Hello and (almost) Happy New Year! This weeks blog – Just Keep Moving – Part Five.
How has your year been? Have you moved enough? Yep, it’s the last part in my Just Keep Moving blog for December. It’s right around this time that people, myself included, take stock on the year that has gone and decide on some goals for the coming year. It is also around this time that any progress trackers you use will email you with your total statistics for the year.
Granted, 2020 has been a strange year in more ways than just one. From bread makers being the most bought item early on in the first lockdown, to bicycles of any type selling out and having year-long waiting lists along with home gym equipment being sold out in the shops and rocketing in price for second hand equipment. Which tells me something important, that you all ate well and then exercised it off and enjoyed the furloughed freedom to work on your fitness goals and use your time off productively.
So, furlough has ended, and your routine might look very different to how it did during lockdown. But, have you continued to stay active in the same way that you did during lockdown? I can hear you asking how, when you don’t have the same free time. Schedules and routines are important. If you find carving out time to work out, but do not know what to do with it, finding an exercise class could be a good option for you. You will start to make friends with the people you attend classes with, and you might learn a new skill, like dancing. There are lifting classes, Pilates, yoga, Zumba, and amateur sports. Start by looking at a great local gym www.unitedsandc.co.uk as well as www.youtube.com to find tasters of what you might like.
Having trouble getting more movement into your day?
If you are having trouble getting more movement into your day, or aren’t self-motivated, I run one-to-one Personal Training sessions, specialising in getting you away from a sedentary lifestyle and back into regular activity, and remedial training to overcome repetitive injuries and painful movement.
Please email [email protected] if you’d like to enquire about personal training, and if you wish to book a massage if sore muscles are stopping you from being active, book online at www.astralfitness.co.uk .
My prices are increasing on January 1st, however I am offering a locked in price for 1 year if you take out a Massage Membership with me before the end of the year. Check https://astralfitness.co.uk/benefits-of-regular-massage-part-four/ for more details and email me to register your interest.
