Spring brings with it a sense of renewal, a fresh surge of energy that makes us feel ready to tackle the issues we may have put on hold during the long, dark winter.
This edition kicks off with an interview with two very inspirational and superbly motivating young men, both members of South Wye Police Boxing Academy. The club puts on a great boxing show every year, rasing funds for local charities, and this year’s event was a huge success again. Read more about it in the opening editorial.
As good health starts with good food, remember to include fresh vegetables in your new, springtime diet. Eating more greens means you don’t have to worry so much about calories or fat content. Whether you buy your fruit and vegetables from the local farm shop or order your veg box delivery, to benefit from these nutritional powerhouses, make sure you eat what’s in season.
Our Health and Fitness section is brimming with helpful tips from local coaches, therapists, personal trainers, nutrition and weight loss specialists, with this edition bringing you two great workouts: All Body Strength Training by Jon Coombes and John Appleby’s Warm Up For Pilates.
If you need a little nudge in the right direction, why not sign up for one of the local races? From St Michael’s Hospice, to Halo Leisure and John Kyrle Gym, there are events suitable for any fitness level. The supportive company of like-minded participants will surely keep you going until you cross the finish line!
A sensational new Alternative Dance Studio opened its doors in Ross-on-Wye, as well as a new Boutique Wellness Centre in Longhope, and both are well worth a try! Additionally, there are Hannah Morley’s Be Mindful Holidays in Skiathos, the Greek paradise island.
For the first time FitNet is showcasing a wedding feature where a team of experts from hair and beauty to fitness and nutrition, advise on preparation for your big day. Brides, grooms or wedding guests, you’ll find something useful on these pages.
Finally, congratulations to Lee Taylor on his recovery and his phenomenal return to karate – read more about it in the Sports section.
