INSPIRING STORIES

everyone's movement journey is unique
​​
Testimonial:  "The Flexagility stretch class (Power Stretch) offers you a safe place to get an understanding of how your body works holistically. Through practical exercises you learn where your body holds tension and soreness and how your body has worked around a lifetime of physical impediments and injuries to create dominant and weaker sides. The class, under Helen's instruction and incisive guidance, gives you skills to work through those issues with the group but also by yourself so you can continue the work at home. The end result is you feel stronger, more centred and you gain a sense of how flow and flexibility are so important for physical and mental health."  Andrew,  Leura 2017​​
​​Testimonial:  "Helen from Flexagility is the most professional trainer I have ever encountered. She has the best knowledge of which muscles each move stretches, and is constantly aware of any participant's injuries or other issues which may mean an exercise has to be modified for them. I have benefited from Helen's stretch therapy and kettlebell sessions, as well as some personal training. She drives you hard, but it's all good, and after any session you know all your body has really moved. My back is a lot happier."  ​​​Jennifer, Katoomba 2017​​

Testimonial:  "Helen, I wanted  to let you know that I really enjoyed my 10 week personal training sessions.  My main goals were to get strong and feel fitter and learn how to do the exercises properly. I certainly  feel great, and it's  given me confidence and its motivated me to do your Mobilise Stretch classes now. Thanks so much Helen."  Carrie,  Leura 2017​​
​​Testimonial:  "Those 90 minute (Power Stretch) sessions with Helen are not just fun but also educational, as one gets to know so much about one's own body. The sessions are kept to small groups, maintained at a comfortable pace with constant professional attention by Helen to achieve a maximum outcome for all participants. They are great fun and have helped me to bring back balance into my body which has been aching for quite a while now, well not anymore."  ​​

​​Testimonial:  "As a person who has been struggling with lower back pain & arthritis for the last 10+  years, I was looking for a stretching class to attend in the Blue Mountains (not yoga or Pilates). Helen's  Mobilise  Stretch classes are perfect! I am always a bit stiff & achy in the lower back/hip when I first start the class, but by the time the class has finished my aches & pains have gone :)  These classes work better for me than taking pain  medication."  Mellanie,  Hazelbrook 2017​​
​​Testimonial:  "I started attending Helen's Mobilise Stretch (Stretch Therapy) classes approximately 6 months ago and so glad I did. Helen ensures you get the best out of the classes. Her considerable knowledge of the anatomy, and her instruction and guidance in the varied movement programs, enables all participants to understand the 'what', 'how' and 'why' each exercise is performed.  I have been amazed at my personal journey, and am looking forward to continuing the experience with the Kettlebell Workout and Power Stretch classes !!!!

Testimonial:  "I would highly recommend Helen as a personal trainer.  She is a little pocket rocket, full of energy and enthusiasm and always wanting to help make your experience the best it can be.  Totally professional, very knowledgable and also incredibly friendly.  Helen is a great motivator and I will definitely be back for more in 2017."

​​Testimonial:  "Thank you Helen for making my sessions with you motivating and energizing. I'm achieving more than I thought possible, correcting bad habits and feeling my body change in the best way!  L,  Katoomba 2017​​
​​Testimonial:  "I have just completed a course of 10x 1 hour stretch sessions with Helen. I was motivated to take her classes as I had a sore hip which no amount of massage was helping. After completing the 10 sessions my hip pain has diminished by about 90% and, thanks to Helen's guidance and advice, I feel much more aware of my body. Hopefully this will mean I can avoid this problem developing in the future. Helen also referred me to a very skilled local physiotherapist who I have consulted with regarding my condition. I believe Helen's knowledge and professionalism, and her conscientious approach to her training has made a real difference to my life"  Gill,  Wentworth Falls 2016​​

Testimonial:  "Helen from Flexagility is the most professional personal trainer I have worked with.

A kind, funny and intelligent person - Helen makes it a joy to work out."  Judith,  Katoomba 2016​​

Testimonial:  "We needed to increase our fitness, in order to do an independent, multi-day bushwalk.  Although we've been Anytime Fitness members for some time, doing our own thing, we decided to give personal training a try. The results exceeded our expectations. We chose Helen's 'cardio + core' program. with 10  half-hour sessions. Helen emailed us a copy of  the exercises from each session, so we could repeat these on our own at the gym. The program was physically challenging, enjoyable, and motivating. We liked the variety, with new exercises added to each session, while also building on previous exercises. We were never bored! Helen encouraged us to focus on technique, which helped develop our confidence and knowledge.  We notice a definite improvement in our fitness, and as a  beneficial side effect, we've been concentrating more on health . We've booked another 10-session set, confident that with Helen, it will bewell planned, suited to our needs, and provide variety and challenge. Helen's Flexagility program is fun, supportive, and it works!"  ​​

Testimonial:  "I have been working with Helen for about 9 weeks now. When I first started I was extremely nervous. Being on the larger end of the scale I feared I wouldn't be able to complete the tasks before me. Not only did Helen assure me that it would be ok but the scales, measurements and my all round energy has provided the proof. Helen is a fantastic support person when needed and 100% pushes you to do the best and bring the best you can to each training session. I also attend Helen's group stretch classes. These are fantastic, especially after you have completed at PT session as it helps you stretch out. In short, 9 weeks ago I made the fantastic decision to work with Helen and in those few weeks I have moved mountains. I couldn't be happier with myself or my trainer. If you are thinking about doing it, stop thinking about it and do it. You won't be disappointed!!" ​​

Testimonial: "I was seeing a physio for back pain that was at times very debilitating. When my pain was at its worse I couldn't even walk on the treadmill let alone run. I started attending Helens Stretch Therapy classes & noticed improvements in my body. I have stopped seeing the physio now as I believe the stretching I have been doing in Helen's classes have been very beneficial for my back especially the hip & hamstring stretches and I havent had an episode where I couldn't move since attending these classes. Helen is warm & friendly & is very suited to teaching. I thought this from the very first meeting. The advice & tips I have received from Helen have been valuable & I have been able to put them in practice in everyday life.

Testimonial: "I started taking Helen's stretch classes about 10 weeks ago, with my husband. As an active person who is over 50 years old and with old recurrent injuries, these classes have been incredible. Not only have I re-learned how to use my body whilst working with my long-term injuries, I have improved flexibility, strength and body awareness, and my body shape has actually changed. The imbalances from one side of my body to the other are gradually coming into balance! Both my massage therapist and Physio are astounded at the positive changes I have made. This is now a lifestyle for me.  Thanks Helen!"  Amanda, Katoomba 2016​​

Testimonial: "Helen - I can't thank you enough for the commitment , dedication and inspiration you brought to my training.  I am 67 and have played sport and trained hard all my life and have always thought that I had a handle òn fitness and pretty much knew it all. You  totally  turned that theory on its head. Your program of functional movement using my own body weight and strategic exercises has been a revelation. I have been getting treatment for rotator cuff pain on and off for 20 years. In a few short weeks my shoulder pain and discomfort has markedly decreased and there has been a significant increase in mobility and strength. In the five weeks we have been working together  I have lost five kilos and am leaner, stronger and more energized than I have been in 20 years. Your program is now a way of life for me, I look forward to every session.  Thanks again." Ross,  Katoomba 2016​​
