It’s been said that a thousand-mile journey begins with one step. Similarly, a journey to a healthier you begins with just one consultation.
There are an endless number of reasons why our health starts to slip away from us as we get older. A demanding career, family commitments, age and injury – all these things can impact our ability to adhere to a program focussed on healthy living.
But the good news is that there are people here to help.
Live Well Exercise Clinic is a state-of-the-art exercise facility that provides professional fitness training and healthy lifestyle coaching to members of any age, shape or size. By using exercise as medicine, the expertly trained and educated staff at Live Well coach members on developing healthy habits that lead to sustained lifestyle change and improved quality of life.
Live Well Exercise Clinic in Lynn Valley has been open just over a year now and has already helped dozens of clients on their journey to find their way back to a healthier self.
Take Live Well member Tanja for example. Fed up with the constant guessing game of which diet and which gym would serve her best, Tanja decided to seek professional help to finally find a long-term solution to her health concerns.
“Like many others, I have been yo-yo dieting for the majority of my adult life and stuck on the weight loss and weight gain cycle for years. I have tried every diet program and joined just about every gym,” says Tanja.
That’s when she found Live Well.
“Live Well fosters a friendly and welcoming community, and this motivates me to keep coming to exercise classes. Sessions are structured so that there is a different educational and inspirational component with each visit. Also, if something is not quite working for me, staff is always on hand to answer my questions and help me adjust my own personal program to suit my needs,” says Tanja.
“I have learned to incorporate (and even enjoy) regular exercise in my life again. Along with gaining more muscle strength and stamina, I also noticed that after a few months of doing the Live Well program I had less knee and joint pain! I feel physically stronger and more confident, and I am enjoying exercising my body and treating it well.”
Unlike Tanja, Live Well member Tory had apprehensions about exercising for years due to her fear of injury, anxiety and lack of preparedness but after years of stagnant living she soon found that she couldn’t delay her health journey any longer.
“I spent years trying to get fit and lose weight, trying all sorts of things but nothing worked until Live Well. My balance was bad, my strength was minimal and I was scared. My whole life I’ve taken horrible falls, many with serious injury,” says Tory.
“Since I’ve been with Live Well, I have not fallen at all. The trainers are so amazing, if something doesn’t work for you or you feel unwell they find an exercise you can do. Everyone has a different program with exercises just for them. There is no competition, the gym feels more like a sanctuary than a gym.”
Some members have found inspiration to seek out and sustain healthier habits together like married Live Well couple Irene and Lloyd.
“Lloyd and I both realized we needed to have some structured exercises as we age and we wanted it to be in a safe and supervised environment so that we could maintain and build strength, flexibility and stamina,” said Irene.
“Lloyd saw an ad for Live Well, looked into it and suggested we go. It has been a very positive and enjoyable experience. The groups are small, the exercises are designed for each individual and we work and advance at our own pace. It isn’t a competitive environment and everyone in each session is at a different level.”
Whatever the reason for seeking out Live Well, each member is able to find the safe and secure environment that they need to flourish. With just one consultation, the journey to a healthier you begins. Come visit us today and let us show you the path to a lifestyle you’ll be happy to have.
