For a lot of people, they start working out to lose weight. January the first comes up and people want to be fitter, tone up, and (for me at least) lose belly fat. I have said many times that I started running because I was jealous of my sister. That’s not the complete truth. I wanted to lose belly fat – I actually wanted to lose it quite badly.

Olympic athlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson has created the Switch7 workout alongside Brita.

Nike’s Unlimited You campaign has been running throughout the Summer of Sport and the aim is to get people to reach and then break their own limits. I love this ethos and the fact that they use real athletes to help promote it. Unlimited You has already set Amsterdam aflame and over the weekend it took over London. There were two options you could choose: a Kobox class followed by a Nike Run Club run or a Barry’s Dirty Thirty treadmill session followed by a Nike Training Club workout. I went for the latter and to say that I was excited was an understatement!
