TRX Suspension

TRX suspension training uses a strap with two handles. A versatile piece of equipment, the TRX suspension trainer can be used for a variety different exercises, with part of your body weight being used as the resistance.

Unlike many regular fitness devices that limit freedom of movement, the TRX trainer requires a more refined technique and trains stabilisation, meaning as your muscles grow stronger, they are trained to stabilise the body during movement too.
The TRX trainer also works the core (Centre of the body, abdominal and lower back muscles) and therefore you become stronger through your entire body, as opposed to working one part and developing ‘weak spots’. As so many muscles are trained at the same time, energy consumption increases after training, improving your metabolism too.

TRX suspension training is an effective way to train your core muscles, gain greater body control and increase your metabolism in a short, high intensity exercise.

Sport Fasting


Sports fasting is a great way to give yourself a new boost, to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. It is not a diet. It is a 10-day training method in which the muscles and liver are trained in the consumption of fat instead of sugar (metabolic switch).

To accomplish this switch, you need to exercise during the fasting process. This will burn more fat and reduce excess fat reserves, especially abdominal fat. Over the 10-day course, men lose an average of 4 to 6 kilograms, while women an average of 2-4. The desire for snacking and sweet treats is also reduced, as this is a body-health program, whereby weight loss is a by-product of the metabolic training.

Sport fasting is a particularly good way to improve sporting performance. The muscles are transformed in a way which means they are able to derive far more energy from fat than before. As a result, sugar, which is kept in a far lower stock, is of less concern. Endurance athletes, such as long-distance runners and cyclists, develop a much greater ability to produce energy without draining the tank. High intensity athletes, such as sprinters, can use it to increase overall conditioning. Recovery time after injury has also been seen to decrease, caused by like increase of mitochondria in the muscles.

During your 10-day programme, use the metabolic switch products to make the switch easier and more effective. Sport fasting, which is known as ‘the most powerful training method for the body to revitalise itself’ is not suitable for everyone. You will first need to develop a basic level of health, perhaps with a sports assistant coach. You cannot undertake sport fasting if you are ill, or using certain medications. You should also be prepared to continue to exercise after the course and to follow simple dietary guidelines.

Sports massage


The term sports massage might sound as though it’s only for athletes – but this is definitely not the case, as sports massages can be very useful for both athletes and non-athletes.

We often move far too suddenly, too intensively, or in the wrong way. While this can happen during sports, it can also occur in the workplace, on in your leisure time in the garden for example. This can lead to muscle aches and increased likelihood of injuries if your body is not allowed to recover properly.

Sports massage gives the body a push to work on its recovery and accelerates the process, but can also be used to prepare the body for exercise, as part of the warmup. The difference between restorative or preparatory massages is all in the pace and the handles the the sports masseuse uses.

Effects of a sports massage include:

  • Better blood flow
  • Enhanced metabolism
  • Decreased/increased muscle tension
  • Reduced stiffness
  • Reduced pain
  • Elevated mood
  • Improved sleep pattern
