Testimonials

  • David Mummery has been my personal trainer for approximately four years. When I commenced training with him I was still 10 kg from my goal weight ( having lost 10 kg through my own efforts) and was looking to develop strength and muscle tone. Consistent training with David, including nutritional advice and additional cardio work, has resulted in my losing an extra 15 kg and developing the kind of strength I'd never achieved before. I can squat 85kg and can perform twelve chin ups unassisted. This has completely exceeded my expectations, with friends and family saying that I am transformed. I haven't felt this fit and healthy since I was a teenager and I now have the energy levels to match. David's training has helped me heal a challenging glut med injury and allowed me to take my own body weight on a broken wrist that doctors said I would never gain full use of. David's work has caused me to re-define what I thought was possible in terms of my physical fitness and well being. The results he has achieved with me are nothing short of astounding. I'd recommend his services to anyone looking for great results from their training.

We have good evidence that regular exercise can help protect against breast cancer, and it makes sense that risks of developing other types of cancer could be linked to lack of physical activity.

Our bodies evolved in very demanding environments and are meant to be used… Many of the illnesses that plague our society result from sedentary behaviors….I’m not sure that a two-minute break every hour is the answer to spending all day seated at a desk, but I am in favor of anything that increases the motivation to get you up and moving regularly.”

There is nothing surprising about these findings, but many people obviously have to work to earn a crust and a significant amount of that is spent at a desk so what can be done about our sedentary work style and posture, specifically forward head carriage?
