During the years playing rugby week in week out, endless drills and lifting/throwing big weights around, I realise now more than ever that the key to my physical and mental development primarily depended on 3 things..
1) What I put in my body (Nutrition) - If I felt energetic, I would work harder than ever.
2) The way I was training my body - If I felt strong and fast, I was unstoppable.
3) Which kit was being used - If I trusted the equipment and kit I was using, I was confident I had the edge to take anyone on.
Back when I had athletics training and rugby games every week, I’d never really put too much thought into the kit I was wearing and how many calories I was consuming/burning, pretty sure I was no where near the 8% body fat I am now. (I have chubby pictures on my Instagram to prove this fact).
Anyway my point is, how you ‘feel’ mentally and physically when you compete or simply when you’re out and about moving around is the difference between winning and losing or feeling confident.
There’s so much information out there, all claiming to be ‘the best’ it often leaves you confused and lost on what may be right.
Here are a few of my favourite things… ‘The Trainer Game'
I’m a bit of a 'sneaker head’ so when it comes to having something on my feet, I like to get hold of something that plays the part and also looks sharp. I’m fortunate and very proud to be working with @NewBalanceUK at a time when they are really at the top the game. Getting access to the hottest kit on the market and putting it to the test not only for my own personal gain, but to provide you guys with the knowledge that can help you find the right tools for your fitness goals. http://www.newbalance.co.uk/
At the end of the day, everyone's body shape is a little different and when it comes to our precious feet, we need to try out and ‘feel’-out what’s right so we can get the best from our purchases right?
These days you don’t have to spend a fortune to get the best feel and performance, the level of quality and technology is changing the game and constantly evolving. Be ahead of the curve.

I really hope this helps you get started and off on the right track (pun accidental). Remember to create your own style and find whats right for you.
Be safe out there, remember to take care of your precious body and be the best version of yourself.
Have a beautiful day.
Big love always.
