Longevity 2022 – Year In Review

It’s December already?! Longevity’s year in review.

2022 .. what a year. The world has experienced yet another year of highs and lows. We saw borders continue to open up for travel so loved ones could be united and people could continue to explore the world. It has also been the year of sporting events – The cricket, soccer and rugby world cups, the winter Paralympics and Olympics.

This year has seen Longevity grow to 10 locations – Drummoyne, EdgecliffMarrickville, Castle Hill, RandwickPymble, Kingsgrove, Neutral Bay, Coburg – Melbourne, and Barrie, Ontario – Canada. – 9 across Australia expanding to Coburg and Kingsgrove, whilst relocating from Bella Vista to Castle Hill and moving international, to Barrie in Ontario, Canada. Not only did we grow in locations – the Longevity family has grown in members, adding 9 new practitioners!

2022 has been a massive year for Longevity and we couldn’t have done it without you. We have the biggest team yet meaning we have been able to help more people than ever.

This year we did over 26,000 sessions and helped over 1,100 new clients. Our team really pushed to help as many members of our community as we can and we couldn’t do it without you. We have loved training with all of you and those who referred their personal networks to us, trusting us to help your loved ones.

Not only did we train more members of the wider community, 2022 saw more members of Longevity booking in for sessions with their colleagues. This ranged from training for general health to Jarrat doing his pre-habilitation for his hip surgery.

 “I finally committed to my physical health, training 3-5 times a week and it has completely turned around/managed my mental health” Nikki who had trained with Andrew this year.
