An Oasis drummer is taking on a new role in a group of fitness experts.
The band’s drummer, Chris Geddes, will take part in the second of two seminars for those looking to get in shape for a career in music.
Geddes is in the final stages of getting his first professional massage from his Oasis friend and fellow fitness instructor, Mark Taylor.
“I’ve been doing this for about eight years and I’ve never seen something like this before,” Gedde said in an interview with CBC News.
“It’s kind of surreal.
I’m really proud of what he’s doing and how he’s helping people get fit.”
Gedde was in a band called The Vandals, with Taylor.
Taylor’s wife, Lizzy, has a private massage practice, where she does an hour-long session each week.
She’s a professional massage therapist.
“He’s doing it for me, but he’s also helping me train people,” Giddes said.
Taylor said he’s been doing bodywork for years.
“Bodywork is a good way to improve your core and get your hips stronger and improve your flexibility,” Taylor said.
“And when you’re young, you’re not getting as many workouts in as you should because you’re so young.
So to do it with an old friend like me, who’s a great massage therapist, I’m happy that I can help him out.”
Taylor said the sessions will be held at the gym of the fitness centre, The Biltmore, which has a large fitness centre and is a favourite spot for people looking to exercise.
“They’ve got a lot of different options to choose from and we have a lot,” Taylor explained.
“We’ve got different types of machines, we’ve got kettlebells, we’re all in the same gym, we all have our own sets.”
There’s a lot you can do, a lot that you can’t do at home.
“Giddes will also be teaching a group about how to do a proper massage.”
If you’re looking to be in a certain body shape, it’s not just about what you’re wearing,” Guddes said in a news release.”
You have to have a good base of physical strength and core strength.
“Taylor says he knows the benefits of being in a physical therapy clinic.”
A lot of people are looking for that kind of thing, to really get their body in shape, so you can get a workout,” Taylor added.”
When you can feel your muscles being stronger and your joints being stronger, you can then move around, so I think it’s good for you.
Gidds says he will be doing the first two seminars in Vancouver and Calgary.””
It can really change your mind about whether you want to do this, or whether you should,” Taylor concluded.
Gidds says he will be doing the first two seminars in Vancouver and Calgary.
“As long as people have the desire to be physically active, we should encourage that,” he said.
Gadds says that if you can find a physical therapist who can do an hour of work a week, that is a lot better than having someone to do the sessions.
“So I think that’s the way I feel about the training and the way that we’re training,” he added.
Gedds says Taylor is going to teach him how to massage people.
“Just for fun, I’ll do a massage.
I have to say that’s a good one,” Gadds said.
