Welcome!

Mint is a whole body health and fitness centre, we are “Specific” in our design and operation.

We have selected programmes and equipment that is target specific that is designed to create more variety and difficulty as you progress.

Our difference is that we are not the general run of the mill fitness centre. We are small, niche and committed in ensuring that our professional team specifically caters to all aspects of your health and fitness needs. We offer both individual components of our fitness centre to full integrated packages.

Each individual is allocated a “Mint Minder” who will guide you through you experience at Mint. If you have any hitches throughout your experience then your “Mint Minder” will assist or get one of the other team members to help you out.

Each team member is specific in his or her profession (no jack of all trades here). Our integrated approach makes us unique as our team works together to maximise your results.

Together we use consistent and individual follow-up procedures along with cutting edge online technology to ensure you have the latest nutritional info and exercises specific to you.

About Our Services

Our clients come to us with a wide range of goals, such as weight loss, specific event or sport training and injury rehabilitation. Our philosophy is about total health, we to this by identifying and addressing the underlying issues in order to deliver genuine and long-lasting improvements.

We have discovered over a period of time that clients use our services differently. Some come to us firstly through our nutrition clinic, others for personal training sessions or gym memberships & others use our massage service as their first point of call.

Over time most clients & members have utilised our other services as they discover the benefits of our integrated approach.

Depending on the individual client we can offer elements of exercise, nutrition and massage for an integrated personalised training approach or mix and match the training programmes to suit your individual needs.



Personal Training

A personal trainer will take your body from where you are to where you want to be. Think of us as the expert guides on your journey to health and well-being. We'll keep you on track and get you there in one piece - with no dodgy shortcuts.

Of course if you can make it by yourself, stop reading now and click through to givemeamedal.com

But if those six-month-old cross-trainers have still got that new-shoe smell - or “nutrition” means ordering a Diet Coke with your drive-thru meal – then congratulations, you're normal. And we should get together.

“75% of people who exercise are not getting the results they want. Of the 25% of the people who do get results, 90% of them are working with a personal trainer.”
Our team of trainers are happy to hand hold (for the virgin exercisers) or push a bit harder (for the more skilled exercisers) to get the results you work so hard to achieve. We don’t just tell, we’ll listen, work with you, and get you to where you want to be (all while having a bit of fun along the way!)

It's never too late to start exercising, but always too soon to stop.



Massage

Healers throughout time and throughout the world have intuitively and independently developed a wide range of therapeutic techniques using touch.

Here in the 21st century, we have taken the best bits from the history of massage and included modern scientific research to give your body the best chance at rejuvenating, revitalising and rejoicing! Here at Mint Health & Fitness, we have qualified massage therapists available to ease away the stresses of the daily grind, or help to heal injury.

..........................................................................

Why massage?

There are many benefits ranging from treating chronic diseases and injuries to easing the increasing tensions of our modern lifestyles. Having a massage does more than just relax your body and mind - there are specific physiological and psychological changes which occur, even more so when massage is applied as a preventative, regular therapy and not simply mere luxury. Massage not only feels good, but it can help treat pain.

..........................................................................

Massage promotes:
  • Decreased anxiety.
  • Enhanced sleep quality.
  • Greater energy.
  • Improved concentration.
  • Increased circulation.
  • Reduced fatigue.
  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defence system.
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.
So whatever your reason for massage (and there are many!!) the team at Mint are dedicated to offering a professional, personalised service in a comfortable setting. See you soon!



Nutrition

We love food …and we want you to as well.

We all know the saying “healthy body = healthy mind”, and our Mint team live this every day. Food should be used to nourish and maximise the body’s performance and looks, our whole food programs do just that.

We put physical and mental balance at the top of our priority list, and nutrition is a key part of this. We’ll teach you how to pick the best food choices and use preparation techniques that are simple, easy and tasty.

Clinical Nutrition

Energy, Vitality Zest for Life Comes From Within!

Great nutrition is essential to aging well. To age well you need to eat well. Eating the right kind of food will have an immediate impact on the way you look - and on the way you feel.

Despite advances in science and modern medicine, modern life makes it difficult for us to stay healthy and the imbalances created by such a lifestyle is proving to be a ‘sickening’ way to live with significant increases in many common diseases.

A typical diet is often too high in saturated fat, sodium, and sugar and too low in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, calcium, protein and fiber. Such a diet contributes to four of the six leading causes of death and increases the risk of numerous diseases, including:
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Hypertension
  • Stroke
  • Osteoporosis
  • Many cancers (colon, prostate, mouth, throat, esophagus, lung, stomach)
Disease prevention and adopting a healthy lifestyle involves many lifestyle choices which are not always easy when it comes to knowing where to start! MINT’s nutrition efforts cover a wide spectrum of topics related to good nutrition to assist you in maintaining a lifestyle to live and age well.

Energy, vitality and zest for life come from within - from a body and brain supplied with the essential nutrients needed for optimum performance and the daily functional tasks we ask of it.

Good nutrition is also vital for skin tone and muscle tone - every cell in your body needs essential nutrients to regenerate and repair. Eating the right foods has a huge impact on the way your skin looks and how well it copes with the passing of time.

This part of the site not only looks at anti aging nutrition it is important to highlight that good food shoud be eaten with enjoyment. Enjoying what you eat is such an important part of eating healthily.

You won’t find recommendations that you eat something just because its the latest anti aging or wonder food.
On the other hand - there ARE articles on topics such as the glycemic index, trans fats and antioxidants - but written in straight forward way with practical tips to help you enjoy the best nutrition as part of your normal routine.
We can also help you to discover your own personalised nutrition requirements and the benefits of foods beyond basic nutrition. Your personal nutritionist can provide you with individual dietary recommendations that help you to take control of your own health through the food choices you make.
