Hi and welcome to another great week of Complementary Fitness classes.
Reminding you that Bridge Road, Colinton is closed for 3 weeks for gas repairs.  For me, I’ll come up Craiglockhart to Colinton Road for Dreghorn Loan classes instead.

Diana (Wed class) gave me a newspaper fitness article where questions were asked on various fitness topics and answers given.

Hi and welcome to another great week of Complementary Fitness classes – I’m really looking forward to seeing you and working out with you, can’t wait.

According to an article on Dr Mercola’s website: ‘without resistance training, your muscles will atrophy and lose muscle mass’ and if we do nothing to prevent sarcopenia (I mentioned this a couple of weeks ago: it’s age-related loss of muscle mass), we can expect to lose about 15% muscle mass between the ages of 30 and 80-ish.  ...

It was our 40th wedding anniversary on Saturday so we’re just back from a great weekend with the family (6 of us) and stayed in a lodge in Kenmore, Loch Tay.  It was lovely to spend the time together, go for walks, out for coffee and lunch and have dinner together to celebrate.

FITNESS & LIFESTYLE

I was reading an article in Sept’s issue of Healthy mag about community fitness classes in local church halls and found it really interesting. 

You might/might not know that I’ve been teaching fitness classes (in Colinton particularly) for over 25+ years now and for maybe 18/20 years in Craiglockhart church hall (I can’t remember exactly!)

The article talked about local community spaces eg church halls being low-tech and low-glam, about the fact that there are no showers, no smoothie bars/cafes and no workout clothing/footwear ...
