We are delighted to announce a new partnership with SimPal.

Resistance training helps men with prostate cancer manage many of the adverse effects caused by treatment. Low volume training is a style of resistance (strength) training that integrates fewer exercise repetitions with heavier resistance (weights). Research has shown that a lower volume at a moderate to-high-intensity exercise programme can be just as effective as a higher volume resistance training in enhancing body composition, functional capacity and muscle strength in the short term.
Aerobic exercise (cardiovascular) such as walking, running, cycling and swimming has been found to have various health benefits for people with Parkinson’s disease. This includes improved physical fitness, reduced motor symptoms as well as reduced incidence of cardiovascular disease, lower mortality, improved bone health and improved health related quality of life. Improvements appear to be greater after training at higher intensities.
Exercise protects against the negative effects of aging in people with MS and provides a protective effect against age-related cognitive decline. Hours sitting per day was shown to add to the negative effects of aging on structural networks.
