Pre- and Post-Natal: When fear isn’t enough of a reason to hide away

A few months ago I made the decision to embark on a Pre and Postnatal Exercise Referral Course. This came as a little bit of a shock to those that know me well as I am not exactly the most… relaxed person regarding the subject. In all honesty I have been ever-so-slightly terrified of childbirth […]


Are you ready to fight the good fight?

Hi guys! I started this article thinking that I would write a quick little summin’ summin’ about some amazing podcasts I have been listening to that I thought would be of interest to some of you.

Preventing and Treating Colds & Flus

Summer is finished and we’re slowly approaching the dreaded cold and flu season, which we all know can have a very big impact on your training. If you have a cold or flu, you’ll be feeling tired, fatigued, achy, you’d have a runny nose and cough, and just generally unpleasant. No one wants to train […]


A Message For The Self Critic

It often takes a long time (I’m talking up to 6 months) before a female client feels comfortable to talk to me about their period, and […]


Could Exercise Be SLOWING DOWN Your Weight Loss?

Scary title, right? But what’s even more scary is that it is often the case! You’ve been wanting to lose weight all this time, you finally found the motivation to take up an exercise regime (notice that YOU found it, not IT found you – there’s a lesson even in that), and you’re putting in […]

I know it’s been a long time since our last blog was released, educating you on how to improve your health and make informed decisions, but we are finally back! And just before we jump into this juicy blog, it would be great to get your opinion on what you would like to know and […]


What to take before a workout? A science-based approach

What should you take before you workout? There are lots of different studies around the various forms of pre-workout supplementation and food intake. In my opinion – backed by the wide variability in what I‘ve read – it can’t be the same for everyone, and you need to test what works for you. That’s because […]
