why you should try yoga, even if you think you can't

If you have been following me on social media for a while, you’ll know that I have found a new found enjoyment for yoga.

Having weight trained for a few years, which don’t get me wrong I still love, I have found that incorporating yoga into my training week as being extremely beneficial. This is both in my physical wellbeing and in my mental health. Working  on my weaknesses whilst learning to compliment my strengths is empowering. View Post

Wow, what a hectic month I have had….! And it’s not just the Christmas shopping and festive planning that is taking  up my time, as I am sure many of you can sympathise!

Mum’s the word!

‘I don’t have enough time’, ‘Ah, I’ve been bad with food already today, I may as well start again tomorrow’, ‘I have no-one to go to the gym with!’, ‘I ate healthily for a week but I am still no slimmer!’ ‘Diet starts on Monday..!’

All phrases that I am sure we have all muttered at some point!!

We all have busy lives; whether we are a working professional, a parent, a carer, have pets, have regular hobbies, there is always something that needs to be done! View Post

Deadlifts, Squats, Chin Ups, Log Press, usually exercises associated with men. Men stood in the mirrored section of the gym, grunting, shouting and admiring their biceps while not really doing much, other than intimidating others around them. Sound like a familiar stereotype? View Post
