#NHSSOS: It’s time to Save OurSelves…and the NHS

When I'm out on my allowed one walk of the day, morning, afternoon or evening, no matter what time it is, there is a smile on my face. How lovely it is to see so many new faces walking past me. Self-isolation has been a challenging affair to say the least, but the...

Who says age should slow you down?

We are all aware that as the years go by, the ageing process begins and our bodies slow down. What I fail to accept is that we should just roll over and let it happen, giving up on the interests and activities that we enjoy. It seems to be cemented in our culture that...

If you are looking to improve your health and fitness as you grow older, take a look at An Even Better You in Later Life. My 8-week exercise course is designed specifically for you. 

As well as making you feel more able to tackle life’s challenges, my aim in writing this book is to help reduce the strain on the health service by tackling common health conditions that affect the over 65s, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, dementia, and some cancers.

In light of the Covid-19 outbreak, the value of staying active to reduce the risk of these underlying health conditions has become even more important.

Using fitness tests and age-appropriate exercises, An Even Better You is the perfect way to boost your mind and body, easing the flatness that we can all experience in isolation.

The book begins with a test routine to gauge your fitness. It then helps you understand your body during exercise by showing you how to work to heart rate and use the rate of perceived exertion. Next, you will look at the difference between health and fitness, and take a closer look at how exercise can help prevent and mitigate common illnesses affecting the over 65s.

Finally, you will embark on an 8-week course that gives you an easy-to-follow way to partake in daily exercise. Each week, you will concentrate on different aspects of your body, using various fitness tests to track your progress.

I designed the 8-week course to increase your fitness and improve your health by exercising every day.

After that, what’s next? Well, the answer is it doesn’t matter, as long as you do something to exercise daily and get the blood pumping round your body, keeping you healthy.

Exercise really is the magic pill. Is it time you took yours?
