Has been with Element Fitness for just over a year and is one of our most consistent members training 6 days a week and has already clocked over 180 visits since joining in 2021. He loves the atmosphere here at Element. He says the staff are always friendly and welcoming and enjoys interacting with other members while he is training.
I love training at Element because of the fun and friendly culture. The staff are professional and friendly who always have time for questions or feedback. The members are sociable and motivated.
Since starting Reformer Pilates I have improved flexibility and much less lower back pain, less visits to osteo, Happily have lost a lot of cm’s from all parts of my body. Especially abdomen have lost 10cm.
For the first time in my life, going to the gym and exercising is a part of my day. I start most days with a workout or a walk to wake up my mind, body and spirit for the day ahead. I don't feel like I need to balance exercise with the rest of my life, exercise is just a part of my routine now and I am so much better for it. My advice for anyone is to start now, don't over think it, the hardest part is starting, start slowly with small goals, build up to the bigger goals, take one day at a time.
Lasantha has a wealth of knowledge and understands my body’s limitations coming back from such a major injury. He’s given me a good strength exercises and works with me to gradually build up the muscles that have wasted away, and I am now getting to that phase where I can start to incorporate some much needed cardio into the training as well, which my body has missed.
I joined as I was looking for a place with a rig to do weightlifting but also the flexibility of classes. Pilates has been my constant when I've not had the motivation to make it to workout in the gym. The team at Element have brought a community where you are met with a wave and a hello when you come in.
Colin has been member of Element for 8 years! He has achieved significant weight loss and says that "Exercising has also been good for my mind body and soul." "I love training at Element because the gym is nice and clean. The staff are really friendly. Big mention to the pts especially Teena!"
I love training at Element because it has a good atmosphere, Friendly staff, and a good crew of trainees. Through training with Lasantha my strength has improved, my weight has dropped and my ability to combine complex exercise has also improved.
I started with Dwayne after I had had some medical procedures done and gained weight. I didn’t like the way I looked and that impacted my self- esteem and my confidence. Dwayne has been fantastic. I am stronger now and have more of an idea about nutrition. I have dropped 2-3 sizes in my clothes and I am getting my cardio fitness back to where it was.
The challenge has also had me reflecting on my personal journey towards health and fitness. I am currently two and a half years into this journey, and I plan on staying the course for the rest of my life. When I re-joined the gym two and a half years ago I was unfit and unhealthy. I was definitely carrying more weight than I should. I am proud of what I have achieved since then. I need to keep in mind and remember just how far I have come. Some days I look at my body and it doesn’t look like my body. I am probably in the best shape that I have ever been in my entire life.
Before I joined the Gym, I would spend 8 hours plus a day in meetings or hunched over a computer. This developed poor posture and tension in my neck, shoulders and back leading to regular chiropractor appointments and almost weekly neck massages to relieve the knots. Since I began training and subsequently retired from paid work, I have not needed an appointment with the Chiropractor and only get a neck massage around six times a year. I now walk with much more freedom and I am pain free.
I remember telling Lasantha that one of my fitness goals was just to generally "tone up" and I don't think I actually knew what that meant. Lasantha has given me a great leeway into the world of fitness and has helped me really make use of my membership in terms of using the vast amount of equipment that the gym has to offer. The overall environment and atmosphere at Element has always been so welcoming and friendly, all the equipment is clean and organised and the classes are well run too.
I love all the friendly staff and the other gym members. I’m always greeted at the door, and everyone is always nice and friendly. The equipment at the gym is great, it’s close and convenient for me.
I thought as the owner of Element Fitness I would share my fitness journey as well
It’s so nice to be back at a smaller gym like Element where everyone is so friendly, all the members, instructors and reception staff. I always feel so welcome, Element is such an inclusive gym and I feel really connected and comfortable here.
I've joined the Virtual classes in April since the first lock down started. I enjoy the varieties and well balanced classes offered each week. Because it's virtual, I have the convenience and time flexibility to try most of the classes and include my favorite classes into my daily routine.
I am very grateful to be part of the virtual Element fitness community and it has been great doing virtual classes with the crew at Element during lockdown in Melbourne. I have enjoyed the interaction with all the instructors and other members. It is hard to stay motivated when you exercise at home by yourself so having virtual classes really help
During the second lockdown Craig has dedicated himself to a better diet and attending many of Element's virtual classes. "I have have lost 10.8kg in just over 2 months! ?♂"
Every day l have either been doing a class or a recorded class l have lost 2 kilos. Very happy with this little win
Working out regularly has improved my body shape and fitness levels. I’ve made some great friends that I love to work out with, and it feels good to have this time to myself to work on ME!
I joined the gym last July after a period of a couple of years of some health concerns that resulted in weight gain and chronic pain & fatigue.I was made…
