PERSONAL TRAINING

If you are here because this is the year you want to get fit, run a 5K, play sports without injuries, nourish your body, or set your own fitness challenge, you have come to the right place!

Personal Training is basically a way to get customised instruction via a one-on-one or “buddy program” session. It could be one of the best investments you’ll make in your overall health and well-being.  

Fitness can be confusing. There’s a lot of information to sort through: Eat this, not that. Do cardio before, or after strength training? Should High Interval Intensity Training be a part of my program? Our experienced trainers will help you sift through all the information, join the dots, and remove the guesswork so all you need to worry about is being present and doing the best you can. 

Our qualified team of Personal Trainers possesses a wide and diverse range of expertise from basic fitness and wellness, weight loss, muscle gain, strength and conditioning for sport, rehabilitation and nutrition.

To make sure this is the right place for you we provide a complimentary personal training consultation for us to learn about your current exercise program, lifestyle, fitness goals, and for you to experience our facilities.

WHY PERSONAL TRAINING

 

Many people approach working out as a chore, like washing the dishes or cleaning the house; it sucks, but if I can turn my mind off as I do it, it’ll get done.

Unfortunately, your body is a bit more complicated than the minutiae of day-to-day chores, and depending on your current levels of strength, flexibility and cardiovascular ability, you can’t just throw one part Dettol, two parts water and hope for the best. It’s like throwing an expensive suit into the washing machine— you don’t— you go get professional help.

Personal trainers can develop an overall strategy by planning out a workout routine across several weeks, as well as advise you on meal plans to help you achieve your desired results.

HOW WE CAN HELP

 

1/ Set goals that matter

“I want to lose weight and tone up” is really the byproduct of having a program tailored to goals deeper than your skin. We’re looking deeper into your lifestyle to help you construct, realise and actualise dreams that you may have been to scared to admit to yourself.

We find that people only want the bare minimum for their bodies and minds, and we’d like to invite you to dig deeper. We are after the things that matter: amazing relationships, peace of mind, having more self awareness— fitness is just our medium.

2/ Get results that transcend the physical.

Does this all work? Well if it didn’t, we’d be out of a job 6 years ago.

We’re not about speed, we’re about sustainability. We believe the people we work with are circles, not lines. As we work with them, we keep pushing that circle further out; we look at aspects of their life that transcend the physical, and understand that everything links.

When you look at things on a line, the line can only go up or down. When you see things in a circle, you’ll realise that perhaps it’s not getting bigger because there are parts of the circle that aren’t moving at all.

3/ Avoid injury

You’re probably not an athlete, so injuries should be rare, and even if you are, they should be few and far between.

The 21st century living is the biggest catalyst of tight lower backs, neck pain and physical degeneration. However, there will be times when you want to move fast and unexpectedly, then curse everything when you can’t, or something breaks when you try.

They say prevention is better than cure, and we agree! We’re here to teach you movements that reverse modern patterns that trap your body. Think of the classic “typing at the table” pose. We’ll help your body move away from that.

 

4/ Find Valleys, not Plateaus

You’ve heard of plateaus. Geographically, they’re high pieces of flat land. You go up, stay there, then come down. You probably also know what valleys are. They are going to lead to some amazing peaks, once you get out of them.

People say that training leads you to plateaus: when after a steady rate of progression, you reach the “peak” and you stay there. After a while at the same level, you get bored and come back down.

We think that good coaches don’t bring you to plateaus. They bring you through valleys with the knowledge that beyond the darkness, there are bigger and bolder peaks. 

Life has peaks and troughs. We’re here to get you to the high points, but more importantly, show you the way through the low ones.

 

5/ Live sustainably

You’ve seen the “12 week transformation program” or the “See visible abs in 6 days” advertisements. Do they work? Some do, but what’s next? Part of the magic in transformation diets or programs is changing variables quickly and uncomfortably so that your body is shocked into adapting and responding to that stimulus.

What’s next? Can you stay off all forms of carbohydrates, dairy, legumes, oil or sugar forever? Can you subsist on around 1000-1300 calories a day in the long run? Can all humankind go for 4 HIIT/yoga/spin classes a day and say that what their doing is helping their specific physical expression?

We know you have a life, and we know the saying “life gets in the way sometimes”. How about recognising that your life is also valid, and what you do for your fitness adds to the vivacity of that life?

WHAT HAPPENS IN A PERSONAL TRAINING SESSION

 

Everybody is different and every body is unique. Your trainer will use information such as your body mechanics, experience, goals, fitness level, likes and dislikes to create a plan that is specific to your needs. Work, family, and your daily mindset are valid things that affect the way you eat and train, and we take all that into consideration.

We’re here to bring you through the challenges by holding you accountable to good daily habits and help you make positive changes towards achieving your fitness goals.

No matter your starting point, exercise is accessible to all. The training environment at Level is designed so you can move comfortably with confidence.

To make sure this is the right place for you we provide a complimentary personal training session for us to learn about your current exercise program, lifestyle, fitness goals, and for you to experience our facilities.

TESTIMONIALS

“Lorne is not just a trainer, he is a fitness master.”

When you train with Lorne, he is teaching a craft of how to stay fit and strong for the rest of one’s life.

From a handstand to the multiple variations of of push ups, whether you are looking to bulk up or seeking rehabilitation for any body part, he knows it all. He is sensitive and adapts to how one is feeling on any given day.

His intuitive approach is something I have never experienced in the 15 years that I have trained with several personal Trainers.

“Personal training sessions with Dylan are a worthwhile investment in myself.”

His instructions are clear and very precise and the modifications and increments carefully tailored to my capacity and just a bit more. 

Sustainability is emphasised through Dylan’s meticulous attention to form (meticulous perhaps being an understatement). This message flows through to the adjustments he recommends for dietary changes, with satiation and not deprivation as the key. 

I enjoy learning, challenging myself (just a bit at a time) and surprising myself with what I can do.

“Douglas has shown me that working out can be something different from the same routine.”

 

 

A few months ago, I decided to get back to working out after a few years of total inactivity. At 52, and after a number of failed attempts, I was lucky to meet Douglas, who has done a terrific job helping me in reaching my goals.

Douglas has shown me that working out can be something different from the same routine, and that the reward, apart from strength gains and weight loss, is in training itself. Douglas has been able to put me on a different track, where a much better quality of life is not anymore a remote aspiration. A great professional and a great motivator, who has been key in changing my habits and the way I look to working out.

“Coach Wu's attention to detail is unmatched and his knowledge far supersedes that of any other coach I have ever met."

 

Coach Wu has been training me in the Olympic lifts for the past 6 months. I went from not knowing how to overhead squat with very limited mobility to a 80kg Snatch PR in 3 months. His attention to detail is unmatched and his knowledge far supersedes that of any other coach I have ever met or seen in the fitness industry. Looking forward to many more sessions and perhaps a competition soon.
