Training is often viewed as only applicable for learning new skills and so employers do not always deem it necessary for some roles. The reality is that training delivers so much more. Absolutely, it builds new skills and increases knowledge - however, it also helps to reinforce the confidence in individuals, helping them to recognise their own capabilities.

It's Okay If You Aren't a 'Proper Runner'

The appeal of a Running Club is clear. Safety in numbers can be literal (attacks on lone runners are a sad reality) but it can also be a kind of solidarity. You're not the only one wondering how much of your underwear is visible through Lycra - there's two dozen just like you coming down the path.

Getting superhero lean isn't easy. It isn't even moderately easy... but that's a good thing. If it was easy, everyone would have a next level six-pack and that would make you just another person in great shape. As the challenge is hard and the results take effort, few people will achieve their dream body.

The Best Investment You'll Ever Make

A lot of people switch off when someone tells them they should 'love what they do' but I genuinely find it shocking that anyone would fulfil a role for 35 hours a week that does not leave them feeling satisfied, valued and content.

Getting Out of Your Own Way

It's time to cut the crap in more ways than one. Vince Lombardi has been for many years a hero of mine. I was so surprised and delighted that many of the things he had achieved and had said made it into my friend's wedding just last week.

But How? Finding Your Clarity of Purpose

Do we ever truly know what we want? For some yes definitely, maybe not across every aspect of their lives but in business, fitness or with relationship standards and then goals, having a clear sense of purpose will be the deciding factor on whether you are successful or not!

In an age where economies are shrinking, the differences between these two services from the perspective of the driver are severe. Essentially, it comes down to diametrically opposed scenarios: in one the driver needs to pass time-consuming, rigorous and expensive tests, in the other, you have a dude with a mobile phone.

It is the night before my first marathon and, much like many other things I do, I have stumbled into it blithely unaware of what I am actually doing and just sort of hoping for the best. This being so, I have decided to share my fountain of marathon wisdom (in list format - who doesn't love a list?!) with anyone thinking of doing one themselves.

Nothing does or will ever justify public library cuts and school library cuts. Library cuts are unacceptable in the twenty-first century, in a modern country like Britain, and they should simply be made unlawful!

Since the start of the World Cup in earnest, I haven't had much game time during the opening week. So whilst at home the other day on my day-off I decided to do a little top-up session. I roped my girlfriend, Chloe, into the session, which I wouldn't normally do, as I intensely dislike all the rubbish you see up on Instagram and Twitter, about couples who train together, apparently staying together!
