We believe in empowering you to make the right lifestyle choices on your journey to live your best life (all based on science, but science made simple so you will get it!)

We know that the world of nutrition and exercise can sometimes be confusing with so many different articles and opinions pulling you in various directions – many leaving you more confused than ever making the right choices difficult to make! We want to be your one-stop-guide to the real truth about nutrition and exercise, a blog that speaks to you as a parent/individudal/fellow athlete. Our aim is to offer professional advice based on years of scientific studies but written in layman terms. There’s a disconnect between what needs to be said and how it is being said and we would like to bridge the gap. We know that life gets hectic and that most of us run at maximum capacity – we want you to know that we have you covered – wether you need answers on what food labels are really saying or what protein powder to purchase: we have the answers! So if you want to feel better (or actually feel fantastic) start reading. If there’s a topic you would like to find out more about, please feel free to SAY HI.
