Faces of Bodyneed - Meet Richard Charles

Written by Bodyneed Sports Clinic on May 15th, 2017.      0 comments

Richard Faces of Bodyneed
"I'm going back again in 2018 to compete and the most important thing that I will do differently is to relax in the environment. In the cold everything is difficult. Moisture freezes instantly, gear failures are just a part of the race due to the extreme temperatures and on top of that you need to be aware of the clock and to keep moving towards your goal for the day."

Richard Charles is talking ultra running with us - hard events, hard training, mistakes made and some tips if you are thinking about running your first ultra!

A runner's musings: From Instrumental Noise to Superhero Epiphany

Written by Bodyneed Sports Clinic on April 17th, 2017.      0 comments

Natalie Gallant running coach
My brains reaction to running I liken to music of a symphony orchestra. Simultaneously opening with brass, percussion, strings and woodwind I create a gigantic instrumental noise. Multiple bum notes develop into a harmonious melody and the final phase of my masterpiece ends with a magnificent clash of cymbals...

Read on for our first exploration into a runner's mind!

Ruby Faces of bodyneed-286-843

"The best way to land is to NOT put your hand out to take the impact as that’s how many collarbones have been broken. I can say it’s important to avoid landing on your head etc., but sometimes crashes happen so fast you don’t have much control! But putting the hand out is a big rookie no-no!"

Ruby Livingstone, pro cyclist and bodyneed sponsored athlete, shares hot tips on cycling (and crashing!), recovery and more.

"Being a physiotherapist at a World Cup can be very exciting but also very challenging. The last World Cup was in Papua New Guinea and came with its own set of challenges. Not being able to leave the hotel without a police entourage, personal security and a male chaperone!!"  Catherine's story is an awesome insight into the busy and challenging world of elite sports physiotherapy...

Live a life less sedentary and continue your adventures!

We’ve all read that sitting is the new smoking and will send you to an early grave, but what is it we are really talking about here? It’s not just the sitting, but our sedentary lifestyles and what we do all day every day that are the leading cause not only of an increased mortality rate but (worse??) of all those injuries you bring to us....

The surgeon said and I quote "you won't ever run again, and you'll probably not walk properly either” I was with another physio for a year prior to Bodyneed, and I was frustrated by the lack of progress when my brother Ben said "go see Bodyneed they'll sort you out...". Meet Tony Frith; intrepid trail walker, favourite teacher and long term member of the Bodyneed Family .. read his inspiring story through injury and beyond...

Noomi-577

Many of you will know her as the smiling face of Bodyneed, the conjurer of seamless bookings and interactions and the key person who makes all our lives just that much easier. But you may have never had the chance to ask her about her non kiwi background and far, far, far north adventures (and thats a north way past Kerikeri!)... we take the chance to chat about just how cold it gets in Sweden, what its like running with Bears and the pros and cons of life under the Northern Lights....

This month we are profiling Pip Meo who is no stranger to Bodyneed! She regularly features on our blog and facebook as one of our sponsored athletes but we thought we would take the opportunity to get to know Pip in a different light. From favourite workout music to mistakenly wearing her pantyhose as a scarf we think it is well worth a read.

Mindfulness matters – how much of your sport is psychological?

Written by Simone St Clair on July 1st, 2016.      0 comments

Mindfulness may seem like the latest fad, with adult colouring books taking up space in book stores everywhere, mindfulness apps becoming increasingly popular and employers trying to use it as a technique to drive productivity from their staffHowever, the concept of mindfulness is not new nor is it likely to be going anywhere anytime soon, especially as more research is published to support its benefits. Unfortunately, it is not all as easy as buying a colouring in book or downloading the latest meditation app, so what is mindfulness exactly?
