    Fitness Instructors: Up Your Game

    Wednesday, February 17, 2016

    Fitness instructors, the time has come for you to get it together. Gone are the days when this was a nice little side earner for you. So too, are they times you thought this was an easy qualification to get in lieu of ‘getting a proper job’. See, the fitness landscape has changed and I […]

Girls Gotta Run

Late last year, I learned of an organisation called Girls Gotta Run Foundation who are doing some incredible work empowering girls in Ethiopia through running. Lifting young women up through getting them active? Obviously, this is something I can most definitely get behind. The more I read about what they’re doing, the more appreciation I […]

Review: Krav Maga

When I dragged my ass off the couch a few years ago to get active again, my first port of call was boxing. I frikkin’ loved it. Fitness-wise, it got my fitness levels back up relatively quickly and of course, came with the added bonus of learning how to throw a punch. A couple of […]

Insanity Month 2 Review

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’ve been doing the Insanity workout – 60 days of high intensity interval training which most definitely lives up to the name. I did a review of the first month and promised to update you when I completed the full 60 days. Well, as […]

Heels of the Day

  Behold! The Heels of the Day! Having just booked my holiday for the summer, I find myself wasting hours looking at summer shoes (the word ‘wasting’ belonged nowhere in that sentence – we’re discussing SHOES man, nothing’s wasted there, amiright?). Anyhoo, I came across these beauties by Sophia Webster and it was instant love. […]

Women’s Only Races

One of the many reasons I started this site was because of a conversation I found myself having repeatedly. Women’s only races. It kinda goes without saying that I’m pro-women. I am one, hence, have kind of a vested interested here. Given the evidence that women are more likely to work out if they can […]

Robin Arzon: MS Runs the US

I’m extremely lucky to count the incredible Robin Arzon as my friend. We may live on different continents, but we are bound by our mutual love of running, sweating and generally being awesome. Over the past few months, I have watched from afar as Robin trained to run five marathons in five days (yeah, you […]

Marathon Tips

Edinburgh Marathon is coming up on Sunday – a favourite among many on the marathon circuit. I have one friend who did it last year and one who’s doing it this year (her first marathon!), so I thought I’d catch up with them both to get the perspective of a marathon newbie and some advice […]

Spikes & Heels Class Success!

Wednesday night saw the inaugural Spikes & Heels class hit Gymbox in Farringdon and what a class it was! The incredibly badass Pavlina Golds headed up the session with an intense workout that burned from the get go. This was a taster class to see how people would respond to it. If they liked it, […]

Fave Summer Sportswear

As it starts to heat up, we finally get to bust out our summer sportswear collections. It’s no secret, I’m all about not compromising my sense of style just ’cause I work out. I love a bold print, I love colour and I love pieces that are good for ‘crossover’ into regular every day wear. […]

Cycling: Inclines & Descents

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I spent the weekend in Nice cycling up some big mountains. I got some really excellent coaching while I was there and due to my taking on of the Etape du Tour in July, I was paying particular attention to any instruction given on how to handle inclines and […]
