Client from Lindfield | Trainer: Ibrahim Saeed


Tell us about your life before joining Vision Personal Training Lindfield?

I was heavily into running, averaged around 20-30km/week. I started having knee problems the physio said that my quads were not engaging and I needed to build strength. He suggested I slow down on the running and start weights. Vision had just opened, it was close to home and the kids school at the time. Here I am 14 years or so later… still coming to Vision. 

What was the state of your health and fitness when you started and what affect was this having on your life?

I was very lean, not much muscle mass. Knee problems were my main physical issue.

What results have you achieved at Vision Personal Training Lindfield?

I don’t gain muscle mass easily. So it has been a long, long process. Ligament-ally I am loose and prone to injuries (all of my own making). Over the past 14yrs, I have gained strength and more stability. Through out the years all my trainers have been fabulous in keeping me safe from myself. 

What did you find was the most useful tool at Vision?

The one on one training for me is the most beneficial part of Vision.

What impact has your new health and fitness had on your new life?

Keeping fit and healthy has for a long time now been part of me and my families life. I think seeing me achieve overall strength encouraged my husband and later both our kids to join Vision.

What keeps you motivated?

I love the feeling of a tough work out… sure I may swear and occasionally take a swipe at Ibi or Connor - but at the end, it is an incredible feeling to have got through something that you thought was impossible. 

What advice would you give to someone that is currently thinking about taking a positive step towards changing their health and fitness?

My advise would be, you only get one body. There are no do overs. Looking after yourself now, there is no downside. Only rewards. Down the track, when you see results, it is an incredible feeling.

If you were to recommend Vision Personal Training Lindfield to your friends, what would you say?

The trainers and the clients at Vision are fantastic. That you won’t be alone, that you will have everyone there to spur you on. It is a community.
