Fenugreek

I love the little things in life. The the beauty and simplicity of some things, the unexpected and the quirky. It's always when you least expect it that something happens. And if you are open to it, you will catch it and learn from it even though you were not looking for it at that time.

ALS – the rest of your life

I write about health, fitness and sports - that is my passion and an intrinsical part of my life. I write about things you can do to train, to get the most out of your life, to stay healthy and most of all, to LIVE your life with passion and joy.

But occasionally I have to veer to another topic and look at the other side of health, fitness and feeling great - one of my sporting buddies, the fittest guy of the troop on the bike - just got diagnosed with ALS. ALS - Amyotrophic lateral ... Read More

Zurich2Venice

So from time to time, I am inspired to write not just about my own love of sports and keeping fit and healthy, but about the journey someone else takes.

I have this great friend, Roddy, that when we used to work together, would always be on the verge of starting a fitness regime. We'd travel around Europe together on business and he would "maybe" join me in the gym in the morning, or "almost" go on a run with me at 5am..but never quite make it. So we joked about it, and I teased him ... Read More

The Light in your Eyes…

During the summer I exercise outdoors as much as I can. The feeling of air and sun on your skin is the best there is and only enhances the work-outs I do.

More and more people are aware of the fact that the sun, whilst great and healthy and necessary in a lot of ways, can also be harmful to your skin and we are beginning to all plaster ourselves with the appropriate SPF's. But one thing you do need to be aware of when exercising outdoors is the effect on your eyes too! Your eyes are ... Read More

Tips from a Pro – Diets

Following my write-up yesterday, I am getting more and more feedback - thank you! It's interesting to see that whilst we collectively know quite a lot about fitness, and looking after our health, we still get totally fazed by all the myths that are out there. So Nando, PT and Masseur at 1-2-1 Trainers pulled some myths out of his healthy hat and asked me to share them with you.

Here's some of Nando's thoughts on food/diets:

There is so much misinformation out in the world today ... Read More

More on Energy

Ofcourse, there is a lot of other things that are non-scientific that give me energy - to name a few: being up and out in the woods so early the birds are just bursting into full song, smelling the rain after a thunderstorm, seeing hills and mountains at my horizon, petting my pet, great friends and positive people, achieving something I thought beyond me, that first sip of espresso in the morning, the power of words, as I read them or writing my blog... and ofcourse simply being with those I ...

Why am I writing this blog?

This blog is aimed at providing you with lots of information about health, fitness, sports and anything related.
