My Kieser Story: Training for a Life Changing Trip

Client Name: MaryAnne Hickmott
Centre: Camberwell/ Sandringham
Primary Instructors: Rachel Pezzano/ Deb Lawrence

MaryAnne has been a member of Kieser for over two years. As her strength has increased, she has continued to set new fitness goals throughout her Kieser journey. Here is her story: 

“In August 2015 I had reached a point where I was struggling to get out of bed in the morning. Back and hip soreness prevented me from enjoying the things I loved – walking, playing with my grandchildren and golf. I was taking anti-inflammatories on a daily basis and I was concerned about the effects these had on my body.

My husband had been referred to Kieser in Camberwell and he suggested I give them a try. I started my strength & conditioning at Kieser and the next six months were spent reactivating my core, glutes and other muscles that had forgotten how to do their job. After regaining much of my lost mobility, I was able to set some new fitness goals.

My first fitness goal was built around a program to help me improve my golf. It was so good to have the confidence to play without worrying that I wouldn’t be able to move the following day. My handicap hasn’t improved a lot but the machines can’t do everything!! 

As my strength increased I dared to believe that I could now tick a big one on my bucket list. Together with my Kieser Exercise Scientists, I worked for a year to get track fit and pack ready, and in September I set out from St Jean Pied de Port in France to walk the 800 km Camino de Santiago, finishing 36 days later in Santiago de Compostella in Spain. 

As soon as I returned, I was straight back into training as I know how important Kieser is in my life. 

I’m not sure what my next challenge will be, but I’ll be ready when it comes.”
