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.

Ceaseless infomercials exaggerating results of fitness fads leave consumers skeptical of the benefits of anything that is popular or different, allowing myths to be perpetuated. For instance, many know that pilates was created by Joseph Pilates, but that it was developed to treat injured soldiers during World War I is less known. People often mistake pilates as an exercise for dancers, with few knowing that its creator was influenced by boxing and martial arts. Many believe yoga is about ‘twisting yourself into a pretzel’ and standing on your head, when it actually has a deeper purpose. Let's review these common myths to shed light on the enigma that is mind-body exercise.
