Having been accepted into the Berlin Marathon earlier in the year, I was panicking a bit because I hadn't done much running at all - I couldn't physically run for more than a mile or so because of a problem I had in my right leg. I was recommended to MWFITNESS for a Sports Massage in the first instance and it was at that appointment that I decided to sign up for Personal Training, and thank goodness I did! Between all the PT's, they got me sorted to the point where I was able to go off and complete the marathon in just over 4 hours 35 minutes. Without the help of MWFITNESS. I wouldn't have got anywhere near finishing it! My fitness has improved massively. Now the marathon is over, we're working on strength and conditioning for my upper body. I turned 60 recently and want to take my fitness to another level...and I'm about to sign up for another marathon in April 2020!
Being so into my fitness regime it was a big blow when I found myself suffering with a back injury, whilst I had to put my running on hold I continued my weekly PT sessions at MW Fitness which was a life saver.READ MORE
The team were amazing at encouraging me both physically and mentally throughout my rehabilitation. They were positive and reassured me when I was down about my recovery, remaining focused on getting me fit again by listening to my concerns and making a plan that I felt confident with on how we would achieve it. Together we spent my sessions strengthening my core and glutes doing a variety of exercises, eventually in a short space of time building up to be able to push myself harder back into my normal training routine feeling confident and stronger. They focused on giving me direction and the confidence to explore other forms of exercise and to realise that running isn't the be all and end all! I would highly recommend working through any injury with the team at MW Fitness, their knowledge was paramount in my recovery and I trusted them completely to know how would get to be back to where I needed to be fitness wise.
