"I went to the doctor. He told to me that I need surgery operation for my back and
I didn´t like his answer. ☹
I asked for another solution to solve my problem from him. He said that I have to stengthen my back and stomach muscles.
It may solve the back problem but its not guaranteed he said."
March, the month when things tend to slow down a little. The midd winter holidays are far behind us, the new years resolutions seem to loose their importance and then there's the time change. We loose an hour from our mornings and suddenly 7am means 6am according to our inner clock.......
All those excuses that we use to talk ourselves out from going to the gym. Except for some!
And for us, that someone was Tom.
Besides just crushing a new PR on his deadlift last month, Tom's story with us is quite exceptional too.
A few years ago Tom approached our Coach Ansku for the reason that he wanted to turn the direction that his ship was going to. He had excruciating low back pain that the doctor was not giving him many solutions to except a surgery. Tom was not happy with this answer so they agreed with his doctor to give it another 6 months, just train hard and if that was not going to be enough then....well that he never needed to find out!
Tom started with private sessions with our Coach supported by our Sport Fysio Simone. Slowly but surely the pain decreased and his body started baring more training load. But what was the key behind his success was his attitude...or that Tom never had an attitude. Even being as strong as he is, he never said another word, but instead just did the work. Came into the gym every single time a half an hour earlier just for to do his mobility work and he still does.
From a man in a verge of a back surgery to a man who lifts 160kg's! That, for us, is at least worth the title of a Member of the month!
