Have you ever done a dance class on a spin bike? I hadn’t either until a few days ago. One hour and 520 calories later, I was dripping in sweat and had learned a new dance routine to Craig David.
Groove Cycle Dance is everything that it says on the tin and a little bit more. You dance, you cycle, you have a good time and you leave feeling like you have just won the Tour de France and America’s Got Talent, at the same time. You dance whilst cycling and it’s as simple as that.
Running is a huge part of my daily life. If I’m not running, I’m talking about running or watching it on TV. I used to be a sprinter, then I became a long distance runner and recently life has taken a 360 degree turn and I have rediscovered a love for sprinting, 800m to be precise.
I run to maintain good cardiovascular fitness. I run because it allows me to escape from life and I run because I love to run. But there have been times where I have wished that I had more confidence to run.
You wake up after nine hours of solid sleep feeling tired. You are hit with an overwhelming feeling of fear every time you step on the treadmill and you repeatedly tell yourself “just one more rep” every time you try to complete an exercise on the floor. It’s Barry’s Bootcamp Hell Week and as challenging as it is, the feeling of utopia and the euphoric high that you feel after you completing seven workouts in seven days means that you know that you’ll be back again.
It would be completely wrong of me to say that I am always inspired to hit the gym and eat healthy because that isn’t always the case. Sometimes I skip the gym because I simply can’t be bothered and other times I’d much rather pick a burger and fries than a salad. I follow a healthy lifestyle but with temptation around every corner, my motivation slips from time to time. Which is fine, I am only human. If you’re struggling to stay motivated here are a few ways that I find fitness inspiration to help me to stay on track.

I’ve always read success books and watched Ted Talks but it’s only during the past few years that I have started paying attention to the words on the page and putting into action the tips and advice that the Ted Talks have to offer.
Sometimes I look at my life and think to myself “there is so much that I am yet to achieve” and then I have to gently remind myself that I am only twenty four years old and I still have a lot of living and growing to do. Since starting my blog, I have had a whirl wind of opportunities that seem to be steering me into the direction that I want to be heading in. I have managed to achieve a lot in a small space of time, but I have failed. I have failed time and time again but that doesn’t make me a failure. Each time I fall, I stand up tall, wear my biggest smile and try and try again.
Whether you are trying to start a blog, get a promotion or break into a new industry, here are a few tips that I practice every single day to ensure that the next time I fail, I am able to stand up and try again. And I hope that they help you to achieve your dreams.

Without sounding like a broken record, the thing I enjoy the most about being a blogger is that I get to cross paths and spend time with people who I probably wouldn’t have met otherwise.
Last week Adidas invited a handful of us down to Victoria Park for a Supper Club with Jackson and Levine. Adidas has recently created their first running shoe that has been designed specifically for women. And what better way to celebrate women and the new Pure Boost X shoe, than with an evening with good food, drinks and friends.
