Exercise yourself well!!

No 14_Clinic_Pilates equipment_010Would you say you get 5 sets of 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise in over the course of a week? Or failing that 2.5 hours of moderate intensity exercise a week, all in one go perhaps?

If not, apparently you are doing your body a disservice. Our body is constantly undergoing a break-down/repair cycle. The ability of the repair process to function relies on our ability to stimulate it. Stimulating it comes from exercising.

I would like to set you a challenge…Over the next month, build up to exercising 5 times a week. Moderate intensity exercise is a level where you can chat to your friend but only in short sentences due to a small amount of breathlessness. Walking with a purpose is one example of moderate intensity exercise.

The type of exercise that you choose does not have to be specific but Pilates is a another great way to get started. If you’ve been struggling with pain for a while, have had a baby, or are just out of the habit of exercising, Pilates is a great way to get back on the wagon.

If you’re still not sure you could email one of our friendly Physios at and we will answer any questions you might have. Give it a go, you won’t regret it!!
