WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

We love to move and feel empowered when we pursue movement excellence. We want to look good, feel good and move well. We have learnt that you can’t run towards something without running away from something else.

We have abandoned being specialists in one specific field or area of fitness in favour of adopting a holistic approach to movement

For this reason we have abandoned being specialists in one specific field or area of fitness in favour of adopting a holistic approach to movement. We believe without a doubt that the Foundation Movement System is the better way to train.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

Unlike regular gyms and personal training studios at Unity Gym we emphasize quality of movement, with a focus on how the body functions and how the client feels, instead of just how they look.

We believe that health is much more than skin deep and we teach our clients to adopt a healthier approach to wellness that supports movement goals, as opposed to aesthetic and body image goals.

We do this by providing a total health management program utilizing our Foundation Movement System (FMS) exclusive to Unity Gym, designed by company directors Rad and Yani Burmeister who have an accumulated 30 years experience training corporate professionals.

The FMS program is designed specifically to suit the needs of corporate professionals, and includes:

  • Specialized mindset coaching to manage addictions, stress and anxiety
  • Functional stretching and scientific core training to fix bad posture and joint pain
  • Traditional weightlifting to improve strength and boost your metabolism
  • Precision nutrition coaching to boost the immune system and reduce fat
  • Gymnastics and calisthenics movements to improve coordination and balance

The FMS program is delivered to you through both daily face-to-face personal training sessions, plus, practical, step-by-step online coaching that supports you 24/7, 365 days per year.

OUR TRAINING PHILOSOPHY

Your chair is hazardous to your health. Amounting research proves that too much sitting contributes to a host of diseases ranging from obesity and diabetes to cancer and depression.

Sitting literally shortens your life.

In fact, sitting has now been classified as being as dangerous as smoking by the world health organization. The facts are in: your chair is your enemy, and it’s disabling your body and destroying your health!

Problem is, it’s becoming exceptionally hard to avoid chairs for modern day corporate professionals. Worse still, most gyms and health clubs seem to encourage using assisted machines that require you to sit down to operate them.

This doesn’t help the sitting problems. It makes it worse!

You will learn how to lose weight, gain strength, identify and fix poor posture plus, how to prevent, treat, and resolve low back, neck, shoulder, and wrist pain; and avoid and reverse repetitive stress injuries.

At Unity Gym we use minimal assisted exercise machines in our program and instead, we favor whole body, functional movements that get you up, out of the seated position and capitalize on the incredibly unique physiological movement systems you have within your body.

The same muscle systems that are meant to provide you with balance, core strength and healthy posture.

At Unity Gym we provide a detailed battle plan for surviving the office chair and reclaiming your birthright of mobility and freedom from pain.

Our unique program provides creative solutions to reduce the amount of time you spend seated as well as strategies for the workplace that will improve your productivity and your overall health.

CORE VALUES

  1. Do more with less – We educate ourselves to the highest level and maximize the use of our equipment by utilizing functional training methods allowing more open floor space for our clients to move.
  2. Always lead by example – We practice what we preach and understand that a person who inspires leads by setting an example instead of telling people what to do it.
  3. Be authentic and honest – Inspiration comes from showing people who you really are and never lying, deceiving or projecting a false identity – especially on social media.
  4. Pursue growth and learning – Improve your value to the fitness industry by surrounding yourself with smarter people and commit to reading and listening to audio books to learn something new everyday.
  5. Be passionate and determined – Achieving mastery as a personal trainer takes 10,000 hours of specific study and hard work. You will need passion, determination and plenty of grit.
  6. Change lives and create raving fans – We provide the highest standard in customer service to create raving fans who absolutely love what we do because happy clients aren’t enough.
  7. Build open and honest relationships – We communicate clearly and honestly at all times to create life long relationships within the team and with our clients.
  8. Prioritize company culture and team – No matter how smart or skilled an individual is they will never be appreciated if they fail to contribute positively too, and support the company culture.
  9. Welcome and support the community – Not everyone feels comfortable joining a gym, especially the people who need our help the most. These are the exact people we welcome most.
  10. Strive for autonomy, mastery and purpose – Unity Gym promises to provide an environment that enables the most essential human requirements to achieve ultimate happiness in your life.
