Be in control of your body and not at it's mercy - Joseph Pilates

Carey King

Pilates
About

Pilates is the foundation that I believe builds our bodies towards achieving overall health and strength. I have been able to successfully utilise Pilates to help my clients correct or prevent injuries. Pilates builds a strong core to support intensive training, to correct posture and build lean strong muscles. My clients have been able to develop a positive self-confidence and above all relax and destress.

Pilates has allowed me personally to recover from two pregnancies and restore my body to its strong and lean state and along the way has given me a passion for helping others who are in pain or wanting to feel better in their own skin.

Boxing Coach
About

The Rumble in the Jungle was a historic boxing event in Kinshasa in 1974. Held in Kinshasa, it pitted the undefeated world heavyweight Champion George Foreman against the challenger Muhammad Ali, the former heavyweight champion. The event had an attendance of 60,000 people. Ali won by knockout, putting Foreman down just before the end of the eighth round, becoming one of the most memorable sporting events, of the 20th century.

I must have watched this fight a thousand times, he inspired me to take up boxing at the age of 9. After many years of grueling training and Armature fights, I was awarded a Pro Card in 2000, where I had 17 professional fights, of which I Won 11 (7 coming from a TKO), 3 Draws and 3 losses.

In 2016, I applied for my Boxing (Coach) License, where I training many Boxers that became Champions under my wing, such as:

  • Ludomo Lamati – SA Champion and IBF Intercontinental Champion in the Jnr Featherweight Division.
  • Hellen Siwaka – Female SA Champion and WBF intercontinental champion boxer from Malawi in the bantamweight Division.
  • Erick kapia – African Welterweight Champion and the ABU Champion of Congo.

Weight loss and Transformations
About

January 2018 was the start of an amazing journey. I was an insecure woman, I hated my body, I felt like everyone was better than me. I felt empty inside, I had no desire to improve myself because I had no drive and no desire to accomplish anything in life because in my mind, I was not capable of achieving anything. After seeing my vacation photos of December 2017, I made the decision to change my life for good. I changed to a healthier lifestyle. I spent my lunch hours day in and day out grinding in the gym. somehow, when I was training, my mind cleared. I loved it so much that now I was focusing more on my weights and reps than “feeling sorry for myself”. I unlocked my passion.

In august 2018 I decided to get assistance from an experienced coach, Jason Nafte. he took me to the next level. I entered my first bodybuilding competition, PCA Provincials, and took placed first in the ladies toned figure cate- gory. this fuelled my fire. Two weeks later I won the PCA South African Championships, competing against the best of the best in South Africa. In October 2018 I represented South Africa in the PCA World Championships that was held in Birmingham, Great Britain. My passion for this sport and lifestyle has grown so much that I have changed my career to helping other individuals change their mindset, to realise that life is beautiful, that they are capable of becoming what they have always wanted to be. To show them that this is possible for anyone with a strong will and determination. I believe to be anything but average. The easiest thing to do is give up, the hardest it so keeps going.

As your trainer I will help you believe in yourself and help you uncover your own strengths and motivation. Dominate today, your ultimate goal is to be better than yesterday.

Illuminated emancipation, freedom, unalloyed and untainted bliss await you, but you have to choose to embark on the inward journey to discover it.

Sabrina Del Sette-Graca

Yoga
About

My journey with yoga started fifteen years ago. I was drawn to the physical use of the body as a form of expression and creativity, and bringing the mind, body and soul together. After my very first class, I felt like I had finally found “home”. I completed my two year instructor’s training course, and have instructed students of all ages, sizes and abilities. Yoga requires only your body, mind and the force of gravity. Aside from the obvious physical benefits like flexibility and strength tailored and designed by your own body’s ability, weight and structure, it is a panacea for relieving stress and for teaching the body and mental pathways to heal themselves. Yoga is about a journey of self discovery, and it will deliver balance to whichever part of you needs it the most. I look forward to taking this journey together with you.
