RACEREADY FIT­NESS START-TO-FIN­ISH SUP­PORT

MEN’S HEALTH’S JU­NIOR FIT­NESS EDI­TOR, MICHAEL JEN­NINGS, IS TRAIN­ING TO­WARDS A HALF-MARATHON PB WITH THE HELP OF SIM­PLY­HEALTH AND A FULL-BODY ROU­TINE

Men's Health (UK) - - Gym Awards 2018 -

Se­ri­ous run­ning is no longer the pre­serve of stick-thin en­durance ath­letes. Even life­long gym-go­ers are learn­ing that, with its im­pres­sive car­dio­vas­cu­lar ben­e­fits, run­ning can have a pro­found ef­fect on their weightlift­ing rou­tine. Among them is MH’S ju­nior fit­ness edi­tor, Michael Jen­nings. Far from ditch­ing dumb­bells al­to­gether as he trains for the Sim­ply­health Great North Run, he is spend­ing as much time in the gym as pound­ing the streets.

Pre­par­ing for a race is an ef­fec­tive – and fun – way to lift your fit­ness to new heights. And if you train smart, there’s no need to worry about los­ing your hard-earned mus­cles. For run­ning-spe­cific ex­er­cise plans to com­ple­ment your work in the gym, visit: sim­ply­health.co.uk/great-run-part­ner­ship.

Months of run­ning will put a lot of stress on your body, and it’s not un­com­mon to en­counter a few prob­lems along the way. That’s where Sim­ply­health comes in. To keep your train­ing on track, we help to cover the cost of a range of health ser­vices, from sports mas­sage, gait anal­y­sis and over­all health checks to broader ser­vices such as den­tistry and acupunc­ture.

From the tread­mill to the start line, Sim­ply­health is here to help you on ev­ery step of your run­ning jour­ney.

Whether you’re a be­gin­ner train­ing for your first ever race or an ex­pe­ri­enced run­ner with many marathons un­der your belt, the Sim­ply­health Ac­tive plan is de­signed to help you stay fight­ing fit: from the pre-race mas­sage to a body MOT.

SPORTS MAS­SAGE

Ten­sion and tox­ins in your mus­cles can cause you pain. A sports mas­sage re­leases the body’s en­dor­phins, help­ing you with your per­for­mance, and can aid re­cov­ery and pre­vent in­jury.

GAIT ANAL­Y­SIS

The wrong train­ers can lead to a va­ri­ety of in­juries. A podiatrist can help you find the right shoe for you, help­ing you to stay in­juryfree and run to the best of your abil­ity.

BODY MOT

Stay in peak con­di­tion for your run. With the Sim­ply­health Ac­tive plan, you can have a range of tests and ex­am­i­na­tions that will give you a com­plete overview of your well­be­ing and iden­tify com­mon health is­sues.

VISIT SIM­PLY­HEALTH.CO.UK/AC­TIVE FOR MORE IN­FOR­MA­TION ABOUT SIM­PLY­HEALTH AND THE AC­TIVE PLAN. WHETHER YOU’RE TRAIN­ING FOR YOUR FIRST EVENT OR HAVE YOUR EYE ON A MARATHON PB, SIM­PLY­HEALTH WILL BE WITH YOU EV­ERY STEP OF THE WAY. #MYEVERYSTEP
