Review of SKINS K-Proprium Tights

SkinsI’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.

OK guys. I’m not normally into The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, but given that’s it’s pretty much impossible to live life without seeing it plastered across social media, television and news sites (can someone please explain that one?), I’ve decided to embrace it… sort of.

28-Day Abs Challenge

Abs Workout

Two years ago I put together the first of my online fitness challenges. It was called the 28-Day Abs Challenge, and to this day it remains one of the most popular things on the LGF website. The only thing is that it’s now a little… clunky. It ran over four weeks, as six separate posts and, well, it’s just not exactly the most user-friendly thing out there. And what does that mean? Well Team, it’s just had a makeover.

6 Active Date Ideas

date ideas
When I first started seeing Karn, one of my favourite things was the adventure dates he would plan for us. It was such a nice change from the old meal or drinks-related date ideas (although we’ve had a lot of those too!) and a really great way to get to know each other outside of the ‘usual’ date situations. It was also an excellent way to test whether he was brave enough to tackle my overly-competitive nature. [side note: thankfully he was.]

Last-Minute City2Surf Tips

City2Surf
I don’t know how it happened, but the City2Surf is only five days away. Given that my preparation in 2016 has consisted mainly of eating croissants and ice cream in Paris and drinking hot coffee/chocolate/tea/anything-to-keep-warm in Iceland, I have a feeling this is not going to be the year I set a PB. In fact, for the first time in a long time, I’m mildly concerned about making it to the finish line with my body in one piece.

6 Reasons You Should Buy a Jump Rope

Jump rope
Not many things remind me of being a kid quite like skipping. As far as memories-everyone-can-relate-to go, I would put it right up there on the same level as the Home Ice Cream van, Art Attack and coloured zinc cream. Maybe that’s why I don’t find skipping to be too much of a chore… even when I’m whipping myself around the ankles and swearing loudly under my breath, I can’t stop grinning.

Are You Moving Enough?

Exercise

Last week I wrote a post titled Things Fit People Do Differently, and number one on the list was that ‘they find reasons to move, instead of excuses not to’. The more I thought about it, there more I realised how important this tip was, but also how vague – particularly for people who aren’t used to looking for reasons or ways to move. So I’ve decided to expand on it, with some more simple exercise tips that will  help you to add more movement to your life.
