    Rest as important as working out for health

    Many assume that being a gym rat, eating well and maintaining 10 per cent body fat equates to complete wellness.

    In actual fact, rest, recovery, indulging every so often, acknowledging your human side, visiting your doctor, meditating (or...

  • Catharsis in every rep: find your ‘why’

    Catharsis in every rep: find your ‘why’

    Is it through vanity? A medical practitioner’s orders?

    Is it for fun or just to socialise?

    Did a family member or friend persuade/guilt-trip you into doing it?

    Perhaps it’s simply for the naked definition of...

    Don’t just step on a scale

    Measuring progress — it isn’t black and white! So many times clients approach me with worry — worry that the scale isn’t moving. Sigh, right?

    Clients, both male and female have this never-ending battle with the scale. Truthfully, if I could...

    Stop feeling bad about indulging

    Let’s be real, it’s summer time and we all know that a Bermuda summer is jam-packed with parties, alcohol, barbecues and all-around good vibes.

    We just finished celebrating emancipation last weekend, Cup Match.

    I’m sure we all enjoyed...

    Stretching an important part of routine

    Have you been guilty of skipping your cool down or your after-workout regime of stretching? Let’s talk.

    Stretching is probably the most boring thing to do. Personally, I’d rather redo the entire workout than stretch for 15...

    Do what works for you

    Don’t eat carbs. Lift weights. Run ten miles. Never skip a workout; take supplements; drink water; post Instagram-worthy abs ... sound familiar?

    These are some of the guidelines many believe to be the only way to lose weight, remain healthy...

    Kenrick’s fitness transformation

    When providing “fitspiration” for my clients and readers, it often appears that women are highlighted more than men.

    Men go through transformations, they have struggles and success stories, but we don’t always acknowledge...

    Deneka bounces back after serious injuries

    Last article, I highlighted a client who has made tremendous headway in her fitness and wellness journey. Sometimes, it isn’t about aesthetic goals, weight loss or gain. Sometimes it is simply about movement, regaining strength after some time...

  • ‘You don’t have to give up everything’

    ‘You don’t have to give up everything’

    It’s always great to hear from a fitness enthusiast, professional or someone who seems to have it all together.

    However, I find it more helpful to hear how a “normal” person is progressing with their wellness journey. I’m positive it’s...

    Work out your life as well as your body

    They say athletes, or those deeply into fitness, develop a healthy philosophy about achievement and an ability to tolerate setbacks when they occur.

    Every so often I share my story, my thoughts, my insight into this fitness and wellness...

    Stress less about getting the perfect look

    A few weeks ago, my fellow fitness enthusiast shared with you all her experience after running an amazing 5K.

    Betty Doyling was “feeling pretty good” about herself until a gentleman who watched the race told her she could be unstoppable —...

    Find your sole mate!

    How often do you stand or walk? I’m going to guess that it’s most of your waking day.

    Your feet are in a constant relationship with gravity and those actions that most of us are well acquainted with, such as running, walking and simply...

    Important to respect the plateau

    Sometimes our fitness journey doesn’t go as planned. Sometimes the weight won’t drop, the inches won’t decrease (or increase — some of us want leg gains).

    Sometimes your body has had enough. Sometimes life … just … sucks.

    Does it...

    Aim for progress, not perfection

    “If you saw your body on someone else you’d think they were amazing, but because it’s your body you see only flaws and hate it.”

    Hey Fitfam, happiest Wednesday to you all.

    Today isn’t so much about teaching you anything, nor...

    Work hard and start changing your body composition

    This is a friendly reminder to stay active and to keep in mind that three out of seven is usually a fail in most standardised testing.

    Please don’t score a three out of seven for your weekly nutrition and workouts.

    Loving yourself is first step to becoming happy

    Sometimes it’s hard to find time for myself. Sometimes I put my clients first, sometimes I eat the pizza, sometimes I lift the weights, sometimes I run the miles, sometimes I eat the pizza (again). LOL.

    But all the time I fall deeper and...

    Seriously, you don’t have to look like a man

    It is a common misconception that if a woman lifts weights she will end up looking like a man. How? Will she grow an Adam’s apple? Will her voice deepen? Will she grow a pair? Most definitely not.

    Still, I hear it all the time: “If I train...

    ‘Bounce back’ at your own pace

    So you’ve had your baby. Now what?

    While I’m not a mom yet, I do get asked for advice about post-partum weight loss and have clients fresh from the delivery room (after doctor sign-off).

    So what is the real deal? Can you snap back...
