5 ways to maintain your health and fitness routine over the Christmas period

With the summer having been and gone, and autumn in full swing, it can only mean one thing: Christmas is coming! Everybody loves the festive season, but unfortunately it can result in a lot of overindulgence that throws us off our health and fitness regimes and leaves us feeling groggy and sluggish.

Christmas Exercise Voucher

This time of the year I am frequently approached by people with regard to exercising and buying a training package for themselves, friends, family, colleagues for Christmas and the start of the new year. This is a great incentive to kick start a more healthy and active lifestyle and start to the new year as we mean to go on. I am always delighted to cater a training package to each person’s individual needs and requirements.
