Happy VE Day! Another scone anyone? I hope you have enjoyed a neighbourly or family VE Day 75th Anniversary celebration today with a few tasty scones or Victoria Sponge with a nice cup of tea.

What are the positives? 😊

bristol personal trainer
I have to admit I have felt moments of boredom in the last few days. The rainy change to the weather didn't help, but here I am on a gorgeous walk near my house on a bluebell bedecked hill in my waterproof gear. It was drizzling and the sky was very grey, but it was so refreshing to get out of the house and exercise in beautiful surroundings. 'Green exercise' has been shown to be more ben...

Electric (e) bikes have become really popular in the last year or so and even more so now that we are in lockdown and exercise is the only thing we are permitted to do outside of the house and garden. If you've ever considered having one, now may the time to indulge yourself. The mountain bike community are appreciative of them, accepting that it's a way for riders to continue to push the...

Things to do in your garden – Number 1 – play badminton

bristol personal training
What can you do as a family in your back garden? Many things, including the brilliant, energetic badminton. Whilst the sun shines, and the wind stays calm, badminton is a fine choice for activity. Most people can take part, young or old. It can be competitive if you have a net and can score, or just knock about until you're shattered. There's plenty of lunging, reaching, stretching overhead, ...

Notwithstanding the heartache that Covid-19 is producing, the awful worry it is causing, the huge impact it is having on our life as we know it, I think we can make the most of the enforced free time. I took the above pic yesterday when out on a solo bike ride through country lanes, in beautiful sunshine. I was taken by the gorgeous crocuses glimmering brightly as I sped / meandered past an...
