My fitness journey started about a year ago. After having two children and never having the chance to put myself first, I knew this needed to change because my self-confidence and general health was not where it should have been.
Signing up for gym classes and having the motivation to go for a run after school drop off was not a problem, but what did bother me is what I looked like. I am not a vain person- most days I leave the house without any make-up on, but for some reason, the thought of my wobbly bits on show when I exercised made me feel really self-conscious! Having the right workout clothes was so important, but at the start it was hard finding the balance [...]
I think it’s fair to say that the release of Fitbit was a huge step forward, a manufacturer who has te goal to create the best fitness smart tracker available. Since its launch, Fitbit have brought out a range of different models to suit all budgets and training levels.

I’ve never been a huge fan of the word diet. It just sounds so boring and restrictive. Now I don’t know about you, but lack of food choice and freedom is not something I’m after. You don’t need to compromise on taste and eat boring salads all day; you’re not a rabbit after all.
A few simple lifestyle and dietary changes can help cut out the excess and unwanted fat, meaning you can still eat the food you like, just the lighter version. We’ve put together a list featuring a few of our favourite handy kitchen gadgets, which can help us do just that – all without breaking the bank.Air Fryers, the perfect companion

Like me, I’m sure many of you have made the pledge that starting January 1st, you’ll ditch the chocolates, put down the alcohol, and buy that gym membership you’ve been avoiding for so long. This is it, the first day of a healthier and more active you.
Roll forward two months and that gym membership starts to gather dust as life gets in the way. Maybe the gym is too crowded, too expensive or too much of an inconvenience to get to on a regular basis. Maybe the darker and colder evenings just aren’t your thing, or maybe you’ve got a family and the gym just isn’t a priority.
Whatever the reason, the going to the gym lifestyle just isn’t working for you. So instead [...]

A moderate rowing machine that will suit those on a budget, but may leave serious fitness users a little less than satisfied. A simple setup based on a hydraulic pump as resistance.Delivery and setup
No delivery was required for the Opti Manual rowing machine , its weight was only around 15kg’s and the packaging would be easy for the majority of people to carry back to their car without any help.
There is some assembly required, bolting the base, seat and hydraulic handle system takes up the majority of time. The process took around 25 minutes from start to finish and our rowing machine was complete.Guaranteed [...]

There used to be a simple rule- to gain results you had to buy a gym membership and devote a large part of your spare time to going multiple times a week. Today, I am going to challenge that rule and explain why there has never been a better time to create your own gym experience at home.
Helping you to save time
Time is the world’s most valuable currency, time is precious, and anything that helps you to obtain your desired results in less time should be high up on your priority list.
Typically you would have to travel the gym, hope that the equipment you need to use is free, complete your workout and then return home. For many this would be classed as an evening [...]
