Typically December is a month for reflection on the year past. You also create ideas or resolutions for the coming 12 months. Lifestyle changes such as improving physical fitness, is one of the most common New Year’s resolution. Your new year’s resolutions might be short lived, but we want to change that. How can you make a life-long change this year rather than falling off the fitness wagon mid-February. We here at Ballsbridge Physiotherapy Clinic would like to help.
In a previous blog, ‘Am I exercising enough’ I laid out the recommended physical activity to maintain a healthy lifestyle and prevent disease. Have a read of this blog, then you will be able to see if you are meeting the current guidelines or is there room for improvement.
Here at Ballsbridge Physiotherapy Clinic we offer a range of exercises class or even 1-1 session. Exercise classes are a great environment to meet people, gain group motivation and create a sense of community. On the other hand, a 1-1 session with one of our trained physiotherapist might suit you better, if you need additional support or guidance and boosting confidence levels. We cater for all levels of physical ability here and encourage physical activity for all.
We offer a range of Pilates classes here in the clinic. This ranges from beginners, intermediate and advanced, to suit all levels of experience. Pilates is a great way to improve stability, strength, postural and flexibility. We have noticed that office workers find our Pilates classes particularly beneficial in counteracting the stress prolonged sitting may have on their bodies. Moreover, if balance and strength are an issue, our Pilates class is a great way at addressing these.
Healthy Bones is a class we offer every Monday from 12.15-13.15pm. This class is aims to improve bone density for individuals with osteopenia or osteoporosis. Posture re-education, stability, strength and mobility exercises are all key aspects of this fun and challenging class.
We also have a new class Stronger for Longer, that has been very popular since it started in September. Similar to Healthy bones, this class aims to improve muscle strength and challenges balance and co-ordination. The Stronger for Longer class is twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11.00am. All abilities are welcome.
Here at Ballsbridge Physiotherapy Clinic we aim to promote exercise for all, including all age brackets and physical abilities. Exercise has so many health benefits not only physically but also mentally, and we would like to share this with you. Starting the New Year in one of our exercise classes may be the boost you need to get started on your health and wellbeing journey. If you are interested in any of our Pilates or exercise classes please contact the clinic today, as spaces for January are already filling up already!
