Welcome to our Client of the Month Page – it is early days yet but something we are really excited to have started.  Why do we do it? Because it is a chance for us to recognise our clients efforts be it how long they’ve been coming or perhaps achieving their goal or just because they are committed to their health – Enjoy reading about our clients as we love learning more about them.

Nearly two years ago I was a reluctant debutante when invited to join Tuesday’s Senior Ladies group.  Having previously briefly experienced, and disliking, gymnasium workouts elsewhere, I was not keen to revisit.  But very quickly I grew to thoroughly enjoy my sessions at ALTA Fitness.  JC’s program is rigorous as we ‘golden oldies’ become fitter and healthier, all the while having fun and forging friendships.  Tuesdays were not enough so I joined the Thursday Senior Ladies with Lisa.  Again we exercise and have fun.  I became addicted.  As well as the Tuesday and Thursday sessions I now have a one-on-one session with JC on Wednesdays.  People have commented on my improved physique, and my stamina and fitness have increased dramatically.

My husband, Michael, previously an anti-exercise person who has some physical challenges, caught my ALTA fitness bug and now works with JC twice per week.  Michael is thrilled with his improved health and mobility and, too, is now an exercise convert.  We feel so much better!

Thank you so much Jen for being the awesome client you are, (or should we say Jane from Tarzan’s fame) from the ALTA Fitness Team

Adriana

To the beautiful Adriana – inside and out we have loved that Adriana chose us to get herself physically fitter for her wedding to Mitch on the 18th November – Congratulations to you both for a long, love filled, happy life together.

I came to Alta Fitness in February as I’m getting married in November and wanted to work on my overall physique and fitness. A wedding is great motivation!

The changes I have seen have been enormous. My overall fitness has improved dramatically, I’m more toned, healthy and each week see a gradual improvement, no matter how big or small. Lisa has been incredible and pushed me in ways I couldn’t do on my own. I’ve also met some wonderful people at the studio who I look forward to seeing each week.

ALTA fitness has completely changed my lifestyle for the better. Although I came to ALTA to look and feel better for my wedding, this has now changed my perception and I will be training at the studio long after the wedding! A big thank you to JC, Linda and Lisa for all their support!

Thank you again, I’m honestly chuffed to be your client of the month :). And so are we – thankyou from the ALTA Fitness Team

Fitness at Alta – Why or Why not? From someone who definitely isn’t and never was

As an old codger of nearly 80 years, and with metal in 5 joints, and neck and lower spinal damage, I felt that my very painful and difficult walking requiring the use of a walking stick occasionally ( and extreme difficulty in going up stairs) was going to continue to deteriorate. My work as a vet had involved lifting of dogs up to about 35 kgs, and farm work on weekends, and had tended to keep a very modest amount of fitness.

About 6 months ago, my daughter became concerned, and investigated who in the Eastern suburbs might be good at helping such an old codger, and with her 3 siblings gave me four sessions at Alta as a birthday present, with the realisation that I probably would not continue afterwards — her husband bet her that it was unlikely that I would use the 4 freebies, and absolutely no chance of continuing afterwards. He lost the bet!!

Six months on, with twice weekly sessions, I can walk up the stairs at home much more freely, even though it is still painful, but with much more flexibility, and my strength in legs and arms has improved, not markedly (but at least my wife is no longer stronger than I am, as in the past).

At this stage, I have every intention for continuing, hopefully to improve further but with the realisation that I will probably just be maintaining what I have gained, and I am very grateful for all the hard work that JC has put into getting things to this degree of improvement, and I would certainly suggest that if you get the right person to help you in your arthritic dotage, life might be more comfortable and with a considerable improvement in the spring in your step.

In conclusion I must add that having a metal knee that needs further surgery JC has been very careful not to push that joint to the point of further damage.
