Here at self we feel that it is important to share with you the challenges our clients have overcome, and the success stories they have achieved. We all go through these challenges on a daily basis no matter what level of health and fitness you have and we all make choices.

"Where we find ourselves today is a consequence of yesterday's choices"

There are no quick fixes, miracle potions or short cuts to achieving true Health and Fitness, many have tried and as a nation we are showing the effects of these designer quick fixes - We as a nation are becoming fatter and sicker more stressed and depressed ! this is a fact...

The testimonials below represent the benefits of the holistic approach that we offer:


 

My Triathlon placement overall was 205th out of 2,138. Top 9%. Not bad for a 39 year old dad training on his own! And after a 4 year break from the sport. Very pleased.** Results may vary from person to person

A year ago, I had legs covered in spots and sores, had to wear a nose thing at night to open my breathing cos I snored like a rhino, I had a mouth guard cos I was grinding my teeth at night, I couldn't run 100m cos of my fucked knee, I was 96 kilos, I was riddled with fungus and the attendant nastiness like athletes foot, bad breath, itchy bum etc, I felt stiff and sore all the time, I was drinking loads and doing drugs, getting to bed late, getting up late, travelling all round the world every month, couldn't recover from exercise, had low self esteem, felt grumpy and highly stressed, felt very isolated, couldn't get relationships working and suffered from a constant background (or more often foreground!) feeling of anxiety. 

Most of my best efforts to sort myself out failed, including being on the wagon for good stretches, Insanity workouts, anti-biotics, Chinese medicine, physio, more physio, blah blah blah. 

 I now look back at all that and realise how far I've come. I feel great now!!! Between Personal Training with Christian at self holistic health gym in chelmsford and my nutritionist I've transformed my life. I feel fit, strong, calm and healthy, and I'm injury free and virtually symptom free of all the stuff I mentioned before. I'm managing relationships much better and enjoying life by getting to bed when I can and getting up to see the kids most mornings. I've put in a hell of a lot of work and it has not been plain sailing, but the results are amazing when taken as a cohesive whole. 

 

I thank you Christian from the bottom of my heart for your role in all this. I really thought I'd never run again. The best thing I ever did was walk through the doors of  "self holistic health gym". Thankyou. Jx


I took part in a lot of sport in my youth, but after leaving school life turned into mostly sitting at a desk in front of a computer. After several years of this I felt like I was physically wasting away and when it came time to do something about it I wasn't really sure where to start. Normal gyms seemed intimidating to me - not knowing what I was doing and healthy eating seemed such an abstract thing that I had no idea where to start, where I was going wrong or even what the benefits of eating healthily would be.

For me, being completely new to the world of gyms and health and fitness, it seemed intimidating. Christian and Self Holistic Health have been the perfect resource to help me rekindle my enjoyment of physical activity. With the support of personalised exercise programmes and an easy to follow nutrition plan (which is more like an education than a diet).

I have been able to feel like a strong and functional human being again. My posture is improved, I've lost fat and gained muscle and I have more energy than ever. What's more, the entire process has been incredibly fun - doing challenging exercises that I have enjoyed and eating from the personalized food list from the diet nutrition and lifestyle plan is not restrictive at all, i have found that there are always healthier options for sweet treats!

What makes Self Holistic Health exceptional is that all you have to do is turn up and do your thing, safe in the knowledge that you have an expert personalised plan to achieve whatever results you are after without all the research, trial and error and potential injury you would otherwise have to go through. What more could you want in a gym?

Normal gyms seemed intimidating to me as it seemed likely I would hurt myself (not knowing what I was doing) and healthy eating seemed such an abstract thing that I had no idea where to start, where I was currently going wrong or even what the benefits of eating healthily would be.For me, being almost completely new to the world of gym style health and fitness, Christian and Self Holistic Health have been the perfect resource to help me rekindle my enjoyment of physical activity.
