There has to be more to life than just being physically fit. Many people end up with preventable injuries and life long pain in their pursuit of fitness. Of course, life will always have pain. Humans will always experience anxiety and stress — it’s part of being human. Yet, there are things we can do to better cope with these challenges, and prevent them from blowing up into serious problems.
Back in 2011, we started as your typical “get fit” gym. We took influence from Crossfit and boot camp style training, and held classes based around exercises you would imagine would be done in those settings. After sometime, we noticed something we didn’t like: our clients were often in pain, and new clients coming to us were often recovering from some kind of workout related injury! We couldn’t help but wonder, “what in the world is happening here?”
It was then that we knew something was missing. People come to the gym to feel good, get healthy, and build strength and stamina, yet they were not hitting these goals. Instead they were doing quite the opposite, getting stuck in the land of aches and pains. Something had to change! So we started to ask questions, do some research, and after collaborating with osteopaths, massage practitioners, chiropractors, neurologists, and physical therapists, we began to see the light.
