If you're feeling unmotivated and sluggish and don't know where to start to get your fitness back on track, then toning tables may be the ideal solution to get a stretch back into your body.

If you're suffering from high blood pressure or high cholesterol, then look no further. Our Pilates based toning tables are suitable for both male and female of all ages and help to reduce these two conditions.

If you are having difficulty touching your toes, or tying your shoelaces, then you have to start somewhere and there's no point in putting it off. Rest assured, the toning tables will help loosen your muscles and help stretch you out safely and effectively. It's worth trying them out as they are like any style of exercise, as well as suitable to each individual's needs. We have many different types of clients including rehabilitation from hip operations or knee replacements. One client came in on a crutch and went out without it. She reported that she felt so good leaving that she forgot all about it. Also she told me her doctors said she was having an excellent and very quick recovery and added that it was down to doing the toning tables regularly three times a week.

The tables are fantastic at working on the pelvic floor muscle also. You must still do the work - but the tables will guide you in the right direction. Any bladder issues or pelvic floor muscle issue don't just go away so it's important to work on them or you will be heading for surgery. It's so important to heal the muscles after weight loss or pregnancy also, and can be done even if your child is 10-years-old for example. Basically, at any age it's never too late and it will change the quality of your life dramatically.

The award-winning Kingdom Pride in Kerry festival is back next week and Killarney will take centre stage.

Kingdom Pride will be celebrated in towns all across the county from July 17 to 21.

The organisation’s flagship Party in the Park event will be held again in Killarney House and Gardens, following the Pride march in the town centre on July 20.

This year, in solidarity with the people of Palestine, Kingdom Pride in Kerry is inviting the people of Kerry to come to show their unity by bringing Palestinian flags and kites to the march, and to the Party in the Park.

“Pride is a protest for human rights all over the world. Here in the Kingdom, we have been so lucky to receive tremendous community support from our allies and supporters, and we see the struggle for liberation of all peoples as a united cause,” said Daniel Quirke, chairperson of the organising committee.

“Our events have always welcomed everyone, regardless of gender, orientation, religion, or nationality. We truly believe that together we can create positive change through caring for and loving one another. This year is no exception, and we look forward to helping to highlight the Palestinian cause, and to bringing people together to keep generating positive change for all people.”

Events will take place in Cahersiveen, Listowel, Killorglin, Tralee and Dingle, and include an Irish comedy night with Áine Gallagher, an Irish-language movie screening, yoga, sea swimming, poetry and storytelling, bowling, pitch and putt, a lively drag night at the INEC, and plenty more for people of all ages.

“We do our best to keep tickets as low-cost as possible, and we have lots of events that are totally free to attend. It is important to us that people can share Pride with us, regardless of income. Especially with the rise of the cost of living putting a strain on people’s pockets.” added the chairperson.
