March motivation part two

Statistics show that the most common things to give up for lent are chocolate, swearing and alcohol. But this year, why not give up the excuses you keep making about getting your aches and pains sorted? If for the last 3 weeks you’ve been telling yourself that “it will be better in the morning”, yet the aches are going nowhere, then this is the time to get it sorted!
Giving up candy and fast food for lent is a valid sacrifice, but would you not benefit more from being pain free?

In a nutshell, the analysis of body composition.

Osteopathy and resistance training

Osteopathy is a non-invasive manual therapy that focuses on treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework. This framework includes treatment of joints, bones, muscles and spine.
There is a common misconception that resistance training may cause the body harm due to increased loading to the musculoskeletal system, which in turn makes people with existing problems turn away from weight training all together.

Winter exercise

Motivate your winter training mojo!

The sure sign of winter hit this week, with my huge white snow boots making not one, but two appearances this weekend. It is only weeks into the winter, and with numerous months to go, how do we rekindle the training excitement we saw in the hot summer days?
