Complementary Fitness – change of class for 6.35pm Thursdays: Fitness Yoga
After 3 weeks of Core Combat, I’ve just decided to change the class to another Freestyle Fitness Yoga class for those who want to join our Yoga class but can’t make Friday mornings. Our Friday yoga class is becoming popular and there are about 4 men who regularly come and join our class too. I’m trying to encourage more guys to come to ALL of classes and it’s great to see them (and the girls/women too) improve week by week, become stronger, fitter and more flexible. Anyway, even though I love combat, our numbers were low – possibly because after a long day at work/home, maybe a hard combat session isn’t top priority? I want to encourage you all to join our new all-level Thursday 6.35pm Fitness Yoga workout/class. Flexibility is just one of the components of physical fitness and as we’re all looking to improve our muscular strength and endurance, cardiovascular endurance and work on body fat composition these days, flexibility and stretching can often be forgotten about. Let’s improve all aspects of our fitness and learn to use our breathe more ie the longer our breaths is, our mind should become more clear and calm.
Complementary Fitness – class feedback/comments:
“The class on Wednesday was absolutely brilliant, such a great workout, I love the music, movement, boxing and just feel so good afterwards. I always have so much more energy even after working hard in class. As always, your teaching skills are so good…. look out anyone who gets in my way!! An uppercut from me would see them off”
– thanks JB.

Deep breathing, where you fill your belly and expand your diaphragm downwards, is one of the most powerful exercises you can do to activate your lymph system which helps to detoxify your body. Breathe! #FMquotes
Bananas – they help to overcome depression due to the high levels of tryptophan, pack a punch for both pre-workout and post-workout relieve stress and act as a prebiotic. It’s so easy to add a banana into a smoothie
eg 1 fresh or frozen banana, 2T protein powder, 1 cup almond (or other non dairy) milk, 1tsp maca powder,
1tsp shredded coconut – blend, enjoy.
