So, how’s it going? Are you fed up of the Kale smoothies yet? Have you started scoffing the left-over Christmas chocolates, whilst watching your new Davina DVD? Are you craving the end of that box of red wine which you know is sitting in your kitchen cupboard? If the answer to some (or all of these is a mumbled ‘yes’), then we’ve got a 7 ways that might help you buck the national trend, reboot your 2016 and carry on with those resolutions.
1. Core Health Consultancy
Helen and her team at Core Health Consultancy moved into the Innovation Centre near Treliske last year. They are committed to helping all sorts of people with their holistic health. Ripped Abs might be beyond some of us, but better health is usually within reach. Louise at Core tells me that they have lots of exciting things planned for 2016 and I’m really impressed with their attitude to health and wellbeing. It doesn’t necessarily have to be about running a marathon. Phew!
Watch the video to get a flavour of what they do.
Don’t know your quinoa from your buckwheat groaties? These people might be able to help:
2. Archie Browns
Archie Browns in Kenwyn Street is full to the brim of healthy goodies including indulgences like raw chocolate for those moments when a raw carrot just doesn’t cut it. If you’re wanting to lunch out with friends and yet want to stay healthy, their cafe upstairs will mean guilt-free dining. In fact, Secret Truro cutting its blogging teeth tasting their yummy chocolate and avocado dessert. Ah bless….
Hendra in Lemon Street is also another great place for stocking up on everything from grains to herbal teas. With fantastic skincare ranges and more supplements than you can shake a stick at, Hendra is a really great local resource. They also run a clinic with a podiatrist and a holistic therapist if you’re needing more specialist help.
If you’re looking for foodie advice, then try Qualified Nutritionist Latoyah at Cornwall Nutrition who will assess your needs and suggest a treatment plan. Her facebook page is full of top tips and she’ll even conduct meetings over Skype.
Can’t face cooking healthy meals in the evening? Need a bit of a helping hand in the kitchen? Miss Fighting Fit will deliver deliciously healthy food to your doorstep in Truro. Her mission statement ‘Be Healthy, Be Great’ doesn’t stop with the food, she’s all about challenging us to workout too.
And if it’s running you’re after then how about these suggestions:
6. Move Cornwall
Situated right in the middle of Truro, Move Cornwall is run by physiotherapist, Paul. His aim is to train for safe running. Any form of impact exercise is great for bone density, but running does carry with it the risk of injuries, so why not see Paul and find out how you can minimise these.
Because then you will be able to do the ROC5K in the summer!
Last but definitely not least, the ROC5K which takes place in June (date tbc) is a fantastic opportunity to put all of those good eating practices and the safe holistic training you’ve been doing into really good use. Why not sign up early, get motivated, have fun and support a great local charity which helps adults with learning disabilities. C’mon Truro, I know you’ve got it in you!
