Rules, that we here at Magna think are worth living by if you want to keep fit and healthy all year round! Keep yourself hydrated. Simple really. Water is an essential nutrient that is involved in every function of the body and without it, our performance levels are bound to decline. Water regulates your body temperature, reduces fatigue and recovery time and increases satisfaction levels. So it is important that we are getting AT LEAST 2 litres of it into our bodies a day. Furthermore, whether you’re a morning exercise enthusiast or not, fasting for 8-10 hours straight means replenishment…

It’s that time of year again. Leaves are falling, coats are becoming a must, and the clocks have gone back an hour (a whole sweet extra hour of sleep, praise!). As always, I’m impatiently looking forward to cosy days on the sofa and the relentless playing of Christmas music in every public space and place, however, what I can’t help but remember is the cold, dark mornings and the crispy chill of winter air on my face during any excursion to the outside… And so it begins …… i woke up to 28 degrees and crisp ..so we brought in…

Let’s do brunch the proper way – put down your cereal bowl and head to the city for some good food with some good people.

Since I started working with Magna, I’ve had the pleasure of trying lots of different fitness classes for the first time as well as meeting lots of customers doing the same. Fitness classes are one of the most accessible ways to get active – but as with everything there is a knack to getting the most out of them. Here are 5 mistakes to avoid, all based on real life experiences. 1. Wear Something Suited To What You’re Doing When I first joined Magna, we went to the lovely Soul Circus yoga festival. It was a day filled with lots of…
