Back in 2008 I was training (both in the studio and the Gym) towards my Black Belt in Kempo Karate Unfortunately due to misguided trainers at the Gym, I Herniated a disk in my lower back.
L3 & L5 with a 2.5 mm protrusion of my damaged disk.
After that incident I went around looking for different alternatives in how to get better from my Hernia with out surgery or any medical procedures , cortisone shots, etc.
I went back to the OLD GYM thinking I will get better by having a trainer in every session , followed every single instruction I was given , did what I was told every time, followed the routines perfectly but like every 3 – 5 weeks my back was again in severe pain. The pain was so bad some times that I wouldn’t be able to walk and I had to rest for 2 -3 weeks and then start all over again.
Got tired of the BS and I looked for personal trainers, out of three I visited no one really fulfilled my ideas in HOW they will help me.
I looked for CrossFit places and again visited two of them and didn’t feel the good vibe, since the trainers were absolutely A…..holes.
Finally I found Innovative Results a Fitness Playground Gym in an Industrial area, first time I visited the place I thought it was a joke… But MARK Elmasry told me just give us an opportunity and If you don’t like it we will refund your money, so I tried and I became addicted to the place and the trainers.
- I started training in Innovative Results back 4 years ago March 2013
- The reason I started with Innovative Results was because I was very tired of being injured all the times, due to bad trainers or people that didn’t care.
- The improvements came after 90 – 120 days. Not Feeling any pain in my lower back was the first positive sign.
- No Pain in my back made me feel incredible, I noticed something was working well, my CORE starting to feel strong again, so I increased from 2 to 3 times a week for training.
- Innovative Results helped me in just about every single aspect of my life. Not feeling PAIN was the most important, but also helped me at work , just to be able to function the way I was before my injury, to move and do things with out limitations, to be HAPPY again and not afraid if would make the wrong move my back will be in pain.
- My suggestion for the beginners is to be patient. The results will come not in 30 days but they will. In my case it took more than 3 months and after that it hasn’t STOP.
- Innovative Results changed my life in all the aspects. If you are healthy you are happy and all the people around you will be touched with the same feeling. Family , friends, co-workers see the differences in you, in a POSITIVE way, that sometimes it’s very hard to explain, because you are always in a good mood, always ready to help others, full of energy, good sense and well being are just few of the many ways I feel since I joined the Innovative Results Family.
- I would like to tell everybody about my experience, young people, adults all ages. It is always good to start , to feel good and happy. It doesn’t matter if you can’t crawl , or keep up with the others, don’t underestimate yourself, remember just by being at Innovative Results you are winning, you are improving your health, you look and making a big change in your life and the ones around you.
- I stayed committed to my training because I LOVE the way I feel, because after 4 years I can squat over 180 pounds and my back is GREAT, because I can enjoy my glass of wine every night and nobody believes I am 55 years OLD.
Thank you again.
