Your fitness, health and wellbeing are the most valuable gifts you can give to yourself, your family and your friends.

Iyconic: Fitness For The Third Age is designed for you and without any preconceptions about your fitness, motivations, goals and aspirations.

We look at you for the individual that you are and not as someone who's part of preordained social group like "the over 60's" or "retired".

You've had own life experiences and history and now most importantly your own reasons for thinking about your fitness.

And this is where Iyconic comes in....We will be your fitness coach, mentor, advisor and your biggest fan!

Achieving, retaining and growing a level of functional fitness that enables you to meet the physical challenges of your everyday life.

Whatever your current level of fitness you can start to make improvements today. Every aspect of your life can improve alongside your fitness...simple everyday tasks like bending down or tackling stairs soon become easier and less of a chore. Your sleep can improve enabling you to face the day in a more positive frame of mind. As your awareness of your fitness and wellbeing increase you can feel a sense of control over your own physicality that will empower you to achieve even more...and so the positive cycle continues.

Using physcial fitness to enhance your quality of life and to maintain and improve your health and wellbeing.

Taking the responsibility for your own fitness will benefit your whole body. Your heart and lungs will be more effective. Your joints will start to feel easier. Your muscles will begin to tone thus enabling you to do more things with greater ease. The hours that you're awake will be more productive and the hours that you sleep will be more restful.

We use a combination of indoor and outdoor training sessions.

Improving your fitness doesn't have to be confined to a gym. Being outdoors throughout the year is a tonic in itself. The outside is the biggest health-club in the world....and it's always open for you. Being able to train outside will add a new and different dimension to your training and enables us to explore a wider range of training methods to get you fitter and healthier in an open and stimulating environment. It's truly our 'Natural Health Service'!

The ways you train with Iyconic

When you train with Iyconic we utilise a mixture of Cardiovascular (CV) and Strength training, which uses your own body-weight, and by combining these two approaches we can improve the effectiveness of your whole body. You can train with us on a one-to-one basis or in small groups and training sessions can be either in a gym environment, outside in the fresh air, or in your own home.

Cardiovascular Training

CV training improves your heart and lungs which in turn feeds positive health benefits to your whole body. An important component of our CV training when done outside will be walking with Nordic walking poles.

Compared to regular walking, Nordic walking (which is also called pole walking) involves applying force to the poles you're holding with each stride, in the same way you see cross-country skiers using their poles. Nordic walking uses more of your entire body with greater intensity and you'll receive fitness-building stimulation that simply isn't present in normal walking and benefits your chest, back, arms, shoulder, abdominals, spinal and other core muscles. Nordic walking can produce a significant increase in your energy consumption when compared to walking without poles.

Strength Training

Strength training is a vital component of your fitness. As we get older both our bones and our muscles loose density and this can cause weakness's and frailty which in turn can lead to bones fracturing or breaking if you're unlucky enough to be involved in a fall or other seemingly innocuous mishaps. This in turn can lead to a loss of what we call functional fitness.

Simply put, functional fitness is an indicator of how easily you can do everyday functions like bending down to retrieve something from the floor, walking up and down stairs, reaching for an item on a high shelf, getting in and out of a car, doing the gardening, and such like.

Being functionally fit enables you to face each day with vigour and positiveness and this is self-perpetuating...the more you do, the more you can do!

We do our strength training using a mixture of free-weights, elasticated bands, TRX suspension straps, and using body-weight exercises that utilise the environment we're training in. Put all together this makes for a effective, varied and fun way of training that is very far removed from the conventional idea of pounding weights in a gym.

The last part of the word satisfaction is the word ACTION.

Your satisfaction is a direct result of the action you take...the two things are indivisible.

You have the ability to take control of your fitness now!

Your first action is to simply get in touch with Martin for a chat...there is absolutely no obligation and nothing to loose but potentially many, many positive things for you to gain.
