Personal Training

Ask yourself this: why wouldn't the human body be capable of the incredible feats that you are demanding of it? For millions of years, people evolved to survive and thrive in the cruel, unforgiving natural world. When there is pressure on you to push yourself, you better believe that you will push yourself – and it is only then that you will uncover your true potential. Read up sometime on the superhuman accomplishments of soldiers in battle down through the ages. The 2,000 years or so that make up our modern era haven't quite degraded our bodies beyond the point of this superhuman potential. It's just a matter of making the most of what you have!

 

Think about your grip. It should be strong, one of the most impressive parts of your body, just like it is for a baby. Squatting (even over extended periods – think hours) should also be possible for you, because that is the way our ancestors ate their meals and chatted with each other.

 

Long-distance runs and long-distance walks are should also seem normal to us, and when we want to sprint, we should be able to – just our ancestors had to, covering miles upon miles daily in search of food and bursting away from lions and elephants at any hint of danger. Your movement fluidity will come with training, and I can help you to rediscover it if you feel like you have lost it (or if you feel like you could be doing even more than you are doing already!).

Every single day, we ought to be using our bodies, turning it this way and twisting it that way, leaning over and squatting down, keeping our muscles active so that they don't even come close to stiffening to the point of pain. Fall down? Stand back up! This is all part of the learning process, and the right pain can mean that you are on track to true growth and progress in your fitness journey.

Your body is a magical thing, an incredibly adaptive tool capable of feats the likes of which you may never have considered possible. It all starts with your hands and your feet: tight, overbearing shoes often lead to damage in your foot, including arch collapse, and misuse or under-use lead to weak grips and poor neuro-connections.

Remember this: there is nothing that you can't re-learn. Your brain has simpyl gotten into the habit of laziness, picking up on the lessons that it doesn't have to do anything with regards to your neural pathways, putting your but to sleep, damaging your lower back. Our modern lifestyles may have damaged us, but they haven't broken us.

 

Don't lose hope.

 

No matter how old you are and no matter how you feel about your health, you can still adapt to a healthy, active lifesyle.

 

It starts with a single movement. From there, keep it going. Amp it up. Walk this way. Crawl over there. Squat. Jump!

 

Before you know it, you will be deadlifting heavier weights – and with greater ease. You will be pushing and pulling with your upper body, and you will be rotating your torso quickly and smoothly. You are going to look and feel your best in no time at all, and I am going to show you the way. This isn't just personal training; it's personal rediscovery. 

Customer Feedback

Mesut was recommended to me by my neighbour about my sciatic symptoms
As a plumber I was struggling to drive, carrying tools, boilers, climbing ladders and walking. I had massive balance issues. He diagnosed me a piriformis syndrome and treated me with some acupuncture, stretching exercises. I Was
Back to work full time .
I started training with him in January 2018.
He focuses on posture and alignment to make me keep going with my plumbing work. Along with his resistance training, I feel fit and in a good a shape.
He also treats my mother-in-law Ivy, which is 80yrs. She lives in the US and she makes sure to book in with Mesut in her every visit and she is physically in a lot better shape and no longer using walking sticks.

Mesut Olcas was introduced to me in 2017 by my GP. I was handed a web page print-out and toldby my respected doctor “this is someone you need to go and see”.

At the time my health was good, but mobility could be better, and I had niggling pains, primarily from a total shoulder replacement many years earlier. I had been privately seeing a physiotherapist and told by them that there was nothing further that could be achieved.

I ignored the sage advice from my GP and discarded the page to a drawer at home.

Late September last year I was in agony with my shoulder. I had taken myself back to the gym and thought was doing well. No!
I immediately thought of my GP’s advice and called Mesut. After just one session of therapy 90% of the pain had gone and I could move my arm again.

For the past 6 months I have been seeing Mesut weekly; both for therapy, treatment including acupuncture, and in training at the gym.

In therapy he is a genius. He genuinely cares and achieves results. The aches are a fraction from before and my mobility is increasing all the time.
And in training at the gym; for me Mesut is the only trainer I would consider working with. He understands my goals and supports me in striving for these. But a big factor is safety, ensuring posture is correct and choosing the right apparatus and routines appropriate for me.

I have no hesitation in recommending Mesut to anyone. A huge thank you Mesut

I have been training with Mesut for a year. When we started I couldn’t go running, I had constant hip pain and a knee injury. Through diligent work and treatment from Mesut, I am now pain-free, have commenced running and no longer have any injuries. I feel fitter, stronger and healthier than I have done in years and this down to Mesut and the techniques, training programmes and treatment he applies to his clients.

I am a 40 year old man with an office job involving sitting down for much of the day. I try to keep fit and flexible and have been going to the gym for many years but I have been unlucky and had multiple injuries over the years as well as surgery to my elbow, knee and ankle. 

I’ve decided to train with Mesut given his expertise in remedial fitness and functional training. After approximately one year now i have seen a great improvement in my flexibility, strength as well as my weight lifting technique.

When I first started training I barely had any supporting core muscles or shoulder strength and flexibility. My squatting and deadlifting technique were fairly poor and I could barely deadlift 40 kg. I have recently achieved a new PB of 120 kg. 

I would highly recommend training with Mesut if you are like me and recovering from old injuries and niggles that have never quite gone away or if you spend your day hunched over a desk and have developed poor posture of weak core muscles. 

Mesut has given me the Lots of great advice and corrective improvements to my weight lifting technique which have helped improve my strength and flexibility. 

I feel that I am on a much more solid foundation than before and am looking forward to learning more from him.
