Did you know that…
In Fitness Pilates, we talk about having an imaginary corset or thick belt on and it being pulled in round our waist but we should be thinking of not just of just ‘pulling in or bracing your abs’ but ALL the way round like a cylinder! Connective tissue attaches from your rib cage to your pelvis, not just at the front of the body but sides and back too and it’s this area that we want to keep braced and strong during Fitness Pilates.

5 Oct World Teachers Day to raise awareness of the work done by teachers and to support them to help the learning of future generations.

7 – 11 Oct is BackCare Awareness Week did you know that on average, nearly 9 hrs a day is sent sitting down?
Back pain isn’t inevitable as we age if we look after ourselves and keep our body strong and healthy.
Bad backs do account for millions of days off work and also have an impact on other aspects of our lives.
Lets improve our posture, improve our core abdominal and back muscles and restore the natural curves in our spine.
How? Join our Fitness Pilates and Fitness Yoga classes.

8 Oct World Sight Day. The day aims to raise awareness of blindness and vision impairment, as well as ways to help people with these conditions.

Beetroots are immune boosting, have anti-cancer properties and are rich in minerals.
You can juice raw beetroot too, here’s a simple recipe that I love from FMTV:
Juice: 1 beetroot, 1 carrot, 2 sticks celery, ½ unwaxed lemon, 1 apple + a small slice ginger.
New research has confirmed that regular consumption of beetroot juice increases endurance.
Exercisers who drank beetroot juice for 15 days had lower blood pressure and more dilated blood vessels at rest and during exercise, all thanks to the nitrates in beets. from healthy

Something to think about:
“There is no diet, that will do what eating healthy does. Skip the diet and just eat healthy” FMTV

Fitness Pilates and Fitness Yoga exercises and stretches help to :
build up the back muscles evenly, elongate and align the spine for better stability, expand the diaphragm, increase overall flexibility, strength, and balance, increase range of motion in hips and shoulders, enhance concentration through focused breathing, help bodies recover faster from injuries so lots of benefits for a stronger and more stable core.

Stretch + lengthen

Stretch + lengthen

“to achieve the highest accomplishments within the scope of our capabilities, in all walks of life, we must constantly strive to acquire strong healthy bodies and develop our minds to the limit of our ability” Joseph Pilates
