You’d be pleasantly surprised if we told you that the fruit you eat every day is ‘tropical’. When you think of tropical fruits, you imagine them to come from a sandy beach, somewhere hot, with crystal blue seas, the sun shining and palm trees hanging over your head.

For your ultimate fruit guide and the benefits or how to use, read on…

January has come around again (ekk) and got us all thinking about new beginnings, time and how to make the most of it to reach our goals in life, fitness included.
In years gone by, January would see me buy the latest fitness DVD, make sure I had the newest fad diet book and a diary to make notes of my progress, but by 3 weeks in I’d look back a bit sadly that I hadn’t kept to my hardcore plans. The moral is, don’t go in hard all at once, fit it in where you can and make it feel less like hard work.
It’s the most wonderful time of year and we all know what that means. Stress and food! Now if you aren’t eating from being stressed then for sure you’ll be eating anyway. With all of them chocolates and parties, it’s no wonder we associate Christmas with food. But why should your weight go up during this happy time? Well it doesn’t have to! We’ve come up with a few recipes for you to try over Christmas instead of the usual ‘Sunday Roast’. Yummy and healthy (ish)!

How to keep your body happy this summer with guest blogger- Sooz Mac
So, it's summer already and although you may have been working hard to get summer ready, there's a few extra things you can be doing to keep your body happy this summer!
DRINK DRINK DRINK!
Unfortunately not the alcoholic kind! Drinking 8 glasses of water a day keeps you hydrated and your insides and outsides happy and healthy! Try taking a bottle with you everywhere with you to encourage your daily water intake and aim to drink it before a certain time of the day, then you can fill it up and get brownie points for exceeding your daily intake! You can always add fresh fruit to your water to zing it up a little. Try adding slices of lemon, lime and even orange for a fresh twist!
Another great way to stay hydrated is coconut water! Fresh from the coconut UFC Coconut water contains 100% straight from the coconut water and it tastes delicious! No fat either which is an added bonus! Find it at Holland and barrett.
Loose fitting clothing is an accident waiting to happen when working out, particularly if your exercising with bikes or other equipment that your clothing could get caught in. This also works with tight fitting clothing. If your clothes are too tight, they will become uncomfortable when working out, making you sweat more and slowing you down. At ELLESPORT we use Dri-Activ material which is a finish on the fabric that keeps you dry while working out.
There’s no better time than sitting out in the garden in the summer, with friends and drinks. But who said the healthy eating needs to go out of the window just because you want to have fun?! It doesn’t!! We have a fun and most importantly HEALTHY smoothie recipe that you could mix up, ready for when your friends arrive or even better, make together in the garden as a kind of mocktail making class!
Summer is nearly there and we all want to have a toned and smooth skin for when we’ll jump in our shorts and swimsuits, and head to the beach!

However, we do have a few tips that will help you get quick results! We have teamed up with Cellublue, who have a magic concept on how to tackle that pesky cellulite.
