    Unleash your inner warrior

    You are stronger than you think. While you may underestimate your inner warrior, there is someone watching you in awe and amazement.

    Overcoming hurdles can define who you are

    Fitness is life-changing, life-saving and, more importantly, a lifestyle.

    We all can sit and reflect on why we may have started eating healthier, moving more. We all can reflect on a time when a huge hurdle was placed in our path and we...

    Body confidence and its barriers

    Body confidence is a mental construct that dictates what we wear, where we can go and what we do once we get there.

    Of course there are financial, cultural, political and moral factors that impact the validity of that opening statement but...

    Fitness is a continuum not an ultimatum

    When it comes to fitness, change is inevitable. How many times have you heard the following: “I am going to start working out again in two months” or, “I am going to lose X amount of weight”.

    Or maybe you’re more familiar with this one: “I...

    Can you out-train a bad diet?

    A resounding no and a questionable yes can come from this question.

    Let’s dig deeper into this idea. Your diet is incredibly important and the quality of that diet should be of the highest priority to you.

    However, your body weight...

    Ditch the kale and enjoy Cup Match

    It’s Cup Match time in Bermuda ... bacchanal! It’s one of my favourite holidays next to my birthday — yes, a holiday — and Christmas.

    The banter leading up to the game: Somerset (the best) versus St George’s; the Facebook memes, the...

    Time to get summertime fine

    June has finally arrived!

    I may have a slight bias since my birthday is next week, but this is clearly the best month.

    It marks the beginning of a Bermuda summer: carnival, cruises, raft-ups, barbecues, Cup Match, beach days, swizzle...

  • If at first you don’t succeed, try again

    If at first you don’t succeed, try again

    One thing that stands true is that this journey is far from linear. If plotted on a graph, it would be filled with upward lines, downward lines, even lines dictating a plateau, and that’s how it is for everyone, so don’t feel alone.

    To see real improvement, get yourself a swolemate

    Growing up, I used to run track, fell in love with it, received a scholarship, ran in university, graduated and then came back to Bermuda.

    During those many years of training and competing I was taught that this is not a team sport.

    Be true to your fitness journey

  • If you eat healthily, so will your children

    If you eat healthily, so will your children

    As one of six children, you can rightly assume that eating out at restaurants wasn’t a common thing at our house. My daddy was the “master chef and baker”.

    We had home-cooked meals at the dinner table.

    We took sandwiches made with...

    Rehabilitation strategies for muscle soreness

    Muscle soreness is not a prerequisite for fat loss or weight growth but, yeah, it’s inevitable.

    Many of us experience soreness and fatigue during, and after, a workout.

    Let’s talk about our favourite social lubricant.
