When it comes to buying the right pair of trainers, it can be a bit of a struggle. There are just so many to choose from and they all seem to have a different purpose. Well, I’ve made the search a little easier by picking out my fave three trainers to wear in the gym, on light runs (up to 5k) or even just for running errands. They’ll do the job all while looking super cute as well. What’s not to like!

Autumn Sportswear Picks
Autumn is upon us, meaning shorter, colder days and for a lot of us, less motivation to get active. If there’s one thing that’s going to get us in the mood for moving, that’s brand new activewear… right?!
I’ve said it before and will say it again, if you feel great in your sportswear then you’re more likely to workout harder, or at all. So just in time for the colder season, I’ve picked out my top sportswear buys that may be just what you need for that little extra push.

Run This City
Get up close and personal with your city all while getting fit! I love taking in the hustle and bustle of the streets, the infamous landmarks and continuous buzz of the London and what better way to do so than to go for a run.
Running is one of the most effective forms of exercise with a number of health benefits such as burning calories, improving stamina and strengthening muscles, including your core. Fab abs here we come! It makes the skin glow and I’m not talking about the sweat, although this is the reason behind it. Sweating clears your pores and increases natural oils, meaning less breakouts and healthier looking skin. And the benefits aren’t just physical. Running can improved memory, aid positive thoughts (no glass half empty business here!) and give you a better nights sleep!
No matter where you work, live or travel, exploring the area by going for a run is always a great idea. You’ll improve your fitness and may just stumble across a few hidden gems.
Oh and by the way, if you’re worried about the ‘running-is-bad-for-your-knees’ offenders, the truth is that there’s actually no significant evidence behind this. In fact, there’s actually proof that there’s little correlation between regular runners and osteoarthritis. Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise tracked 75,000 runners over 7 years and found no correlation between the two- including in marathon runners!!
Love your body, love your city, love your life. Go for a run.
