Afternoon of sport and well being in Burgess Park was enjoyed by those who came.

Fancy a game of football? Why not come and visit our Wellness club every Wednesday afternoon.

Is there anything more relaxing than Yoga in sunshine?

Football training at our fun in the park open day.

Have you tried Tai Chi in the sunshine? Absolutely an experience we all have to try some time on our journey.

Congratulations to Guy Pearson in completing the 2019 Stockholm Marathon!

Saturday 1st June 2019 was the 40th anniversary edition of the ASICS Stockholm Marathon. Stockholm, the Swedish capital, is a beautiful city that offered a relatively gentle marathon course. attracting many runners looking for a personal best at a large event. Guy achieved this goal with a  PB of 03:22:23.  The hundreds of thousands of spectators along the route included fans of Guy from the Sporting Recovery Wellness Centre. 

Thanks to the tremendous efforts of Guy, he managed to collect over a £1000 for the Peckham Dragons Football Team. This will allow the team to join The South London Grassroots Football League.

Stretch your muscle at their limit

Regular attendance will provide structure and social interaction similar to the other team sports.

As well as being a fantastic physical work out, sporting activities like table tennis and badminton are also a great mental work out. You have to plan strategies and decide what spin to put on the ball, whilst trying to stay one step ahead of your opponent and react to the shots they are playing all at the same time. Decisions have to be made in split seconds, this increases concentration levels, short term memory and decision making ability. All this mental exercise boosts hormone levels and keeps the brain young, which can slow the progress of cognitive decline that occurs with ageing. It is also a sport that is good for social bonding, with its friendly but competitive nature, it can be enjoyed at your local club where you can meet with new people and form lasting friendships.

A balanced diet makes your body healthy

Good nutrition is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle, this is even more so when we engage in physical activity. Sporting Recovery lifestyle programme involves good food choices, ensuring you have enough energy to participate, which in turn helps training and aids recovery. Eat a varied and well-balanced diet that supplies the right amount of energy and essential nutrients

It is crucial to get your food and fluid intake right if you want to enjoy a good health, to recover quicker from training sessions and generally enjoy exercise. Protein, fluids, fat, carbohydrates, fruit and vegetables are required for building and repairing your body and plays an important role in how you respond to exercise. 

Water Anyone?

Think About Fluid Differently

Maintaining adequate hydration is essential for good health. Dehydration affects both physical and mental performance – the effects becoming more noticeable as the body gets progressively more dehydrated.

It is important to start each training session well hydrated, take on-board appropriate fluids during training and competition and restore hydration levels as soon as possible afterwards in order to replace the water and salts lost in sweating.

Strive For Five: Add More Fruits And Vegetables To Your Diet

Enjoy your fruits and vegetables

Eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day; fresh, frozen, dried, canned all count, but most of all – enjoy your food.

Fuel up – carbohydrates

Carbohydrates provide energy

No matter what your sport, carbohydrates are vital for the best performance. Exercising muscles rely on carbohydrate as their main source of fuel. The amount you need will depend on your training programme and dietary goals. In general, the more intense the training programme, the more carbohydrate you need to include in your diet. A diet low in carbohydrate can lead to a lack of energy during exercise, early fatigue, loss of concentration and delayed recovery.
