hello fitness, my old friend

“Creating opportunities, especially for creatives of colour, to start careers, advance, get paid – it’s the best.”GABRIELLE UNION, P.28 (PHOTOGRAPH: CASEY CRAFFORD) Staff Fitness Challenge… Those 12 weeks of winter that the entire WH team loves to hate and hates to love and, well... It’s complicated!We spend hours debating among ourselves as to who is doing what each year – and who had the same genius idea and wants to pair up. I always try to hedge my bets (default setting, unfortunately!). I’ve had wildly successful years where I’ve had a great exercise routine and a sidekick – hey, S.W.E.A.T.1000; hello there, Leigh Champanis-King – and utterly useless years, where I’ve gone it alone, done something super-boring, had no one kicking my ass to get out of bed and…

Nomvelo Mkhwanazi, Tugela Ferry, KZN We Hear You Exercise is known to bring a sense of satisfaction and contentment. Reading Women’s Health magazine not only shows how important…

Why do I bruise like a peach? ANSWER Got a case of the Ross Gellers? “Bruises occur when a blood vessel leaks blood into soft tissue near the surface of the skin,” explains dermatologist Dr Neil Sadick. “Some body parts, such as the shins, are more prone to bruising, as they have less cushioning. And you may have an inherited disposition to blood vessels that rupture and leak more easily.” Your chances can also be raised if you regularly take medication, such as blood thinners, aspirin or ibuprofen. Another potential reason: you could be deficient in vitamins C and K. “If you develop a bruise or suspect one is coming, ice the area on and off for a day to reduce swelling and inflammation,” says Sadick.
