Client Success Stories: our highlights over the past year!

Here at Longevity Exercise Physiology, we strive to see our clients achieve the best results they can. Over the last year, we have been hit by many different hurdles, but we have still seen lots of people achieve goals in the health and exercise space.

Today, Annabel and the teams at Longevity Exercise Physiology Drummoyne, EdgecliffMarrickvilleBella VistaRandwickPymbleBalmainNeutral Bay, Coburg – Melbourne, and Barrie, Ontario – Canada will share some of our amazing client achievements over the past 12 months. We acknowledge that this year has been particularly difficult for us all. Our clients were able to overcome the challenges they faced during lockdown to still achieve some incredible results. Below are a few brief snippets of what some of our clients have achieved this year, there were too many to list them all!

Drummoyne Exercise Physiologist James:

One of my clients joined the gym and participated in the promo sessions available. When she first saw me, she had no experience in the gym, and didn’t know how to use any machines except for the treadmill. She has anxiety and PTSD and was really intimated by the gym. Having now seen me for 9 weeks, she had improved her strength and aerobic capacity, and now knows how to use every machine in the gym, as well as free weights. When she first saw me, she could horizontal leg press 20kg, and can now incline leg press 60kg. Last session she broke down into happy tears when I asked how her anxiety was going, she mentioned she felt totally better and in control of her feelings, as well as being so proud of how far she’s come, and couldn’t be happier of the service & friendships she has made in the gym.

Marrickville Exercise Physiologist Isaac:

Tony is 75-year-old male who was referred by his neurologist to improve his strength and ability to complete daily tasks. When I started working with Tony, he was needing to use his hands to push himself out of a chair. Now, he can do 9 sit-to-stands out of a chair in 30 seconds without using his hands at all. Tony also says that he has been noticing that his walking and his ability to do tasks around the house has improved since he started exercising. Our testing showed that the distance he can walk in 2 minutes doubled after 6 weeks of exercise.

Bella Vista Exercise Physiologist Vaishnavi:

Mary as referred to us just over a month ago by her GP. Mary was referred to us mainly for weight loss and to begin a program of land-based exercise. Mary also experienced inconsistent pain in her ankle, so the GP also requested us to help her manage that pain with exercise. When Mary started sessions with us, she was regularly attending hydrotherapy sessions, but she undertook very little exercise on land. Mary’s main goal was to improve her energy and functional fitness, especially when walking. She particularly wanted to be able to keep up with other members of her family when walking with them. Mary also had a goal of being able to walk without her walker over longer distances. Mary has only been attending sessions with us for just over a month, but she has already noticed so much progress! She is finding it much easier to walk around and do things around the house – even other members of her family have noticed improvements in her walking! Mary is also more confident to do more, and even held her baby goddaughter for the first time!

Coburg Exercise Physiologist Stefan:

Longevity Coburg has only officially been up and running for a couple of months now and we have been hitting the ground running. I have been seeing this client for a month. Their consistency and dedication to their supervised sessions, as well as independent exercise programs, have been second to none. By being able to maintain this regularity over the past month they have been able to lose a massive 4kg. They stated they would never have been able to achieve the results without the help and support of their Exercise Physiologist, Stefan.

Neutral Bay Exercise Physiologist Matt:

Josie began training with myself in April this year and was one of my first ever clients. Josie has various complex and chronic health conditions including being a lower leg amputee. Josie struggled walking, used a cane and had poor balance. Josie was dropped to every session as she was unable to drive and required the use of our studio elevator until last week! Last week, Josie drove independently to our session after 2 years being road free, she then proceeded to walk up the stairs, drop her cane at entry, and walk in for her session. Huge win for Josie! Her consistency and adherence to training in and out of the gym has been exceptional and she’s reaping her rewards. Our team here at Neutral Bay have been so supportive of Josie and we’ve seen such a dramatic and positive change in energy, confidence, and independence!

Pymble Exercise Physiologist Grayson:

Jason has been training with Longevity Pymble for over 2 years now. When he started training with us, he weighed around 100kg, he is now under 70kg. Jason’s consistent training sessions with us has helped re-arrange his body composition towards more lean muscle mass. The transformation has been amazing to see! Jason has also started going to the gym on his own for the first time and is training more than 4 times a week. This independence is exactly what we strive for – well done Jason!

Edgecliff Exercise Physiologist Nate:

James is a client who has struggled with his motivation to exercise, his mental health, and his weight. For 4 years, he had been smoking heavily, not exercising, eating poorly and rarely leaving the house. He started working with Nate four weeks ago. In that time, he has lost 2cm off his waist circumference, hasn’t smoked a cigarette, and is enjoying exercise so much that he even uses it as a reward when he finishes a university assignment, or a task he needed to complete during the day.

Randwick Exercise Physiologist Eleni:

Simon came to Longevity after experiencing chronic pain in his lower back, right shoulder, and neck since 2013. Simon has made amazing progress over the past 9 months and has been able to significantly reduce the severity of his pain as well as the frequency of flare ups. This has come with an increase in muscular strength and mobility and reports that his motivation, energy levels and mental health have also improved. He recently achieved a deadlift PB of 45kg (initially was 9kg)! Simon did not have any prior gym experience but has now developed the confidence to complete independent gym sessions on days where he does not have a supervised session. Simon also goes on regular walks, which has been very important to ensure he reaches the recommended physical activity guidelines for adults of 150 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic training and 2 days of resistance training per week. We can’t wait to see Simon reach more of his health goals and continue to achieve great results.
