    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 […]

Fit Girl Problems

We love being fit badasses, of course we do, but sometimes it comes with its fair share of hassles, amiright ladies? Not to say we don’t overcome said hassles, but they sure do make us roll our eyes on training days. Here’s a few classics: – The smell that emanates from your protein shaker if […]


The Run Funk

Everyone experiences it at some point, I think no matter what kind of training you do. I’m currently in a ‘run funk’. As I rise for my 6am runs each day, I find myself just going through the motions. It occurred to me last week that I basically just kinda suck at running. I always […]


Street Athlete: Tahirah

– Name Tahirah – Age 25 – Occupation Writer – What’s your sport? Running – How did you get into it? Starting from sloth levels that far surpass couch-potato, I begun dragging myself around my block before this bad-ass I know invited me to be part of her project, Bangs on the Run 2. I […]

Spikes Style: Gym Junk

I’m diggin’ the laid back vibes of new activewear brand, Gym Junk. A little bit retro, it has that combination of gym wear to street wear that I like. Hoodies, jogging bottoms and muscle tees with pops of colour make for an easy to go collection to help you work out in style. But one […]

Review: Tough Mudder

Guest post by Aimee Quantrill In January of this year I moved to Liverpool for my dream job as a copywriter. The only downside is that I spend a lot of my time at a desk not being very active. Logically I thought I should do something to combat this. Illogically I decided that thing […]


RDC Youngers

I’m sure I’ve spoken on here before about being a member of Run Dem Crew. I feel very lucky to be part of a collective that gives me such amazing support with my running. One of the main things we believe in as a crew is empowering young people through running, hence, why we run […]


Tight Club Vancouver

So I was having a little convo with the folks at LuluLemon last week and they pointed out a little collaboration they did with this awesome crew from Vancouver called Tight Club. Frankly, I’m a little disgusted with myself that I hadn’t heard of them before. I love the vibe of this video and reading […]


Review: Nike Hyperfeel

Nike have been my shoe of choice since I started running three years ago and they’ve always done the job. I’m currently running in Flyknits (as evidenced by my daily 6am run shots on Instagram), which I’d say are my favourite running shoes yet. But then, last night, I had the chance to try out […]

Spikes&HeelsClass _2

Spikes & Heels Class

The next Spikes & Heels class will be next Monday, 30th September, 7:45pm at Gymbox Farringdon. We changed the day from Wednesday to Monday. Why? Because Monday’s are awesome and it’s good to start your week with a high energy kick up the backside to get you going in the right direction. Start your week […]

Pre-Race Bike Checks

The good folks at London Duathlon sent me this info a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t get a chance to post it before the actual duathlon which took place last weekend, but hey, I figured it’s just good info for the bike lovers. In the lead up to the Etape, I was in a […]
