I have recently had the opportunity to review ‘The Ultimate HIIT Workout Book’, written by Steve Hoyles. Being a true HIIT-connoisseur, I was excited to try some of the workouts in this e-booklet. Who is Steve Hoyles? I know Steve from the UK Fitness Bloggers’ community on Facebook. Steve is not only an established fitness blogger himself, but also a personal trainer with over a decade’s worth of experience behind his back. (One thing we also share in common is that he is also a certified Kettlebell Trainer!) His philosophy is to use realistic, efficient approaches to fitness that help people achieve fantastic results without…

Every now and then, I come across people on social media who vent their frustrations over not seeing the results they want from following a HIIT programme, whilst others are posting impressive ‘before and after’ photos to show how it has transformed their bodies.

Kettlebells are my favourite equipment to workout with. I have always had a soft spot for them since I spotted them in the gym for the first time in 2008 – they were actually secured by a chain, preventing people from using them outside sessions with an experienced personal trainer. As we know, forbidden fruit tastes the sweetest, so from that moment on, I wanted to get acquainted with kettlebells more closely! Most recently, I have completed a Complete Kettlebell Trainer qualification through Future Fit, to top up my Level 3 Personal Trainer diploma and to take my relationship with the kettlebells I…

I chose to run the Grand Union Canal Half marathon as my third race this year, to help me get another step closer to achieving my ultimate goal of running 12 half marathons in 12 months. I was really upset last November when I could not run this race due to a knee injury (patellofemoral syndrome, if you are itching to know), therefore I got very excited when Purple Patch Running put on a special spring date to celebrate the 10th year anniversary of this race. I was certainly among the first runners out of about 300 to sign up. Another…
