FITTER Festive Survival Guide

We LOVE Christmas but it’s easy to get carried away with all the booze, biscuits and boxes of chocolates on offer around the clock. Whilst it’s great to indulge a little with friends and family and get stuck into the festivities you don’t want to end the year feeling miserable because you’ve gained weight, you’re knackered, bloated and your skin is suffering a breakout. All of this can put you in a negative mood and make you no good company to be around, not an ideal mindset to kick off 2017 .

Five Things I’m Glad I Knew Before Running A Marathon

In my last blog I wrote about the highs and lows of running a half marathon (check it out here).

I firmly believe I’d never have made it to the starting line had I not implemented some really cool stuff prior to the race that made me a stronger runner.

Five Things I Wish I Knew Before Running a Marathon

Train in the evening? Then read this for EPIC results

‘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. Truth is, there is little evidence to support this claim and this can often be counter-productive. Instead, I have always said the most effective time of day to train for fat loss is the time of day that would allow for the most adherence.

7 Steps To Get Your Appetite Under Control

It’s all very well us telling you to eat Fitter Food but not so helpful if you struggle with appetite control and managing your portion sizes. It’s actually a common issue, especially if you’re looking to lose weight as you may have lost the ability to eat intuitively and listen to your tum when it tells you it’s full, or even more damagingly, override its message that you’ve had enough.
