Listen To Your Body
The only way to get you the health & fitness results you are after – is to take the time to find out exactly what YOU want to achieve.
For every person this is subtlety different. We each have our own body niggles and limitations, so as your trainer – we take the time to find out where your body is at - so that the exercises we prescribe firstly do not injure you, and secondly are matched to your unique needs.
We cater to many fitness levels – but are not for everyone.
For beginners – LTYB is a great place to start. Many LTYB members are “first time in a gym” – and the fear of joining can be “I have no idea what to do” or “am I doing this exercise right”. We love to teach…...so take great enjoyment in showing newbies how to use the equipment and get the exercises just right. We also take pride in ensuring a comfortable, non-intimidating environment. Part of this philosophy includes no mirrors.
We are not into “fad diets”, rapid weight loss, or unsustainable short term results. We very much have a 52 week a year philosophy - to keep you moving physically, and in a positive mental space all year round. Many members who join are pursuing weight loss - so once we help you lose the weight, we want to make sure the weight stays off.....for good.
Other members join to gain strength, increase bone density, achieve more flexibility or improve their cardio for their local sport activities like netball, football, soccer and basketball.
As you progress with your fitness – we have a full range of strength and cardio equipment to keep workouts varied and motivated every session. Variety is the spice of life! And there is nothing less motivating than doing the same old exercises week in , week out.
Our sessions are unique – and the best way to understand is to come along and try one for free – to see if it is to your liking. If you don't enjoy the session - it will have cost you nothing and you can just sneak out and never come back :)
If you are interested - we'd love to have you along - just pop your details in above "Get In Touch" – and we will give you a quick call to learn your goals, say hello and see if we are the right fit for you.
