New Years Resolutions:It’s that time of the year again, time for New Year’s resolutions! A New Year, a fresh start and over one week in and how many of us have already broken our New Years resolutions?The answer is: most of us.
But there’s no shame in it, we’re all in it together. New Year’s resolutions are exactly the wrong way to change our behaviour. It makes no sense to try to quit smoking and lose weight at the same time, instead it is best to set out a couple of targets throughout the year and focus one at a time.

For those of your who have set yourselves a new challenge to begin running, you can get some help from the professionals, my local running club Lucan Harriers AC are starting a Fit 4 Life run program for beginners. Check out their Facebook page for details on how to sign up, programme starts this Monday 13th January. Lucan Harriers Fit 4 Life

If you decide to start a fitness program do not forget to have a regular sports massage with Range of Motion Physical Therapy, to help with muscle soreness and tightness. It is always best to have a treatment before any issues worsen.

I have been using these exercises with clients with great results. Hip Pain due to Poor Hip Mobility
