    Break Point – Kevin Mitchell

    Not too long ago I read Break Point by Kevin Mitchell and I found it to be a very insightful and interesting look at the Men’s tennis tour, focusing somewhat on ‘The Big 4’, of Djokovic, Federer, Nadal and Murray. There were parts of it that really stood out for me, mainly those sections...

    Tennis vs Boxing – what can we learn?

    As I have said previously, I love to look around at many different sports and assess the transferable qualities that each sport can bring. If you stay within the confines of a single sport, it is easy to get ‘blinkered’ and miss loads of great information that is out there and can be used....

    A 5 year old’s perspective

    A few Sundays ago, in the morning, I went out for my first run with my 5 year old daughter. Now I have to say that this wasn’t me kick-starting her fitness training regime; this was totally, 100% at her request. She had been begging us for some new trainers for weeks, specifically so that
