Heading into my early 60s I realized that I needed to work with a really competent trainer to protect my joints, stay flexible and be mobile.
It was very important to me to ensure that I could continue to enjoy all the activities I do and maintain full mobility. Having several previous injuries (from earlier sporting activities) it was important to me to find a trainer that was knowledgeable about how to work with, and motivate, clients with complex movement limitations, or restrictions. I looked around for a really experienced trainer and found Andrea – she has been my trainer for almost 3 years now.
I have been extremely pleased with the quality of training that I receive from Andrea. Not only is she a great trainer, she is also a very nice person—always upbeat and encouraging. She has developed my program to focus on my joint issues, as well as my core strength and love of golf. Andrea always keeps the weekly sessions fresh and challenging—she builds your program specifically around your personal goals or problems. She even designs workouts for me when I travel, to make sure I continue to stay active.
Andrea is extremely knowledgeable, plus she continues to follows up on new equipment, or exercise theories for specific sports, such as golf. With her excellent qualifications, experience and knowledge she is so great at designing your exercises to focus on your area of injury, or sport of choice.
First and foremost, Andrea is a delight to work with. I have had lower back and posture issues that required visits to the physio every couple of months for the last 20 years. Andrea got me off my “old school, weights and machine” workout and developed a program for me that focused on my core. Every exercise is well thought out and purposeful, and her assessment is much more detailed than anything that I have experienced before. Now my workouts are strategically designed to build muscle in a manner that will deliver “functional” results. I still play a lot of golf and tennis and a strong core is critical for me to strengthen my back and give me more power for both golf and tennis.
I would not hesitate to recommend Andrea for injury rehabilitation, ergonomic analysis, sports specific training, or general training for overall wellness.
Under Andrea’s care I feel great, I no longer have to see a physio on a regular basis for my back. I also hit the golf ball an extra 20 yards and I recently won a singles tennis tournament and fully expect to win many more!
