Our health is of utmost importance, yet so many of us don’t give it the attention it deserves. We all lead such busy lives that things like exercising and eating healthily kind of fall to the wayside. Yes, that may be fine for you now, but how are you going to be in 10, 20, 30 years time? During our...

A couple of months ago I posted a survey to see who you (my audience) are and what your struggles are when it comes to living a fit and healthy life. You’ll be pleased to hear that you aren’t alone in these struggles – there are some definite clear winners when it comes to the challenges you all fac...

You’ve made the decision that you need to improve your health and fitness – step one done! But it’s the next step that’s the hardest – actually getting started.
