Fix 'n' Fit
Do you ever think to yourself that I wish I could play sport like I did when I was 20, or wish I could run a half marathon again?
At Fit 4 Life we believe that wishes can come true with the right help and determination and we love nothing better than to 'fix' people and their bodies. Whether it's a current injury, recovering from an operation or a new niggle that has recently arose, we like to analyse and help.
How does it work?
Obviously each case is very different but the main steps are:
Talk and Understand
The first thing is to talk and get a clear idea of expectation and end goal.
Movement and Balance
Then we need to get an idea of how your body moves and where the issues lie, a movement and balance assessment is always a good place to start. This is a non evasive assessment that will provide a snapshot of your body at that time. It will give us a baseline to work from and revisit.
Plan and Exercise
Once we understand restrictions and movement we can customise a training and lifestyle plan for you. We like to keep it simple but leave no stone unturned to help improve both the mental and physical abilities when it comes to your body.
Review and Restore
As with all restorative programs it takes time and it's as important to review as it is to exercise so this will be very much part of your plan.
Can you really help?
Most people can be 'fixed' but it does take time as the body may have to relearn or turn on muscles that have not been used for a while. It's important to understand that the body is a complex piece of equipment and reacts in different ways which may not seem logical to us. But with attention and consistent movement it can heal.
Who do you help?
Over the years we have helped all sorts of people recover, whether its from an operation, from a life long complaint or a re-occuring niggle. The end result is important but it's the journey and how you get there that that is key.

❇️ Leg length difference (due to accident)
❇️ No cartilage in left knee (possible overload/wear due to shorter leg on other side)

He’s wanting to buffer/protect his future health so we’ll be working on both the physical, mental, social and natural talents plus other elements of his life. Part of that is achieved by understanding his Epigenetic profile (https://www.f4l.co.nz/blog/the-diplomat)
He really wants to make a difference in his role at work and creating more energy, vitality and wellness for him is crucial.
As his structural issues cannot be changed we need to work with them but with a clear understanding that Phil’s stress bucket is already somewhat filled.
Introducing small habits over time to assist him manage and reduce his stress load elsewhere his body is more likely to adapt and respond to the things we work on physically, enabling him to live his best life into his late 50’s and well beyond. Let's get started...
