Over the next few weeks we will be introducing you to our Personal Trainers at Bodyline Fitness Ealing, in the form of a short Blog on each of them. First up is one of our newest recruits, Dina Slavensky……….
Dina is a Level 3 Advanced Personal Trainer and originally certified in 2005 as a Fitness Instructor through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America. She enjoys working with those new to, or returning to exercise after long periods of inactivity, but also loves to find fun ways to challenge people wanting to take their fitness to the next level. She specialises in fat reduction and strengthening.
Recently Dina has had particular success with one client, Jo, and this is what Jo has to say about Dina:
“At the first consultation, Dina and I discussed my exercise history and established my goals during our time together. She also asked me to keep a food diary for a few days and gave me insightful feedback on it. Coming to Dina with a weak knee (torn meniscus) and dodgy shoulder (after-effects of frozen shoulder) I was hesitant as to how far we would be able to progress – how wrong I was!
Dina designed a programme of exercises specific to my needs and at each session she put me through my paces, increasing the intensity and number of repetitions. With her encouragement and motivation I kept surprising myself how much I could achieve! Thanks to Dina I discovered a love of the rower, which I had always avoided up till then. The sessions at Bodyline were fun and enjoyable and time just flew by. With each session I could see the progress I was making.
Dina also gave me regular advice on nutrition and my diet and spent time in my kitchen explaining the nutritional content of food stuffs and how to eat more healthily – what an eye opener! She also went the extra mile by keeping in touch with me in between our sessions with added suggestions for recipes and nutrition website addresses. She introduced me to the benefits of using the foam roller for stretching exercises, “my best friend”, as she called it and I’m getting used to it now!
I have benefited in many different ways from our sessions – my strength has improved all round, but especially in my knee and shoulder. My general fitness is better thanks to the cardio workouts and my weight has gone down due to my improved awareness of my nutrition. I appreciate and value her advice and support and warmly recommend her as personal trainer.”
