How TruBe’s Workouts Help Prevent Injury and Disease

We thought we’d take a moment to delve further into our training philosophy, looking at how our workouts have been designed.  Of course they are designed to keep you looking and feeling great but they also work in harmony with the body and to reduce the risk of injury.

Regular TruBe workouts and a well rounded approach to exercise and nutrition will help you to combat the signs of old age. Let’s take a look at the key factors of preventing injury and disease:

Improving Movement
All of TruBe’s workouts incorporate the latest functional research to condition your body in a range of movements. It is vitally important to train all 3 planes of movement in a very gradual progression, using body weight and resistant equipment. This resistant type of exercise will help maintain muscle strength and flexibility so that you don’t become injured during everyday activities. Being strong through all movements will also reduce the risk of a fall, which may result in bone fractures, muscle, tendon and ligament strains.

Burning fat to Protect Vital Organs
The exercises performed in our TruBe workouts will help to burn body fat. The more muscle you activate the more fat you burn. As we age the chances of cardiac disease, cancer and diabetes increases. If we have excessive body fat around our vital organs (viscous fat) then this increases the chances of getting these diseases.

Reducing Stress
All our our TruBe personal training sessions finish with a dynamic cool down and breathing exercise. Your TruBe trainer will guide you through a simple pranyama breathing sequence which helps to bring the you back into balance and calm the mind. This aids in preparing yourself for the rest of the challenges of the day.

Fighting the Symptoms of Ageing
“Osteoporosis occurs when the struts which make up the mesh-like structure within bones become thin, causing bones to become fragile and break easily, often following a minor bump or fall.” – National Osteoporosis Society

Resistance exercise will increase bone density and help maintain muscle strength. With the integration of multi-plane movements, you will reduce the risk of falling which may lead to injury. The exercise prescribed during a TruBe personal training session will condition your movements and range of movement specific to your daily needs.

Varicose Veins
“Weakness of the vein wall allows valves to stretch so that they do not close properly. Blood then flows back into the leg along these veins. The veins and their tributaries enlarge and can be seen on the surface as varicose veins.” – The British Varicose Veins Centre

Increasing blood circulation and reducing blood pressure will greatly decrease your chances of forming varicose veins. Any exercises involving the legs and more specifically the calves will pump blood back to the heart quicker not allowing blood pooling to occur.

“Viscous Fat that engulfs major organs increases the risk of all major Cardiovascular Diseases.” – NHS

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a general term that describes a disease of the heart or blood vessels.There are four main types of CVD.  They are: coronary heart disease, stroke, peripheral arterial disease and aortic disease. Increasing your cardiovascular strength and reducing fat stores will greatly reduce the risk of CVD.

Behind The Scenes at TruBe’s Fitness Photoshoot

At the end of April, our team spent the weekend in East London for a photoshoot, looking to capture our TruBe brand and philosophy in both photo and video form.

At a beautifully designed house, we had two days to capture what we needed from our personal trainers and models.

Our Head of Marketing & PR, Phoebe, wore multiple hats as the director, organiser, personal stylist and chief cheerleader throughout the weekend.

Gabby, Portia, Sig, Steffy and Jade were our superstar models, and even when the cameras weren’t on them they were happy and smiling!

A big shout out to the guys behind the camera which were Andrew James photography and his crew who did an amazing job! We also had Robyn work her magic with hair & makeup for our models.

TruBe’s founder Daria directed the weekend, and wanted to share these behind the scenes photos to showcase the vision.
