Bad Habits

Bad Habits I have been a sports therapist for over 20 years now. During this time, a lot of theory and technology has changed. One thing that hasn’t is that I get called to action too late. Someone will usually contact me when they have chronic, consistent pain, tried...

The Coronavirus – how staying active can help you!

The Coronavirus panic is, as I write, looking less scary with lock-down being eased.  So what have we learned? Yes, be alert. Listen to the guidance. Think of others. Wash your hands. All good advice but there are so many things we are still unclear about. What...

#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...

Understanding your body during exercise. Working to heart rate.

It is important to understand what's happening to your body when you exercise and to be able to measure your effort levels. As you exercise, the blood in your body moves towards the muscles that you are using. This is why it is said don't train just after a meal. When...

Save our NHS!

You can speak to any doctor, nurse or health care worker in the NHS and they will all tell you the same thing - the NHS is struggling and something needs to be done. Every doctor and nurse that I know works longer hours than they get paid for and deals with cutbacks...

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...

WHO SAYS AGE SHOULD SLOW YOU DOWN?

WHAT IS MolyFit?

Exercise for the over 65’s.

MolyFit is simply exercise to help you maintain mobility, staying as pain free as possible. My message is simple: Sit less and move more.

WHY DO I NEED MolyFit?

As we get older, our bodies slow down and weaken. Problems occur which cause bad habits that can lead to injury and ill health.

This is why exercise becomes even more important with age, to stop these problems building and stay fit and active.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

Whether you choose one of my easy to read books or my FREE online 28 day video exercise plans (and extensive video library), I will show you that just a few minutes of exercise a day will make all the difference. With a little consistency and effort, I will build a better you.
