    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 […]

Power of Running

By Marta Cooper I love running. Of course I do, I wouldn’t be waxing lyrical for this blog if I didn’t relish in the sweaty cruise across the Embankment, jutting in and out of unassuming tourists with a mash-up of hip hop and Thin Lizzy for company. Running has made me a better person. Compared […]

Health is Wealth

We came across this video of rapper Styles P recently over on the RBG Fit Club website (run by Stic Man of legendary rap group Dead Prez). Everything Styles P says in this video struck a chord with us. It’s exactly how we feel about health and fitness too. It should be an all encompassing […]

In Training: Lindsey Stopp

We noticed that Lindsey Stopp was following us on Twitter. As soon as we saw in her bio that she’s running the Marathon Des Sables (6 days/151 miles through the Sahara desert), we knew we had to speak to her. The story of why she’s doing it is beyond motivational, we figured it’s best to […]

Gyakusou Women’s Spring 2012 Collection

Finding functional yet fashionable running gear is an eternal quest for runners. Alas, we may have found the answer in Gyakusou‘s recent collaboration with Nike. While us ladies had to be jealous of the men’s gear for the past couple of seasons, they’ve finally come out with a women’s line for Spring and it is […]

Spikes Style

Petra Bender runs with Run Dem Crew and is without a doubt one of the most stylish runners around. We’re not sure if she has more running attire than actual clothes but it seems she’s wearing something different every time we see her. Always experimenting with colour clashes and layering, Petra has found a great […]
