The Wankerfication Of The Fitness Industry Part 1

Nardia Post Image

Everday I have to  remind myself of why I do what I do.   That is – why do I stay in the fitness/health industry when there are aspects of it that I absolutely despise?  I was faced with this question the other day as once again I was ranting on about the state of […]

Stop Being Your Own Worst Critic

Nardia Post Image

I caught myself doing something stupid the other day.  Something that I have not done in a very long time, the reason being that I have worked hard on overcoming the very thing that I caught myself doing.   (And no I wasn’t cracking a bottle of wine at 10am!)   What I was doing […]

Fitness is NOT about having big boobs, flat abs, a massive booty and flaunting oneself like a pornstar on Instagram.   Fitness is NOT about being super elite and ‘hardcore’.   Fitness is NOT just about sculpting the perfect body.   Fitness is NOT necessarily the same as health.   That was the overwhelming opinion […]

I say they are well intentioned because they offer some great ideas and tips, but for the most part they are […]

The Art of being selfish

 I learnt an extremely valuable lesson in the weekend.  I would love to claim that the lesson was completely from my own doing, but alas, it was not – it was Mr Man that forced my lesson. To say I have been working hard of late is a complete understatement.  Long days spend at the […]
