Debbie Saunders Workouts - Sept 2017

Well its nearly the end of summer and I hope you have all had some quality time. I had a fantastic time on Exmoor, lots of walks and lots of good meals. Able to lie in total darkness watching the meteor show while I could hear the sea coming in was very special. 
I enjoyed testing my balance and core control on Kilve beach. Huge pebbles made it very unstable to walk on while having fun searching for fossils.
I was sufficiently inspired to get some superb new sculpting moves for class. Some tough love coming into all the classes recently.

TIME OFF - I have been asked to join British Gymnastics research team and will be attending a meeting Thursday 14th Sept, so there will be no adult fitness classes that day. I am starting the day with Data protection updates. I just hope the coffee is good.

Focus of the month



We are delighted to have been chosen by tesco for the “bags of help” we are hoping to raise enough funds to purchase an air tumble track for all the gymnasts to work on. All the local tesco stores have token boxes, please make sure you pop your token in for the club. help your child have access to more equipment in their classes.
You have all of September and October to collect the tokens
As they say “ every little helps! “
Urinary incontinence is the unintentional passing of urine. It's a common problem thought to affect millions of people.
There are several types of urinary incontinence, including:
  • stress incontinence – when urine leaks out at times when your bladder is under pressure; for example, when you cough or laugh 
  • urge incontinence – when urine leaks as you feel a sudden, intense urge to pass urine, or soon afterwards 
  • overflow incontinence (chronic urinary retention) – when you're unable to fully empty your bladder, which causes frequent leaking 
  • total incontinence – when your bladder can't store any urine at all, which causes you to pass urine constantly or have frequent leaking 
It's also possible to have a mixture of both stress and urge urinary incontinence.
When to seek medical advice
See your GP if you have any type of urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence is a common problem and you shouldn't feel embarrassed talking to them about your symptoms.
This can also be the first step towards finding a way to effectively manage the problem.
Causes of urinary incontinence
Stress incontinence is usually the result of the weakening of or damage to the muscles used to prevent urination, such as the pelvic floor muscles and the urethral sphincter.
Urge incontinence is usually the result of overactivity of the detrusor muscles, which control the bladder.
Overflow incontinence is often caused by an obstruction or blockage to your bladder, which prevents it emptying fully.
Total incontinence may be caused by a problem with the bladder from birth, a spinal injury, or a bladder fistula.
Treating urinary incontinence
Initially, your GP may suggest some simple measures to see if they help improve your symptoms. 
These may include:
  • lifestyle changes – such as losing weight and cutting down on caffeine and alcohol 
  • pelvic floor exercises – exercising your pelvic floor muscles by squeezing them, taught by a specialist  
  • bladder training – where you learn ways to wait longer between needing to urinate and passing urine, guided by a specialist 
Healthy weight
Being obese can increase your risk of developing urinary incontinence. You may therefore be able to lower your risk by maintaining a healthy weight through regular exercise and healthy eating.
Drinking habits
Depending on your particular bladder problem, your GP can advise you about the amount of fluids you should drink.  
If you have urinary incontinence, cut down on alcohol and drinks containing caffeine, such as tea, coffee and cola. These can cause your kidneys to produce more urine and irritate your bladder.
If you have to urinate frequently during the night (nocturia), try drinking less in the hours before you go to bed. However, make sure you still drink enough fluids during the day.
Pelvic floor exercises
Speak to me about pelvic floor exercises, they are easy and very discreet to do. We are going to start putting them in occasional classes.
