As the owner of Back Yourself Fitness my personal goal for all of our clients is to make sure we're there to help every way we can. I pride myself on being a support network for my clients and making sure they're focused on what they want to achieve. Each session I put clients through a workout that is specifically designed to help take a step closer to their specific goals. Your age, ability, disability, limitations or experience in a gym is a non-issue and I make sure that every client feels comfortable and there is always a workout we can get through. I started Back Yourself Fitness to help improve people's health and lifestyle, and since the business began back in 2014 I've been amazed by the results my clients have been able to achieve.
My goal and main motivation is helping you reach your goal, whatever that may be. It could be as simple as getting out of bed by yourself again, achieving your goal weight, or improving your sporting and running capabilities to run faster, jump higher, or be more athletic. As the average human age is increasing, I want to make sure everyone I work with has the mobility and independence to move how they want and live a pain free life. I work with a variety of ages and fitness experiences, and always give the same level of professionalism, advice, and knowledge to every client. I will work with you to find out what exercises, programs, and plans that would benefit you.
At Essential Strength we are committed to getting the mind and body working in cooperation to increase strength, relieve stress, prevent injury, reduce pain and improve movement.
