Since lockdown we have been trying our best to plan a way to keep everyone fit and healthy. So, we converted our garden into an outdoor gym where you will have access to weights, squat rack, sled, battle ropes, pull up bar, dip station and much more.
It is also completely private so you don’t need to share your space with anyone. Imagine having a gym space all to yourself in the most beautiful, hygienic settings. And if you are worried about the weather, fear not we have built this all under a gazebo to keep you warm and dry during those rainy days.
Our Floor Barre class at Temple of Strength is a hybrid workout class – combining ballet-inspired moves with elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and strength training.
You will find our Barre classes use classic dance moves such as plies, alongside static stretches. Barre also focuses on high reps of small range movements.
But the real difference between Barre and other workouts are the isometric movements you usually perform – holding your body still while you contract specific muscles, until you shake and feel the burn!
How many times have you said or heard ‘I’m feeling stressed’? And how many times has someone
you know or even your doctor advised you to ‘try meditation’? Meditation and mindfulness seems
to be the go-to remedy that everyone is talking about. The Internet itself is full of success
stories, advice and information about the benefits of meditation. And truth be told, there are
many studies that claim that meditation can reduce stress, improve focus, and in some,
meditation has also been known to assist individuals with suffering with chronic pain.
Yoga v Pilates?. How much do you really know about each one ? and what are the differences ? Aren’t they really the same ? just lots of bending and stretching, all done on a mat ? By the time you finish reading some of those questions will be answered for you.
So, you’ve taken a look at the Temple of Strength timetable, seen the number of Yoga and Pilates classes available in our Penge studio and now you are wondering whether you should try Yoga or Pilates?
How do you decide which one is for you?
Eating the rainbow of different colored fruits and vegetables is a fundamentally healthy way to eat. This isn’t just another fad diet like only eating white food or the grapefruit diet. Our bodies need a variety of vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals to stay healthy, and nature has color coded these for us.
Pack your plate full of colour and boost your daily intake of important, and often overlooked, nutrients.
Colourful foods, which are generally fruits and vegetables, contain many of the vitamins and antioxidants we need – with few calories. Along with maintaining good health, the nutrients in vegetables and fruits work together to protect against cancer, heart disease, vision loss, hypertension and other diseases. Increasing fruits and vegetables in your diet is a great step to improving your health.
