Your Personal Training session offers individualised prescription, tailed expertly to suit your desired outcomes.
To simplify what is available and help you get the most out of your session with one of our trainers, please consider one of the following options;
Cardiovascular fitness – Of particular relevance to guests wishing to improve heart and lung health and efficiency, this style of session is designed to safely extend the participants ability to perform physical work. Best summarised as a “huff and puff workout”, our trainers will draw on various training apparatus and techniques to improve your aerobic efficiency.
Movement for optimum health and ageing – With an emphasis on functional health, this style of session looks at both the muscular-skeletal system as well as the neuro-muscular system. Addressing age specific issues such as joint disorders, osteoporosis prevention, prevention of slips trips and falls, as well as physical strength capabilities. Integrating stability, strength, range of movement and cardio-vascular modalities.
Strength and Resistance training – Though the use of traditional fixed machine based apparatus, free weights, and body weight exercises and more current resistance training tools such as Power Bands, Kettle Bells or suspension trainers, this style of session is all about shaping up and tightening up. Learn the latest training techniques and tools that provide the best strength based outcomes.
Flexibility and Mobility training – At Golden Door our trainers see this as one of the most under-rated components of physical health. At the foundation of much chronic pain and postural imbalance is a lack of range of movement in associated joints and/or underlying dominances within the body. The emphasis of this style of session is on alleviating stiffness, soreness, tightness and imbalances.
Water-based training and rehabilitation – Not just for the swimmers, this style of training has the unique feature of being non weight bearing as an advantage over other modalities. Taking the load of the joints frees up the rest of the body to extend itself. The inherent resistance of water to movement promotes all of the exercise outcomes, cardio-vascular, strength, stability and range of movement in a supportive physical environment.
