Each week, I make a list of the things that I want to achieve. These are tasks that are realistic and can be done with a little motivation. This week I’m aiming to do muscle strengthening exercises on 5 out of 7 days. This includes, light weights, lunges or squats which help to keep muscles and bones strong and healthy.
We can all do our part by slowing down spread if we practice social distancing. This means even if you’re out doing your exercises or getting the groceries please maintain a distance of 1.5m from each other. You could even turn it into a game like I do, think Temple Run and avoiding the ‘obstacles’. 🏃🏼♀️ Take care and stay healthy 😘
By performing exercise for up to 30 minutes 5 days a week you are helping to reduce your risk of medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and musculoskeletal problems to name a few.
If you’re unsure where to start, taking a brisk walk whilst slowly increasing the distance is considered to be beneficial.
Try to incorporate muscle strengthening exercises such as light weights, lunges or squats as this keeps your muscles and bones strong and healthy.
We are fortunate to have access to free community gym machines with a world class view of the beach. So if you’re passing one by, give it a go. 💪
Take care and stay healthy 😘

“Doc, how do I loose weight? 🤔” Is a question I hear all the time.
With summer just around the corner it’s time to get into shape.
From the Atkins diet to the South Beach diet, there are loads of ways to loose weight.
Many of these diets often cause a quick reduction in weight due to the loss of fluid in the body, rather than fat. The best and safest way to loose weight is with traditional exercise and eating healthy balanced meals.
Exercise can be fun and it’s suggested that you do at least 30 minutes of activity 5 times in a week to get your heart pumping. That could be anything from a brisk walk to kick boxing!
Let’s get fit for summer together 💪
Remember to always seek the advice of your medical doctor before going on any exercise plans. As always, if you have any questions feel free to pop by and see me in clinic.
