There is some research, as well as anecdotal evidence, to suggest that exercise can help anxiety.  We know that exercise helps to produce chemicals called endorphins which have a positive effect on mood and stress levels which, in turn, can help calm anxiety.

Complementary Fitness 10 February news

Schools are on holiday this week and our classes are ON too so come and work out with us in as many cases as you can.

Exercise is good for us in many ways including heart health, our mood, great for our joints, muscles and balancing our hormones.  Exercise can help us keep in shape and we can sweat out toxins so keep active and keep moving.

I was given an interesting article in The Times last month (thanks Diana – Wed class) by a celebrity fitness trainer ...

Complementary Fitness 27 Jan news

I read a recent fitness article in Dr Mercola’s website about the benefits of yoga on brain health saying that “yoga — which is suitable for most people, regardless of age or fitness level — has been shown to support healthy brain function and stave off neurological decline. 

Through modern imaging technology, researchers have been able to objectively confirm that yoga impacts the brain in beneficial ways that translate into improved attention, mental processing speed, executive function and emotional regulation.

Regular yoga practice has also been shown to ...

Complementary Fitness 20 Jan news + updates

Oh I’m soooo glad we’re back in Craiglockhart church hall again this week.  Phew!  You’ll know that if you were at our class last week in Waterside SC, then by the time the slimmers and the last of the leaders eventually left, it was 8.05/8/15pm!  It was a joke (not very funny though).  We did actually start our class while one of the slimmers was still being weighed (around 7.45pm when the class was supposed to finish at 7.30pm)  and I’m sure that they weren’t very ...

Complementary Fitness 23 Dec Christmas news

I hope that you had a good week ‘off’ last week and I’m sure that you’re all organised now for ‘the big day’.  I also hope that you’ve had some time to relax and put your feet up too. 

Last week, we were away and 3 of us (inc our son) had an amazing week in Club La Santa resort, Lanzarote.  We just absolutely love it there and at the end of the week, (as before), we just didn’t want ...

Hi and welcome to another great week of Complementary Fitness classes.

Advance notice re Thurs 12 Dec:

as you know, the General Election has been set for Thurs 12 Dec and instead of having our class in the Dell Room, as we usually do, I thought I’d just cancel the class that night.  Coz of the date, I’m sure that the Dell Room/Colinton Parish Church may be used for Christmas parties or other events especially being so close to Christmas.  I also wondered if you might be busy with other ...

“Don’t be afraid of failure or slow progress” ...
