This week I wanted to dedicate our blog to our newest affiliates, the awesome British Dragon Boat team. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this hugely popular and ever expanding sport, Dragon boating is a 2000 year old form of rowing originating in China. One boat typically consists of 20 paddlers, 1 drummer or ‘caller’ to keep rhythm and 1 ‘sweep’ or steerer.
The gluteals are everyones favorite muscles these days. Not only is a great booty hugely in vogue (Nicki Minaj - Anaconda) but functionally and theraputically there is more focus on them than ever.

Every now and again most of us will enjoy having a massage; usually it’s the spa-type, that’s nice and relaxing. But what about a sports massage?

Prehab training is great if your considering stepping up your usual exercise regime or taking on a new challenge. It focuses on correcting posture, strengthening muscles and improving flexibility and mobility to prevent injury and help you achieve your goals.
Here at IFC our goal is to keep our clients fit and healthy while helping them towards achieving their personal goals. In order to do this even better than before, we have added Pilate’s classes to our list of services.
IFC's brand new instructor Dipti graduated from London Metropolitan University with a BSc Hons in Sports Therapy and went on to complete her training with The Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute. She has since specialised in sports injury rehabilitative training, Pilates and sports massage. So whether you have an injury you want to put to bed for good, or just want to work on those abs, Pilates could be a great option for you
