Training over the festive season

Here is my third (and last) Christmas themed blog. If you missed the first two the are here and here.

Training over the festive season is a big challenge for many. With so much going on it is easy to be distracted.

It is nice to give yourself a bit of slack over this period […]

Reduce stress over the festive season

Today I have a second guest blog for December, this time to help us reduce stress over the festive season. I manage to keep this period quite calm but I think there are a lot of people under a lot of stress. Marjorie is a mindfulness coach and I asked her to give us some […]

Your Winter Holiday Health Check

I have decided as we are getting closer to the festive season I would ask Joyce of Eatlivelovefood to write a guest post to help us through this period. Joyce is a Nutritional Therapist and in this post she is highlighting the importance of a health check up and gives us tips for how we […]

Lower back pain

(Please be aware this advice doesn’t replace medical advice)

One of the most common reasons people come to see me for biomechanics coaching is because they have lower back pain. After I explain to them I don’t treat pain and they are happy with that, we can start working on improving how they move. In […]

Running using the MAF method

More than 2 years ago I was training for the Boston Marathon and made this video together with my coach Matt Warnock of Rebel Coaching about running using the MAF method. When you run you are keeping an eye on keeping your heart rate the same throughout the run. The heart rate in beats […]

Benefits of walking

Last year the BBC did a programme here that effectively dismissed the idea of walking 10,000 steps on the basis that you can get fitter by walking brisker 3 times 10 minutes instead. This is a good way to improve your fitness, but I was disappointed that they totally dismissed walking 10,000 steps out […]

Arthritis and Exercise

(Please note: this article shouldn’t replace advice given by a medical professional)

According to Volkgezondheidenzorg.info, 7.5% of men and 13.1% of women between 40 and 44 had been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2017 and the figures for osteoarthritis (artose in Dutch) are 11.7% of men and 15.6% of women. The NHS website defines arthritis […]

Exercise and stress relief

You know it yourself, you do a workout and the rest of the day you are on a high and are so glad you did it.

We need stress in our lives to stimulate action otherwise we would never get anything done but when it becomes too much it can influence our health in a […]

Tight sciatic nerve

One of the areas of the body we look at during a biomechanics screening is the sciatic nerve. I would say about 80% of the clients I have worked with don’t know what the sciatic nerve is.Therefore thought it would be a good subject to write about it.

The sciatic nerve runs down the back […]

Thoughts on pain

A few years ago I had a client who had been previously diagnosed with knee pain. There were some patterns I noticed about her that demonstrated that it isn’t only tissue damage that create pain. There are also other factors that contribute to the pain. In her case there would be two contrasting categories […]
