Not quite like anything I've tried before
on 20 November 2011
I am a full time carer at home and have begun to start my day with Stretchworks. If I can, I do the 35 minute workout, but if it's been a disturbed night and I'm pushed for time I do the 10 minute one. Stretching taught muscles and easing a tight back whilst moving to the music, I end up feeling both relaxed and energised at the same time.
The exercises are a really good mix of stretching and strengthening - not quite like anything else I've tried - something like flexibility, muscle toning and relaxation all in one. They are quite gentle and easy to do, and you are encouraged always to go at your own pace. I'm getting stronger and muscle is replacing the bingo wings, which is satisfying. I really like the fact that the people demonstrating with Alison on the DVD are 'real' people - different abilities, shapes and ages - so I don't feel intimidated or that I can't do it.
Stretchworks has been a great discovery for me and a brilliant way to ensure that I can do something to look after my stress levels and keep in shape physically.
I would highly recommend it to anyone.
