If you want the effects of your massage to last, you’ve got to do self-care/exercises in between sessions.

But… how do you know if you’re doing it right?

You can do squats without using your glutes (which leads to serious hamstring, quad, and lower back pain).

You can find 1000 videos on YouTube about foam rolling – 99% of which make it look like you should be torturing your muscles (seriously? can that be right?)

Introducing our newest offering – workshops.

We’re trialling these this December (see below for details) with a goal to make them a regular part of our offering.

Foam Rolling Workshop: 1 December 2018, 15:25-17:00

Location: Leyton Mills Fitness First studio

If you’ve ever avoided your foam roller because it’s:

a) too awkward or
b) hurts too damn much

This workshop is for you.

In 90 minutes, you’ll learn

  • which muscles to foam roll (and which are better to stretch)
  • how to foam roll those muscles & tissues painlessly
  • which positions are best for your body (as it is different depending on your size & the level of muscle tension)

You’ll leave with a written guide summarising the information we covered, and notes on what positions to use to refer to going forward.

Cost: £20 for one person, £30 for 2 (bring a friend and save £5 each)

Registration deadline: 28th November 2018

Note: If you’d like to go to both workshops, you can also do both workshops for £30 – just purchase the 2 ticket option and email us to let us know you want to do both so we can update availability. 

Glute Activation Workshop: 3 December 2018, 19:25-20:55

Location: Angel Fitness First, 361-373 City Rd EC1V 1 LR (yoga studio)

If your glutes have never felt sore after a weight training session (or, never as sore as your quads or your hamstrings) then you probably have a glute activation issue.

In this workshop, you’ll learn

  • what glute activation is & why it’s important
  • to tell whether or not your glutes are kicking in, and
  • a collection of exercises to incorporate into either your pre-cardio warm up (for runners or cyclists) or your weight routine to make sure that you’re actually using your glutes, vs setting yourself up for knee or hamstring injuries.

Registration deadline: 28 November 2018

Cost: £20 per person or two for £30

Why workshops?

If you’ve been to see me in the last year, you know this is something I’ve wanted to offer for a while.

This allows us to:

  • offer a lower cost offer (£15 or £20 for a 90 minute workshop vs £100 for a 90 minute massage session) and
  • helping our clients be better-equipped to take care of themselves

This is our first run – depending on how they go we’d like to offer them more regularly in 2019.

But to do that, we need at least 10 people to sign up for each workshop. 

Should be doable, but we are talking about the beginning of the holiday season here!

If you know anyone who might be interested in joining us, please share it with them, and if you’re interested it would be great to see you there!
