Why do I need an exercise technique session?
Circle8 Massage is privileged to have the services of a highly qualified sports and injury therapist of 8 years who also happens to have a decade-long career in personal training. This combination allows us to offer a fuller range of practical advice.
If you have a new technique you would like to learn, a new piece of gym equipment or an injury you would like to accommodate, we can advise on the best way to carry out your exercises to meet your goals faster and in a safe way.
Often the way you are performing an exercise may be causing you issues and this is also something we can address.
What happens in an exercise technique session?
Each one-to-one session is set up to meet your needs. We will:
- Talk through your exercise routines, time scales and desired outcomes.
- Discuss any limitations you may have including injuries, strength levels or exercise preferences.
- Practise the exact technique needed for your routine and to ensure you are making the most of your precious gym time and avoiding any risk of injury.
- Teach the best practise for any new equipment, lifting techniques or exercise classes that you are unsure of.
- Set up a program of corrective and postural exercises that we can monitor to ensure they are meeting your needs and increasing in intensity as required.
- Program the new exercise in to your current training routine and add in any assistance exercises that would benefit the movement you are trying to learn.
But I know what I am doing…
No matter how long you’ve been working out in the gym or working towards your fitness goals, there’s always room to learn better techniques and improved form. Over time, many of us start to lose the form that we practised so carefully at the start. Having a second pair of eyes on your technique can act as a backup to achieving the best possible results and preventing injury.
Ant was welcoming, took my pain history and talked me through what he was manipulating. Been having a lot of trouble with my left hip, went for a walk today and no hint of old pain. He sent me exercises to do after my appointment to continue to strengthen my problem areas. Will be booking again soon.
Ant is brilliant – he really knows anatomy and massage, and will not only fix you with his hands, but also send you exercises to help prevent issues reoccurring. In addition, you'll have a good chat, get film recommendations, and all with alt rock background music – far better than the usual ambient pan pipe nonsense. Highly recommended!
Ant is brilliant ! He has the knowledge of a great physio combined with strong and targeted massage technique that just works and gets me moving again ! Turned up with a sore kneee that wouldnt bend left completely fine and fixed plus a clear understanding of what had caused the problem. He even emailed me exercises later that day to help avoid future problems. Cannot recommend enough !! Thanks Ant !
Really good massage. I've been used to massage therapists just going in with their hands and not asking questions, but Jessika talked to me about my motivations for booking and then worked on the specific areas that needed it. I came out feeling like I had clouds for muscles, and my posture is already better. Amazing!
I’ve had chronic issues with my neck and back and I always leave Circle 8 feeling miles better. Ant is very knowledgeable and always makes sure to explain what may be causing the pain and discomfort. He is brilliant at what he does and is also really friendly. Definitely would recommend!
Circle8 is top notch for any niggles you might have, however big or small. Ant and the team are mega knowledgeable, they can feel exactly where you pain might be coming from, release your tension professionally, and even offer follow up exercises and mobility work to treat and prevent further issues. I’d highly recommend them to anyone looking for sports massage in Leeds city centre.
Best massage ive ever had. Ant is really friendly, great to chat to on the more painful areas of the massage and excellent aftercare advice. Wish I'd have found this place sooner! Cannot recommend enough, will definitely be back!
