    Ditch the kale and enjoy Cup Match

    It’s Cup Match time in Bermuda ... bacchanal! It’s one of my favourite holidays next to my birthday — yes, a holiday — and Christmas.

    The banter leading up to the game: Somerset (the best) versus St George’s; the Facebook memes, the...

    Time to get summertime fine

    June has finally arrived!

    I may have a slight bias since my birthday is next week, but this is clearly the best month.

    It marks the beginning of a Bermuda summer: carnival, cruises, raft-ups, barbecues, Cup Match, beach days, swizzle...

    If at first you don’t succeed, try again

    One thing that stands true is that this journey is far from linear. If plotted on a graph, it would be filled with upward lines, downward lines, even lines dictating a plateau, and that’s how it is for everyone, so don’t feel alone.

    To see real improvement, get yourself a swolemate

    During those many years of training and competing I was taught that this is not a team sport.

    If you eat healthily, so will your children

    As one of six children, you can rightly assume that eating out at restaurants wasn’t a common thing at our house. My daddy was the “master chef and baker”.

    We had home-cooked meals at the dinner table.

    We took sandwiches made with...

    Rehabilitation strategies for muscle soreness

    Muscle soreness is not a prerequisite for fat loss or weight growth but, yeah, it’s inevitable.

    Embrace the strength of your inner warrior

    When most of us hear the word ‘strong’ we think of a man. If at any time we think of a woman, we envision huge muscles, big legs, a deep voice — overall, we make her out to be more masculine than she actually is.

    Strength has no...

    Is it for fun or just to socialise?

    Did a family member or friend persuade/guilt-trip you into doing it?
