I have just returned from a week in Croatia and this was such a different trip. It was a work trip, not a week away for myself and I had been interested in this sort of traveling for some time now. Our group consisted of 10 participants and two of us - leaders of the… Continue reading The wild thing
September is my favorite time to travel. There’s an autumn feel in the air. If you travel to Northern countries – it’s a little windy, it’s not too hot and not too crowded anymore. If you travel to South, you get to prolong your summer and again – no crowds. So, you might see why… Continue reading Talk tae me in Scots
Couple of years back, my friend and I decided to go on a long weekend to Oslo. I had never been, she had never been, and the flight from Riga was short. So it seemed like a great idea. It still remains one of my favorite trips to this day... And let me tell you… Continue reading Oslo
I have all sorts of personal clients, because it makes me stretch my knowledge on different training for different ages or health issues. But my most inspiring clientele is mothers to be and new moms. I love my training sessions with them, because I get to learn so many new things. I used to be… Continue reading Breathing in labor
Weight training! Music to my ears. I have grown up in a society, where aerobics was a huge thing. In the 90’s every woman was going to at least 1 aerobics’ class a week. My mom was not an exception and she took me along. I don’t remember much, but I do remember that sometimes… Continue reading You should be weight training!

Reason No. 1, why running shouldn’t be a daily activity: Well, I don’t think running is for everyone and myself included. If… Continue reading Should you be doing cardio?
I am the lucky one. I don’t have to sit at a desk for 8 hours every day. And, in my opinion, it doesn’t matter if you love your job or hate it (in which case you should quit it), inactivity at workplace is a curse of the 21st century. Not that long ago, people… Continue reading N.E.A.T. and why does it matter?
Yesterday I ran my first half-marathon Boy, was that something. The most I've ran has been about 12K and I have always considered myself as anti-running. But about 1 and a half year ago I got my Polar A360. With Polar devices, you can also get training programs for running. I decided to try it… Continue reading 21K run
I wanted to share this a long time ago, because I have been using this for about 6 months and I just absolutely love it. The idea came from this blog and I'm just beyond happy that I found it. I have been using turmeric as an anti inflammation treatment for some time, but usually I… Continue reading Turmeric golden juice
Do you get your fiber in every day? It sometimes seems like fiber is one of the least appreciated things in our diets. What is fiber? Basically it’s a carbohydrate that our body can’t process. But don’t worry – it’s not bad, because, by not being processed, it can pass through our intestine system and… Continue reading Fiber
