Today's lifestyle tends to be very active and sports orientated with a general approach to well-being. However in our strive to have that perfect fitness regime we very often forget the importance of knowledge. Knowledge in the warming up and warming down prior to and after any exercise routine. Without this simplest of tasks, (which if we're completely honest all tend overlook from time to time), our bodies start to experience the signs of wear and tear.

Whatever the reason - after you visit to us we trust you will feel so much better in yourself, a new person, ready to jump the hurdles of life once again.

Even with proper conditioning, equipment and other precautions you may still develop pain from exercise. If so, what you do immediately can prevent the pain from becoming a chronic problem.

If you still have pain after two or three days, you should see your physician.
