Staying active is a vital part of overall good health. It gets the blood moving, keeps our bones and muscles strong, helps us to maintain a healthy weight, and even triggers a release of serotonin – the happy hormone! We’ve divided our exercise videos into four categories: Strength, Endurance, Flexibility and Balance. Are you ready to get started?
These exercises will help to strengthen and tone your muscles using only your own body weight or a simple elasticated band. You’ll find a range of exercises you might recognise such as Push-ups and Planks, and some you might not – how about a Donkey Kick or Russian Twist? Join us today to tone up and feel good.
These tougher exercises really get the blood pumping to help build your stamina – don’t say we didn’t warn you! You can easily build or reduce the intensity of these exercises to suit any fitness level, so everyone is welcome. Perfect for people looking to work on their cardio or lose weight.
These yoga-style exercises gently stretch muscles and build flexibility, which helps to reduce the chance of injury or stiffness from exercise. People experiencing joint and muscle pain, either from an injury, exercise or a chronic condition, will find these exercises useful to loosen muscles and ease stiffness.
Practise your balance with these exercises! Better balance feeds into many of the other exercises, helping you to keep strong and stable, whether you’re practicing your lunges, planks or mountain climbers.
At A.Vogel we’re always promoting a holistic approach to health – herbal remedies are only a small part of it! Alongside supporting good health with herbal remedies, we also think things like diet, relaxation and exercise are vitally important. To complement our healthy eating pages, we’ve created these simple exercise videos that you can do at home, in the gym, or even at your local park.
Although we've made it easier to focus on your goals by splitting the exercises into categories, we would encourage you to explore and try out a few exercises from each, as all of these elements are important for overall fitness.
We’re always updating and adding to these pages, so make sure to check back regularly for new exercises!
Hi, my name is Louise and I am the Get Active Advisor here at A.Vogel. In my spare time I participate in a wide range of activities including climbing, cycling, swimming and running where I have completed numerous 10k races. Whilst doing these activities (as well as a few others!) I have gained experience and skills that I now hope to pass on through my A.Vogel blogs.
