When I started Fitness On Toast, I chose the name as a reaction to the sheer number of improvised meals served ‘on toast’ in the UK; my Personal Training clients would fill their food diaries with the likes of beans on toast, cheese on toast, eggs on toast, jam on toast… I wanted to highlight some Fitness on toast instead! However I believe it’s possible to create healthy equivalents to fuel you pre […]

Whilst I’m a bit of a pacifist at heart and wouldn’t want to tread on an ant, I had an energising session of punching, kicking, elbowing and kneeing some pads HARD – and I loved it! On my recent visit to the W Maldives, I practiced Muay Thai for the first time in my life, guided by master instructor Mark Angeles, a […]

This month, I’ve teamed up with Hovis to celebrate today’s launch of their innovative new Hovis® Seed Sensations® Chia Bread, which is itself a partnership with The Chia Co, the world’s largest producer of sustainably farmed Chia seed. To mark the occasion, I thought I’d create a piece of Scandinavian food art! The Swedish sandwich cake, or ‘Smörgåstårta’ as we unpronounceably call it, […]

If the idea of skipping only brings back distant memories from the school playground, I’d say it’s time to give it another shot! If you follow my Snapchat (@fitnessontoast), you might have noticed a load of videos where I’m working on my skip, as well as in THIS video from last year. As a form of exercise, I absolutely love it! To my mind, it’s one […]

When I was 14 years old in Sweden, I stumbled across an enlightening article about dairy products and decided there-and-then that I simply didn’t need to consume as much of it! Fast forward to today in England and the supermarket shelves are stocked with countless milk alternatives to cater for the 5% of Brits who are lactose-intolerant […]

Staying healthy in the office environment is a monumental challenge. It’s not unusual for the office worker to remain at his/her desk for a solid 13 hour spell, arising only for a hit of drowsiness-neutralising caffeine and/or to plunder the vending machine. Our poor bodies weren’t designed to be sat slouched and motionless for half a day, and funnily enough, […]
