Ten years ago I took part in a sport that just a year prior I had never heard of. I entered into a strange tribe of lycra clad athletes who all looked like they knew what they were doing. And not only that they all had incredible bodies, strong, long limbs…washboard stomachs and broad shoulders….

Over the past month or so I have been supporting British Triathlons #YourGoTri campaign, a marketing drive to show that any body can give Triathlon a go, and to point new comers to the sport to the range of events on offer around the country. Now, the last multi sport event I did was the…

So let’s get one thing straight….I am a runner…thats what I do, however what you might not know is I am also quite partial to trying other fitness stuff too…I swim, I cycle, I do yoga (badly) and very occasionally I do try more extreme things like circuit training, body pump and kettlebells, I just never…

People often believe my first big race must have been a running event, but in fact this is not true it was actually a Triathlon.

Yes you read that right. After saying NEVER AGAIN after my last terrifying obstacle race (which you can read about here) I have done a complete U turn and now have a place for a SPARTAN RACE happening in just 2 and a bit weeks time. Why? Well, because there is one taking place right…

Imagine never having to have a gym membership again and being able to rock up to your local park to take part in friendly fitness sessions in the fresh air? And….Imagine being able to do this for FREE??? Well you can with Our Parks, an initiative dreamed up by fellow East London entrepreneur Born Barikor…

When it comes to testing new bits of kit I am pretty much up for anything, and it is one of the best perks of being a fitness blogger but when the request came through to test a Me Mover I was excited beyond belief and I simply couldn’t wait. From the images I saw…
