Personal Training Client: Joanne Pizel
Occupation: Marketing VP
Personal Trainer: Nelson Chong
After a horrendous 2nd pregnancy where I was debilitated with Pubic Symphysis and a misaligned pelvis I felt I had received an insight into what it is like to live with chronic pain and I did not want to face that in old age. The pain did not go away after delivering and following a series of tests I found I had degenerated spinal discs, and overall terrible alignment caused by weak back muscles and core.
I was determined to do what I could to get my body back to functioning as it should. I joined the gym and was recommended Nelson as a trainer due to his history of success with 'problem' clients.
Within a short few short weeks I could already notice a significant improvement in my condition and within a few months I was pain free. I continued with the training and when I fell pregnant 2 years later I kept it up. I could not believe how different my 3rd pregnancy was versus the 2nd one (and even versus the 1st). I had no pain whatsoever. I was still doing trips to the zoo and running after my 2 active boys just days before I delivered. A nice benefit after the birth was that my body bounced back remarkably quickly. I was back in my regular jeans 10 days later and back at the gym and exercising 3 weeks post delivery. I even managed to complete a triathlon in Bintan when my son was just 3 months old.
Nelson honestly has changed my life for the better. I am stronger and fitter than I have ever been. I get so much enjoyment out of life with a functioning body and I never take that for granted. I would recommend Nelson to anyone who wants their body to truly work like it is supposed to.
