Specialised Personal Training at Sports Optimum

 

There are numerous personal trainers and personal training businesses in South Yarra that can help you lose that spare tyre you’re carrying around your mid-section or around your backside or even make your legs look a little sexier in that evening dress (maybe not if you’re male though! Haha)! However, if you’ve had a lower back disc injury, a knee reconstruction or you’re suffering with a shoulder or neck injury, you would probably want to have a personal trainer that has that extra specialised knowledge, that could actually help you with your injuries and that’s why you must go and see Sports Optimum in South Yarra.

Sports Optimum offers a very personalised and specialised service that can specifically accommodate for your injuries and posture type. You just don’t want to be putting your body into the trust of a personal trainer that has done an 8 week or 12 week course or someone who just simply hasn’t got the knowledge, especially if you need that extra attention, because they are just not capable of understanding from a safety point of view what you need and more importantly what you don’t need in your training.

Sports Optimum’s personal training in South Yarra can develop a program to your specific needs that can strengthen your specific body weaknesses. We can also assess your posture type and be able to specifically tell you how to better train to improve that posture type, which in turn will have a positive effect on your injuries.

If you’re the kind of person that wants that extra attention and knowledge with your current and past injuries that can keep you moving forward even when you’ve been nailed down with injuries when using a personal trainer, then Sports Optimum personal training is for you!

Sports Optimum personal training in South Yarra can keep you moving forward at a faster speed, so why not get that extra individualised attention that your body needs? Your body will definitely thank you later.

INCREASING SUCCESS WITH GOAL SETTING AND PERSONAL TRAINING!

Hi my name is Marlon Walker and I am a personal trainer at Sports Optimum in South Yarra. There are many benefits from having regular weekly personal training. For one, having your own personal trainer is going to push you along to achieve a goal, whatever that might be. Maybe you might not of even had one, however with a good personal trainer in your corner, you would definitely have a goal. Having a goal is purely individual and will of course be different for each and every person.

Goal setting in any field when you’re working hard to achieve a desired result is a necessity and helps motivate and push you further than your willing to go. If you didn’t have something to aim for, then you could quite possibly lack the motivation to put in the time and effort needed to achieve your best result.

When thinking of a goal, you have to remember a goal is not a need, as there is no inspiration in a need. However, there is inspiration in want! When choosing your goal you have to pick a goal that you’re emotionally involved in. You should be on fire with your goal; fuelled with your own desire. You should be in love with your goal. The bigger, the better the goal. If there were no limitations whatsoever, what would you want to do? Success in itself is having a worthy goal to strive for.

Having regular personal training, along with having a worthwhile goal will give you laser focus and bring the best out in you, motivating you to push further than you would of, if you were left to just train on your own, with no goal. When you have the right goal you will know and feel good about it! Even though you can’t see the change, you must commit to the change. Remember, “Anything is possible!”

At Sports Optimum in South Yarra when doing personal training, we highly recommend that you have a goal! A goal that you love! A goal that fuels your desire!

SO DREAM BIG!

Remedial Massage: A Pain Relief for Physical Injuries

 

Hi my name is Marlon Walker and I am a remedial massage therapist, personal trainer and pilates instructor at Sports Optimum in South Yarra for two decades.

What is Remedial Massage Therapy and how it will help you

 
Remedial Massage is such an amazing therapy for stopping pain, increasing pain free range of functional movement and rehabilitating physical injuries. Pain relief is remedial massage’s number one benefit.

According to Medibank Private, Australia’s largest health insurer, remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue of the body, to assist in rehabilitation, pain, and injury management.

If you’re someone that has been suffering with pain, then you must look at remedial massage as a therapy to stop your pain and get you moving in a pain free range of movement. Everybody needs a certain amount of muscular tension in their body to maintain an upright posture however, when muscular tension becomes elevated, muscles and fascia can develop hypersensitive contractile knots called myofascial or muscular trigger points.

According to Travell & Simons (1999) the medical definition of Myofascial Trigger Point is: A hyperirritable spot in skeletal muscle that is associated with a hypersensitive palpable nodule in a taunt band. The spot is painful on compression and can give rise to characteristic referred pain, referred tenderness, motor dysfunction, and autonomic phenomena.

Myofascial trigger points can and do refer pain to other areas of body and remedial massage therapy at Sports Optimum in South Yarra can help stop this pain fast.

Remedial massage is designed to rebalance muscle length, tone and tension by using manipulation of soft tissues of the body, through kneading, rubbing, and stroking, performed manually by the hands, fingers, thumbs, knuckles, forearms and elbows to produce a healing effect on the muscular, nervous, and immune systems and on whole body circulation.

Remedial massage therapists must have a detailed knowledge in anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology, to be able assess, treat, and reduce a person’s pain.

Why you should choose Sports Optimum for your Remedial Massage

 
Remedial massage treatments at Sports Optimum are very personalised to the individuals needs as every person has their own specific posture type and pain patterns. If you’re in pain or you have an ache or niggle, then why not seek out Sports Optimum in South Yarra for a pain relieving remedial massage treatment to stop your pain fast?
