The ART of
exercise is the closest you can get to the ‘Fountain of Youth’ and ‘Self Mastery’ without injury, frustration and failure.”
When The Times newspaper journalist Robert Crampton wrote about the boxer Darren Barker, he said: ‘If Barker really has discovered the holy grail of physical
conditioning, stamina and strength without having to run or lift weights, he will be a very popular man indeed.’
Darren adopted the ART
exercise programme – 3 interchangeable 30-minute mind and body exercise programs – and went on to become World Middleweight Boxing Champion, saying:
made me into a world champion"
Bad habits mean both men and women do the same exercise they were doing in their early years because like Barker its what they know or have seen others doing.
But it is not necessarily right for their bodies that have reached their physical peak causing them to become more injury prone, lose muscle mass and for the
average person get heavier at the same time.
mental and physical awareness into a unique method of training without the customary pain and accompanying boredom. It encompasses a trio of fitness staples: aerobics,
strength training, and flexibility. To raise your heart rate, increases muscle endurance and create muscle suppleness.
Fundamentally the purpose of the AR
T of exercise is about Self-Mastery as opposed to a preoccupation with Self-Appearance.
AS WE AGE, the workout choices we make in our 20s and 30s will have an impact on our lives when enter OAP status. Young adulthood typically covers the period
from 20-35 years of age, when both biological function and physical performance reach their peak. Middle-age (35-45 years), is when physical activity usually
slows, with a 5-10 kg accumulation of body fat. During later middle-age (45-65 years), women reach the menopause, and men also substantially reduce their output
of sex hormones. In early old age (65-75 years), the decline in physical condition continues and may accelerate. By middle old age (75-85 years), many people have
developed some physical disability, and in the final stage (very old age, over 85 years) they become totally dependent on others.
Muscle Strength - AQUA
Strength peaks around 25 years of age, plateaus through 35 or 40 years of age, and then shows an accelerating decline, with 25% loss of peak force by the age of
65 years. Muscle strength can be greatly improved with resisted AQUA training at any age. The wasting of lean tissue can be avoided by regular water resistance
exercise making it possible that muscle strength and flexibility of a fit 65-year-old can out-perform a sedentary 25-year-old with the right exercise decisions.
Flexibility - YOGA
The elasticity of tendons, ligaments and joint capsules decrease, adults lose some 8-10 cm of lower-back and hip flexibility. Flexibility can be conserved or
improved with a regular YOGA practice that takes the main joints through their full range of motion each day. If muscle weakness and arthritis are already advanced,
exercise is best carried out in warm water. Also the waters buoyancy supports body-weight, and warmth increases the immediate flexibility of the joints.
Bone Structure - REBOUNDER
Rebounding is a great load-bearing exercise that can halt and sometimes even reverse bone mineral loss. Offering excellent training stimulus with a much smaller impact
stress on the knees. It cannot restore tissue that has already been destroyed, but it can protect you against a number of the chronic diseases of old age. More importantly
it can reduce your biological age by as much as 20 years. With regular REBOUNDING exercise your life expectancy is increased, partial and total disability are delayed,
and there are major gains in quality-adjusted life expectancy. Therefore this form of exercise is a very important component of healthy living.
THIS FORM OF training was a key feature in helping Darren Barker achieve his dream to become a World Champion.
It is the ultimate isotonic exercise that moves a fixed amount of resistance through a specific range of motion. No matter how fast you move, the resistance
stays the same. The result is a more consistent and controlled resistance compared to free weights or fixed weight machines.
The water’s buoyancy creates natural instability and water’s increased density offers enhanced levels of resistance that both assist and resist movement.
The major benefit to exercising in the water is the protection it offers for your joints as opposed to when you train your body on land where there is an impact
on your joints. Wayne trains all of his professional athletes in the water because their muscles are forced to work harder and as a consequence they can burn fat
faster and tone the muscles quicker than gym exercising.
AN ATHLETIC MIXED yoga routine that consists of 26 movements, based on focus, breath awareness, flexibility and muscle suppleness.
Wayne’s yoga approach is not traditional, he teaches a form of Yoga Asana that is more akin to strength training to make the mind and body strong.
His sequence works the entire body giving you a wide range of movements: forward bend, back bend, stillness, lengthening the spine, grounding the feet,
strengthening the upper body, stretching the hamstrings, expanding the lungs and more.
Wayne says; ‘This is why Yoga Asana is a great way to work the mind and body to centre and quiet our wandering mind. Binding your breath with every movement
and having a breath associated with it: inhale when going up, and exhale when going down. This is about developing a connection to your core and vertical alignment.
It is the integration of focus, alignment, strength and fluidity, whilst challenging co-ordination and concentration.'
THIS IS THE most efficient, fun and effective way to exercise your body. From big to lean!
People have lost their wobbly bellies and gained incredible lean torsos.
No fitness program is more complete, motivating and fun!
It is also an age-defying training program with proven benefits for injury, rehabilitation, improved cardiovascular fitness, balance and muscle tone. Gravity
keeps us standing on the ground; it also what makes our faces and body sag downward rather than get perkier and lifted.
Rebounder Fitness is more than just exercise; it is gravity in reverse. The routine is a natural energy booster to stimulate the lymphatic system, increase
your energy, stamina and cause less muscle ache and joint pain (especially back pain) than any other exercises. It is more beneficial than running and has been
proven by champion athletes to make them fitter, stronger and faster. For anyone trying to lose weight it increases resting metabolic rate, converting food into
energy to burn more fat cells.
While you are bouncing, your entire body literally has the weight of the world off its shoulders. Many people swear that they look and feel younger, their skin
has better overall texture and their circulation is improved.

this retreat your will experience change that wipes away the bloated, weighty repercussions of life to leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed.
approach to exercise recognises that we’ve all had moments when what we do just flows from us effortlessly. Generally at these times our mind is
quiet and focused. We have also experienced times when everything we do seems difficult.
Most human behaviour is habitual, ART reframes your habitual responses and re-engineers your motivation towards mental awareness and physical fitness. This is not
a universal standard of living, its goal is to develop your physical motivation to change the way you think and help you become the person you want to be.
1 in 5 people are experiencing stress.
1 in 3 suffer with a back problem.
2 in 3 need to lose some weight.
The number of obese people in England have tripled in the past two decades; around a fifth (21%) of men and a quarter (24%) of women are now obese whilst almost
24 million adults are now overweight or obese. What makes the difference to change negative behavioural habits is learning how to feel strong in your mind as well
as your body. You need to have belief in yourself to control disruptive or negative thinking. Our physical state directly affects our mental and emotional well-being.
This is about how we feel, think and behave. Looking after your state of mind is as important as taking care of your body.
In just 2 days you can feel
the benefits of feeling lighter,
leaner fitter and healthier.
