Sports Massage with Soul

When I find a business with added soul, especially when that business is all about improving your wellbeing, I have to share it with you… I make sure I only pass on products or services that I genuinely use, love and hope will be helpful for those who read my blog.

After a long stint of not treating my body to the hands of a professional, (bad I know and I was DEFINITELY in need of it) I went along to Fibre Tense – an ethical and environmentally conscious company providing sports and massage therapies with a goal to reshape the manual therapy and fitness landscape.

I mean, who doesn’t love the treat of a massage? They’re great for not only some well needed relaxation time but also extremely beneficial for easing those tight muscles, recovering from injury and helping our bodies to work more effectively.

Adam Ilko, founder of Fibre Tense is passionate about active and healthy living. The ethos: Massage, Movement and Motivation – Making real change, represents the idea that your ability to improve your wellness should extend far beyond the manual therapy. Even after you have left the treatment room (floating), Adam and his team have made sure that there is a wealth of information available online through the website and Wellness Blog so that you can benefit from their knowledge and wisdom from the comfort of your own home. My personal fave is the Muscle Map to Stretching…just so handy if you’re in need of a little inspiration or assistance with technique.

“I steadfastly advocate positive action for climate change, renewable energies and saving the environment. I always strive to act on ways to make a positive difference for every creature on our planet and therefore a lifestyle wellness for all” – Adam Ilko

London is such a non stop city and the majority of people here live fast paced, stressful lives. One of the huge advantages as soon as I met Adam, was the time given to me as a client… time to talk before the session (which isn’t taken off your time on the treatment table) and time afterwards to gather yourself instead of being rushed out for the next person to come on in. It really is the small details that make a big difference.

Oh and as well as my muscles feeling incredible when I left, so did my skin…Adam uses coconut oil for his treatments so keeping it natural and healthy!

Female Calisthenics Movement: Media Moment

WH3

2015 really feels like the year of bodyweight training (aka calisthenics), the style of training that I have been involved in and promoting for the past couple of years.

I have seen bodyweight training open up unexplored opportunities for women and men keeping fit, without the need for a gym membership or lots of equipment.. With busy lifestyles, this style of training removes plenty of barriers and for those just starting their fitness journey, it allows them to build confidence, body awareness, and realize their inner bad ass!!

On a personal level, I love the freedom and creativity of training with nothing but my own bodyweight.Whether I am in a park, at my flat or on the go, I can keep fit! I make the world my gym!

It is great to see female calisthenics in the media and I was delighted to appear on Women’s Health as a Female Ambassador for Calisthenics.

Here’s to more women reclaiming their bodies and getting fit and strong bodyweight style, both in 2015 and beyond!
