Fitbit Alta HR Review

A while back I did a review of the Fitbit Charge 2 and it was such a popular post. So much so, that I’ve teamed up with Fitbit to bring you a review of the new Fitbit Alta HR. While I loved my Charge 2, there were a few issues I had in regards to the size and bulkiness on…

Recovery Drinks + My Lululemon Obsession

Lululemon is one brand I was a bit late to the party with, but now absolutely love. I bought my first Lululemon piece at the start of this year, and it’s safe to say I’m now obsessed. Yes, it’s a little pricier, but the pieces are so stylish and made from the best fabrics, so it’s definitely worth it. Today’s…

Why Workout Gloves Are A Good Idea

Since I’ve started doing weights at the gym, my poor hands have taken a beating. Yes, I’m probably a bit of a wuss, but I’m definitely a girly girl and my hands are pretty soft. The continual picking up and lifting of weights has meant that I’ve ended up with some pretty nasty blisters and calluses as a result. Not…

Current Lower Body Workout

Following on from my Upper Body Workout Routine, here is what exercises I do when I want to train my lower body. Leg day for me is always the hardest as I still have issues with my left leg from an operation I had on it ten years ago. They cut through the muscle near my knee and I still…

Current Upper Body Workout

I’ve been at the gym over five months now! Man time has flown and over the months I’ve worked out what things I enjoy doing and the best ways to do them. It’s been a bit of a learning curve, but I feel like I’ve finally settled into a workout routine that I love. I try to go to the…

I Cancelled My Gym Membership?

I know what you’re thinking….Sarah you’ve just been telling us how much you love the gym and you’ve gone and cancelled your membership? Why!? Well, I’ve decided to swap gyms so I’ve ended my membership at Anytime Fitness Dunedin Central in order to change to Moana Pool Gym. I’ve done this for a number of reasons…. First up, my boyfriend…

Getting Active With Fitwear

Before I started going to the gym, I didn’t really own any activewear. When I was mucking around the house, I’d just usually wear a pair of PJ pants or jeans, and if I went for a walk I’d wear my one pair of leggings that I owned. When I started working out, I wanted to look cute while I…

Wait, I Put On Weight?

So it’s been about two and a half months since I joined the gym, and I’ve been trying to go 4-5 times a week at the moment, and I’ve actually managed this most weeks!  I’ve  really surprised myself with how dedicated I’ve become to going, and how much fun I’m actually having as I am definitely not a sporty person! I…

Wait, You’re Supposed To Rest Between …

When I wrote my first couple of fitness blog posts, I wasn’t really planning to make them a regular thing however they’ve been so well received by you all (in fact, they’re some of my most popular posts!), so I’ve decided to keep this series going. I’m by no means good at the gym, I’m a total beginner and I’m…

I Joined A Gym?

Today I joined a gym. Which to most people probably isn’t a biggie, but for me it’s massive. I’ve never been a sporty person, and while I do like keeping fit (aka going for walks), I’ve been a bit slack lately. I’ve always toyed with the idea of joining a gym, however I knew finding the time to actually go…
