ISAAC XAVIER - MindBody Specialist


Exercise is an act of self-care that has benefits beyond just musculoskeletal and cardiovascular physiology – it creates a positive mindset that permeates your whole life. Your choice to exercise is an affirmation to live well, healthy and strong.

I will teach you simple yet powerful principles of movement that will help you achieve all of your physical goals; whether that is becoming more mobile and free of pain, or maximising your sporting performance.

I also work closely with allied health professionals such as doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors, myotherapists and podiatrists to create a complete plan for injury prevention and also rehabilitation after injury or illness.

If you have an ongoing problem that just isn’t getting better I will help you to get beyond the symptoms to find the cause and begin healing.

 


From our sessions you will look better and move better, and you will exude an inner glow - the result of making your body your friend rather than your foe.

What People say about Isaac


  • Isaac helped me get moving!

    After a severe shoulder injury and reconstruction and many physio appointments, I was not happy with my progress. Isaac not only helped me understand the shoulder structure and muscles that needed re-building, he went multiple steps further to apply whole body and mind to my recovering. This part was such a bonus, it also reduced my stress levels and made all aspects of life so much calmer. This gave me the confidence to try new training methods and really stretch myself. I highly recommend Isaac to anyone who needs to mix up or revamp their training, but be warned, it will change your life.

  • “I like to describe Isaac Xavier as part personal trainer, part spiritual guru.

    His approach to training has been fine-tuned following many years working in the rehabilitation space, he is thorough, professional and genuinely wants to change lives. Isaac will have your back."

    - Martine Harte Award-winning journalist, Director www.engagingwomen.com.au

     

  • "Isaac is an insightful, unique man. He has been working in the industry for a long time, he is very passionate and dedicated to his work.

    Isaac lives his " creed" and he inspires others around him by setting a wonderful example.

    I have been working solidly for over 25 years with several genres of exercise and with different trainers and consider myself quite knowledgable but after working with Isaac for over 7 years, he is still taking me on a " learning curve" as he is constantly upgrading his studies.

    He also reviews his clients programs constantly with changes moving the client in when he or she is ready. He guides you to do the very best you can.

    Isaac stands for "quality not quantity". He has been given the gift of wanting to continually learn and is currently studying Neuroscience. He is very informed with nutrition and he also writes."

    You are in good hands with Isaac.

    - Ruth Chiodo

     

  • "Isaac Xavier is an amazing personal trainer. Not only that, he is an amazing person who cares about your physical wellbeing and also your wellbeing in general.

    At the age of 72 I had a total knee replacement. For the months leading up to the operation Isaac charted out a training regime under his supervision which made my recovery a short one.

    After the operation, when I was able to get back to the gym, Isaac again gave me a training regime to help me play golf again only a few months afterwards.

    Isaac is a caring person in all ways. I recommend anyone to have Isaac a their personal trainer. Thank you Isaac.

    - Dr. Eifion Thomas PhD in Quantum Physics

“I have known Isaac Xavier for 10 years in a professional context.

I have been sending my patients to Isaac over the years as I have found him to be the most knowledgeable and careful Personal Trainer I have come across.

In my work I deal with patients with pathology, which must be respected when they are to perform at the gym.

I have always found in Isaac someone who will listen and modify any exercise regime to consider the pathology and ensure the exercises are are effective and the patient is safe.

Isaac is always keen to learn about the injury or condition and is always happy to discuss the progress and the way forward for my patients who become his clients.

I have sent him patients over the years with a variety of musculoskeletal complaints, but also some chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, whereby the patient has flare ups which must be managed. Isaac does this easily, keeping the client in the gym with modifications to the program.

I have also experienced Isaac working in a more sporting set up with high level athletes who require a totally different set of parameters.

He is able to move from the high level to the more "fragile" rehab patient with ease.

Above all, I have found Isaac to be a very personable, respectful and professional individual in both a work and social context.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Isaac to join a multidisciplinary team, in which he would certainly be an asset and a pleasure to work with.

“When I first met Isaac, neck and back pain meant I struggled with even basic exercise. Week by week he guided me with incredible attention to detail – where my energy levels were at, what movements aggravated my pain, identifying where my weaknesses lay. He did it without bombarding me or getting under my skin, and he did with a huge sense of humour. Through him I have recaptured the joy of movement and play with my kids, and the victory of living without chronic pain. The simplicity of working with Isaac has changed my life.” - Erin Harte Internet software and security guru

Live life as though everything is rigged in your favour (1)

 

"In the time I have been training with Isaac, he has not only completely changed my workout, but my whole understanding and approach to exercise. Isaac pays particular attention to how my body responds to each individual exercise, constantly assessing and adjusting the workout to optimise the effectiveness of each session. He has a seemingly endless repertoire of exercises and routines, so each workout is different and challenging. Isaac’s focus on precision of movement, posture, breathing and cadence has changed the way I work out and I’m seeing results – improving my range of motion and my core strength, two important objectives of mine. Isaac’s knowledge of the physiology of the body and his ability to explain what we’re trying to do with each particular exercise is both valuable and motivating, because I can understand what I’m supposed to do and how that exercise is aligned with my goals. In addition and probably what I like best is Isaac’s positive energy and engagement – he’s relaxed and really approachable but he’ll expect you to show up ready to work as hard as you can. After three months I feel like we’re just getting started!” - Steve Castledine General Manager, adidas Area Pacific
“Isaac’s greatest asset is helping people to develop confidence in their bodies again, when they inherently believe they are broken.” - Tony Cassis Neuro Chiropractor
"On seeing Isaac you instantly know he is a very fit and healthy individual. The fact that he is Health Coach and Rehabilitation Specialist comes as no surprise. On meeting, talking to, and then discovering that he is such a moving poet, makes him an extraordinary individual. Whether his body informs his mind, or his mind informs his body, the fact is Isaac's poetry is a rare combination of both." - Ellen Komesarook Athlete and Montessori Educator, USA
"I first met Isaac many years ago when I asked for an experienced coach to help me in the gym without causing injury (I had had some less than positive experiences with gym trainers in the past). I was assured Isaac was different and I would be in safe hands and, that was the truth! I trained with him regularly for years, alone and then with a friend. Eventually, I found I could apply the skills he taught me, so I needed him less frequently – the true sign of an expert and empowering coach. I would call him then when I needed more education and guidance and when my daughter expressed interest in learning about how to safely navigate the gym, it was of course Isaac I called. He trained my adult daughter and I together and he made that fun and engaging (she also is a huge Isaac fan!). Isaac has helped me solve a persistent and debilitating shoulder/trapezius pain which I can say is gone for good. He is thoughtful, kind, trustworthy, funny and wholistic in his approach. He has a wealth of varied expertise that he draws on in almost magical ways (I called him Ninja for this!) to help his clients. He seeks to understand the root cause of physical ailments and help his clients see the interconnectedness of the mind and body and solve for the whole self. His passion for neuroscience and the biomechanics of the body infected me and supported me. I can truly say that Isaac is the BEST exercise coach I have ever, and probably will ever, have. - Deb Tegoni Lawyer, MBA, Yoga Teacher and Owner of Point Capri Luxury Escape https://pointcapri.com.au/
