Before Mike came to RAW Personal Training he had used many different gyms and trainers in Hong Kong. He had suffered on and off from lower back pain and tightness for several years. He had hired a personal trainer who taught him Yoga, Crossfit and Pilates. All of which helped with his flexibility, mobility and general fitness. However, the pain and tightness still persisted.
Mike had heard about RAW Personal Training from a colleague.
He met with Jeremy Meyer, who took him through an initial fitness assessment.
After the initial assessment Jeremy determined that Mikes 12 week goals would be:
Reduce his body fat by 10% in 12 weeks by following RAW’s step by step nutritional advice.
Completely get rid of his back pain by using RAW’s injury rehabilitation program.
Mike had many energy dips in his energy levels throughout the day. He wanted to address this. RAW personal training in Hong Kong would provide sound nutritional advice in order to address this issue.
During his sessions at RAW, Mike learnt that structural imbalances are major strength discrepancies between the left and right sides of the front and back of your body.
The tightness he always experienced was more a result of muscle weakness and the body having to compensate in other areas.
This put undue strain on his back so increasing strength in the right areas and focusing on injury rehabilitation would be key for addressing these structural imbalances.
By following RAW’s systematic approach to training, lifestyle, nutritional advice and injury rehabilitation, Mike was able to address the structural balance issues and has relieved his back pain and tightness. In addition to increasing strength, Mike lost 11.5% body fat.
