A few years back,
long before I opened Defined Fitness.
I used to play a decent amount of 5aside every week.
Usually on average 2-3 evenings, loved it.
Only it’s tougher now with being in the gym most evenings,
training the lads.
I do well to get 1 in a week.
But back then, when I was in full flow
there was one bad patch in particular that I went through.
I kept picking up niggely injuries in my knee.
It was holding me back so it got seriously frustrating!
Took all the enjoyment out of it.
So I did all the usual stuff,
bought a support strap for it
and did a tonne of stretches to try loosen it up.
There was little bit of relief but still wasn’t right.
So eventually I had to invest in the help of a professional
and went to see a physio.
Turned out I had an issue with the arches in my feet
I got what the professional call
So went to see foot doctor, aka a pediatrist
(think that’s how spell it)
and ot fitted for orthotic soles.
Within a week of wearing it, I could feel the benefit.
I was back flying around the pitch again,
I wasted weeks trying to “fix” the problem myself,
and got nowhere.
(sure I wasn’t even treating the right body part)
But after getting the proper advice,
I was back up & running in no time.
Because I was given the proper info
I knew exactly what was wrong
and was given a tried & trusted way of fixing it.
And low & behold it fixed my problem.
If you’re a bloke that had big plans at the start of January
to finally lose the belly,
but 7 weeks on it’s not quite going as well as you’d hoped.
Maybe it’s time to get some ‘tried & trusted’ help.
