Tabitha is a very professional trainer. Well knowlege in body anatomy and alignment, hard working and truly cares about people. In group classses, she always make sure she finds time to chat with students after the workout is completed. A friendly and encouraging teacher that teaches us patience and self love. One of her main teaching is small efforts goes a long way.
Indeed if we rush for results, got injured we will have to rest and recover, taking us many steps back.
To go further into learning fitness, I decided to go for private personal training where the trainer understand your problems and limitations as well as strengths to create a cutomised plan. I understand what all of you might be thinking. Personal training?! I’snt it expensive? Are you sure? Group classes can workout too. Let me say it clearly, it was the best decision I ever made.
Bodytree Pilates is not just a typical fitness company, they are a holistic fitness and wellness studio where trainers have a real calling to help improve lives.
It not only helped me attain my fitness goals but also my long term gastric issues. Wait what? gastric isnt that for doctors? Let me explain.
From Tabitha’s simple ” how are you feeling?” question, I shared my problems. Tabitha listened to my woes and with her good knowledge of holistic wellness, I was recommended to a pain relief clinic.
To put things into context, I had gastric issues since 14 years old and for more than 10 years of visiting specialised gastrology clinics and endoscopies, no doctors could tell me what is wrong. All I was given is medicine to ease the symptons. Of course eventually, no medicine worked.
The simple act of listening and caring from my trainer freed me from belief that I will never find health and led a normal life. It was simply just gluten intolerance (Celiac disease) and I am actually a healthy young person!
Bodytree trainers indeed have big pool of knowledge and it is worth the personal training price.
Onto the topic of fitness, I found out that what i have been doing was against my body type/condition. From the first few P.T sessions, Tabitha was able to assess that I am a very mobile body and that is why I always get injured with workouts at home or even guided yoga studios. What I need is to strengthen endurance muscles that are useful in holding postures and simple day to day activities, muscles that we never know about, rather than big muscles with big movements that we know of normally. Example a bird dog pose hold versus a burpee.
Would you imagine a holding pose on a mat could be harder than a burpee? Neither was I! Thanks to the good knowledge of my trainer on body anatomy, I could gear myself to a strong body now that I have the right direction.
I truly hope for more people to question and probe more in their health and well being. The freedom to health is so precious, no money or job promotion can replace health and wellness. With health, money and job fulfillment will eventually come, have patience and have love yourself.
I highly recommend trying out Bodytree group as it is definetely a good place to start understanding your problems and then treating them.
Lastly, cheers and a big thank you to Tabitha whom helped me find solutions to my body issues, giving me confidence and hope for the future!
