Sad but true. Summer is over again and it seems each year is passing by quicker. Here we have the autumn: the days are getting shorter, the Sun comes up later and the evenings are becoming darker earlier which will have an effect on our bodies, mood and motivation.
The choice of topic this week may surprise you but I couldn’t walk pass the fact that I see many people working their arse off when running outdoors or attending our Callanan FitClub sessions, but when it comes to choosing the right footwear they seem to forget that their feet and ankles are under a lot of demand during exercise and if not supported by the right shoes they risk injuries.
How many times in the past six months did you lose your balance in everyday activities, exercising or performing in your chosen sport? How often do you consciously work on your balance and stability to ensure your body can cope in any situation in any given time when it needs to move quickly to avoid an accident or ensure the safety of yourself or your loved ones?
I had the pleasure of training the kinvara hurling team recently and nothing pleases me more than kicking these lads’ arse in the gym
To be fair they did well but the amount of sweat that was pouring out of them was insane.. it was a warm evening but some of the lads looked like they had been caught in a monsoon
I came across an Instagram post from Kayla Itsines the other day which inspired the topic of this blog post. If I asked 10 women from our Callanan Fitclub members, most of them will say they have stretch marks of some kind if not all, even if they aren’t mums yet. That would probably apply to the rest of Galway’s population. Why are we talking about them?
I am discussing the topic because many of our clients are asking about it. Sure, with the latest fitness trends many women’s main goal is to get a nice shaped and toned, sometimes even big bum. Whilst I don’t think going into extremes is necessarily healthy but focusing on building a strong buttock should be part of a balanced health and fitness lifestyle.
