January is the month of fresh starts, new training programmes and setting goals!
It is also the month where is dawns on us that we signed up to or a got a place in a big marathon this year!
For runners, training re-starts after the Christmas and new year break. I see a lot of very new and very experienced runners coming in to Physio with niggles after getting back on the road or treadmill. Often one of the causes of ankle, knee hip and lower back pain is a lack of flexibility.
Classes are well-rounded, with modifications given to make postures more accessible for beginners or more challenging for the experienced. You’ll build strength, increase flexibility and there will always be a light-hearted inversion or hand-balance to keep it challenging and fun. This class is specifically tailored for runners so you can expect lots of core exercises, glutes work, stability and proprioception work.
Classes are £15 which includes a free coffee and breakfast! Can’t say fairer than that!

As CrossFit training gets bigger and more popular this side of the pond, people will be ready to question the principles and intensity of the training.
People do get injured, people do push themselves too hard and people do things they probably aren’t ready to do – but that goes for just about every sport out there! Walk in to any gym in the UK and you will see people training badly, even dangerously!
Thinking about trying CrossFit or have been CrossFitting for a while? Chris Spealler, a very experienced CrossFit coach and athlete, put out a nice blog post about this recently. Made me think a bit too!
