Educogym has recently reopened in Naas, and next Friday January 19 they will be hosting a massive launch event as the renowned gym chain returns to the town centre.
Shaking off the extra pounds from Christmas is still at the forefront of many people's minds in January, and the staff at Educogym believe they can provide a perfect training routine that will accomplish just that.
Fitness trainer to the stars, Jamie Myerscough, CEO of Educogym firmly believes that just 20 minutes of resistance training, three times a week helps people not just to trim up but makes our minds sharper too.
“Our workouts are just 20 minutes long, so they don’t take up too much time, they are intensive but incredibly effective. People waste their efforts with endless running on treadmills or spinning bikes and get little or no results. Our training sessions incorporate resistance weight training and focus on specific areas of the body for just one session, such as legs, arms or the back and so on... We encourage our clients to create a mental blueprint of where they want to be at the end of their training sessions. They imagine themselves as slimmer, trimmer, and stronger. This encourages them to be more focused not just in the gym but through all aspects of their life.”
Now Jamie Myerscough has relaunched Educogym, Naas where he is encouraging local residents to unleash their own super power this January with the help of his team and the Educogym training regimes.
The grandson of legendary horse trainer Vincent O’Brien, Jamie has inherited those same gifts of mentoring, training and focus and applied them to people who are looking to build towards being the best they can be. Jamie’s clients have included some well- known entertainment and sports personalities, most notably Major-winning golfer, Darren Clarke who he helped shed an amazing 4.5 stone and pop star, Robbie Williams.
The Educogym method takes a holistic approach to health and fitness and focuses on regular exercise combined with nutrition. The system teaches people how to focus, train and nourish their bodies through one training programme. Combined, these tools create a synergistic force to empower, strengthen and rejuvenate the mind and body.
“The old school of thought is that the only reason you exercise is to burn calories. As a result every gym in the country has a myriad of aerobic and cardio equipment. Of course this will allow you to burn calories but, according to research, will also result in loss of muscle”, said Jamie. “Educogym uses its own ‘Time Machine’, a system which sees the client doing an intense workout under the careful supervision of an expert fitness consultant. A maximum of 6 people can use The Time Machine at any one time which means that there is a much more personal approach to our training; clients are motivated, encouraged and most importantly supervised on a scientifically proven programme that suits their own individual needs”.
‘The Time Machine’ has been aptly named as it takes only 20 minutes to complete and ultimately takes years off your life. When it comes to exercise for older people, research has proven that seniors who participated in weight training not only improved muscle strength and endurance but actually slowed, and in some cases, reversed some of the effects of ageing.
“We actually lose an average of ½ lb of muscle each year once we reach the age of 30, so it is important to maintain strength and muscle tone for overall health” said Jamie. “Certainly, there is no magic wand to stop the effects of ageing but with our help, and with this programme people can see results very quickly. The University study on which our concept is based showed average results of 7.5lbs of fat loss and 3 lbs of muscle gain which equates to approximately 2 inches off the waist and 6 years back on your ageing clock”. Nutrition too is an essential part of the Educogym programme and clients are also given a bespoke nutritional plan to suit their body and their lifestyle. Each client undergoes a comprehensive consultation before they commence the Educogym programme to measure their overall health and wellbeing. Their goals and objectives are also clearly outlined from the onset with a commitment from both trainer and client to achieve the goals together.
“I’m delighted to be bringing Educogym back to Naas and I’m sure there will be plenty of interest in our training programmes,” said Jamie Myerscough, CEO of Educogym. “We have had great success at our various gyms throughout Ireland, and now we are looking to helping local residents discover their ‘super you’ 2018!”
