Client Success Story: How John beat his knee

Today, Longevity Exercise Physiology Drummoyne, EdgecliffMarrickvilleCastle HillRandwickPymbleKingsgrove, Neutral Bay, and Coburg, would like to share the amazing progress of one of our clients, John*, and what he has achieved since working with our Exercise Physiologists in Randwick.

“John began training with the Randwick team following a swollen knee after a workplace incident. John had rheumatoid and seronegative arthritis which would swell up and cause him a lot of discomfort whenever he experienced large amounts of stress. John used to have to get his knee drained and has had close to TWENTY cortisone injections!

John began working with our Randwick Exercise Physiologists twice a week. John’s sessions consisted of both high intensity cardiovascular training as well a resistance training. John’s previous experience had only been group-fitness style workouts with no proper resistance or strength training. Having an individualised exercise program  allowed John to improve his strength and fitness very quickly.

John progressed his repetition max single-leg press from 5 reps to sixteen reps 16 reps on both sides in just six weeks! Our retesting showed he had an increase of 400% for his maximal strength, which is huge progress in such a short period of time!

John can now manage flare-ups better and he has not needed to have his knee drained or have any more cortisone injections.

A word from John…

“The Randwick team has put up with an old fart in the most professional manner. His caring manner has helped me both physically and mentally and I love the variety of exercise that has made a real difference in my rehab journey.”
