THE ELYSIUM ETHOS

Why Elysium? The word Elysium originates from Greek mythology meaning “A Place or Condition of Ideal Happiness”. That’s what we have created. A place that you can develop every element of yourself to become truly happy.

The ethos of Elysium Gym is simple. To introduce Edinburgh to a new and improved training facility model.  Not only will this new model deliver the optimal physical training environment but will provide you with a community you will feel proud to be part of.

Health and Fitness: Conventionally, a gym is where people focus on getting fitter and changing the look of their body however a missing element is what really makes people healthy. Elysium Gym will change the way people think about their health and fitness from the inside out.

GYM EQUIPMENT

Elysium is all about TRAINING. It is therefore of the highest priority that the facility is set up so that all our members can perform their desired training methods to produce results. The gym will boast a range of different training sections including:

An Elite 8 Bay training rig designed to allow a group of trainees to train at the same time with optimal efficiency. This will be the heart of our bespoke Elysium classes.

A section dedicated to the training of the posterior chain. This amazing concept will boast group training classes by one of our elite coaching team.

A dedicated section just for powerlifting with the finest equipment available to our industry to allow you to be your absolute best. All this, with the most unique place to do it – Elysium. From Rogue IPF Calibrated Powerlifting Plates and Deadlift Bars, to Eleiko Weightlifting Bars with Solid Athletix Calibrated Weightlifting Plates, we have got you covered.

A dedicated area for mobility and soft tissue manipulation to ensure that you not only look your best but move the way you are meant to, pain free and ready to train hard.

The finest strength equipment will be located throughout the facility in order for you to have a wide variety of options for you to complete your exciting training sessions.

A plethora of functional gym kit throughout the facility to allow you to move and perform optimally, and have lots of fun doing it. Think Prowlers, Tyres, Sledge Hammers, Ropes, Gymnastic Rings, Slam Balls, Plyometric Boxes and much more.

EDUCATION

Knowledge truly is the key to attaining a desired result. Elysium Gym will educate you in every aspect of health, fitness and performance to ensure you not only get the results you are looking for but understand how things work so that you can continue to progress. In order to deliver this promise, we have designed our amazing classes aimed at delivering this knowledge but in a practical environment.

Our environment, our lifestyle, our diet and our health are all interlinked. Ongoing research clearly demonstrates a significant relationship between deficiencies in micro-nutrients and physical and mental ill health.

We are what we eat.

What we eat has a powerful effect on our overall health. We’ve all heard it before, haven’t we?

The fact is we are a highly complex chemical laboratory with eight trillion chemical reactions taking place every second and some will inevitably go wrong if we don’t supply them with the correct raw material.

For optimal health we need a mixture of carbohydrate, protein, fat, fibre and micronutrients. Plants (go for raw to get the best stuff), fish and a little meat are the go-to sources for that healthy combination. The fresher the better. Go for organic and free range where you can. The less we process our food the better it is for us, so if you really want to go all out plant your own fruit and veg to get the freshest of fresh.

Sadly, that is just not possible for most of us, as the reality of food in the Western world is that the majority of it offers little genuine nourishment.

So, to make up for these short falls, we need to supplement.

We need 60 different micronutrients every day in minute amounts but because minerals are elemental our bodies cannot make them. We must consume them. Their importance cannot be overstated. Linus Pauling, twice nobel prize winner knows just how important they are: “you can trace every sickness every disease and every ailment to a mineral deficiency”

Minerals

Our food is increasingly deficient in minerals. Deficient soils resulting from over farming and use of pesticides that kill the micro-organisms which break down the soil to release these minerals. This was widely recognized at the United Nations Rio Earth Summit in 2012, where Dr Rana stated: “when people consume a diet derived from crops grown on nutrient deprived soil the intake of essential elements becomes inadequate which will lead to impairment of the relevant physiological functions and cause disease”.

To compound the problem, farmers only replace Nitrogen Phosphate and Potassium as artificial fertilizer. These chemicals give good yields with large fleshy crops but cannot replace the missing minerals.

Modere Mineral Solutions contains all the minerals our bodies require in a form that guarantees the best absorption. It comes in a liquid form and the minerals are plant derived and chelated – bonded to a protein to make them easy to absorb. The solution also contains vitamins that are essential for maximal absorption into our cells. This feature of adding other agents, like vitamins, acting synergistically to maximize performance of products is standard practice with Modere.

Vitamins

Vitamins are essential both as co factors in almost all biochemical reactions and as antioxidants to prevent damage to our cells and the DNA. This enables them to play a role in the health of all our tissues and organs. They are categorized into those that are fat soluble – A,D,E and K – and those that are water soluble – B and C.

Vitamin A is predominately responsible for good vision, healthy skin and hair and is necessary for fertility, fetal development and immunity.

Vitamin D is best know for it regulation of calcium and healthy teeth and bones, but it is increasingly recognized that it also plays an important role in our immune system and in cancer prevention.

Vitamin E is important in maintaining the structure of the cell membrane of every cell in our bodies. It is a powerful antioxidant preventing oxidization of fatty acids particularly within the cell membrane. It is also involved in the anti-inflammatory, immune systems and in DNA synthesis.

