NOT YOUR AVERAGE GYM! It is my absolute pleasure once again to be reporting on Livit Health Club in Everton Park. After receiving such great feedback we have decided to write a follow up to what I hope to be a running story on the club. Primarily we’ll be focusing on what Gym’s should be offering members and on a more positive note, we’ll talk about a gym, which is living up to their promises and delivering above and beyond for its members. In a hope that other gyms catch on and deliver similar results. What comes to mind when you think Health and fitness in today’s day and age? • • •

The Biggest Loser! Fad Dieting! Ouch!!! No Thanks

Well I am here to tell you that you don’t have to be tortured on a TV show to get the results you want! Nor get on to every fad diet that hits the market, whereby paid celebrities lie about how it worked for them. Put simply by Livit’s club manager Turgut, “Healthy living and all its benefits comes through Balance; good food, active lifestyle and good times”. Talking further with Turgut I was quite shocked to realize just how much false advertising and deception was really out there. So what then is good for you? What foods and at what times? What exercise is going to help me burn fat 24 hrs a day by increasing my metabolism? Why is it so hard to stay motivated coming to the gym? These are just some of the questions Livit Health Clubs have answered and overcome for its members. Proving to the general public you don’t have to be on TV to get outstanding results. Take Andrew Myers for example; in just 4 months he has not just lost a whopping 17kg, but has lost 16cm on his waist, 15 cm on his hips and lost 5% of his total body fat. So you would think Livit would have been satisfied. Well NO! Recently Livit increased its classes and incorporated the latest in Class Structures since Les Mills, “Radical Fitness Classes”. No wonder Livit continues to bring great results to its members, doubling attendance records, with members losing well over 100kg this year already. Don’t take my word for it though! Get down to Level 1/471 South Pine Road, Everton Park on the 18th of April for its Open Day and enjoy a free massage, free fitness consultations and much more.


In addition to aerobic exercise you should include some weight training which will help balance out your fitness routine and maximise your results. Its not just for bodybuilders, weight training is essential for strenthening muscles and bones and will balance out your physique. If you arent sure were to start one of our professional trainers can get you started on a healthy program that will suit your requirments. Call to organise 3 personal training sessions for just $49 per session. 3855 9885

I first joined Livit Health Clubs in February 2008. At the time of my joining I had only recently recovered from a serious illness that had lasted for over 16 months and in this time I had gained considerable weight and become very unfit. Ben and the healthy staff at Livit were helpful, knowledgable and extremely pleasent and they made the previously intimidating task of returning to the gym painless and comfortable even considering how self-conscious i was. With the aid of a dietician at Livit I have managed to lose of 40 kilos in 5 months and while I have been extremely motivated and following a strict diet. I can safely say that this would not have been possible without my membership at Livit. Considering the huge range of equiptment, the quality fo staff and the highly competitive pricing I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommedning Livit Health Clubs to firend and family alike. - David J Romeo, Gaythorne QLD

(Nancy Gulick) I felt fatigued before jumping on the Migun massage bed. The bed gave me a spurt of energy that i havent felt in a long time........ I had a pain in my right shoulder which travelled down my right side down to my buttocks/tailbone before I started on the bed, now I dont have it anymore, after only 1 month on the bed, I have been carrying that pain around for nearly 4 years. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m even sleeping better, i have a pool at home but didnt get into it for about a year, a lot of my muscles had gone dorment, the bed have stimulated those muscles. I love the Bed!

When I began using the Migun bed last September my blood sugar level was 160 and today it is 90, welcome change for someone with diabetes, but not only that i have lost 20 pounds. Thankyou very much for this health boost. It Works for me (Pat Malone) I started using Migun purely for relaxation which was enough to encourage me to purchase multiple 10 session passes. I then found however that my chronically sore back which incapacitated me 3-4 times a year, no longer did so. Whether it is the relaxation process or the manipulation of the muscles and spine that gives relief is unknown, but it works for me

SWEARING, MAY MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER, LESSEN PAIN LONDON (Reuters) - Cut your finger? Hurt your leg? Start swearing. It might lessen the pain.

Researchers from the school of psychology at Britain's Keele University have found swearing can make you feel better as it can have a "pain-lessening effect," according to a study published in the journal NeuroReport.

Colleagues Richard Stephens, John Atkins and Andrew Kingston, set out to establish if there was any link between swearing and physical pain. "Swearing has been around for centuries and is an almost universal human linguistic phenomenon," says Stephens.

"It taps into emotional brain centers and appears to arise in the right brain, whereas most language production occurs in the left cerebral hemisphere of the brain. Our research shows one potential reason why swearing developed and why it persists."

Their study involved 64 volunteers who were each asked to put their hand in a tub of ice water for as long as possible while repeating a swear word of their choice.

They then repeated the experiment using a more commonplace word that they would use to describe a table. The researchers found the volunteers were able to keep their hands in the ice water for a longer when swearing, establishing a link between swearing and an increase in pain tolerance.

Stephens said it was not clear how or why this link existed but it could be because swearing may increase aggression. "What is clear is that swearing triggers not only an emotional response, but a physical one too, which may explain why the centuries-old practice of cursing developed and still persists today," he said.
