Editor's comment: working out

You’ll find plenty of inspiration in this issue of Frontline – in fact we hope you always do.

But this time you’ll see some of the many projects members have run during the summer months as part of the CSP’s annual Workout at Work (W@W!) initiative (see pages 8-9 and 20-21). 
 
It’s great to see members taking up the challenge – and giving up their time – to educate and inform others about the value of keeping active in the workplace. A big thank you to all of you who have gone that extra mile.
 
But, as physio staff know, it’s often taking small steps – a walk every lunchtime, or getting off the bus a stop or two early – that starts to brings about long-term change. 
 
Each small step individual members make – through W@W! and other CSP initiatives, such as our involvement in Older People’s Day – helps to promote physiotherapy to commissioners, to other clinicians and their patients.
 
I’m sure you’d like to know that CSP staff – many of whom are not physios – are doing their bit to keep fit too. 
 
A number of us in Bedford Row are sporting pedometers to record our steps. Mine is up to 12,000 after just four days, which can’t be bad, can it? 
 
I’m only sorry I wasn’t wearing it last week while I was on holiday in the Lake District!
