Fresh Air | Outdoor fitness with BRITA Fill&Go

Us Brits tend to do one of several things when the sun shows its face briefly – A) flock to the nearest beer garden, B) wear shorts in weather that isn’t quite warm enough, and C) state how blue the sky is in every second sentence.  Just to make sure everyone in the vicinity is aware it’s a Good Weather Day of course.  There’s a scent of barbecue wafting down the street (although lets face it, how many times does…

Slow & Soft | A New Approach To Slowing Life Down

Girl tucking hair behind ear.

OK so my idea for this post was to talk about taking life a little slower sometimes, and given that it’s taken me a good half hour and 2 cups of tea to think of an opening sentence, I’d say I’m doing pretty well so far.  My brain’s worked hard today and it’s on a go slow, evidently! But yes, in general I often feel like I’m always trying to think of ways to speed up.  Cramming more into a…

Health and Fitness Q&A | Regime, Butt Workouts and Secrets For Abs

Girl with wind blown hair doing side lunges

Another fitness post because I’m all about the snazzy fit kit at the minute.  For both gymming and wearing around the house, that is.  Can’t get enough of it! I feel like fitness blogging is a bit of an odd one, because unless you’re a qualified PT or something, you don’t want to come across like you think you know what you’re talking about when in actual fact you don’t.  That’s how I feel, anyway.  Almost slightly fraudulent if you…

Go Hard or Go Home | Attitude to Fitness and Life

I don’t know about you, but I feel like a workout’s wasted if I’m not either sweaty, sore or stretched afterwards. I definitely have a ‘go hard or go home’ attitude in the gym (if you saw the ugly faces I pull by rep 11 of 12 you’d believe me!).  And I think it’s a pretty good attitude to apply to other things in life too.  I guess I’m an all or nothing kind of person! But yes, workout wise…

Bodypump 100 | The Butt Burning, Arm Burning, EVERYTHING Burning Workout

OK so the new year fitness shenanigans are over and done with now, but I wrote in my notebook that I plan to do more fitness ‘stuff’ on the blog this year and if it’s in the notebook it’s gotta happen!  So here we are with one of my favourite workouts.  I’ve been doing BodyPump for literally years, so was obviously more than happy to attend the launch event of BODYPUMP100 a couple of weeks ago to share with you…

How to Have a Healthy Attitude Towards Health and Fitness in 2017

Wouldn’t be new year without at least one health and fitness post would it?  I’m writing this in my pyjamas, having not been to the gym today, and with no intention of squeezing in a gym sesh amongst the other stuff I’ve got on.  I’m also writing this with glutes so sore it hurts to sit down (changed up my leg day routine yesterday and I am FEELING it) so yeah, it’s not all lazy.  Just letting you know that…

why and how to stay fit on holiday

First things first: I’m well aware that exercising might be the absolute last thing you want to do on holiday.  Below ‘get covered in 538 midge bites’ on your list of priorities.  However… not exercising for 7+ days might also be the last thing you want to do to your fitness routine.  Totally depends on the type of holiday too ofc – in France I worked out every single day (save for the couple that I was ill and didn’t…
