A while back I wrote about how a “fitness wave” hit Johannesburg and the other big cities. However, 2015 I saw how this was not just limited to the said big cities, with more and more South Africans taking greater strides and invested in their health, holistically.
The evidence lies in the number of Instagram Continue reading
When it comes to fitness and fine bodies, there are a couple of misconceptions doing the rounds:
• that doing a number of crunches until you cannot laugh will get you ready to ‘pounce’ in that bikini, come summer.
• that (endless) running will get you the legs like Maria Sharapova
• that using weights will make you Continue reading
I saw an advert on Twitter through new kids on SA Supplement market – GNC ‘s account. They teamed up with Cosmopolitan Magazine to basically give one lucky sod a personal trainer for a year.
After seeing ‘win a personal trainer for a year’ I didn’t care much for any other details I signed up. Continue reading
look mom, I’m a poster kid
Let be honest. No one likes losing.
No one’s ego is superficial enough to accept defeat without reservation. I suspect Mother Teresa didn’t like things not going her way… and so the concept ‘good loser’ was invented by a loser with a big beard who had never had a bad day in his jolly life. Continue reading
I often joke that my mother put me on a track field while in nappies. That’s because that’s how long I feel I’ve been active.
I come from a long line of active brats, there’s very few sports we’ve never tried (no Golf is not a sport) and although most of us never gone further Continue reading
Very few people remember who came second when Usain Bolt broke that ridiculous record in 2008.
Even fewer recall the silver medalist in 2004 Olympics on the 4×1 pool relay. Heck I don’t even know who were the runners up to Bafana Bafana’s 1996 dream finish.
That’s the nature of sport. You come second, no one Continue reading
It is estimated that over one million people in South Africa have undiagnosed diabetes. That means 1 in 50 people are living with diabetes and they don’t even know it.
So the good people at Novo Nordisk have launched a campaign that aims at curbing this statistic. They are calling it One Small Victory. The Continue reading
This week I’m headed to Durban for the inaugural Mr Price Sport BlogOlympics. They are not telling us much, other than expect a fun filled day. Put 24 bloggers together and there’s bound to be banter beyond words (no sure if there’s a pun here).
Looking at the list there’s no way #TeamJozi will not take Continue reading
There’s this annoying wave that has hit the world extremely hard. You see its impact at every corner. It awakens all kinds of emotions, and more often than not, they hit you all at once.
They are frustration, annoyance, jealousy, joy, approval, puzzlement, but more importantly – pride.
It’s the fitness wave. Yup, in my world, Continue reading
Since its inception in March 2012, the We Run Jozi race has become an integral part of Johannesburg social calendar and the 2013 race definitely did not disappoint; it was just as spectacular.

In fact, Nike has positioned themselves as a leader in creating a global community of runners. Whether beginner or have been ‘taking Continue reading
