Where you’re at
You are working your body hard for a while now but you have started to get tired and you ache or are in pain at the end of the day. You may have some wear and tear in your joins as shown on a x ray or MRI
Maybe you’re even worried about burnout but don’t want or can’t stop what you are doing. You want help with helping your body to recover but you want a program that will allow you to keep active without the pain that it currently brings.
What Your Issues Tend To Be
You are physically very active but you feel like its wearing your body out. You have even invested in many forms of treatments and have been prescribed medication to help but with little long term relief. You want to continue with your activities but you want someone to structure a long term plan that is achievable, realistic and will give you results. You want help with a plan to stop the pain and allow you to continue to lead your current lifestyle.
What You Need Help With Right Now
You need a full assessment to highlight what is important to you and what you want to achieve in the short, medium and long term.
You will need to start a program by having movement introduced throughout your skeletal system to free up stiff joints and reduce muscle tension. You need to be open to new ideas on what is best for you right now from a health perspective.
You then need to reorganise your exercise regime to incorporate prescribed advice to help you assist your body to remain active and improve your mobility. This may involve challenging your body to move in ways that you are not in your daily routine.
The Program That Will Suit You Best Is The Gold Program
This program is specifically designed for you if you are retired but still have an exercise schedule and want it to continue. You’re in need of learning what is smarter not harder. You know how important it is to keep active and exercising and you want a “what do I do now” to enable me to keep doing what I do.
The GOLD program is also suitable for the busy self employed tradesman who is not able to spend time exercising and is working long hours. Having time away from work is not an option and you want a maintenance program to keep you fit and well.
You want to follow a proven step by step regime that you know will quickly start to change the way your body has to deal with your lifestyle.
You initially want treatments that are designed to remove unwanted tightness and tension and begin a process to mobilise and stimulated areas of your body that are currently under used. You want prescribed exercises that you can refer to and follow on a daily basis to prevent your symptoms returning and will keep you moving to the full range.
Clients on the GOLD program are typically looking for a long term maintenance program which can be supplemented with home exercises to maintain a flexible, mobile, relaxed and pain free body.
