The importance of keeping physically fit – Adam Turner

During these difficult times it is more important than ever to keep ourselves physically fit. Most of us have more time on our hands than we have had in years. Therefore, there is really no excuse not to devote some of that free time towards exercise. This can be in the form of strength training, aerobic training, flexibility/mobility training, etc.

The Gym Team have been creating videos of home workouts or workouts that can be done outside (at least 2m away from someone else!). These can be accessed on the Roehampton Club YouTube page.

Another way of structuring a home workout is to pick a total number of repetitions and keep doing exercises until you hit that number. For example, I will normally commit to 500 repetitions when I am doing a home strength workout. I will normally do 100 repetitions per exercise so my workout will consist of five exercises. I have included an example below:

– Squats: 100 reps total (20 reps x 5)
– Split squats: 50 reps each side total (10 reps each side x 5)
– Leg raises: 100 reps total (20 reps x 5)
– Crunches: 100 reps total (20 reps x 5)
– Press ups: 100 reps total (20 reps x 5)

A workout like this would usually take 30-40 minutes including a warm up and cool down. Of course, if you are not training regularly then a 200/300 rep workout might be more appropriate. That said, if this is not challenging enough then you can easily increase the number of repetitions and exercises.

If you would like any advice on how to structure your workouts then please feel free to get in contact with me. My email is

Take care of yourselves,
Adam Turner

Anxiety and SARS-CoV-2 – Jerome Sawyer

During this period of ‘global panic’ it can feel like just the moment your anxiety was waiting for to spin out of control. Remember that it’s okay to feel what you’re feeling, but there are healthy ways to process your anxiety, and you can always reach out for support if it is needed.

Food for thought

Your adrenal glands produce the main stress response hormones adrenaline, noradrenalin and cortisol. You can support the function of your adrenal glands by making sure you consume key nutrients such as Vitamin C and Magnesium. Vitamin C is common in most fresh fruit and vegetables.

When stressed, magnesium levels can become extremely depleted. Deficiency symptoms often include but are not limited to fatigue, anxiety insomnia and a predisposition to stress. Please include dark green leafy veg, wholegrains, nuts and seeds into your diet to support adequate levels of magnesium to benefit both your mental and physical wellbeing.

Ways to relax despite potential worries …

Yoga. Not a yoga person? No need to start now unless you’d like to try it. Sometimes trying new things and discovering new activities you can benefit from and enjoy can be a welcome, healthy distraction.

Meditation. Regular meditation is very calming. Many apps teach simple forms of meditation, such as Headspace or Calm.

Controlled breathing. One simple technique is called square breathing. Visualise your breath travelling along a square. As you follow the instructions to inhale, hold your breath, or exhale, count slowly to three on each side. Try it now. Inhale up the first side of the square. Slowly count one, two, three. Hold your breath across the top. One, two, three. Exhale down the other side of the square. One, two, three. Then hold your breath across the bottom. One, two, three. After a few minutes of this you should be feeling calmer and more centred.

There are other ways you like to relax, as well. Such as reading a book or watching an entertaining television programme.

♥ Please stay in contact with your friends and loved ones. As regular contact can help you and help them.

♥ Listen to and research credible sources to help navigate the path ahead. Take sensible steps that can help you to get your bearings, practice good hygiene, use calming strategies that work for you and also try something new. Making healthy and reasonable choices about what to do and what not to do this can make a big difference in being able to stay as safe and as well as possible.

♥ Good-quality sleep makes a big difference to how we feel mentally and physically, so it is important to make sure you get enough.

♥ Try to maintain regular sleeping patterns and keep up good sleep hygiene practices – like avoiding screens before bed, creating a restful environment and cutting back on caffeine.
