March 2014 Newsletter


February saw Kristin ‘marvellous‘ Marvin instruct another of her informative, interactive Self-Healing Workshops with her Therapy Balls that have the same density as human muscle on Saturday 15th February. So, for 2 & a half hours the 16 participants benefited from the most rewarding educational instruction.

Following on from yet another successful seminar Kristin is now coming on board to instruct a regular Thursday slot on the GX schedule & this will be FREE to members along with all our regular classes.

Healthy Life Fitness Centre Hillarys would like to introduce a brand new program to its club:

Tune Up Fitness ® (TUF). This class is exclusive to HLFCH & Australia, as Kristin Marvin is the only certified Tune Up Fitness ® instructor in the country. The primary mission of TUF ® is to get people to live better in their bodies.

Tune Up Fitness® is a fitness therapy format built around the three P’s – Pain, Posture and Performance. It helps eradicate pain, improve posture & enhance performance through a unique blend of Corrective Exercise, Self-Massage & Yoga-ilk movements.

By helping to identify and target your “body blind spots”; areas that are most overused, underused, misused, or abused TUF heals damaged muscle, increases strength and establishes healthy movement patterns to help you live better in your body. Each class will have a blend of distinctive ball rolling sequences, exercises and asanas throughout the hour.

Part 1 of the class involves the Tune Up Fitness® Therapy Ball System providing targeted self-massage trigger point therapy by using specially designed high grip rubber balls and focused movement routines that help penetrate through layers of skin and muscle to massage deeply into your high tension areas. TUF® Therapy Balls are the only therapy balls in the market today that were specifically designed for the muscles and connective tissue. These balls will literally melt away the pain and tension.

Part II of the class involves conscious corrective exercises and asanas (yoga poses) detailed with anatomy to educate people about their bodies, providing safety and stability in each movement, reducing risk of injury and informing about healthy movement off the mat, and outside of class. It is an empowering & educational experience enabling the person to walk out more knowledgeable and make better choices through their movement patterns.

This class is a game changer! You don’t need all those aches and pains in your body! Come to the new TUF® class with Kristin (former Exercise Physiology and Sport Psychology consultant) & be blown away with your newfound understanding & mastery of your body from the inside-out. Make the time to be educated about the body and its complexities.

Each person is required to have their own set of TUF® Therapy Balls. You can purchase your own personal set of balls from Kristin for $25.00/set (two balls and a tote).

If you are new to the class & are unsure long term attendance will be for you, then by all means you can have a trial run by borrowing a set of the mercurial Therapy Balls that belong to the health club who do have sets to loan out to you via Kristin. Please remember to return the balls to Kristin after the class.

See you all in the weekly Thursday early evening TUF® class that is delivered by Kristin Marvin (BSc MA) 1730 – 1830.
