Meet our Member – Dale
Dale /‘daIl/. Noun.
Outgoing member of Transcend Health. Born and bred in Bulahdelah, New South Wales. Known for his love of football, deep squats, and a Friday afternoon beer. Can be spotted at six in the morning at Transcend Health, doing Shavasana, or having “chat” about the latest Jets game.
It’s no secret that Dale Sumner, is part of Transcends foundation. He attends every class on offer, and is always up for a laugh.
Dale has answered some questions below to give others a snap shot into why he loves (and almost lives) at Transcend Health.
Q: What brought you to Transcend Health, and what has made you stay?
A: It was coming into finals time last year and I had hardly played any football for the (mighty) Cooks Hill soccer team, because of a long-term injury I had picked up early in the season. Duncan came to one of our games to help us out with any injuries, and he showed me some stretches that helped get me back playing… my Transcend journey grew from there.
It didn’t take long for me to realise that my body needed more than a few physio sessions to get where I wanted it to be, and Transcends holistic view of health and functional movement was a match for me.
Q: Why would you encourage others to join as a member?
A: Outside of the obvious benefits to your health I would say the people. Transcend is one big positive community, the support network, banter, and accountability to your trainer and fellow members is what makes the early mornings, and after work sessions a highlight of my day. We train together but also socialise together, and through Transcend I have met many people I now consider my good friends.
Q: What changes have you noticed in your body since training at Transcend Health?
A: Apart from my newly acquired sculpted guns and chiselled abs, the largest changes have been in the way I sit, and stand which has greatly reduced my back pain. I drive a lot for work, and it’s a relief back pain is no longer a huge fear for me. Daily life is easier.
