    How I’m Kickstarting Myself Back into Shape

    Life happened. Summer didn’t happen weatherwise but still the summer months threw me off my healthy course. Going on holiday didn’t help either but you have to treat yourself now and again. As long as you know it’s only for a short while and that you’ll get back in the game afterwards, I’m all for it! Getting back in the game is exactly what I have done and I feel so much better for it. I kickstarted myself back into shape and here’s how. Upping my amount of gym sessions Since coming back from holiday, I decided to fit in more sessions at the gym. Weightlifting gym session which I…

  • Gift Guide for Fitness Friends

    Looking for gift suggestions for friends who are in to fitness? Since starting my PT sessions a couple of months ago I’ve tried out some new products which I love. I think other gym goers would appreciate these products in their stockings or under the Christmas tree. Here’s my gift guide for your fitness friends. 1.

    Achieving My Fitness Goals with Coaching from a Personal Trainer

    In September this year I decided that I needed some guidance in reaching my fitness goals. I want to loose 7-10kg and tone up my arms. Since April last year I have been attending the the morning gym class 3-5 times every weekday. I have cycled to work for years and since two years back, I also stopped eating all the snacks and treats that’s on daily offer at work. Since, I’ve seen a progress in that I feel fitter and healthier and I have also noticed a slow weight loss. Still, I didn’t feel it was enough and I knew that although I’ve stopped eating snacks in the office,…

    I Gave Up Snacks for Lent! Here’s why I’d Like to Rid it Forever

    Lent is over. On Valentine’s Day I decided to give up snacking for lent and 40 days later I realised it’s a very long time. The first couple of days are the worst, whatever it is you decide to give up. For me, an addiction I have and I’d like to control. Addiction might sound like a stretch but it must be when snacks is something I could easily eat every day. And not just one square of chocolate or a handful of crisps each time. No, it would easily be a full bar or a bag, until it’s all gone. I’m very proud of myself for giving up snacks…

  • What's in my gym bag

    What’s in my Gym Bag

    I feel like I live in my gym bag. Most days I go to the gym, before work or during the lunch hour. I also cycle to work which means I can’t bring the biggest gym bag to fit it all. My Kånken bag is a life saviour: it’s the perfect size to fit everything I need but I have to think carefully how I pack it all. This picture only shows a snapshot of what I bring but it didn’t all fit in one shot 🙂 Anyway, whilst I’m being fitness good, I thought I’d share what my little Kånken bag is carrying around to make my healthy and active…
