By the sounds of it you’re in pretty good shape with not too many things bothering you – which is great! It's most likely one of your biggest concerns is keeping your heart, bones and joints healthy. Keeping all those things in tip top shape will help keep you moving and stay as healthy as possible, for as long as possible.
We’ve got your back, your shoulders, your knees… Keeping moving is one of the most important things you can do for your health and wellbeing. Well, to help you stay on this journey, we have all the solutions you’re looking for under one roof.
World Champion Dancer, qualified Personal Trainer and TV personality Karen Hauer is a leading voice in fitness, wellness and self-care. Karen lives a very active lifestyle but also knows the power of rest for recovery. Her favourite way to stay active during any downtime is by taking long walks with her dogs and her best way to unwind at the end of a long day is to add magnesium salts to the bath before bed!
Karen has partnered with Holland & Barrett to share her knowledge and encourage you to take good care of your joints, bones and muscles.
We’ve put together a 30-day movement calendar, with the help of Karen Hauer and a stamp of approval from The British Society Lifestyle Medicine, just for you! We know what your areas of concern are, so we’ve tailored this plan specifically to help keep your joints, bones and muscles moving in the right way. We’ve included challenges like standing while you read or watch the news, focusing on your posture for the day and doing lunges whilst the kettle boils.
Before starting this challenge, you could book a 15-minute conversation to check in on your joints, bones and muscles.
We’ve got over 150 years of expertise behind us – and we’re continually growing, thanks to specialists like our Digital Health Lead, Fiona Sweny.
Fiona has highlighted lunges as her favourite exercise from the 30-day challenge. She says, "lunges work your glutes and quadriceps but they also rely on the hamstrings, at the back of the thigh. A lunge position requires a bit more balance than a squat, so you may also feel them in your stabilising muscles such as your adductors (inner thigh) and core."
Meet the expert, as a former Army Officer and a qualified physiotherapist, Fiona really knows her stuff when it comes to getting set for more movement. Her career as a physiotherapist includes working for England Rugby and The Royal Ballet School.
