Someone once said to me ‘if you’re in the right job, you’d do it for free’. I definitely love my job and would do it for free – if we didn’t have four little mouths to feed; so I know I have made the right decision. Yay! Though it’s not just a job for me. It’s my passion. I truly love having a client feel and see their results, meet their goals, be more relaxed, improve their diet, boost their motivation and be able to smile.
I have just returned from Melbourne this week where I became a fully Accredited Rehab Trainer. This enables me to assist clients and group fitness participants with correcting techniques and muscles instabilities through using muscle release techniques and activation drills. This helps them to get the most out of their workout by being able to use their muscles to the fullest capacity. It is amazing.
Day 1, we focused on the Lower limbs (glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps and hip flexors).
Day 2 , we focused on the Upper limbs (arms, shoulders, upper back and neck).
Day 3, this was totally amazing for me (having previously experienced severe back pain requiring surgery), we focused on the entire spine (cervical, thoracic and lumbar).
So if you feel even the slightest niggle throughout the body during a session or even throughout your day, and you’re unsure what is causing it, it’s worth an ask about muscle release techniques. In a room full of Personal Trainers and Physiotherpists, we found many of us needed to work on areas we didn’t even realise were over tense/hypertonic on ourselves.
Keep feelin’ the energy guys xo
