How to stay motivated for fitness

Gym motivation
June 7, 2016

First, I’ll be honest, getting back into exercise felt like I was running through treacle. The irony there is I normally ran towards treacle… . Which was the reason for needing to exercise. But looking back at it now, creating a habit was key to where I am now (far from perfect but a trouser size down and jaw line in site). It takes around two months before a new behaviour…

To target or not to

May 1, 2016

I was lucky enough to review www.bodytarget.co.uk product. To simplify it is a platform which generates a menu/plan for your health goal. As a disclaimer I do want to say I wasn’t religious in my use of Body Target… however saying that I did enjoy the recipes (and to be honest it taught me a few new health recipes which I loved (my fav can be seen at the bottom…

One of our Fitness Hackers, Sarah Withers, was incredible on the weekend and ran the London Marathon. Below she has detailed her experience for all. Thank you Sarah! Almost 40,000 people ran the 2016 London Marathon, which started in Greenwich Park in south-east London and ended 26.2 miles later in Pall Mall.  Tim Peake, a British astronaut, took part in the London marathon by strapping himself to a treadmill in…

Booty call (test your legs with this leg routine)

April 15, 2016

I’ve got the rugby curse/blessing of a phat (fat) ass. Beyoncé esque but with a little less insurance. Why? Well the simple reason is the sport and the exercises’ associated to leg exercises have allowed me to reap the benefits. Since losing most of the muffin top (and muffin supply) I’ve worked hard on my legs and bum. Main reasons ‘for me’ being; They’re the biggest muscle(s) in your body –…

Coffee – let’s make it better

April 14, 2016

As stated in a previous post I use coffee as a #FitnessHack for two reasons; Energy, and; Judge me as you will, to stop food cravings. Though it should be noted coffee does help burn fat and improve physical performance… However, even with it’s benefits, and being true to trying to constantly better oneself and with a little help from my friend… Google, I’ve changed the way I drink Coffee,…

Reward yourself with a post-work out feed

April 12, 2016

The age old dilemma of what to actually eat and what is most beneficial for your body and muscles? I always liken this to something I got told when I was in PE at school, “your body is like a sports car and needs high quality ‘fuel’ to keep it going… you wouldn’t put cheap crap in your new car so why would you do the same to your body”? This…

Parklife – staying fit with friends

April 11, 2016

As we sat there panting away in the grass, at a time when we mostly defiantly should have been stretching- It occurred to me and my flatmate Mary, that we were four months into the year and had managed to stick to our new year’s resolution! Finsbury Park Parkrun felt like an easy new year’s resolution to make, not too intrusive, easy to register and its right at the end…

Jane – Fitness Hacker

April 9, 2016

We understand that everyone has their own motivation, problems etc. Because of this we created the “Fitness Hacker” area, where you can quickly look at other Fitness Hackers around the world and see if you can draw inspiration and ideas from them… easily! A slight bias with this one. This is my beautiful sister… who doesn’t realise how incredible her change was. So through some persuading I got her to create…

Spiced Carrot and Broccoli Omelette

April 9, 2016

This recipe is something I knocked up to help obtain a good level of protein and a balanced diet with minimal ingredients (balanced because it was helping balance the pizza out I had a few days ago). Broccoli and carrot are two of the most basic and cheap vegetables on the market, but spice them up with some more Eastern flavours and you have a whole new type of creature. Make…
