We are delighted to welcome Denise Blake – Foot Health Practitioner to our growing team.
Denise trained at the SMAE Institute in Maidenhead qualifying with a Diploma in Foot Health from the Queen Margaret University. Passionate about delivering high quality foot care and knowing the importance of keeping feet healthy, Denise is keen to continue her professional development and is currently studying Dermatology of the foot and Biomechanics.
Denise also has over 20 years’ experience as a registered nurse and continues to work part time for the national health service.
Outside of clinic and the NHS Denise keeps busy with volunteering within School Governance and Girlguiding. Her favourite past time is dog walking, meeting the demands of owning a very energetic spaniel.
When you consider that for each round of golfer the average golfer will swing a golf club 70-100, (excluding practices swings!) the potential for injury is high, particularly if one joint is not functioning as it should! Read these top tips from the British Chiropractic Association and practice the exercise from our short video to help your swing and keep you pain free!
High profile professional golfers suffer from injury, but the amateur player may be more at risk than Rory Mcllroy or Tiger Woods. Poor technique, inadequate stretching prior and post-match plus incorrectly carrying heavy golf bags are the main causes but following a few simple tips can solve the problem.
A healthy back will improve your swing!
The original muesli recipe is a mixture of raw foods developed around the turn of the 20th century by a Swiss physician named Maximilian Oskar Bircher-Benner. Dr. Bircher went against accepted medical practice of thoroughly cooked food being the healthiest to introduce a small bowl full of rolled oats and raw apple before most meals. In modern times, this is now acceptable, but back then he had doctors walking out of his talks to show their disapproval.
Makes one portion of Bircher Muesli.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Soak the oats overnight in water or apple juice! If you forget to soak, they can be left for 15 minutes, but will not taste as creamy! Add the grated apple and chopped nuts, squeeze on the lemon juice and add a dollop of yoghurt.
Experiment with other toppings and mixing other grains with your oats for variety!
As holiday destinations beckon for many, our personal training diaries begin to free up a little. With all our Personal Training diaries full, we have recruited a new trainer to join our team. (More news on this in next months newsletter!). But with clients going away, we have some extra availability over the next 8 weeks.
Why not come in for a complimentary, no obligation personal training session. We can help you create a new program of exercises that will refresh your training at home or your gym.
If you are shy and not wanting to train on your own, bring your partner ora friend along!
Why not get the whole family to join you for some family fitness sessions!
