Is Veganism for life, or just for January?

Rather than a New Years Resolution this year, you’ll remember that instead I took the Veganuary pledge and decided to follow a vegan diet for the whole of January. As an animal lover I’ve been a vegetarian for many years, but never before given up fish, dairy and eggs, and I was truly curious to see how consuming a plant based diet would affect my energy, my weight and my training. And indeed to see just how easy or difficult it might be as a busy freelance PT to stick to veganism on the go. So 6 weeks after Veganuary ended did I dive straight back into salmon and scrambled eggs?

The Support of a great Sports Bra with Figleaves x Another Space

“Boobs to Bar!” – definitely my phrase of the morning last Thursday and not something I was expecting to hear in a sweaty spin class – but perfect none the less! Last week I was invited by lingerie website Figleaves to try out a sports bra from their impressive online range in a spin class at the brand new Another Space studio in Bank. When super sassy instructor Olivia shouted at us to get our “Boobs to Bar” as we were dipping we may have laughed but it couldn’t have been more apt (and we definitely feel there’s an online campaign for Figleaves in there somewhere…!!)

I chose to try out the Freya Freestyle Soft Crop Sports Bra, but how did it stand up to this super intense workout?

Welcome to Veganuary!

Firstly – please let me wish you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR – and here’s hoping 2018 brings you health and happiness. I hope this brand new year has started well for you so far – mine is starting in a very different way this time as I’m waking up on New Years Day as a vegan. I’ve taken the Veganuary pledge, and for the next 31 days I will be eating an entirely plant-based diet. I haven’t eaten meat for over 10 years (for ethical reasons), but I have been eating fish, eggs and dairy, and so spending the next 5 weeks consuming no animal-based products whatsoever is most definitely going to be a challenge, but one that as an animal lover I am more than willing to take. But why take on something so huge in one of the most difficult months of the year? Read on to find out.

Secrets of a Personal Trainer

Not a single week seems to go by these days without me getting at least a couple of emails or Direct Messages from people who are thinking about studying to become, or who are in the process of qualifying as a Personal Trainer asking my advice about starting in the industry. Firstly, I am flattered that anyone would want to ask my advice and am always happy to offer it, and secondly, it is amazing that so many people are now interested in careers in the fitness industry. I’m well aware I post often about how much I love my job and my clients and how I genuinely feel blessed to live the life I do, but as with any job, not everything in the life of a Personal Trainer is shiny new Nikes and super happy clients. Whilst I believe it is one of the most rewarding jobs in the world, it can also be hugely demanding at times, so in the interest of balance and honesty I wanted to share with you the Secrets of a Personal Trainer that no one else will tell you….
