Personal Training

Tabaka Fitness | Meet the Clients


I have been training with Jan now for just over 5 months with my primary aim being to lose weight and improve my fitness. The results have been fantastic. I have lost just over 5 stones and dropped 6 dress sizes! Not only have I lost weight I have gained so much knowledge with regards to exercise and the best types of exercises to achieve results. Jan has also provided me with endless hints and tips with regards to my diet and why he recommends the types of foods that he does, to give me a better understanding so I can make the right choices. Thanks to Jan I now enjoy exercise and look forward to training as he provides a friendly atmosphere to train in whilst always pushing and motivating you to achieve you’re maximum potential. Personal training, for me, has been one of the most positive changes I have made.

Alana’s stunning 5 stones weight loss in less than 6 months!


I first came to Jan out of curiosity to check my body composition (body fat percentage etc) and to seek some general advice. I’ve always eaten relatively healthily and trained hard but I wasn’t getting the results I wanted. Jan’s advice has enabled me to make small tweaks and changes in my diet that have really accelerated my results. I have only been working with Jan for just over a month and I feel I have made some of my best progress within this time. I would recommend Jan to anyone serious about getting results.

Jan was consistently helping me with preparation for a NAC Bodybuilding Championships in Manchester (as a qualifier to world championships) where I’ve earned a First Place in the UK! He was professionally measuring my body composition (inc. body fat) and helping me with diet, nutrition supplementation. He’s also helped me with posing. I would say Jan is one of best trainers I was working with.

Acroyoga Classes In Bristol (Clifton)

Acro Yoga combines yoga, healing arts, and acrobatics

It’s good to mix things up, even if it sounds like an odd recipe, doing outside training with BodEnvy in Orlando, while running and yoga is great. All three styles truly balance each other out (pun intended). Let’s drink straight from the source at AcroYoga.org: “Acro Yoga blends the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics, and the loving kindness of healing arts. These three lineages form the foundation of a practice that cultivates trust, playfulness, and community.” Who can say no to that?

Nutritional Analysis

Body Composition and Nutritional Analysis

Body composition is the amount of fat vs. lean muscle tissue in the human body. These are commonly expressed as a percentage of a person’s total weight. Body weight alone in not a clear indicator of good health because it does not distinguish how many pounds are from fat and how many are from lean body mass.

Body Composition and Nutritional Analysis session will comprise of determining your body fat vs lean mass, Body Fat % and your somatotype to help to understand your individual body type. You’ll also be asked to provide 5-7day nutritional diary for further analysis and you will receive comprehensive analysis and nutritional report.

What to expect?

Thai Yoga Massage is practiced on a thick mat on the floor, the client fully clothed in loose comfortable attire. It is a sequence of movements combining compression, assisted stretching, acupressure, trigger point therapy, muscle tissue manipulation and energy balancing. The effects are felt body wide, increasing circulation and flexibility, promoting deep relaxation of both deep and superficial tissues. It has a calming and quieting effect on the nervous system and many report going into deep states of meditation during the massage and giving you lean muscle and toning through the relaxation of the muscles, click here for more information.

Who is it for?

Thai Yoga Massage bridges the gap between relaxing and remedial massage and offers combination of both. It’s ideal for you if you want to feel relaxed and pleasantly rejuvenated like you haven’t felt in a while! It’s great for anyone, regardless the age or gender, whether you work long hours in the office, or you’re an athlete who needs to address specific tightness in the body or whether you are after treating yourself to a relaxing stress relieving massage at the end of a stressful day/week.

Precautions for people with health conditions
As the saying goes, there are two sides of a coin. All these benefits are not without limits. The following list is not really known or talked about. Not a lot people know about these precautions which I’m hoping to change. This is important information and should be shared. Without this knowledge prior to getting a massage, it could cost you your life. I’m being serious, there have been multiple reported cases of people getting massages when their body wasn’t ready for one.
People with the following sicknesses should be abstained or be very careful during the massage. Because stimulating blood circulation or stretching the muscles and tendons may cause injury to the body. Here is a list of the potentially dangerous illnesses when mixed with massage: High blood pressure, heart disease, osteoporosis, neurological diseases especially spinal cord, loose joint disease, coronary artery disease or lymphatic obstruction, diabetes. If you have any of these, you should consult your doctor first. I repeat DO NOT get a massage WITHOUT consulting your doctor!
Cancer patients should not have massages because cancer can spread to the other organs. If the pain really hurts, you can ask for a gentler massage but please avoid the cancerous areas.

People after 2 weeks of surgery is ok for them to have a massage, depending on the area the surgery was. You can contact the Sydney plastic surgeons to have the best surgery experience and they can let you know how to proceed with the massage.
People with dermatitis should not have a massage. It will spread the virus to other areas and also spread to the massage therapist.
Do not massage while having a fever of more than 38 degrees Celsius because the muscles are easier to get damaged at this temperature.
If you are injured and have broken bones or some bones are not attached do not get a massage.
Pregnant women should not have massages, especially in the first 3 months. If you have back pain after first 3 months, you can get massages but notify your therapists and they should not massage your abdomen nor let you lie down on your front but on your side instead.
If you have very hot, red swollen joint pain, you should avoid any massage until symptoms subside. The massage will cause more inflammation.
Women who are in menstruation should not massage. Pity, these are the times I feel like getting a massage the most!
For any wounded area, do not massage. It may delay healing or promote ulceration.
