Yoga in the Sky: The Coolest Yoga Class in London

By | September 22nd, 2015|Categories: Guest Writer|Tags: , , |

Last week I went over to the Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch St, to do what can only be described as yoga in the sky! The Sky Garden is a beautiful indoor garden, with its own restaurant and bar, sitting almost 40 floors above London. Set behind the garden, is a unique space with views looking north over the City towards the Gherkin and beyond. Last Thursday morning that space was transformed into a yoga class for about fifty people of different abilities. Some people there were quite advanced, but even if you are complete beginner I would still highly recommend this class. I’m no yoga expert and even I managed not to tie myself in knots. It was actually an awesome and invigorating start [...]

Check out my MEAT!

Over the years while I've been refining my training [...]

The Arya Stark Journey

By | April 26th, 2015|Categories: Guest Writer|Tags: , , , |

Disclaimer: Arya Stark is one of the main characters in the popular hit HBO series Game Of Thrones.  If you don't watch the show, you may feel that this blog post has nothing to do with you. However, I'm going to outline why the story of Arya has many parallels with the average fitness journey. Her story along with the challenges she faces may help to guide you on your own journey to achieving your goals. The Complementary PT Session Aryas story starts off simple enough. She's the youngest daughter of a noble house, a tom boy with a short temper without a worry in the world. Arya experiences a few injustices at a young age and convinces her father that she's never going to [...]

Now is the time to set some goals and get cracking… The Christmas period is behind us, so it’s time to pack away the professional eating utensils and get yourself back to the gym and set yourself some 2015 goals.  No doubt many of you have set yourself goals which involve some sort of body transformation, entering a race, or just undoing some of the damage done at the latter part of 2014, but do you know how to set out about achieving these goals effectively? In the first ever Own Your Fitness newsletter, I will be looking at a few of common mistakes people make when trying to lose a bit of weight and get leaner.  These are the most common I’ve seen amongst gym [...]
