Get your body summer ready

The positive mental effect that the Universal Contour Body Wrap brings can be truly amazing and uplifting, and it's most definitely one of my favourite treatments.

This isn't a water loss treatment or a temporary fix. By sticking to the aftercare instructions e.g., a healthy diet and lifestyle, the Universal Contour Wrap treatments provide confidence, positivity and motivation, helping you to feel and look your best. It is a great overall detox for the body as it really speeds up the blood and lymph flow which helps to flush out all the toxins in the body especially the cellulite in the thighs.

The results to be expected are instant and lasting, such as inch-loss, detoxification and cellulite reduction.
The Elite Body Wrap is an advanced treatment with dead sea clay fortified with minerals. You'll be wrapped in up to 28 bandages and our completely unique Chrysalis machine uses specific lifting and tightening wrapping procedures. We offer the added benefits of muscle toning, cellulite reduction or enhanced inch loss. It's absolutely relaxing and rejuvenating.

Using electrical leads under the bandages, it'll be applied to your stubborn areas - usually thighs and tummy.

Shaping: For modelling and sculpting the thighs. It can be combined with the cellulite programme.
Toning: An intensive programme for toning abdominal muscles and thighs.
Cellulite: Reduces cellulite in the most critical areas by increasing localised circulation and cell exchange.

HOW IT WORKS

The combination of our classic clay solution and specialist body wrapping techniques draw out toxins whilst compressing the soft fatty tissues to create instant inch loss and firming effect and the electrical leads to stimulate the circulation. This is three different processes in one for ultimate results, giving you an overall feeling of well-being. Also, you are placed into a heated blanket that cocoons the entire body helping you to sweat out the toxins, giving you deeper relaxation. The wrap was originally designed by a doctor to help his patients speed up inch loss but they saw much better results - more than just inch loss.

The instant heat relaxes the body and quickly opens the skin’s pores, allowing the clay solution to draw out the toxins more rapidly and boost the blood flow. The effects allow for more oxygenation of tissues and lymphatic exchange, increasing the detoxification process.
As the process is underway the electrical muscle stimulation contracts muscle tissue to help break down cellulite and tone the skin.

Science supports time off and recharging as a means of reducing stress, improving productivity and living a healthier lifestyle.

A wellness day can be a godsend in this scenario offering a place to relax, rejuvenate, reflect, detox, and pamper yourself while getting some much needed ‘me time’. Relaxing time is, more than ever, an important part of life. Seeking out health boosting treatments that work for you are essential for a healthier quality of life. As we have entered the dark cycle, it brings space for new beginnings. I used to struggle with this time of year and now I find I embrace the invitation, maybe age or wisdom! There can be a lot of cultural and habitual ways of thinking about tending to our needs that might need to be unpacked from our minds; that serving our needs is selfish, that expressing needs is not being grateful enough… that we should muscle through and get on with it…. that caring for your needs is indulgent.

One way we can start to get rid of some of these myths and move towards our needs is to spend time in nature; fresh air, walks, taking care of ourselves, to notice how we feel when we feel supported and nurtured.

Another way of unwinding is booking a holistic or beauty treatment which can be more beneficial than the end result. It can be the process of the letting go and having time for yourself. The relaxation helps improve circulation and lymphatic drainage which are all positive results from a little bit of self-care.

If you have never tried a hot stone massage, a Swedish massage, reflexology, a facial, pedicure or foot health now is the time to book. If you simply don’t know where to start then call Jill on 064 6632966 for advice.

Want to gain a sharper edge this off-season and be a stronger, faster, and more powerful athlete in 2023? If the answer is yes, then join Activate’s 2023 pre-season programme.

The majority of athletes will want to enter the pre-season:

– Fitter, able to withstand the hard sessions ahead
– Bigger and stronger, so they can handle and dominate the knocks, bumps and contacts
– With greater speed, so they can outrun the opposition.

That is where we come in.

Why Activate, Why Now?

Over the last number of years, the ‘season’ of any given sport has changed drastically. Now, amateur sports people are expected to train all year round as professionals do. The off-season used to mean putting your feet up, these days it means you can put yourself to (smart) work, honing in on any weaknesses in your armour. Athletes who choose to take it easy and not enhance their athletic performance are at an immediate disadvantage when the season begins.

It is often athletes who are most serious about their sport that are least likely to ‘take it easy’ during any stage of the season. They are often the ones who are first back to the gym or pitch after a season ends, usually with a generic programme in hand. These training programmes are usually given to every player on the team, regardless of any individual needs you may have and you are left to your own devices to get through it. Many athletes are willing, or do, put in the hard work that is required, but often the effort being put in is not transferring into the results that are deserved from the amount of work being put in.

If it was as easy as a generic training programme (mostly terrible .pdf docs), we’d see resilient, powerful and confident athletes everywhere come day one of the season. But we don’t because it’s not as simple as a tick box programme or finding the latest circus trick exercises on social media. Do we expect a goalkeeper to cover the same sprint distance as a corner forward in a match? No. Do we expect a corner back to cover the same total distance as a midfielder in a match? No. So why do we expect the same programme to work for every player, regardless of playing position, individual needs and so on?

Through testing and a needs analysis, we will determine what area of your individual game needs improvement and put a plan in place that will allow you to gain a sharper edge this off-season.
 

What Are We Offering?

We are offering an eight-week pre-season programme to any Gaelic footballer or general sport enthusiast. We are aware that some seasons are still ongoing, therefore the earliest start date is November 21, and the latest start date is December 12.

If you want to level up this year, you’ll want to consider having a fully integrated system for developing your athleticism. Allow us to put in place a system for you, working with a master’s qualified Strength & Conditioning Coach who has considerable inter-county playing experience, supported by some of the best in the business in S&C, Physiotherapy and Nutrition.

A system that ensures when it matters, you are ready.
