MEET TANYA. SHE IS NOW PAIN-FREE.
Chronic pain (also known as persistent pain) is pain that persists beyond the expected healing time of an injury. Unlike acute pain which is caused by tissue damage, chronic pain or persistent pain is less about the structural or tissue damage and more about the sensitivity of the nervous system and ‘non tissue related factors’. Significant research has shown that exercise is an essential aspect in the treatment of chronic pain.
Often when we experience chronic pain we avoid activity in an attempt to not cause pain flare ups. However we know that gradually over time people experiencing chronic pain become less able to complete activities which were previously enjoyed, for example walking, and commonly also have difficulties in completing activities of daily living such as housework.
In Tanya's case, she had sourced and tried multiple solutions to be more mobile after an accident many years ago that caused her relentless pain in the neck. This pain persisted for close to years. Despite having seen chiropractors and physiotherapists, along with training at other gyms, Tanya's pain was persistent. "I saw pain as a normal part of daily life. E's FITNESS transformed this completely."
After training with Head Expert Elinn on the 3-Stage Program starting with Stage 1, Train To Eliminate Pain, Tanya saw significant improvement and moved on to Stage 2 with targeted exercises for her mobility and agility. In Stage 3, within just a few months, Tanya swears by E's methods of eliminating pain.
Today, she is a satisfied client of E's who recommends personal training to eliminate joint pain. In her own words, "With Elinn's perceptivity and experience, I have zero pain in my neck, pain which persisted for years, really"
“Elinn has helped me eliminate pain in my neck that was caused by a road accident, years ago”

MEET LANA. SHE BELIEVES IN PERSONAL TRAINING.
According to client Lana Pujara, personal training is highly essential. A professional trainer teaches the proper way to perform each exercise movement in your routine. She demonstrates the movement, coaches you through it, and corrects any issues with your posture or technique. Learning how to perform exercises properly reduces your risk of injury and increases the movement's efficacy. When you can perform a move the right way, it increases the likelihood that you'll do it on your own at home or at the gym after your training sessions.
Lana explains that she prefers personal training as compared to working out in a commercial gym. It is also a fact that If one lacks commitment, self-motivation, or just the ability to kick his own self in the pants, a personal trainer could be key to getting a new fitness routine off the ground. When you exercise on your own, it is easier to skip a session here and there or fall off the wagon completely since there's no one to hold you to your actions. When you work with a trainer, whether you don't want to lose the money or don't want to let them down, you're far more likely to show up and do the work.
MEET SHARON. SHE CAN NOW DO 10 PULL-UPS AT 60.
Though it’s difficult to imagine ourselves in old age, the attention we devote to building and maintaining crucial muscle areas today will make a significant difference 20, 30 or 40 years down the road when it comes to carrying out even basic actions such as walking and bending.
In fact, our skeletal muscles, the fibres anchored to our bones and tendons that enable both motion and force, are integral to how we function. If we don’t take care of these muscles, which start to deteriorate as young as age 25, we’re at risk of injury, as well as a range of problems from incontinence to weak bones to increased risk for falls, which often reduces lifespan in those over age 65.
Women are at several disadvantages when it comes to optimal muscle health. With age, our muscles deteriorate at a faster rate than men’s, explains Michael Bemben, an exercise physiologist and professor in the department of health and exercise science at the University of Oklahoma. The neurons that control muscles in both genders are programmed to die off with age.“Men typically have more muscle to begin with so they can afford to lose some, whereas women can’t,” he adds.
Older women saw only a 10 percent increase in muscle power versus a 50 percent rise for younger women doing comparable exercises, according to a recent study in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise. Power is more closely related to the ability to perform daily activities and reduce the risk of falls than muscle strength alone, states Dain LaRoche, the study’s co-author and assistant professor of exercise science in the department of kinesiology at the University of New Hampshire.
The good news? With exercise, older women can build up muscle strength. But to achieve “net muscle gain,” we need to work on improving our muscle health now, says Jennifer Jakobi, an assistant professor in the school of human kinetics at the University of British Columbia. ‘It’s like retirement savings: The more you invest in your muscles, the larger the base you have to function longer.
