Healthworkz takes on My MS Marathon

The team at Healthworkz neuro fitness and movement therapy studio are delighted to be getting involved and supporting MS-UK by taking part in My MS Marathon this July!

My MS Marathon is MS-UK’s most accessible marathon. All you need to do is dream up your own challenge based around the number 26, do it in July and pledge to raise £100 for MS-UK’s counselling service. Whether you cycle, game, bake, dance, hop, skip, jump, walk, wheel, knit or run, do it your way for MS-UK! Everyone who raises £100 will receive an exclusive medal for their achievements and will make a huge difference to the lives of people affected by multiple sclerosis.

In the past two years, an incredible £21,736 has been raised for MS-UK’s counselling service from the amazing people who have taken part in My MS Marathon. This has helped to deliver 434 life changing counselling sessions, supporting hundreds of people living with MS to have better mental health. Wherever you are in the country, get involved and join #TeamPurple for the most exciting challenge this July!

Healthworkz has had a strong connection with MS-UK for over ten years. The team has been helping develop MS-UK’s exercise coaching program with online classes and inhouse exercise coaching services. As a privately run exercise studio, Healthworkz continues to provide and support the local and national community who are affected by long-term neurological conditions from MS, stroke, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s, and brain and spinal injuries.

Healthworkz is getting involved with My MS Marathon by opening its studio, for free, to anyone who wishes to participate in Healthworkz’s challenge! The Healthworkz team can help set realistic outcomes and give ideas around your personal challenge.

Healthworkz has a range of exercise machines available to use, including upper and lower body cycling exercises using our popular Thera-bikes or FES RT300 electrical stimulation cycling. Also available is the Balo dynamic balance trainer and Evolve Easystand, Parallel bars, and a treadmill.

As the challenge is around the number 26 you could…

  • Walk 26 metres per week or month on the parallel bars, or at home along the work top
  • Cycle 26km per week or month (upper and lower body)
  • Spend 26 minutes in the standing frame or build up over the week
  • Build-up 26km on the treadmill over the month
  • If you’re feeling like you can take on a challenge, you could even try and achieve a full marathon of 26 miles over the month of July by walking, cycling or running

The Healthworkz studio is getting involved with the challenge by trying to achieve 260km a week as a cumulative total from everyone who uses our services. So, whether you’re a current client of Healthworkz or would like to get involved with our My MS marathon challenge, get in touch!
