In the past when I have purchased fitness supplements, I have always gone online to a well known supplement store or popped into a bodybuilding store. However the game has totally changed - Superdrug stock the big names in the fitness industry meaning I don't have to wait around for a week to get my supplements delivered; I can just pop into town and get them that day. Even better - I can get points on my Beauty Card! They are making the diet and fitness industry a lot more accessible and enabling customers to purchase their protein along side their lip liners in the same...

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...

Going to the gym and leading an active lifestyle can be amazing, however one downside is the aches and pains that you get during and after your exercise. I am a firm believer of doing everything I can to prevent this and have looked at many ways to reduce DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). 

With foam rolling, heat rubs, hot baths and even an attempt at an ice bath being up there on my list of ways to conquer this, I was very excited to hear about PERNATON®. Their products are made with the original Perna extract of the New Zealand green-lipped Mussel (perna canaliculus)...

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...

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...

Managing endometriosis is difficult. The amount of tablets and interventions I have tried is tiring, and yet still I am in pain daily. The food that we eat however, can have an effect on the pain that we feel and the symptoms of endometriosis. Previously, I have written a blog about endometriosis and gluten >Read Here< so I have furthered this research and I have put together all that I have found so far when looking into the perfect diet for endometriosis. 

Everything that I have read, has led to the notion that all inflammatory foods need to be avoided. When we can reduc...