Take a look at Sharon Yeoh, Director, Head of Corporate Secretarial at TMF Singapore. As one of E's satisfied clients who attained her goals of feeling younger and stronger, she can now do 10 pull-ups at her age. In contrary, she was struggling with muscle loss and lack of agility - given her hectic work schedule as a director who works 9 to 5 and beyond.

MEET MOON. WITH EXERCISE, SHE STOPPED GETTING SICK FREQUENTLY.
Client Moon Kua attests to experiencing less fevers and eliminating the common cold with exercise. She is E's FITNESS' model example of a study in the United States. A study of 1,000 people found that staying active nearly halved the odds of catching cold viruses and, failing that, made the infection less severe. Experts said that this could be because exercise helps bolster the immune system to fight off bugs. US researchers asked the healthy volunteers to keep a record of any coughs and sniffles they experienced over a three-month period during the autumn and winter. The volunteers were also asked to say how frequently in any given week they would do exercise lasting at least 20 minutes and intensive enough to break a sweat.
And they were questioned about lifestyle, diet and recent stressful events, as these can all affect a person's immune system. Being older, male and married seemed to reduce the frequency of colds, as did eating plenty of fruit. But the most significant factors that cut colds was how much exercise a person did and how fit they perceived themselves to be.
Feeling fit and being active cut the risk of having a cold by nearly 50%. People who were physically active on five or more days of the week were unwell with a cold for about five days of the three-month period, compared to nine days for those who did little or no exercise.
And even when they were ill, they suffered less with their symptoms.T he severity of symptoms fell by 41% among those who felt the fittest and by 31% among those who were the most active.
MEET JAMIE. SHE STOPPED QUICK WEIGHT-LOSS METHODS FOR REAL RESULTS.
Liposuction - doctors insert a sort of vacuum that literally sucks the fat from your body. Client Jamie has tried all kinds of weight-loss solutions to achieve her ideal weight. However, while it is still an option for those wishing to get rid of stubborn fat in target areas, it is not a solution for dramatic weight loss. The removal of fat cells does not equal weight loss; instead, such a quick weight-loss solution provides a pleasing aesthetic appearance. While the fat cells will not return where liposuction occurred, the procedure does not stop fat from reappearing elsewhere in the body. If weight loss is your ultimate goal, liposuction alone will not get you the results you want. Much like any other weight loss regimen, a proper diet and adequate amount of exercise is the best way to achieve long-lasting and healthy weight-loss results. As a result of personal training with E's FITNESS, Jamie now sees real results.
Furthermore, like any major surgery, liposuction comes with many risks of bleeding, infection, and an adverse reaction to anesthesia.
The risk of complications is usually associated with how large the procedure is, as well as the surgeon's skills and specific training.
The following risks, unpleasant side effects, or complications are possible:
- Severe bruising: This can last for several weeks.
- Inflammation: The swelling may take up to 6 months to settle, and fluid may continue to ooze from the incisions.
- Thrombophlebitis: A blood clot forms in a vein, causing inflammation and further complications.
- Contour irregularities: If there is poor skin elasticity, if the wound heals in an unusual way, or if fat removal has been uneven, the skin may appear withered, wavy, or bumpy.
- Numbness: The affected area may feel numb for a while, but this is usually temporary.
- Infections: Rarely, a skin infection may occur after liposuction surgery. Sometimes this needs to be treated surgically, with the risk of scarring.
- Internal organ punctures: This is very rare.
- Death: Anesthesia involves a small risk of death.
- Kidney or heart problems: As fluids are being injected and or suctioned, the change in the body's fluid levels may cause kidney or heart problems.
- Pulmonary embolism: Fat gets into the blood vessels and travels to the lungs, blocking the circulation in the lungs. This can be life-threatening.
- Pulmonary edema: Sometimes, when fluid is injected into the body, it accumulates in the lungs.
- Allergic reaction: The patient may be allergic to medications or materials used during surgery.
- Skin burns: The cannula movement may cause friction burns to the skin or nerves.
