Many of us have lost a lot of our incidental exercise because we are working from home and moving a bit less which can cause stiffness, pain, low energy and even weight gain (and even for our pets). Thats more reason to increase your fitness and wellness plan and the best part is there are lots of options to suit your comfort levels.
Beyond general fitness we also need to make sure we are still taking care of ourselves and our pets. Perhaps it’s having a chat about the best vitamins, meal plans, seeing a physio or chiropractor about some pain or stiffness. Get fit, feel great and support a local Lane Cove Business at the same time. Here is a list of local options for you and your pet for being healthy in Lane Cove.
Gyms and Fitness Studios

At 4 Elements of Health, we focus on Exercise, Nutrition, Rest and Relaxation
When I first started in the fitness industry I thought health was all about exercise and nutrition until I was struck down with my own health challenge, and after hundreds of hours of research I believe these are the 4 key areas that everyone can manage for optimum health. At 4 elements of health I will guide and inform you on how you can incorporate every element into your life to make you the best version of you.
Andrew has been in the fitness industry on and off since 2006 kicking off at No.1 Martin Place “The Health Club”. There he deepened his knowledge from functional training, anatomy, how to move the body optimally for everyday life. His clientele have ranged from the desk jockey, sedentary to performance.
At 4 elements, Andrew will guide you through the 4 main areas of health with actionable techniques, tips and information to better incorporate these into your daily life.
- EXERCISE – Fundamental movements, plus the exercising doesn’t stop at 4 elements, incorporating a 5 minute morning routine ‘wake up your body’ is essential to prime your body for the day ahead, also helping you fall asleep faster in the evening
- NUTRITION – Healthy eating guidance and benefits of ‘Time Restricted Eating’, optimising the body’s circadian rhythms to process and digest food.
- REST – One of the most critical areas at 4 Elements as sleep plays a very important part in your health, so not only quantity but more importantly the quality of your sleep. A good sleep hygiene
- RELAXATION – Breathing techniques to get you out of the fight or flight mode and back into the parasympathetic nervous system
My purpose is to create a physically and mentally stronger you through a process of dynamic, strengthening and conditioning exercises. I am driven by building a new platform of strength and skill sets, bringing you into a state of physical fitness and achieving your goals. I am Deborah Nelson, Personal Trainer and sole proprietor of 330fit, internationally accredited and trained and featured in Shape Magazine, Singapore November 2010 and 2012. Feeling that what worked in your 30’s, 40’s, maybe 50’s, is no longer working, then my expertise provides you with a boutique gym setting, no judgments or uneasiness. My passion is seeing you develop into an energetic, spirited and zestful new you. My mission, your personal and fitness goals achieved.
Address: 1/595 Mowbray Road West Lane Cove

HYPOXI Lane Cove
WHAT IS HYPOXI
Before HYPOXI, no training method could be shown to reduce fat in targeted areas of the body. However, an independent study has shown that a HYPOXI workout is significantly superior to a conventional workout when it comes to targeting fat and cellulite in stubborn areas. In fact, HYPOXI Sydney has been hailed the “natural alternative to liposuction” by Oxygen magazine.
