Inspired by the Olympic games and looking for your ideal sport? If this is you then you need to try this questionnaire which is surprisingly accurate. Don't forget to let us know how you get on.
The main flaw is that it doesn't cover sports for anyone with a disability so if you need to know more about disabled sports then you can check out the Northants Federation of Disability Sport website here http://bit.ly/NorthantsDisabilitySport
Before embarking on your route to health and fitness don't forget you can book yourself in for one of our FREE 15 minute assessments to make sure everything is in full working order ;-)

We recently had conversations with some of our clients about muscle cramps. what causes them and what you can do about them. As a result we thought that our blog on the subject was worth reposting so here it is. Have a look and if you still have any questions get in touch. Feel free to share with anyone you know that has complained about the same problems :D http://bit.ly/Whataremusclecramps

If you are one of the many people that includes sit-ups as part of your exercise routine you will be very interested in this article. The US Army has found out that sit-ups are really not good for you after all and is phasing them out for safer alternatives. https://lnkd.in/eFc4Rvk

As well as ‘fixing’ your aches and pains when they occur, we are equally keen on preventing those problems developing in the first place. We have just had an article published and thought that we would share it with you. It covers ways to avoid the achy shoulders, stiff necks and low back issues that can happen when you spend way too much time at your desk. Have a look and let us know if you have any questions or would like to book a FREE assessment to start resolving those work-related problems.

Here is a summary of the fitness industry and how it has become part of the problem rather than provider of a solution (don't be put off by the images they are there to reinforce a point). As the industry has such an influence over our lives and how we define health in general would be interested to know if you think the author makes a valid point?

We regularly see office workers with neck and shoulder problems related to hours spent behind a desk and a question that is being asked more frequently is whether a standing desk would help. We will provide a more comprehensive answer in an upcoming blog, but this short article covers the topic reasonably well. As always things are more complicated so if you have any questions or need any additional information please let us know.

We all like to have a good stretch especially after a hard day at work, but do you know which muscles you are actually stretching? If not this illustrated guide should help.
The main thing to remember is that you might experience some discomfort while stretching but it should not be painful. If it hurts you are either overstretching or doing it wrong!
If you have any questions or need some advice on what stretching you should or should not be doing let us know.
