The Importance Of Posture

The Importance Of Posture


I have recently seen a few clients who have been struggling with some elements of the fitness classes.  I wanted to identify what was causing the difficulty and offer help and advice so that they could get the most from their efforts.

Without exception each person I saw had poor posture.  The article I am posting is long but set out well so you can pick out the paragraphs that might relate to you personally.  We all know posture is important but I think everyone will learn something from this and hopefully be able to make some adjustments and become healthier, fitter and ultimately happier!

Now that you can’t wait to read more, click on the text below for the full article.

Posture ranks right up at the top of the list when you are talking about good health. It is as important as eating right, exercising, getting a good night’s sleep and avoiding potentially harmful substances like alcohol, drugs and tobacco. Good posture is a way of doing things with more energy, less stress and fatigue. Without good posture, you can’t really be physically fit. 


About the Author

Having been involved in fitness all my life but never being competitive, I was fascinated to learn how simple it is to stay in shape without entering the world of the gym fanatic or elite athlete.​ So after 17 years managing the swimming school and taking rowing classes at Newton Abbot Leisure Centre, I decided it was time to do something that would give me an even greater sense of achievement and job satisfaction.

​I studied the mechanics of exercise versus shape and began to understand why so many people who have exercise routines that sometimes seem excessive, never see a change in their shape.

I set up Tessfit which tackles this conundrum and it is a real mix and match offering between nutrition and weight management advice, fitness classes and personal training.

I now work from home and run my classes at Steves Gym in Newton Abbot. It is a great balance and apart from loving my work I now also get to spend valuable time with my family.​.
