How has Lockdown 2.0 treated you? Or, an even better question, how have you treated Lockdown 2.0?

A common conversation we have been having with clients and the general public is regarding the difficulties individuals are having maintaining or losing weight in this challenging time. Here at Longevity we understand!

Exercise Physiologists come equipped with the skills and knowledge to aid individuals aiming to lose weight, in a very safe manner

How can an Exercise Physiologist help?

Exercise Physiologists come equipped with the skills and knowledge to aid individuals aiming to lose weight, in a very safe manner. During an initial consultation, both subjective and objective information is gathered to understand the clients’ likes, dislikes, previous efforts and where the individual currently sits in “normative” data. This allows us to prescribe exercise that is suitable for our client’s current level of exercise tolerance; resulting in movement that is safe and tailored for the client. It can also be monitored, altered and modulated when necessary.

If you are an individual who may be considered a “novice” in the exercise setting, aiming to commence exercise but may not know where to begin, or searching for tailored and specific exercise – Exercise Physiology is for you.
