After tearing 75% of my PCL in an accident, I opted for conservative treatment (physiotherapy only, no surgery). However, physio could only take me so far — I needed to strengthen my muscles more to protect my body and preserve my mobility in case I had another accident. Hygieia specialises in just that with the Starting Strength method. Coaches Shaun and Marvin were extremely experienced and quickly eased me into performing the compound exercises with proper form. The workout is almost always in the Goldilocks range: not too easy such that you don’t feel challenged, and not too hard that you are not able to complete.
At 28 years of age, my injury made me feel like a limping old man. But these 2 coaches turned that around for me. I absolutely cannot overstate how training here has helped my quality of life, and I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who wants to protect or regain their mobility.
