NeuroBalance Chiropractic Clinic at Cycle Studio

Cycle & Fitness studio is gearing up for summer and as part of our commitment to you and your health we have organized a great deal for you.   Recently, one of our team members went to NeuroBalance Chiropractic clinic for a knee issue and was very happy with the service he received. The Chiropractor sat down with him and discussed his reasons for the consult, and underwent comprehensive tests and an exam to formulate where his key weaknesses were and develop an effective treatment plan for him to eliminate the knee issue.   The service was first rate and the Chiropractors at the practice were all extremely competent. The Chiropractor showed our team member how to best manage an old injury, set up a comprehensive rehab programme and perhaps more importantly (!!) get more out of his sessions on the bike.   We believe that this is the type of practice that we want to have associated with our studio so we spoke to Dr Rachael Veronesi (Prinipal Chiropractor at NeuroBalance Chiropractic) and arranged a deal between her practice and Cycle & Fitness Studio. We agreed on the following deal:   Any member that requires Chiropractic care or would like an assessment done or would like a consult as apart of their training will receive their first consult (valued at $130) for FREE (i.e. no out of pocket expenses for you). The studio has agreed to cover any out of pocket expenses that are incurred by our members for this consult, in order to say “thank-you” to you, and to make sure that you all get the best...
Staying healthy over 50

Staying healthy over 50

Simple tips can help avoid health problems A healthy lifestyle is necessary at any age, but for those over 50, it’s especially important. As you age, your body changes, and your risk for health problems increases. Fortunately, there are three simple things you can do to lead a healthier and happier life. Eat heart-healthy A great way to establish a heart healthy diet is by reducing your sodium intake, which may reduce the risk of high blood pressure. Eat nutrient-dense foods As you age, your body needs fewer calories for energy-but still needs the same amount of nutrients. Make your calories count by eating foods packed with good nutrition such as: fruits and vegetables fresh, canned or frozen. Protein Add some variety to your diet with delicious protein sources such as fish, beans and peas. Get moving Physical activity and regular exercise can decrease the risk of heart disease, stroke, colon cancer, diabetes, and high blood pressure. You should consult your physician or other health care professional before making changes to your diet or exercise plan to determine what is right for your needs.

Health Eating to help avoid heart disease

Health Eating to help avoid heart disease

Too many people suffer from heart disease, particularly when we consider a good diet can prevent most of it. Let’s take a look at some of the things you should do to limit your chances of developing heart disease. Portion control Don’t overload your plate, don’t go for seconds, don’t eat until you are stuffed. A good diet follows the “Eat Well Plate”, with the right portions of the right foods. Go for food high in nutrients and low in calories and you will immediately start to be healthier. Fruit and vegetables A good diet is full of fruit and vegetables as a healthy foods. However, not all of them are good. If you want to avoid heart disease, stay away from: Vegetables that have been fried or baked Putting creamy sauces on your greens Canned fruits in syrup (opt for water or natural juice) Coconuts Frozen fruit with added sugar Whole grains all the way Whole grains is healthy foods have lots of nutrients and fibres that help your body function properly. This means your blood pressure is more regulated, thereby reducing the chances of having heart disease. Stay away from refined grains and be adventurous. Try some barley, couscous or quinoa for a change. Less Fat and Sugar Last but not least, a good diet limits the amount of fat and sugar. Note the word “limit”. You should not stay away from fats and sugars altogether. You are allowed treats, for starters, and not all fats are unhealthy. Go for natural oils like olive or canola and opt for margarine with cholesterol lowering ingredients. The worst fats...
Tip 5 – Be Realistic

Tip 5 – Be Realistic

One of the biggest problems with New Year’s resolutions is they can be extremely impractical. Setting goals is a great idea, but make sure they are realistic and feasible. For example, a goal to lose 12 lbs by Easter is both reasonable and achievable. So is a goal to complete a 15K ride by the end of the month. Conversely, a goal to complete a triathlon by that date is unrealistic and potentially unsafe for newbie cyclists. Think of it as if you were building a house. Start slow (i.e., low intensity and duration), develop a solid foundation of fitness and then build upon that foundation as your fitness improves. Good luck with all your New Year Health & Fitness resolutions from all the team at Cycle Studio Ps if you need any help we are always here…   image courtesy of © Rolffimages | Dreamstime Stock...
Tip 4 – Take it easy

Tip 4 – Take it easy

Think of your resolution as a lifelong commitment to a healthier lifestyle. You are much more likely to be successful if you take it easy at the beginning. For instance, you may see people exercising at a very high intensity, but you should start with low-to-moderate intensity workouts. You may know people who train six days a week, but it’s fine to start with three. You may see people engage in a diverse array of physical activities, but a 15-minute walk three days a week is a great place to begin.  Go at your pace and build up and remember the hare and tortoise… image courtesy of © Liz Van Steenburgh | Dreamstime Stock...
