Fibromyalgia Exercise DVD Reviews

The Fibro Guy Graded Exercise DVD sales are going well, and is receiving good reviews. Our admin Hazel has been trying out the DVD as well, and has this to say : The exercise programme is well laid out, with a warm up section, exercise section then finish off with cool down. I already exercise on a regular basis, so I was able to work through the warm up and level 1 exercise plan without too many problems. But if you are just starting out, you can work at your own pace and slowly increase. And if you can't do the full time for each exercise, you can do less and rest for longer in between. The DVD is a great way to increase your fitness and mobility at home.

International Awareness Day 2015

Today is May 12th which is the birthday of Florence Nightingale who has been thought to have fibromyalgia and / or  ME. This was one of the main reasons for today becoming International Fibromyalgia Awareness day. It is a day that support groups and people with fibromyalgia around the globe come together to raise awareness of fibromyalia. Working together like this does and will make a difference for our tomorrow's. Raise awareness today by talking to people about your fibromyalgia. Friends, workmates and strangers on the street are all people that could learn more about how we cope with this debilitating condition from day to day. If you are on Facebook or Twitter you could join others by using #fibro, #fibromyalgia or #askmeaboutfibromyalgia hashtags or changing your status to tell people that it is International Fibromyalgia Awareness day.
