5 signs you may be addicted to the gym

When most people hear the word addiction, one of two things automatically spring to mind: drugs or alcohol. It’s easy to associate the word addiction with a substance because when we look at the top most common addictions, both drugs and alcohol rank quite high up in the echelon. Due to the high-tech age we are currently living in, social media addiction would probably cross your mind also. As would ...

From a young enough age,  I accepted that chronic back pain will always be an issue for me.  I first became accustomed to lower back pain around the time when I started menstruating and it has since then became such a normal part of my life.

5 exercises for toned legs

  I’m often complimented on how toned my legs are. If it’s not ‘your legs have a lovely shape,’ it’s ‘oh my God, they’re so toned.’  Either way, they do get attention – more attention than my "booty gains" ever will!

I for one know all too well about this - especially on the alcohol side of things! After having spent a week in Portugal, I think this article and ...

8 ways to motivate yourself to exercise

Finding the motivation to get up and get moving doesn’t come naturally to everyone. Thankfully, I am a morning person who also happens to like Mondays. I know, I know, I sound like the devil right now! But I promise you, Mondays and early mornings really aren’t that bad!
