I’ve been a fan of SKINS compression gear for longer than I care to remember, mainly because thinking about it reminds me of exactly how old I am these days. Since my very first pair, I’ve loved what the brand stands for. From championing LGBTI rights in sport in Australia, to highlighting the corruption of FIFA to increasing funding for anti-doping (including education at a grassroots level), SKINS is a brand that truly lives their vision – a world in which sport inspires society.
So you work out, but you’d like to give your derriere and the rest of the powerhouse that is your lower body a little extra attention, huh? Well then, have I got the thing for you!

Let’s be honest, December is not the best time of year for our health. With Christmas parties on every other night and many bootcamps beginning to wind down for the year, the ratio of good food and exercise to wine and hangover food starts to seesaw rapidly in the wrong direction.
OK so you’ve got all the lovely ladies in your life sorted for Christmas thanks to my spectacular 2016 Gift Guide for Her, but what about all the men-folk in your life? Surely these deserve something special this year as well! Well from workout gear to watches to wallets, from sunglasses to seriously cool overnight bags, I’ve got your back with my very special Gift Guide for Him. You’re welcome.
With Christmas a mere two weeks away, you’re likely to be sitting in one of two camps right now. You’re either a) feeling pretty smug as you survey all your neatly wrapped presents under the tree or b) you’re starting to panic.
Struggling to find summer treats that don’t make you a) super bloated b) ride a sugar rollercoaster or c) drunk ? Let me help you out with three healthy treats that are all delicious and – of course – nutritious.
This year, for the first time in many, many years, I’ve given up my big corporate gym membership. For me, it was more a safety blanket than anything else… my preference has always been to train outdoors, and/or in a smaller, more boutique environment. I bet there’s a lot of people out there in a similar position – holding onto a gym membership ‘just in case’ or because they really don’t know what the alternatives are. So today, in celebration of the termination of my long-standing contract, I’ve put together a list of five workout ideas that are excellent alternatives to a gym membership.
Summer is officially just one month away, and if you’re anything like the average Aussie, that means right about now the panic will start to set in. Now as you know, I don’t believe in extreme dieting or getting ‘beach body ready’ – I try to be more focused on being healthy and happy. But I totally get that you want to kick off summer feeling as fit, healthy and strong as possible! That’s why I’ve put together my top five tips for anyone who wants to get healthy and take their training up a notch over the next 31 days.
OK, so I want to preface this post by saying that I don’t have a baby of my own, so if anything I write here kind of makes you want to scream or throw something at me, then feel free to do so (although preferably not in real life because I’m actually quite sensitive).
My brother has been one of my best friends for pretty much all my life (there was a short period there before he was born that he didn’t make the cut for obvious reasons) and I’ve always thought he was an excellent human. Over the years he’s been an ally, a shoulder to cry on, a drinking partner, a constant support and plenty more. Now not to take away from all of that, but in the past few months I’ve met someone who’s infinitely cooler than my brother. My brother’s son.
