Commonwealth Games Glasgow 2014

The Commonwealth Games came to an end over the weekend with the mantle officially passed on to Australia for the next Commonwealth Games in 2018, it’s time to look back at the Glasgow Games.

While events like the Commonwealth Games and the Olympics are great spectacles and a lot of fun to watch, it’s worth remembering that a lot of effort goes into the performances that you’re cheering. Athletes can make the extraordinary things they do look easy. Tom Daley executes a perfect dive, Usain Bolt breaks yet another record and Erraid Davies wins a bronze medal at just 13. It’s easy to think that these feats come naturally to these incredible people, that it’s not something you could do.

But that’s just not true!

As we wave goodbye to another great Games on UK soil, it’s worth remembering that everyone starts somewhere. Tom Daley and Erraid Davies had to learn to swim before they could even dream of winning medals!

At the Forge, we believe in taking the very best care of yourself that you can. This involves seeking treatment for injuryeating well; resting when you need to; exercising and getting regular check ups. However, we also know that care starts in the mind. If you don’t believe that you can exercise or eat well, then you won’t.

We firmly believe that everyone has the right to live pain-free and as fit as possible, so they are ready to take on the world. That’s why we aim not only to treat your body, but to give you the advice and encouragement to take achievable steps towards a healthier lifestyle.

Our practitioners can advise you on where to start with a fitness regime, tailored to any pain or injury you might have. Nutritional therapist Julie Deeks can help you overhaul your diet and get as healthy as possible on the inside.

If you have been inspired by the athletes at the Commonwealth Games to make health and fitness changes to your life, give us a call on 020 8332 6184, email us at or book online.
