  This incentive will be available to businesses and not-for-profit organisations to reduce the costs of buying new EVs and charging stations for their fleets.

The NSW Government is now inviting fleets to register their interest to receive updates.

 

2020 Male Client of the Year

Andrew has been nothing but amazing!Throughout the Covid-19 period when gyms were closed, Andrew trained at the park twice a week, in the dark, cold, and wet – barely missing a session. Despite tough times and challenges, Andrew never fails to prevail, going from pain in the knees and lower back to balanced leg development and improved balance and stability. His words – I never realised I had this muscle (hamstrings)!

From not being able to run (due to knee pain) to running in the park, doing exercises that focus on metabolic and cardiorespiratory fitness when equipment was not readily available. Breaking out of the comfort zone and going above and beyond.
He has not only loss weight and gain strength, but feels a whole lot healthier. We all know consistency is hard, so to keep consistent and rise above is exceptional. Training with Andrew, we worked on balance and leg dexterity, which has reduced fall risk and further extends to his water/snow skiing capabilities. Additionally, Andrew went from doing no chin-ups, to doing 4 with plenty more in the tank.

Pushing the Limit

Nothing beats the feeling of a new day at work where I’m about to attempt a tattoo concept I haven’t done before or do a custom tattoo that I designed. The mixture of excitement coupled with stress is exhilarating. I’ve never minded a challenge and I don’t like to lose so failure really isn’t an option. What‘s the point of a comfort zone anyway if I’m not doing my best to broaden the scope? And when I do finally succeed it is one belonging not only to me, but my client for the art they must wear eternally, and my mentor and the knowledge and experience gifted to me.

I am a true believer age means nothing!

It’s just a number that creates limitations in our mind that then reflects on to our body and the way we live our life.
Yesterday Bella celebrated her birthday and there were close to ninety candles on the cake.
However this hasn’t stopped her from continuing to build her strength and fitness.
So she can keep doing the things she loves with confidence.
Happy birthday Bella ?
