Slow Down For Faster Results

17th January 2020

I want to talk a little about me BUT a lot about you. It’s been a whole 3 months since I joined my first ever CrossFit gym and I’m over the moon with my progress so far.

It’s January And About To Get Noisy!

3rd January 2020

It’s January and about to get noisy.

Over the following few days, I woke up feeling the same but I had some work commitments I had to fulfil so I kept showing up thinking I’d shake off this bug. However, I didn’t so eventually decided to give my immune system the support it required to help it deal with situation and get me back to normal.

Two Things Love Island Taught Me

29th June 2018

In the last three days I’ve received a couple of emails from industry folk rolling their eyes about Love Island. Meanwhile I have a confession, I love Love Island. I’m late to the party and currently working my way through previous series on Netflix. I dived in out of curiosity to see what the fuss was about and 35 hours later I got it.

Radiators and Drains: Spend Your Time Wisely

13th April 2018

Throughout life you come across (and end up hanging out with) all kinds of people. Despite the diversity they often fall into two very important categories in terms of how you're left feeling after your time together.  We refer to them as "radiators" or "drains."  Taking a moment to decipher who you spend most of your time with can make a big difference to your own health.
