Video May 2018 – availability – Men Only Pilates Classes in South Dublin, Ireland

A new set of Mens Pilates, Core Strength and Flexibility Classes starts during the week of Monday 7th of May and Monday 14th of May 2018 in the greater South Dublin area, Dublin 14, Dublin 16 and Dublin 18.

The classes and courses run in eight-week blocks. There is generally a maximum of 8-10 participants per class, meaning the classes are rather small and this allows me to offer a good degree of individual attention. Benefit from 16 years teaching experience, I worked with hundreds of individuals of all ages mid/late teens to individuals in their 90s, busy mums, business owners, desk-bound office workers, retired people, various groups and individuals from sports like rugby, GAA, soccer, tennis, long-distance running and golf.

Monday morning 10am Outdoor Toning, Fitness & Weight-Loss Class *postponed* to 12th March due to snow – Leopardstown Heights Sandyford


A quick note to let you know that my Monday Morning – Park / Outdoor Fitness class in Leopardstown Heights (on the MUGA, Multi Usage Games Area – Basketball Court) is postponed by a week to Monday 12th March 2018 due to snow and ice in Dublin 18, D18.

I took the picture/video above earlier on this evening. You can see the basketball court, MUGA on the left, completely covered in snow – as most of the green in the Leopardstown Heights housing estate. It’s better to be on the safe side and continue with the outdoor and park fitness and exercise classes next week.

A Happy, Successful and Healthy New Year 2017 and thoughts on a Year Review

I wish you and yours – “a Happy, Successful and Healthy New Year – 2017”.

We are just back from a brief wintery holiday break in the sunny, yet freezing south west Germany, the Black Forrest – Baden Wuerrtemberg (think Black Forrest Gateau yum, Cuckoo Clocks, Mercedes, Porsche, Lake Constance etc.), see pictures below.

A happy successful and health 2017 from Martin Luschin in South Dublin Ireland, Your Health Habit Coach planning ahead for 20172016 was a very eventful year for myself and those around me, filled with varied memories of excitement, happiness, fulfillment, but also frustrating and sad moments, as some of those who were close to us passed away. During the break I took time out to write a year review (in mind-map format), assessed what happened, reflected, remembered exciting, relaxing, sad, emotional, breathtaking and happy moments.

 

 

 

 

 

winter impression Black Forrest Bad Duerrheim Baden Wuerrtemberg December 2016 January 2017 winter impression Black Forrest Bad Duerrheim Baden Wuerrtemberg December 2016 January 2017 winter impression Black Forrest Bad Duerrheim Baden Wuerrtemberg December 2016 January 2017 winter impression Black Forrest Bad Duerrheim Baden Wuerrtemberg December 2016 January 2017winter impression Black Forrest Bad Duerrheim Baden Wuerrtemberg December 2016 January 2017
And started to plan ahead for 2017,
where I envisage further changes to my private and work life e.g. (1) regular time out with my partner, friends and loved ones, (2) more deep and focused work enabling me to create some of the following, (3) online video fitness and nutrition courses, (4) a regular in person nutrition course in Mount Merrion Parish Centre, Stillorgan, (4) other online fitness and health projects, (5) reading more an reading varied, (6) following the notion of “Less is More” (less distraction – more focus, less in person courses – more (some) online courses, less drifting – more clarity etc.).

Give a Year Review a go, jot down what happened and reflect on the good and not so good. You might start with things that happened at certain location, things that are related to certain individuals or groups of people or your could structure it month by month. See what works for you. I prefer a mind-map format, as it allows the mind to quickly jump from one thought to another thought and you are not forced into the structure of grammar and sentences etc. (which often slows down the our thinking) you can kind of let your mind free-wheel.

Schedule three or four 30-60min blocks to do your 2016 *Review. it really frees the mind and will then allow you to look ahead and plan 2017 to make it a successful, happy and healthy year.

Try it out and make 2017 a year to remember !

Video 14 – Warm-Up Exercise Roll-Down with a Push-Up

>> View a list of all videos. <<

Video No 14 Warm-Up Exercise Roll Down Push Up Martin Luschin South Dublin Ireland Personal Training Nutrition Health Coachingin Video No. 14 you are going to learn a very simple, yet effictive “Warm-Up Exercise”. It’s easy to do and I will show you a few different variations in the video (from Beginners to Intermediate Level).
The “Roll-Down with a Push-Up” combines back / spine mobilization and looseing with a upper-body warm-up (shoulders, chest and arms) plus adds a stretch for your hamstrings and calves (back of your legs) as well.

You don’t even need a mat, just a bit of space.

This exercise can simply be added to other warm-up exercises like neck, back, shoulder and spine mobillization moves, a bit of foam-rollering, some dynamic stretching etc..

Always do a 8-10 mintue warm-up routine, as this prepares the body for your main workout and aim to make the warm-up exercises specific to the exercises you plan to do.

.
Enjoy, let me know how you get on and send me an e-mail with questions you have in relation to this exercise.

Video 12 – 10min Neck, Back, Shoulder Loosening & Stretching Routine

>> View a list of all videos. <<

In Video No. 12 I’m showing you a 10min “Neck, Back and Shoulder Stretching” Routine. This includes various standing and seated stretches. You could do the program e.g.

  1. first thing in the morning after waking up, to loosen your body after a good nights rest.
  2. as a office desk mid-morning or lunchtime break
  3. as a evening routine after work or a long day at the desk to stretch those tight neck, back and shoulder muscles.
  4. maybe when driving long-distances as a mini break
  5. what else could you use this routine for …… ? Let me know.


The stretches and exercises are very simple and can be done anywhere. You don’t need any special equipment or props, nor do you need to change clothing – simple – quick and easy !!!

You will see a few seated stretches being done in a office chair, just to give you some ideas what can be done to stretch your back, spine and shoulder area and reduce tension in that area, as it gets tight for most of us when sitting for hours on a desk.

Aim to do some or all of these exercises at least once a day, ideally twice a day. Maybe get your work colleagues to join in and do it as a team activity or break. Taking a few minutes out will give you a mental break and boost your alertness and productivity.

I generally recommend to
(1) set a fixed time at which you do this stretching program e.g. mid morning 10am or after your lunch break at 1.30pm. The main goal is to establish a routine, something you do at set times and days. Ultimately you want to do this without having to think about it, without any conscious effort – your posture will thank you.
(2)  Schedule it in your diary at the beginning of the week, it only takes 10min.
(3) Get your work colleagues to join and make is team activity or do it together with you partner or spouse.
(4) ask yourselfWhat is different after doing this stretching routine?” – “Which body-part loosened up or is more relaxed after the stretches?” – “What are the benefits of doing this?”

Enjoy, let me know how you get on and send me an e-mail with your questions.
