Get Fit With Alex Newsletter September 2016
We have just got back from an amazing holiday and we loved Kefalonia. I hope you have enjoyed the summer break and are looking forward to getting back to class this week.
I am often asked to explain what the benefits of Pilates exercise are. As we start our Autumn Term, here’s a reminder for us all …..
Develops core abdominal strength
Helps to develop a leaner body by lengthening and strengthening muscles
Improves balance, poise, stability and flexibility
Reduces stress and fatigue
Works with the deepest muscles of the body to build strength and control
Improves mind/body awareness
Exercises the muscles without causing pain or risking muscle tear or jarred joints
Teaches you not to strain your muscles, but enjoy the movements as you stretch
Enhances muscle control without causing tension
Relieves pain, stiffness and tension
It is suitable for anyone, regardless of age or fitness
The principles of Pilates can be applied to any movement or activity
It’s now only 3 weeks until our annual 5k Fun Run (or walk), ‘Together for Alzheimer’s’ which will take place on Sunday September 25th at 10am. Please join in if possible as it is suitable for both club runners and family walkers. We will also need help on the day, with marshals, drink stations and time keeping so if you are able to help please let me know. All proceeds will go to The Alzheimer’s Society which is a great charity which is very close to my heart.
Any donations can be made by visiting www.justgiving.com/togetherforalzheimers2016 or send a cheque payable to
