Today, Longevity Exercise Physiology Longevity Drummoyne, EdgecliffMarrickvilleCastle HillRandwickPymbleKingsgrove, Neutral Bay and Coburg. share one of our greatest client success stories. Craig has been a Longevity client for over 12 years, beginning sessions in 2011.Craig shares his story of how Longevity changed his attitude towards health forever.

12 years ago, Craig was 115kg, working a high stress job and completely inactive. Craig received a wake up call in 2011 when he suffered a heart attack. Craig admits in the past, in stereotypical Male fashion, he had  pushed his health to the side and didn’t seek medical help often. After his heart attack, he knew he could no longer ignore his fate. He decided to make a change and take back control.

Craig’s Son was already a Longevity client, training with Longevity Director Jarrat Wood twice a week. Encouraged by his Son, Craig visited Jarrat at our Edgecliff gym. Fast forward 12 years and Craig is still a Longevity client, training three times a week.

Craig was surprised how quickly he began to enjoyed his sessions with Longevity. Having had had some poor experiences within gyms and other trainers in the past, let alone never enjoying training itself, Craig was initially sceptical.  Longevity’s unique approach and style of training changed any preconceived ideas Craig had about exercise. Craig was finally getting the education, motivation and support he needed.

Every session for Craig was interesting and unique. Craig enjoys receiving constant education about the role of exercise for managing his heart health. He also loves how he has never done the same session twice, making every session exciting and challenging in its own way.

It was nice to see a medical professional that actually cared, Jarrat was genuine and so are my other Exercise Physiologists Angela, Grace, Ellen and Shannon. 

But most of all, Craig says he enjoys the great sense of community at Longevity. He built relationships with the other clients, gym members and Longevity Exercise Physiologists. Although Craig initially came to Longevity to address his physical health, Craig reports feeling the most change in his mental health, which dramatically improved since starting sessions at Longevity.

It’s such a good start to the day, I feel so much more energetic and now that I’ve been coming for so long its almost ingrained into my daily routine

Craig’s Granddaughters were born in 2018 and 2020. Having two little girls to run and keep up with gave him a new perspective on ageing and health. 

Exercising regularly allows me to be the best grandfather I can be – I have the energy to play, be active and have such a positive relationship with the girls

Craig is now a Longevity client for life! Longevity gave Craig the chance to take control of his health through personalised Longevity Exercise prescription. He’s a better boss, Husband, Dad and Granddad.
