Exercise Bands

When practising Pilates, you'll need to invest in an exercise bands for maximum comfort.

AT Pilates have recently purchased some of these exercise bands - either 1.5 m or 2 m - they can be cut to your preferred length.

Price per band is £3.00 - £4.00 depending on length.

Strengthen your back

Strengthening your back, together with a strong core, which includes the pelvic floor muscles,will help you enormously in reducing back pain.

Try these exercises:  The Plank, combine the Cat/Cow stretch, Swimming (either on all fours or lying on the stomach), Swan (Cobra stretch) and Rear Deltoid Squeeze (known as the Dart).  Main focus is on engaging the abdominal muscles, lengthening the spine and using the breath correctly!

How active are you?

The Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) Journal (2014) quotes the World Health Organisation as saying that more than 60% of the global population is not sufficiently active. Inactivity is the world's 4th biggest killer!

Being more active reduces the risk of heart disease, including strokes.

Much better then to get out an walk at least! I try to get to at least 10,000 steps per day - that's a Government target. Sometimes I don't reach it, but at least it is an aim! Sometimes I exceed it, particularly if I go Nordic Walking. And don't stay sitting too long!
