    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 […]

Heels of the Day

Well, check these out for a simple, classic Heel of the Day. This is my absolute favourite shape of shoe. And that’s the perfect height too. I am loving the colour of these and that snakeskin effect gives them just that little something different. A good alternative to a plain black heel, this colour works […]

Why I Don’t Talk About Weight Loss

When I started this site, one of the main principles of it was that I would never talk about weight loss. That’s not why I was working out and it’s not why the majority of women I know work out. Since pretty much all media about fitness aimed at women approaches it from a weight […]

ARTIS: Future of the Gym

With the variety of fitness apps around now, it’s clear technology is playing more and more of a part in our fitness these days. We’ve all seen gym equipment advance over the years, but Technogym‘s new range, ARTIS, is most definitely the future of the workout. This summer, I went to have a play with […]

Spikes & Heels Class

  The fantastical Spikes & Heels class has been moved to Mondays. Why? Because Mondays are awesome and you deserve to start your week setting a precedent of badassery that the rest of the week must strive to match. That’s why. If you like to work out, sweat, pant, laugh, grunt, squat, burpee and Pilates […]

Review: TomTom Sport Watch

TomTom, the good folks who’ve been helping us directionally challenge people get around with their wondrous technology the last few years have come out with a sport watch.

Race Report: Race The Train

Guest post by Efe Avan-Nomayo giving her Race the Train race report. I’d never heard of it before my friend mentioned it. Essentially you race against the steam train on the Talyllyn Railway in North West Wales. It’s pretty multi-terrain, starting in the town of Tywyn and meandering through places I can’t pronounce. Initially all […]

Heels of the Day

Oh….my….GAAAADDDDD! My heart just skipped a beat. Look at these beauties. LOOK AT THEM! Nicholas Kirkwood is some kind of footwear genius. I’m basically loving everything about these. Coming in at just over £1000, they may be *ahem* slightly pricey, but you could always hang them on your wall – proper work of art stylee. […]
