Northwood is a thriving town that has many great facilities that can help you stay in shape and mentally and physically. When looking after yourself, taking a holistic approach is something we advocate massively, ensuring that your body and mind are healthy. There are loads of great places in Northwood that can ensure that you can continue on your path towards happiness and health. 


Between the 19th and 30th of January 2022, 36% of working adults reported having worked from home at least once in the last seven days. This cultural shift has been positive for people’s finances, as the travel to work culture has started to recede, but has been negative for the health of the nation. Sitting for long periods can cause serious health issues, not only are you not burning enough calories to keep slim, you could be giving yourself serious muscular-skeletal disorders, diabetes or heart disease. 


So there is no better time, to get up, get out and make a move towards feeling healthier and fitter. Especially if you are reading this blog post from your desk!

Sports Massage 


Sports massage is beneficial for muscle recovery and injury prevention. There are multiple massage therapists in Northwood, such as Lucas Massage Therapy, or Qi Spa. 


Sports massage are very useful in ensuring that your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments are being looked after. It also is a great space to clear your head and will help you relax. 



Northwood Running Spots 


Northwood and Ruislip are very pedestrian friendly areas, so finding yourself a route isn’t too difficult. If you want to get away from running on hard concrete, there are many wilder options out there. 


Ruislip Lido is a 60 acre lake surrounded by scenic forest. If you want to make a day of it, this is a prime location. The Lido has been an attraction since the 60’s and 70’s, and still draws big crowds especially in the summer. Occasionally, wild swimming is permitted, if you can face the icy waters. 


Northwood Recreation Ground  is another, slightly less scenic, running spot that is frequently used. Northwood Recreation Ground does offer other facilities than just a path to run around, there is a Ball court, Cricket pitch, outdoor gym, and tennis courts. 

We have curated a few routes that you might find useful. These are routes that our trainers, and our clients used to achieve their fitness goals. Have a look to see which route suits you best.
