Should you train when you're ill ? - Dr Folu Oluwajana

Should you train when you’re ill....well, it depends. I woke up with a terrible sore throat and blocked nose yesterday morning....but I still headed straight to the gym. The “neck rule” is a good rule of thumb to follow. If all your symptoms are above the neck, its likely you can still workout. For example, a runny or blocked nose, mild cough and sore throat.

It's totally normal, you can't expect to be motivated alllllll the time. There are a few things that I did at the start of my journey and still do to keep me consistently in the gym and hitting my goals. 1. Write down your goals - long and short term!

Finding the right active wear

Blog Post by: Morayo Abiola  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/morayoabiola   I think it's so important to work out in comfy, cute and supportive pieces. It has taken me a while to know which brands produce the best quality clothes at reasonable prices, so I thought I'd write a post about my favourite sportswear brands and reasons why I love them so much to help anyone looking for some new gym wear.   DAMIHOW If you follow me on instagram, I'm sure you would have seen me raving about this brand but it is honestly my fave. Very affordable, the designs are unique and the sets are super flattering. My fav item is the zip up biker shorts - only £18. For anyone looking...
