As I say so often, exercising is free! All you need is the motivation to get going! Unfortunately this is something we all, at one time or another suffer from - lack of motivation. So how do you stay focussed, how do you overcome that voice in your head that says, "ah I donʼt feel like it", "ah Iʼll do it tomorrow", or later in the day (which as you and I both know... it never happens!)

As a child I was always desperate to have a dog, I can remember pestering my poor mum time and time again for a puppy. That was in addition to the pony, that I was sure could live in my bedroom – ahhhh the innocence of children!
There is something very special about the unconditional love that both children and dogs give you. You just can’t help but feel happy when you are in the presence of happiness itself. Nothing acts as a better pick me up than children laughing just for the sake of it, or a dog having a funny five minutes charging around, simply because it has a burst of energy that it just can’t control or contain.
Hannah and Joshua love our Chocolate Labrador Bentley. They love running around the garden with him and Hannah is always keen to come on daily dog walks.
Yesterday I decided to take Bentley and the children for a walk through a park with a wooded area, which is ideal for exploring. The challenge was the undulating path, which was incredibly bumpy in places due to tree roots and once again the Terrain did not disappoint as it made easy work of the woodland floor and steep slopes. The pneumatic tyres are just superb. Knowing how easy they make walking in this kind of environment, I could never go back to any other pushchair.
We are lucky to have some fantastic walks right near the house and the Mountain Buggy Terrain has proved to be invaluable on many occasions. One of Joshua’s favorite places is near the river; the water just seems to call him. Maybe he will grow up to be a famous sailor, discovering uncharted waters or perhaps a marine biologist diving in the gorgeous waters of the tropics.
I often look at both Hannah and Joshua and wonder just who they will become and what changes to this world they will make. Ultimately, Iike any parent, I just want them to be happy, to enjoy the wonders of life and be able to treat everything they experience as a gift and an opportunity for growth. That would be an amazing thing indeed…..

So you had a baby, and along with all of the coos and cuddles, oohs and aahs, comes the realization that maybe you should get some fresh air! Some exercise maybe? A stroll in the park? How about a light hike on the trail? All sound like great ideas for new moms, but will your stroller live up to your newly found active mommy lifestyle? Being active before, during and especially after pregnancy is vital to any new mom’s overall well-being. Including your baby in outdoor activities is a great way to regain that pre-pregnancy shape and ward off the baby blues.

Do you feel inspired and excited by the Olympics? Wow, I am! I’ve been glued to events I never even thought about before, like diving! Who’d have thought it's was such an incredible event?! I was blown away by the opening ceremony - it brought a positivity to people that was long overdue.

Sounds corny, but the only way to start is, as Nike says, Just do it! Get up, get out, get energised! I guarantee you, by just moving your body, getting the blood flowing, filling the lungs with fresh air and oxygen, and moving your joints... you're halfway there!

There is something so invigorating and reviving about spending the day in the fresh air and what better place than one of the most beautiful parts of the New Forest National Park - Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary.

On January 14, 2012, I qualified for my third Olympic Team, becoming the oldest winner of the Olympic Marathon Trials at 37 years of age. While most Olympians peak in their early to mid-twenties, I am running my personal best times at above the age of 35. I am married and the father of three young girls ages 2, 4, and 6. How do I balance my competitive running with family? It takes a balancing act and support.

Being a mom is a full time job. Add a full time job to that, and you may wonder how to find time for anything, let alone fitness. Being a full time working mom who would like to maintain her sanity, requires careful planning and execution. Organizing your home life just as you do your work life won’t give you more hours in your day, but it will help you be more productive with your available hours. Here are my tips to help working moms stay organized and find time for fitness.
