about you

PERFORMANCE FOOD ‘What sports nutritionists really eat’ (WF issue 1) was an eye opener. Good nutrition and a healthy diet are essential to improving your sports performance, whether you are a competing athlete, a weekend sports player or a beginner to exercise. My aim is to eat a healthy diet which contains starchy foods, plenty of fruits and vegetables, some protein foods and some dairy – and I realised it is also important to stay hydrated. I enjoyed reading what the nutritionists ate and it will help me in my quest to eat healthier. Celine Williams, Denbighshire POWER RUNS Thank you for the delicious recipes from Charlie Watson, in ‘Fuel Your Runs’ (WF issue 1). I love running – it’s my one true passion – but I often get stuck in a rut with…

FITNESS FOCUS Congratulations on the first issue of Women’s Fitness! I particularly enjoyed reading ‘How to work out in 2020’ (WF issue 1). At the end of last year, I was getting that all too familiar feeling that I should be doing something drastic come the new year to stay active. I like to keep fit with different types of exercise, especially running and yoga, but December socialising really gets me off track and then I agonise over how to begin again in January. It took this article to make me realise that there’s something for everyone and to focus on what I enjoy. Tracking my progress motivates me, so I’m treating myself to some new smart tech. I’m so looking forward to focusing on my 2020 fitness journey thanks to…

‘how i build my body’

CARDIO ‘Rowing is my cardio. We train six days a week – seven days as we gear up for the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 – doing two 16km rows on the water each day if the weather isn’t unbearable, otherwise we head to the indoor rowing machines. Rowing puts a lot of strain on our backs, so there’s loads of cycling, too. ‘A standard race is 2km long. Aside from the first and last minute, when you’re sprinting, it’s all about endurance, so we have to build a huge aerobic engine by rowing for hours. Team camaraderie is so important to keep going, especially when we’ll do over 200km some weeks. It sounds horrible, but I love it!’ STRENGTH Team camaraderie is so important to keep going, especially when we’ll do over 200km some…
