General fitness announcements

A new study by Mintel has found that almost a third of Britons have cut back on their meat consumption.  Whilst the top influencing factor here was found to be meat-reduction campaigns, healthy eating bloggers and vloggers, such as Deliciously Ella, have also played  a part.

Gymshark have done it again – they’ve just launched a whole load of new clothing for men and women. This new range focuses largely on ‘outwear’, whilst also including the key pieces you’ll want for your daily workouts. The Gymshark men’s new releases includes pullovers, t-shirts, joggers, leggings and more. The Gymshark women’s new releases consists of sweaters, cycling shorts, sports bras, pullovers and leggings.

I feel for anyone with a nightmare commute. Train delays, buses put on, not able to get a seat, yada yada yada. For those feeling angry and frustrated, PlayOJO have teamed up with celeb PT, Charlie King, to offer up a stress relief workout that can easily be done in the office, at home or even when waiting for your train. All you’ve got to do is attack a punchbag for one minute – that should alone calm you down. Then do 15 star jumps, 15 push ups and then end up with two yoga poses; the tree and child’s pose.


Fitness events to attend!

The Royal Parks Half marathon takes place in Central London and takes in four of eight Royal Parks; Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’ Park and Kensington Gardens. The 13.1 mile route takes runners throughout the City and around famous landmarks, all on closed roads. While it’s too late to enter the ballot for the 14th October run, it’s not too late to grab yourself a space by running for charity. Over £36 million has been raised over the past nine years for almost 1,000 charities. These include Cancer Research UK, GOSH, Macmillan and Mind.

Running for the above charities will cost you £35 for your registration fee and all they ask if that you raise a minimum of £350 (Cancer Research UK have closed their entries).