Vitamin K is best known for its role in blood clotting, and also in laying down strong mineralized bone.

The B Vitamins are a large group of vitamins whose main function is in the production of energy. But they are also essential in fetal development (especially in prevention of spina bifida), and the production of red and white blood and nerve cells. Their role in the production of serotonin is important in preventing depression.

Vitamin C is best known for its role in the production of healthy collagen, it is the most active anti-oxidant in the aqueous phase of living tissues, and also plays a role in our immune system.

Modere Adult Multivitamin contains 18 essential vitamins minerals and antioxidants working together to provide the optimal absorption. It contains all the B vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, Biotin and folic acid. The B vitamins are essential in allowing us to produce energy in the cells. They are also involved in the production of neurotransmitters and cell division especially in pregnancy where folic acid prevents spina bifida. B12 is essential in the production of red blood cells and nerve sheath and deficiency can result in permanent nerve damage.

Take 1 Tablet daily

Modere Cell Protect contains vitamin A, C and E to provide both water soluble and fat soluble antioxidant protection along with the even more powerful antioxidant found in pine bark and grape seed extract.

Vitamin A is also essential for good skin and vision and Vitamin C is required for the production of healthy collagen essential for healing, and when training and building muscle and tendons.

Take 1- 2 capsules daily

Fat

Fat is an excellent source of energy and is very energy dense which makes it ideal to store energy within the body to use when food is scarce. There are other fats that are necessary components of our cell membranes including nerves and the brain and some of these cannot be produced by our bodies and must be obtained in the diet. These are the essential fatty acids or Omega 3 fatty acids.

They are natural anti-inflammatory agents and can also prevent and even reverse, hardening of the arteries that can lead to heart attack and stroke.

Modere omega 3 contains the two most important fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). They are sourced and tested to ensure they are free from bacteria, heavy metals and PCBs increasingly found in farmed fish. They also contain Vitamin E to prevent the oil becoming oxidized.

Take 1 capsule 3 times a day

Protein

Protein is the second most common molecule found in the body after water. It is essential in maintaining the structural integrity of the body being the major structural component of all human cells especially muscle but also all other organs including bone, skin and hair. They are also essential in the production and function of our hormones, immune system, cellular repair and blood cells. Proteins can also be used as a source of energy.

Proteins are composed of chains of amino acids. There are nine essential amino acids, (phenylalanine, valine, threonine, tryptophan, methionine, leucine, isoleucine, lysine and histidine), which can only be obtained from our diet.

Protein can be obtained from both plant and animal sources. Meat and products from milk, eggs, fish and soy contain all the essential amino acids and are considered “complete proteins”

Pea protein has a very similar composition to soy but contains no allergenic components. It has a high fibre content and a lighter texture making it easier to digest. It also contains many branch chain amino acids considered important in building muscle.

Sedentary individuals require around 0.8g/kg per day but endurance athletes and strength-building athletes will require considerably more possibly up to 1.8g/kg per day.

Modere Protein provides the optimal blend of pea and soy protein providing a complete protein source, along with fibre, vitamins and minerals. It is from vegetarian source, gluten-free with no bitter or chemical aftertaste.

Take 2 scoops (32g) mixed with 250mls of water, as required

To purchase go to “shop” at www.modere.eu and add promo code 405168 for initial discount.

Human Microbiome and Probiotics

Humans have evolved over millennia to live in harmony with bacteria. We have 100 trillion bacteria within our gut.

Probiotics are essential for optimal health. They crowd out harmful bacteria, bind up toxics in our diet, help digest and absorb our food, and produce some essential vitamins. They protect against travellers and antibiotic induced diarrhea, heartburn, constipation, IBS, inflammatory bowel disease and recurrent UTI in females.

Most importantly they are essential for good immunity. Research has shown that regular exposure to good gut bacteria can reduce the risk of developing, and even reverse eczema, hay fever and other allergies. There is also evidence that they can benefit chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and ADHD in children.

Modere Probiotics (Protozymes) is a high performance formula containing the 5 most effective strains of bacteria (L. Acidophilus, L.Plantarum, L Rhamnosus, B. Bifidum, B.Longus) and the amino acid L-Glutamine which helps heal and seal the gut. It also contains the probiotic yeast S. boulardii, which also acts as a prebiotic, to rapidly expand the number of viable bacteria.

Take 1 – 4 capsules twice a day

To purchase go to “shop” at www.modere.eu and add promo code 405168 for initial discount.

Maximizing Performance

Maximizing performance and increasing alertness is of great importance not just to the athlete but also in our busy work life. Energy drinks have become almost indispensible, but they often contain very high levels of sugar.

It is well recognized that caffeine consumed at a dose of 3mg/kg body weight, one hour prior to exercise will enhance performance and alertness.

Modere Energy Drink (Acai) contains naturally sourced caffeine from green tea blended with the fruit juice from Acai, Apricot, Blueberry, Gaurana, Kiwi, plum and Pomegranate with vitamin B1 to boost your metabolism.

Take 1 bottle (90ml) 1 hour before workout, or as required
