    Living life at speed, focused on work, running round after family, fitting in exercise etc means that we do everything with elevated stress levels. You might not feel stressed, you might thrive on the ‘buzz’ or even feel that you have no choice. However your physiological state is highly stimulated and flooded with hormones that are attempting to help you keep going. Unfortunately the down side is that our bodies are only meant to maintain this state for short periods of time. Think of it like a heating system that’s running on high water pressure …

  • Impressed by YOU

    Impressed by YOU

    Tracey-Anne started with Fitforlife from basics, there was a level of fear for new exercises and intensity which she has attacked and conquered with style! One example was the use of suspension training equipment. This core centred and balance based equipment requires a high level of focus and control to master, and is very challenging (and can be quite scary!).

    Back to normal now?

    Did the Beast from the East set back your health and fitness goals? It’s tough to stay active in cold weather at the best of times, but a thick layer of snow not only puts most of us off exercising outdoors, it also can make it difficult to eat well. I certainly felt like loading up the carbs and hybernating at times over the last few days! So what can we do to make sure we get it right and feel good at the same time during the colder more miserable weather?

  • Snow Running

    Snow Running
