Without doubt the dreariest month of the year. Not helped by the fact that everyone in the office is droning on about gym schedules and organic eating.
A holistic approach to health is the only way to go these days. It's not good enough just to get skinny; you've got to get healthy, too (so, yes, that cocaine and sex diet is out, then). We at UJ generally feel the walk to the pub, and stumble from the taxi home, is sufficient exercise - especially us ladies who are usually in high heels - but we are coming to recognise that we might need to take care of our bodies, before they, ah, take care of us Godfather-style.
A new Pilates studio, Kinesis Studios does just that. The Notting Hill-based establishment, offers Pilates, Gyrotonic, Vibrogym, Sports Massage and osteopathy all under the same roof.
Worried about your posture? Have a consultation with the osteopath before the trainer sets you a specific programme. With a combination of private, group and duet (that's you and a buddy) sessions - and by also combining Pilates with Gyrotonic, and Vibrogym technology - you'll not only get fitter faster, you feel better, too.
Which is why I've signed myself up. Watch this space.
