Our Humour


At Durham Health we believe laughter is always the best medicine.

Our philosophy is work should be fun, to that end we laugh a lot at each other and ourselves.  We hope you enjoy laughing along with us.

This is our doctors advice on diet and excercise ... not to be taken too seriously.


Q: Does an apple a day keep the doctor away?

A: Only if you aim it well enough....


- My doctor told me that jogging could add years to my life!   He was right as I feel 10 years older already...


Q: Is swimming good for your figure?

A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.


Q: Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?

A: Hey! 'round is a shape isn't it'


Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular excercise programme?

A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No pain .... Good!


Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?

A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to one.  If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.


Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?

A: Definitely not! When you excercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.
