Martin J. (born 1978) – (began training July 13, 2007)

tl_files/hojda/DATA/jpg/MJ1.JPG  tl_files/hojda/DATA/jpg/MJ2.JPG

 

Fitness training goals:

  1. Strengthening the back muscles

  2. Improving posture and spinal curvature

  3. Getting rid of back pain

  4. Compensation for the "missing" muscle in the protruding shoulder blade area

 

Notes regarding the photos:

The first photo was taken on July 13, 2007, the second on September 10, 2007 (after two months of regular training in the gym and at home). Martin came to me with pain in the left shoulder, back and in the area of the left shoulder blade. Previously he went to a neurologist and an orthopedist, where he was diagnosed with a protruding shoulder blade. Due to an infection, the n. thoracius longus nerve was damaged. This nerve stimulates the m. serratus anterior muscle, whose function is to press the shoulder blade from the back toward the rib cage. Our training was focused on strengthening the m. rhomboideus muscles as well as the lower and middle part of m. trapezius muscle. These should replace the activity of above-mentioned dysfunctional muscle. We were able to work with the muscle again so that it was, to a degree, without problems or pain. The muscle activity improved, but fully repairing the nerve damage will take a long period of time.

 

Alena J. (born 1965) - (began training April 23, 2005; on a dietary plan from April 26, 2005; training three times a week at the fitness center plus spinning twice a week)

 

Fitness training goals:

  1. Fat/weight reduction

  2. Strengthening/toning

 

Note:

In January 2005, Alena weighed 126 kg, then she decided to do something about her weight. Ten years earlier she weighed 65 kg, after which came a period of high work demand involving sedentary work at a PC more than ten hours a day, irregular and improper diet and a lack of exercise, all of which led her weight to increase rapidly...

 

Alena‘s email:

Hello, I am interested in working with a personal trainer. I am 40 years old and haven’t exercised in 12 years (earlier I did aerobics twice a week). I am obese and have back and joint pain. I have a sedentary job (working at a PC). Because it’s very difficult for me to go to the gym due to my weight I would initially prefer to exercise at home and have you prepare a dietary plan for me. Based upon what I’ve described, I’m looking for a long-term training relationship (I need to lose 50-60 kg). Such a radical reduction in my weight is necessiated by my health problems. Would you be willing to consult with me? I can only come to Prague once a week. Alena J., Most“

Markéta N. (born 1972) – (began training May 9, 2003)

tl_files/hojda/DATA/jpg/MN.jpg

 

Fitness training goals:

  1. Correction of muscle imbalance in the back of the neck

  2. Loosen the right hip joint

 

Note regarding the photo:

Markéta sought me out based on the recommendation of her doctor, MUDr. Marie Mrvová, so we could continue with planned rehabilitation. The photo was taken on August 26, 2003, three months after regular training in the fitness centre (three times a week plus exercises at home for the neck and hips). During this time we were able to focus on toning Markéta ´s figure, which is very evident in the abdominal muscles (see photo).

Health problems:

Spinal scoliosis, kyphosis (also called roundback or Kelso´s hunchback) of the spine, Scheuermann´s disease.

Note regarding the photo:

The first photo was taken on December 17, 2003, the second on February 17, 2004. The primary goal of the training was to rectify problems in the pectoral region of the spine and related musculoskeletal asymmetry (sloping pelvis; one shoulder being higher than the other; both shoulders rotated forward; head tilted forward; distended and shortened right side of the torso; elevated C and LS Lordosis. The training program (2-3 times per week in the fitness center plus daily special exercises at home) was focused on strengthening the muscles around the spine, loosening and stretching the upper fixator muscles of the shoulder blades as well as strengthening the lower fixator muscles, and improving the function of the entire spine. We employed unilateral, also called single leg, training. We also contacted Dr. Andrew Toman, a neurologist and chirorpactor, for additional assistance.

Klara H. (born 1974) - (began training December, 2012)

Fitness training goal:

Restore shoulder mobility

The story:

Klara underwent left shoulder surgery in September 2012. Even after 3 months she wasn´t satisfied with her shoulder mobility, therefore she contacted me. We began exercise regularly in the gym together following up her rehabilitation. We worked on stretching her shoulder muscles, ligaments and tendons. We also strenghtened her muscles in the scapula area. The goals were achieved very quickly.

1. External arm rotation (all movements on the pictures were taken before stretching)
