Diastasis Recti and Form

I hurt my back while exercising recently. I was in the middle of a deadlift and then I felt a pain in my lower back. For someone who exercises frequently and loves deadlifts, it seems strange but it happened. I can’t explain how, but I didn’t focus on form and therefore hurt my back. It’s…

Structure = Freedom

Having structure in my life makes a huge difference. It may seem inflexible, but I find it quite helpful and it also gives me the freedom to vary things too. Some don’t like structure because it’s normally associated with rigidity. However, this is far from the truth. When I started exercising at home, I did…

Every body part is important

Whilst exercising at bootcamp on Wednesday, I fell and hurt my wrist. Coach Ojoi attended fo it immediately and I felt better. However, the pain became worse during the day, I was hardly able to concentrate and ended up going to the hospital to have it checked out. It was my left wrist that was…

Not afraid of the rain 🌧

I had frequent asthma attacks growing up. They were triggered by things like dust, moisture, strong smells, fumes, drastic change in weather and being in the rain for only a few seconds. Some attacks were mild, others left me hospitalized or at home for a few days. In a bid to avoid asthma attacks, I…

Love your body

For me, there’s nothing like exercising outdoors. To breathe in fresh air, to enjoy the calmness, possibly some scenery … Mornings work best for me and so joining Coach Ojoi’s bootcamp January last year was perfect. Started off as a 3month life coaches bootcamp which challenged us to exercise at least 5 days a week…

How much do you love yourself?

How much do you love yourself? Do you know what it really and truly means to love yourself? Do you have what it takes to love yourself? Can you take on self love? Are you ready to love yourself? We are all able to love ourselves. Restrictions have however been placed on us by our…

Don’t overthink it, just do it

A group of us arrived at bootcamp on Monday and our coach was unavailable. We decided we wouldn’t let the this opportunity go amiss, we would still  exercise. Someone asked who would lead us and my name was put forward. I was a bit scared, unsure I would be able to lead the session but…

Consistency

Consistency is one of my watchwords for 2018. Yes, I know it’s been on the list in the last few years, but it’s going to keep being there. The why is simple – to excel at anything, consistency is key. Yes, we all know this, but do we really apply this? If only we choose…

The journey to a fitter, better me

We have all heard the phrase ‘health is wealth’ thrown around. I however often wonder if we really understand what it means. Health simply refers to fitness of the mind, soul and body. If the mind is unwell, then one is unhealthy. Last year, I joined a fitfam fellowship group (YES, fitfam fellowship). Not because I was obese,…
