Easy fitness advice from physios

At this time of year, as people are feeling the effects of festive overindulgence, the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) is encouraging a focus on fitness when it comes to making New Year resolutions.

The CSP’s Lazy Exercise Guide for Busy People is ideal for anyone who needs a bit of inspiration towards achieving a more physically active lifestyle. It is designed to help individuals snatch a few moments from their hectic schedules and make easy exercises part of a daily routine.

The guide gives quirky tips on how to incorporate simple exercise into everyday activities, such as marching on the spot while brushing your teeth and effective exercises that can be performed whilst sitting down. The leaflet is available from the CSP (see below) or online at www.csp.org.uk/leaflets.

Commenting on the guide, CSP Chair of Council Sarah Bazin says: ‘Getting in shape takes time, so it’s important that people set themselves realistic goals. As people start thinking about New Year resolutions, it helps to have reassurance that you can introduce exercise to your life with much less effort than you may think.

‘Going to the gym isn’t for everyone and membership can be costly. This guide gives advice on how introducing activity into daily routines can make a world of difference, without breaking the bank and without you having to embark on a whole new lifestyle.’

Sarah adds: 'The leaflet is not intended to replace regular workouts, but offers general advice for people who want to take more exercise but don't know where to start. It could be the breakthrough that you need, helping you to make subtle lifestyle changes that could improve health, wellbeing, posture and confidence.'
