At Longevity Personal Training and Exercise Physiology Edgecliff, Lindfield, Marrickville and Randwick we treat and train many different types of clients with a vast range of professions. We see anything from top level athletes, office workers, tradesmen, fellow health professionals and even teenagers.
What does Longevity offer?
An important component of our treatment is to find out what the daily life of our client entails and prescribe appropriately to ensure that while we treat the issue, we also improve the daily life of the patient.
At Longevity, we are also crucially aware of the difficulties and stress the Emergency Services deal with every day of their job. Their mental capacity is challenged as well as physical, having to deal with incredibly stressful and challenging situations and in very high-risk situations.
The physical capabilities required of the Emergency Services is incredibly high, as many of the life or death situations they face involve carrying very heavy loads in awkward positions repeatedly.
The life of an Emergency Worker
The Emergency medical service (EMS) world recently produced an article related to the life of an Emergency service worker. The current average life span of a Paramedic is only 5 years due to burnout, injury or stress related psychological issues. In the US an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) is 3 times more likely to sustain an injury than any other labour worker.
Just as we would train an athlete to better perform at their sport and reduce the chance of injury, we must do the same for our Emergency Services and any other professions.
What is Longevity offering Emergency Services employees?
Many of our Accredited Exercise Physiologists have a significant amount of experience treating and training the Emergency Services. We understand the difficulties they face on the job and understand how hard it can be to continue for long hours with constant back pain, worrying about what a shift might entail when shoulder pain is present or worrying about getting through another full on night shift.
The Longevity staff love and appreciate all the work the Emergency services provide to our community. As a token of our appreciation, we want to offer all of our services at a reduced cost, to all of those in the Emergency services needing treatment or ongoing training. This offer is available with any of our Exercise Physiologists at any of our clinics, Edgecliff, Lindfield, Randwick and Marrickville.
We would love to help as much as we can to ensure that all the men and women who help and protect us everyday are as strong and pain free as possible.
