    Wednesday, February 17, 2016

Review: Insanity

It seems everyone has heard of the Insanity workout but no one knows quite what to make of it. All I knew of it was that it is a 60 day program of high intensity interval training. I’ve heard good and bad things but I figured the only way I’ll know is if I try […]

Workout Vs Work

So, last week I was at Rapha HQ, chatting it up about the Etape and one of the designers mentioned to me that the day before, the whole office had shut down and all the staff went out on a group ride together. Apparently, they do this about three times a year. This fact bowled […]

Bike Ready Booty

As part of my Etape du Tour training, I’m working with KX Gym in Chelsea. They are helping me get my body ready for the challenge, ensuring that I’m physically ready and my nutrition is on point. Through sessions with the chiropractor Ben (who is awesome by the way), we figured out the weak areas […]

And the Winners Are…

So, a couple of weeks ago I announced a competition to win a place on the Etape du Tour. Quite honestly, when Rapha gave me the places to give away, I thought ‘Man, I’m gonna have to beg people to take these places. No one is gonna be crazy enough to take this on.’ Well, […]

Without question, the break out star of the Olympics was flyweight boxer, Nicola Adams. The Leeds lass with a big smile who can certainly pack a punch.

Heels of the Day

Oh Sigerson Morrison, you evil genius. Absolutely loving these heels. There’s strappiness, there’s gold croc effect leather, there’s lovely stroke-able suede, but most of all, there’s 5 inches of heel to give you a boost. I love the shape of these – so feminine and badass. And, they’re currently on sale over at The Outnet. […]

A Thank You

A year ago today, I launched this site. I’d become frustrated by the majority of fitness media aimed at women. With the way myself and the women around me like to train, I knew there had to be a change. There had to be something out there for women who push themselves, women who go […]

No Charity Love?

It used to be you could sign up to run a marathon, pay your fee and trot through your 26.2 worrying only about your miles. Now, the game has changed. It’s all about charity. You cannot simply run a marathon anymore, mainly because it’s become harder and harder to get in one. So many races […]
