Fitness Reads of the Week

There really are SO many great fitness stories, blogs and discussions out there on the World Wide Web, and each week I hope to bring you some of the content I found most useful, entertaining and motivating.

I’ve posted four of my favs below, but you can always check out my Best Fitness Reads here

1) 23 Things That Inevitably Happen When You Start Getting Into Shape

Buzzfeed can really do no wrong, in my opinion anyway!

This article is hilariously accurate, and really does make you think about all the benefits of exercising and getting into shape.

I certainly am guilty of number 17, number 16 couldn’t be more truthful and number 23, well

2) What is the most accurate fitness gadget?

This is often a question I ask myself as I’m jogging past other runners who are kitted up with all sorts of wizz-bang technology. I for one can’t stand having anything attached to me when I’m sweating it out/struggling to breath, but I am always interested in finding out what I should be using.

Turns out some of these gadgets aren’t as accurate as they claim to be!

Who’s ever completed a workout session straight from YouTube? Me too, I actually do it quite often (Jillian Michaels’ workouts are one of my favorites_. The question as to whether online fitness will threaten gyms is questioned in this article, which I find really interesting.

The simplicity these days to film a workout, upload it to YouTube or to a personal blog or website allows fitness coaches and personal trainers to reach a much greater audience than any gym class ever could.

I am a member of a gym at the moment, but will I need to be in the future?

4) 75 Thoughts Every Runner Has While Out For A Run


I honestly could think of 75 more, but this is so hilariously true that you simply need to read it – particularly the argument about the pizza and the salad…

I’ll say no more, just check it out.
