A year ago I was referred to Kirsten and at the time had a significant shoulder injury that I was battling with. I also had a recurring back issue, which saw me go overseas in a wheelchair the year before. The decision to see Kirsten three times a week for personal training has honestly been one of the smartest moves ever. I have never been a gym or exercise person so I would be lying if I said that I was in any way enthusiastic. I simply saw it as necessary in order to age as healthily as possible after having led a fairly sedentary life so far. Kirsten’s enthusiasm has been a winner and I won’t miss a session unless I have to. She is hugely knowledgeable and does ongoing research, which makes our sessions interesting and varied. On top of that she is just lovely to work with and makes it fun and goal orientated. At this stage I have no physical pain at all and am doing things like running regularly that I never would have dreamt of doing previously. In fact I am taking enormous pride in being a ‘gym’ girl and loving it. The benefits have been significant and I think Kirsten is stuck with me for life!!!! Kirsten you are amazing and I feel very grateful for your ongoing guidance and wisdom.
I started adventure fitness last year 2017 August with Kirsten not having exercised in many years after having my kids and breaking my ankle which resulted in very limited movement in my ankle. After the first two month I could see results. My ankle felt great and I have more mobility than I had before. Every session is different so you don’t get bored and I always feel like I have achieved something after each session.
I have been going to a personal trainer for a number of years now and building on my strength and fitness. I felt that I had got a lot stronger but perhaps was losing some flexibility as I aged( I am 57 now). Someone recommended that I chat to Kirsten. She devised a plan for me and I have been seeing her twice a week for about 3 months now. We have been working on flexibility using dynamic stretching as well as activating my core and other areas of weakness I had. It has been a real eye opener for me and I have benefited hugely from the work we have done. It has transformed my posture and given me so much more strength for my usual gym routines and most importantly my flexibility has improved markedly. Kirsten does a lot of research and changes the routines continuously. It has been great fun working with her and I would recommend her highly as a personal trainer.
“A year ago I did my first trail run- 8km. I completed it and was so happy! A year later I finished the 3 Cranes challenge- just under 100km over 3 days. My goal was to complete it comfortably without injury.
Thanks to Kirsten I achieved my goal -and it feels amazing! She told me exactly what to do for the 4 months I had to train. I did it and it worked. Thank you!”
