Huge congratulations to one of our chartered physiotherapists, Sheena Patel, who became one Tough Mudder after slogging her way around the popular – and utterly gruelling – 12-mile obstacle race in Oxfordshire this month.

Apart from showing grit and determination (how else do you explain jumping into ice in the Arctic Enema?), Sheena also prepared hard for the race which worked on her upper body strength to crawl through the Birth Canal and the Kiss of Mud to achieving legs of steel to climb up Everest.

An essential part of the training involved Pilates and evidence-based core exercises, thanks to our Pilates instructor, Monica Halper. (See our earlier blog.)

Check out her moves here on YouTube (she raised money for the Herod charity) and be inspired to book in for your classes: 0207 834 3700
