There is no doubt that modern life is stressful and most people struggle to get the balance right. We believe that a healthy mind is the key to a healthy body and although we might not be able to do anything about your demanding boss or clients, keep your neighbours quiet or reduce traffic chaos, we can arm you with the tools to help you deal with the stress. Depending on your needs, we have a range of tools to help from mindfulness, meditation and yoga through to therapists specialising in treating psychological issues.
Everyone is happy to get their car serviced regularly to prevent break down, yet most of us only see a health practitioner when we have an injury. Getting regular treatment for your body keeps it functioning at its best and helps ensure you avoid injuries that interrupt your exercise, work and daily living. We have an amazing collection of therapists working across a range of treatments. All our therapists and trainers work together so you don’t have to keep repeating your story and to make sure you get the best possible integrated treatment and training.
The most common mistake people make with exercise is training too hard, too often. In short, they overtrain, which increases fatigue, the risk of injury to muscles, joints and bone and long term leads to poor sleep patterns, altered hormone levels and appetite, decreased immunity and mood swings. We’ll work with you to make sure you get the work rest balance right, so you feel and look your best, have time for life and look forward to every training session.
Strength training is typically seen as developing large, strong muscles. If that’s your goal our trainers are more than happy to help but building strength is critically important for better daily living and injury prevention. For us, strength training includes yoga, Pilates, body weight exercises, as well as traditional pin-loaded weights and free weights. Our trainers will recommend the best type of strength training for you based on your goals, body type, exercise history and most importantly what you enjoy doing.
Flexibility is vital for sports performance and all athletes work on improving theirs but more importantly flexibility effects how we move, look and feel and plays a vital role in injury prevention. Our trainers analyse your overall flexibility during your assessment, to look for areas that may be restricting your free movement, and/or the source of current or future pain, then prescribe the right exercises to help you move more freely, feel better and even look better through improved posture.
Aerobic fitness refers to your bodies efficiency in delivering oxygen to muscles. Poor aerobic fitness limits what you can do and places you at risk of cardiovascular disease. Aerobic exercise has been very heavily researched in recent years and our trainers can show you the most efficient training methods to decrease the time you need to spend developing your aerobic capacity whether your goal is to win the City to Surf or simply feel better.
Quality sleep does far more than help your daily energy levels. Lack of sleep plays havoc with our hormone levels and is directly linked to weight gain, increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and stroke, depression, impaired immune function, and of course reduced mental alertness. We’ll help with your schedule to create more time for sleep, show you ways you can develop better sleeping habits and work with you to improve the way you cope with stress, so you can improve the quality of your sleep
Eating healthy food shouldn’t be a task, it should be a pleasure. Our chefs source the freshest ingredients, then cook and combine them perfectly to bring out their natural flavours. Nothing processed, nothing artificial, no preservatives, just clean, fresh, healthy food the way it was meant to be. Sadly though, you can’t always eat at The Well, so our nutritionist and naturopath are happy to help you plan the best possible eating plan for you and your health goals.
