Weak muscles needs strengthening
Tight muscles need stretching, this is what I was taught but with new science and techniques on muscles, muscle response,release and recovery this are changing.
Muscles are either in states of
1.Spasm 2. Fibrotic 3. Tight
They need "releasing"
then they can be
otherwise we are just putting them into more a spasm/tense state.
How many years have you been stretching your tight hamstrings?, any better?. Perhaps they need releasing, you may have some sort of pelvic dysfunction going on. No matter how much you stretch them, if their is dysfunction, you need to sort out the dysfunction, release and then work the muscle.
Many of my clients and class participants are already feeling an improvement and benefits of #imovefreely programme,
This type of programme is closing the gap between group exercise instructor and therapists or medical practitioners, which is brilliant. In resent weeks I have started to work more and more with physiotherapists and other medial practitioners than ever before and looking to work with more. Osteopath's, Chiropractors etc.
I just want to say a BIG massive "THANK YOU" to everybody... For your loyal support over yet another fantastic year of fitness, health, nutrition and fatloss. From the balance, co-ordinating, strength and flexibility in the Fitness Pilates classes and the ever growing U3A groups, connecting mind, body & mind-set. To my Kick Ass crew of the early bird BootCamp sessions, who for some, have been committed to getting up 2 or 3 times a week for the last 15 month to start workout sessions at 6.15am, " train insane or remind the same". At that time of the morning the world is still, tranquil and beautiful before the day has started for most people, except for us and the dog walkers but my guys have already done and dusted with their workout sessions and ready to take on their day. My Hampton Lucy crew who have been with me for 11 year +, such commitment, week after week, month after month and year on year, that also goes for my Malthouse Pilates gang..... My Aqua Babes, who I see 3 times a week for the last 3 years, love making them work hard and keep active. Last but not least my Personal coaching clients, some have been with me for 5 years+, moving forward with different challenges that life throws at them, we deal with and move forward, taking small steps at a time and achieve great things with being persistent and consistent.
I wish you and your families a very, merry Christmas and a positive brilliant 2014...The sky's the limit...Dream Big
much love to all..
Before I end
Happy BIG Birthday Wish
I would like to wish another of my booty crew a "BIG" _0 birthday for the 31st December, Happy birthday Toni.., from all of my booty crew, and it 6 rounds before you ask.......

Christmas Greetings Advise.........
Keep hydrated, a minimum of 3 litres of water per day, lets break that down.... 1 pint on rising, 1 pint with your first meal of the day breakfast, 1 to 2 pint between breakfast and lunch, and 1 to 2 pints between lunch and dinner, so your well on your way to being kept hydrated, especially over the Christmas period. Adding a pinch of sea/rock salt to help aid absorption and reducing your visits to the loo, always a bonus.
It's the party season, so sleep is vital and maybe lacking in the weeks ahead.
Take 400-600mg of magnesium and 60mg of zinc with a glass of water about 30-60 minutes before bed.
Head up the wooden hill 10pm , aiming to be asleep by 10.30pm
and look forward to working with you in 2014.
