Have you been looking for hotels in Northamptonshire with spa facilities? Look no further. Better health is a priority for many people in the new year, especially when resolutions have been made and targets have been set. In our latest blog, we share upcoming health trends you’ll want to be aware of in 2019.
Rowing is the new Spinning
Do you gravitate towards the bike when you visit the gym? When was the last time you used the rowing machine? Many people tend to use rowing as a warm-up or warm-down exercise, but we can safely say that 2019 is the year spinning will take a back seat in workout regimens. This ever-popular workout saw people flock to the cycles, but in fact more and more gym attendees are opting to row their way to health.
Instead of enduring gruelling spin classes, rowing offers an all over calorie burning session that has a plethora of benefits for both your heart rate and for toning. Don’t forget to enquire about our gym membership or classes – they’re the perfect way to keep your 2019 fitness goals on track.
Last year was all about separating macronutrients (fat, protein and carbohydrates) away from vitamins and minerals (micronutrients). Those who have mastered this dietary skill, will be instead focussing their attention on mesonutrients in 2019.
Meso hails from the Greek language and means ‘inside’; these nutrients have precious active compounds that when ingested have benefits for your body such as anti-inflammation and anti-ageing. Examples of which are curcumin (from turmeric) and EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), a tannin. You can find tannin in green tea which is renowned worldwide for its antioxidant benefits. We recommend regular cups of green tea to help your metabolism and to cleanse the system.
Self-care should be a priority whatever the year, but in recent months great emphasis has been (rightly) placed on adequate self-care for us all. Whether you work full-time, are retired, look after your children or find yourself with unexpected stress, self-care can be as easy as a long soak in the bath, a relaxing getaway or a regular spa treatment. Our Spa Therapists recommend our Signature Stableyard Spa Treatment – devised to renew, rejuvenate and relax, this exotic frangipani experience includes a wrap, essential oils and an expert massage to truly give you the time you need. You can see the full list of treatments at our Northamptonshire spa here.
