A friend asked me recently how I stay motivated to eat healthily and exercise on a regular basis, I simply replied that "I'm lucky!"

6th July 2016

'When's the best time to train in order to lose body fat?' is a question I get often. It usually stems from the myth that training first thing in the morning on an empty stomach is more fat burning.

I’m a self confessed exercise addict and I’ve touched on this subject in a previous blog on body image because that’s where my training journey started out.
