Fitness should be fun - that’s our mantra which we want everyone in the world to know! Sure, you can sweat but can you smile at the same time? It’s all about finding the activity that’s right for you and if it makes you happy, you’re more likely to stick with it.
Today is International Women’s Day - a day to be celebrated, a day to remember the sacrifices of others before us, and a day to remind ourselves to continue being strong.
Hands up whoever feels that 3pm slump? That mid-afternoon dead zone where you’re crashing from a full morning and a tasty lunch, and you’re struggling to keep your eyes open?

We all know the drill - we get a burst of motivation to begin a new fitness regime. We may set stupidly high expectations and goals for ourselves, or work ourselves to the bone to try get immediate results… but before we know it, we’re hurting and disappointed by the lack of change.
Getting injured is not fun. Not only does it hurt like hell, but it can put you out of action for extended periods of time which is beyond frustrating. Sports injuries can scupper your training, set you back on your fitness journey and make you feel incredibly exasperated.
Summer holidays are in… but does that mean your fitness is out? Jumping on a plane is pretty darn exciting, but as you fly away from your home and routines, it could also mean bidding a farewell to your fitness routines.
Hands up if you’re guilty for spending too much time on social media? We all scroll through Instagram and Facebook, lapping up content on a daily basis. But are you keeping up-to-date with the right kind of influences? Do they keep you inspired? Do you feel motivated by what they share?
