What our Happy Customers are Saying

I have been training with Emmanuel over the past 9 months and I have experienced great results. When I first met Emmanuel my body was in a very bad way. It was out of balance from years of physical work as a carpenter, and lifting incorrectly has caused chronic lower back pain that kept me out of the surf for the last 18 months.

I train with Emmanuel weekly in the gym and his knowledge of rehab strength training is outstanding. Nine months on, my body continues to improve. Now I’m back in the surf, and noticing a much different feel back on a surfboard, with more power and stability.

Before, I didn’t know where to turn for help but meeting Emmanuel has been a true blessing. I have no hesitation recommending Emmanuel for personal training.

Where does one start with Emmanuel as a personal trainer? Well at the beginning – I am now 55 years old. I came to Emmanuel after 30 years or so of consistent attempts at gym training. But it was the same story every time. In almost every case I would get into the training and do well for 5-6 weeks, and then I would strain something, pull a muscle etc, and then end up spending 2-3 weeks getting over it. Momentum lost. Start again.

I have been with Emmanuel now for two and a half years and he has revolutionized my training. In the time that I trained with him I have NOT injured myself as I used to. In fact the lower left back, right shoulder, and knee problems I have been nursing over all those years have gone! I now have the strongest core muscles I have ever had.

Central in the training is Emmanuel’s style. He is supportive but firm. If you lag in attitude he is not afraid to forcefully encourage you to work harder. Coupled with his honesty, integrity, excellent sense of humor, and strong personal core values, Emmanuel is the best.

I have been training with Emmanuel for 4 years. When I started with Emmanuel I had chronic pain in my left hip and knee. One of my goals was to lose some weight. After working with Emmanuel I am now pain free and have lost the weight.

The sessions with Emmanuel are varied, we hardly ever do the same set of exercises two sessions in a row. He monitors my levels and always provides appropriate, challenging exercises. My latest blood test shows my cholesterol at its lowest level in 5 years and my PSA levels as negligible.

I enjoy training with Emmanuel and consider the fees as health insurance well spent

I experienced significant pain and restricted movement in both shoulders, starting from two years ago. I was advised that my left shoulder was a “frozen shoulder.” My right shoulder was diagnosed as “Bursitis”.

There was no treatment for the left side, but I received various treatments for the right shoulder, including cortisone injections, followed by Bursitis patches to draw the fluid, Osteopathic treatment. None of these gave more than small relief.

Since then, I have received 8 sessions with Emmanuel Elturk and the relief has been better. I am able to sleep sounder without aching, I am able to raise both arms well above my head, and easily swing my arms easily to both right and left side!

I was seeing a chiropractor twice a week, and when I wanted to work hard, I could not do too much without getting tired and sore.

It was then that I came across Dynamic Lifestyle whom I went to see for some massage treatments.

5 weeks later, my back was completely balanced and at ease with significantly fewer niggles. I was then able to commence a training program with Emmanuel to regain strength and continue to work hard and feel better every day.
