Pain Killers could raise heart attack risk.

Recent studies have shown that the use Non-Steroidal Anti-Infalmmatories (NSAIDS) can increase your risk of heart attack.

This includes but is not limited to Celecoxib (CELEBREX), Ibuprofen (NUROFEN, ADVIL), Diclofenac (VOLTAREN).

Any drug when used incorrectly can be dangerous and its always good to remind ourselves that just because a drug is available over the counter that it can not be dangerous.

The purpose of sharing this on our newsletter is not to provide advice, simply to recommend that you stay in close communication with your doctor if you use any medications either non-prescription or prescription.

Gym Hygiene and Etiquette 

Towels and Hygiene
Don’t throw in the towel! Use it to wipe your sweat, and keep going. Besides, cleaning up after yourself is a great way to burn calories!

Punctuality and courtesy in classes
Upon the commencement of the class spots will be opened to people that may be on the wait list. We kindly request that if on the special occasion you must leave before the class ends, please let the teacher know at the beginning of class and place yourself near the door so you can leave with minimal class disruption.

Mobile Phones
For those of us that require continued contact, flick your phone on silent and be mindful.

Be Kind
We are already (possibly) the friendliest health and fitness facility in the world. Thanks for being so friendly and smiley. It makes everyones life better.

Sandy Vieira

What inspired you to become a fitness professional?

It hasn’t always been about fitness for me. Fitness has only really been present in my life for the last 5 years. There was a lot of self growth I had to do before even considering this career path.
Growing up as the ‘fat kid’ I always struggled with body image. I hate to use this language now, however this was how my inner voice spoke to me. I hated exercising as it always brought on my Asthma and I was an emotional eater, and this was a recipe for disaster!
As fate would have it, a diagnosis of Celiac Disease in my mid 20’s set me on a journey of discovery and education on how to be a happier and healthier me.

My journey began with a Naturopath who firstly educated me on food and helped me detox my body of all the toxins I was feeding it. I also tapped into some spiritual healing to change the way this inner voice was speaking to me.
I didn’t stop there. 5 years ago, I was introduced to fitness through aPersonal Trainer and went through my own body transformation. I lost 30kgs from this journey and am proud to say that I don’t have Celiac Disease anymore.
It was this journey and all the inspirational people along the way that finally inspired me to quit my corporate job in Advertising and pursue this career. I was fortunate at this time to be a member of at Ruben’s and was grateful for the encouragement and support I received from Ruben and the Team.

What Inspires you?

What inspires me today is having this opportunity to help others on their journey in life.
To me, fitness is more than just body image or how much you can lift, sure these are fun bonuses, however I feel it’s about nourishing your soul first with good food and using exercise to increase your energy so you can feel good both mentally and physically.
Looking back on this part of my journey, I draw from all the people who have shaped me. I’m inspired by them and hope to also inspire others and help them along their path and journey.

Favourite Quote
“Fear isn’t your enemy, but a sign post” Jeff Foster

This hasn’t been an easy journey and there are a lot of moments of doubt and fear where the thought of failure or not being good enough is very real. One thing I’ve learnt is that we don’t grow if we don’t face these fears.
The moment I let go and took the plunge, amazing things started to happen and sign posts were literally everywhere.

Favourite Exercise
Push ups.
These have to be my favs because 5 years ago, I couldn’t even do 1 on my knees and I just feel so proud when I can power through them on my toes now.

Favourite Snack
Celery Sticks and Peanut Butter (the healthy kind of course) YUM!

Remedial Massage Marrickville

Sports Remedial Massage Sports Remedial Massage is well known for serving athletes and people with active repetitive jobs. However we don’t consider how repetitive and destructive sitting at a desk or behind a steering wheel can be. Extended periods of time (30 minutes or longer) are incredibly detrimental to hips and shoulders. This leads to back pain, neck tension and head aches amongst other injuries.

Remedial Sports Massage systematically treats your source of discomfort and addresses the original source of the pain. For peace of mind our Remedial Massage Therapists are recognised with major Health Insurance Providers for on the spot rebates.

Don’t take our word for it… Book your first 60 minute massage and receive $20 off**.

We hope you’re well. Here are the latest updates @Ruben’s. Its been a fantastically scorching summer. I hope you made the most of the beautiful weather.

Why Sports Remedial Massage…?

The importance of BALANCE is apparent through all aspects of life. Whether it be relationships, work, pleasure, nutrition and activity. Balancing out high energy activities with low intensity restorative activities is 100% necessary. Without balance is imbalance and sub optimal function. This includes movement disfunction, pain, injury and illness.

The problem is with so many of us (health professionals also…) is that we wait for the pain to become unbearable, we wait for an injury to occur or until we fall ill.

This is a reactive rather than pro-active. If you are receiving this email it means you are already taking pro-active steps to enhancing your health and well being. However
Sports Remedial Massage is one of the best ways to actively enhance recovery and relieve stress. Basically, if you listen to your body when it whispers, you won’t have to hear it when it screams.

Today stress is a real part of life… Tools for stress management are extremely valuable. 
Pippa and Josh are our in house Sports Remedial Massage Therapists.
