Longevity Exercise Physiology Drummoyne, Edgecliff, Marrickville, Bella VistaRandwickLindfieldand Balmain work with individuals of varying abilities, experience and vastly different goals. However, one thing remains consistent among all our clients, they train consistently! Today we share Kim’s* story to show you people out there just like you can achieve amazing results in the gym.

Kim is prediabetic and has a history of chronic shoulder and knee pain. Kim had never been to a gym before until she began training with our Exercise Physiologist Georgia.

Kim never saw herself as a fitness fanatic but has been amazed at just how much she has come to love exercise and the results that have followed! Kim has been training with Georgia at least once a week for several months now and has lost several centimetres from her waist circumference, been able to stay off blood sugar medication through lifestyle intervention and can walk significantly longer distances without knee pain.

Reading the above you might think that Kim has had to train morning and night seven days a week to achieve those results, but you would be wrong. Kim still works and keeps herself very busy, so it was important to find a way to introduce regular exercise into Kim’s routine while still allowing her to meet her other commitments. Under the guidance and advice of her Exercise Physiologist Georgia, Kim and Georgia were able to develop a strategy that was specific to Kim’s goals and health history and took into account her busy schedule.

Kim completes a home strength program at least two times a week outside of her face-to-face session with Georgia in the gym. Kim also makes sure she walks for at least 30 minutes 5 days a week so that she meets the Australian Physical Activity Guidelines of 150minutes of moderate aerobic exercise and two strength sessions a week

Kim completes a home strength program at least two times a week outside of her face-to-face session with Georgia in the gym. Kim also makes sure she walks for at least 30 minutes 5 days a week so that she meets the Australian Physical Activity Guidelines of 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise and two strength sessions a week. Although Kim only sees Georgia once a week, Georgia checks in with Kim regularly during the week to keep her motivated and monitor her progress.

Kim is a great example of someone who decided to make a change and was able to do so in a sensible and a sustainable way. Her only regret is that she didn’t start sooner! Kim has since encouraged those close to her to re-evaluate their current physical activity and consult an exercise physiologist, because under the correct guidance, absolutely anyone can and should be exercising.
