Joint care is not something that many people are familiar with, nor are they too sure on how to actually take care of them! Having completed my MSc in Strength and Conditioning and since trained many elite professional athletes as well as the public, I know too well the harsh impact that living an active life can have on your joints. In this post sponsored by FlexiQule™, I explain how you can easily make a change and ensure the best heath for your joints. 

FlexiQule™ undertook a survey* that revealed that over half of the Brits who experience every-day joint pain (e.g. bac...

It is blood pressure awareness month and the perfect time to reveal that most of us have absolutely no idea what our blood pressure is at any given time. According to a survey by Kinetik Wellbeing, only 40% of millennials out of the 2000 participants asked, could determine what a healthy blood pressure reading is, whereas older generations had more of an idea. With a predicted 16 million people having high blood pressure and only seven million of those knowing about it, it seems that there needs to be more education around our blood pressure readings - especially in mille...

Vitamin Coffee is an incredible way to combine your daily essential vitamins with your morning coffee fix. Gone are the days that you forget to take all those tablets to ensure the best health - you can now get it from one cup of coffee! 

Most people have a preferred taste to their coffee, they either like it really strong or they prefer a milder taste; but not many people have a preference on vitamins! Vitamin Coffee offers a choice of both roast type AND vitamin preference to ensure that it fits in with your lifestyle. There are 3 different vitamin blends, (Complete, Ene...

Body shaming is bad enough in itself. The fact that social media has become its chief purveyor makes it worse, because of the vast reach of Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Social media has made it easier for people to vilify, mock, or criticise the shape, size, and body features of anyone who puts up a public photo.
 

As I explained previously in my ‘Body Shaming - The Truth’ post, body shaming comes in all forms, and it is, unfortunately, affecting the youth the most. It was, in fact, voted by approximately 1 million people as one of the top 10 issues in the UK Youth Pa...

For the entire month of June I attempted to improve my fitness through a supplement that I had never tried before. I was so excited to be gifted a month's worth of CocoaVia as part of a trial to see whether it made any difference in my training or my general activity levels. 

So, what is CocoaVia? Simply put, it is a cocoa extract food supplement that has been backed by 20 years of science! Science has shown that the benefits linked to chocolate are usually down to the mixture of phytonutrients within the cocoa, called cocoa flavanols. This unique mixture within the cocoa...

When you’re looking for a good workout plan, it can seem almost impossible to find the right one for you. With all of them claiming to be the ‘perfect’ routine, how do you know which one will really benefit you?

This is a guest post by Proactiv.

Exercise is an all-rounder when it comes to good health. It can make you live longer, stay healthier, feel better about your body and happier about your life. Most of us need to get more exercise than we currently do but, what about those for whom exercise is already a big part of their lives? Athletes are people who think about exercise as more than an occasional hobby. It’s a way of life.

If you fall into this category, it’s likely that you regularly think about the effects exercise has on your body and can see its many benefits. But, wh...

Superdrug have launched an amazing new range called “Some Body”. They have flavoured water, protein powder and even yummy snack bars that are full of natural ingredients. 

I was so pleased when I was sent some of the range to try! 

The first product that I was sent was a Mojito flavoured water! Now I was unsure how this would taste as I’m a big fan of a Mojoito and couldn’t work out how it would actually taste like the amazing cocktail! I can confirm this water actually tastes like the refreshing cocktail that you would expect from a cocktail bar! The fizzy sensation makes...

Body Shaming = mocking people for the shape or size of a persons body. This also extends to not just the shape or size, but individual features on ones body. Now this is something that most of us experienced at school, and it's often seen as something that whilst going through puberty that you are going to inevitably get. But my question is, why? Why are we almost expecting to be called names at school? Most importantly, why, when we are all adults, are we still being targeted by body shaming? 

Now I am going to start off by being 100% honest with you all as always. I have...

As a personal trainer and fitness blogger, I am always having protein shakes, literally daily. Anyone else that has protein shakes will be aware of a few common problems with a protein shaker. 

Firstly, they always leak - like always. Whether it is just a little bit of water down the sides after you have washed it out, or bits of sticky protein water fly out as you shake it, they always seem to find a way to leak.

Secondly, I often forget to take the mixing ball or mixing mesh with me, so end up with a bottle, that doesn't mix my protein. With the mesh still sat in my draw...
