Health and fitness have been an important part of my life since the early 70’s when I started running cross country races at secondary school. I saw it as a way to be different and get away from the normal behaviour of my peers.
Since then I have been constantly intrigued by how keeping active can keep a person well. Today it is common knowledge that this is indeed the case but not so back then. Even though today we know that it is common knowledge that being active does in fact keep you well, it certainly isn’t common practice.
So after working in the fitness industry for over 16 years and seeing that the typical fitness facilities on offer did not fit the purpose of the general public’s needs, myself and Clare decided to found New Healthy Body with a view to looking at total ‘wellness’, both physical and mental, with a holistic approach.
Along with an amazing team we offer a multi-faceted approach to wellness and are able to offer a host of complimentary therapies such as Hypnotherapy, Massage and Reflexology along-side Pilates, Yoga, Physiotherapy, Tai Chi.
We aspire to overcome the barriers and negativity concerned with health and well-being. Focusing on tackling many misconceptions (I’m too old, I’m not fit enough, exercise will increase pain felt from injury / medical condition and I don’t like the gym). Our organisation, New Healthy Body, provides a unique and bespoke approach to physical and mental health.
In today’s society when the pressures of life can sometimes seem overwhelming it is normal practice to prioritise ourselves as least important; looking after our loved ones first. This is a flawed strategy because when our health starts to fail and we cannot do the’ looking after’, everyone suffers not just ourselves.
It’s far easier to stay well than get well!
