You may all remember that in March we all undertook a 24 hour Assault bike challenge, which was fairly tiring to say the least!
Well.... clearly my memory of how hard it was is pretty vague, as I’ve now got 5 weeks until I undertake a 25 hour Cycling challenge!
We have also added Kombucha to the fridge.
What the hell is Kombucha I am sure some of you are thinking?
Well, Kombucha is a fermented drink that is full of healthy bacteria that is good for the gut.Read More
Tuscany was for a wedding, an old client of mine and also a lovely friend of both Lou and I. For me, a wedding means covering myself in colourful woollen garments and layering it up. Kilts are not ideal in 30 degrees, for the first time I was chasing the shade.Read More
While away I started swimming again. I’ve never loved swimming in a pool, I find it tedious following a black line up and down, repeatedly. However out in the sea, and swimming for 2km a day roughly, I loved it. So nice to be in the most perfect blue water.Read More
Launching this week we are going to be providing “social loyalty” cards for all of our members.
“What’s that?” I hear you ask
Well, like a good coffee shop, we have created a loyalty card but with a difference.Read More
I love Fulham, we lived in a very residential area which was super peaceful but where we are in CJ is ridiculously handy for restaurants, shops, etc. I used to walk to work in 12 mins, now I use a Boris bike which is fun but I'm yet to do it in the rain and I’m very much a fair-weather cyclist.Read More
Over the last three years it has grown into something truly special and this weekend was one of the best.
200+ gym owners and PT’s, some members, some not, gathered together to listen to numerous talks from some of the absolute best in the fitness industry.Read More
It yet again showed the London fitness scene just how amazing our community is and that we can stand shoulder to shoulder with the big boys and more than hold our own.Read More
The pubs were fun, but they had no slimline tonic in sight and the beer was super cheap, £2.50 a pint. When you have a bloke leading a stag holding the kitty, you have very little say (no say) in what you get other than a beer. Any attempt at ordering a ‘Skinny Bitch’ (my mums name for a vodka soda) would be met with savage abuse. Sometimes you either have to put your foot down and take the ridicule, or accept that you can’t have success at every attempt.Read More
On Saturday I went way off piste ( for me anyway)... I travelling ALL the way to Mile End. Haha. A long way from South West London... *Ash rolling his eyes again*
It was the All Points East music festival, which was pretty good, some new artists id not heard before, and then Mumford and Sons were the headline act; who are amazing. A good fun vibe, but pretty chilled day and evening.
He had fractured both his shins, but knew he couldn’t quit his training so taped up his ankles and shins with duct tape to be able to continueRead More
There were kilts, bagpipes, scotty dogs, big burly men tossing the caber (Google it) and tug o war (back to Google).
The only Scotch thing that was missing was the egg!!Read More
After a chilled Saturday spent watching an epic game of rugby, having a glass of wine and some ice cream (it’s all about balance), though as I was told by at least a few of you - I had turned into Bridget Jones!Read More
So, after having a fantastic March in terms of training, it seems the 24 hour assault bike did me in!
April has been a bit hit and miss. I have trained here and there but some of these sessions haven’t had maximum effort put in by me.Read More
We raised awareness like you wouldn’t believe and at the time of writing this our total donations stand at £7,209.91… and that is before adding on the gift aid which will take it over the £8k mark. This actually puts us in the top 1% of fundraisers in March out of 40266 fundraisers on Just Giving. Not bad hey.Read More
Alongside cooking more, I have started to learn Spanish. It’s not going that well as I don’t seem to be remembering anything but I am determined to get better as my sister lives in SpainRead More
The four of us will be taking on a 24 hour Assault Airbike Challenge. For those of you who come to Evolve, or train elsewhere, and have gotten acquainted with the assault bike you know that one minute on this bit of kit can be torture, let alone 24 hour hours.Read More
What an incredible first few days, after a very long 36 hours to get here, I went straight out to Caye Caulker to join up with all the guys from the wedding. An idyllic island that was split into halves by a hurricane, it’s a 45 minute boat ride from Belize City. Populated by lots of small bars, restaurants and beach bars its got a very cool vibe, a relaxed Caribbean feel.Read More
Well firstly, for those of you who don’t know, I had a little accident involving the tip of my finger and the assault bike.
Before you start to panic, it was a user error, not something you can do when you’re on the bike it so don’t start thinking you won’t be using it ever again.Read More
