Exercise to Fitness. NEW EXPERIENCE......

‘Make a Start’

Make a Start’ 6 week Exercise programme. I am here to offer you a simple to follow exercise regime that will slip easily into your lifestyle.

Simple Exercise Regime

For many of us exercise is something that doesn’t come naturally; we are all busy and tend to make excuses not to rather than to exercise. Sometimes it’s that we are too tired, or cannot be bothered to get into the car and head to either to the gym or head outside in the cold for a walk. You do not need an expensive gym all you need is a good pair of trainers and a positive mind-set to get started.

The benefits of exercise are so great there really isn’t an excuse not to.
Benefits include;

  • Improved muscular and cardio-respiratory fitness
  • Stronger bone density
  • Reduce risk of high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes and some cancers
  • Helps to manage your weight and reduces the risk of becoming obese

  • Delay the ageing process but most importantly after 20 minutes of aerobic activity you will feel better, your heart will pump fresh blood filled with oxygen around your body and the wind and sun on your face will make you feel fantastic.
    It doesn’t take too much effort or time to get started.

    Flexibility and Balance

    The following 6 week plan is aimed at sedentary people, that is for those who don’t exercise or haven’t for a while
    Each week follow the routine starting with a gently 20 minute walk on day 1, week 1.

  • As you get fitter we increase the intensity of your walks and repeat the whole programme again with renewed energy!

    Stretching first thing in the morning helps eliminate muscle and joint stiffness from sleep and stimulates circulation, which slows during sleep. Similarly, stretching before bed helps relax both body and mind to promote better sleep. And stretching for a few minutes every hour or two throughout the day will keep muscles from cramping. Whether it’s a few simple stretches or an entire yoga routine, stretching reduces both physical and mental stress. It will improve flexibility and balance, as well as sharpen concentration and boost your mood. And it’s easy to do anytime, anywhere, and at any fitness level.

  • Exercise to Fitness. ZEN CHI

    Zen Chi Exerciser

    The Chi Machine is the result of 38 years of medical and scientific research by renowned Japanese scientist Dr. Shizou Inoue. He invented the Chi Machine to enable the human body to gently sway from side to side in a figure of eight (the same way a goldfish swims), with absolutely no pressure or stress to the body as in traditional forms of exercise where the body is normally erect.

    Chi Machine Benefits include muscle pain relief, increase in local blood circulation and oxygen via gentle motion of the entire body, energy increase, mental focus, stable back support alignment (used lying flat), promotes lymph drainage (as documented in Australian clinical trials), internal massage, physical and mental release from tension, fatigue and stress, the promotion of deeper, improved breathing, balance of the autonomic nervous system and relaxation. When the machine stops, a unique rush of Chi energy is felt from head to toe.
