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.

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 ...

You’ll see on the Classes page of my website that on Tuesday 14 Jan, our 7.30pm Fitness Pilates class is in Waterside Social Club, 26 Inglis Green Road.

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.
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. 

So in answer to ‘what’s enough exercise a week’? the answer was that new activity guidelines were issued by the UKs ...
