Feel Amazing Every Day – Not Just For New Year


That’s what our clients tell us – they feel amazing! They have never felt so strong, toned, fi t and well. We have been called a haven, a retreat, an escape from the stresses of daily life. And they look forward to coming to class once or twice a week.


Why is this when so many people start the New Year with the best intentions for a healthy start after Christmas excesses, envisaging a new fi tness regime to a healthier lifestyle but yet never manage to stick to a regular exercise regime?


Create is a boutique studio in Raynes Park, Wimbledon offering expertise and specialist knowledge of Pilates, Yoga, Surgery and Injury Rehabilitation and Massage Therapy.


Our high standards of customer care and technical profi ciency give clients a unique opportunity to assess quality instruction, exercise programme design and the ability to achieve


goals. We empower our clients to create the healthy lifestyle they have been dreaming of.


Our selection of over 50


dynamic pilates, reformer pilates and yoga classes give people variety and choice – no class is ever the same. Clients feel motivated to attend regularly,


experiencing a new class every week.


And it’s good to know the journey to your fi tness goal is not a lonely one. Our small group classes of just eight people on the mat and 3 on the reformer can give you the support and encouragement you need to keep going. Our teachers know everyone by name and we will always be ready with the motivation and drive to excel.


We invite you to explore your potential in 2015 and beyond by calling for a tour of our gorgeous studio and an initial assessment with one of our experienced teachers. Start to feel amazing today!

Effective Detoxification - The Easy Way


Detox Debunked - Expert Nutritional Therapist Melody Mackeown makes Detox Bearable


Melody Mackeown


Common dietary excesses over Christmas and the New Year such as: too much alcohol, sweet treats and larger than normal portion sizes, will probably leave you feeling lethargic, bloated and headachy.


You probably think of detoxifi cation programmes as regimes where you have to give up everything you like ‘caffeine, alcohol, red meat, cheese and desserts’ and are left with ‘brown rice and vegetables’ or a ‘water or juice fast.’


However, this doesn’t have to be the case, especially where your lifestyle would make this diffi cult, if for example you have to wine and dine clients.


While alcohol is accepted as being toxic to the


liver and is generally forbidden in any detox plan, it doesn’t have to be that way. Some types of alcohol are relatively pure, such as gin and vodka and have fewer pollutant


substances (congeners) in them. If you would fi nd it hard to completely give up alcohol, a good way to detox without being a party pooper, would be to have one or two vodka oranges or if you prefer a long gin and tonic.


Another good way to stick to a detox programme, would be to carry a stash of nuts and/or seeds with you. Contrary to popular belief, they do not contribute to weight gain, which may be one of the reasons you decide to have a detox. This is great news as nuts are full of minerals, such as zinc, which is an important mineral to help the liver detox. It also helps you stave off hunger or having low blood sugar, especially in the evening, which can lead you to making poorer food choices and overeating.


I doubt many people would think of sleep as being an important part of a detoxifi cation


programme. However, sleep is vital for both restoration of energy and general health and wellbeing. Sleep-deprived people are generally more stressed and less likely to make healthy food and lifestyle choices, so addressing this area would be key to any successful detox programme.


Of course, there is so much more we can look at for a detox programme, depending on your goal but the above would be a good start. Melody runs a Nutrition Clinic in Putney.
