Don’t you just love the word community? It feels all inclusive, doesn’t it?
A group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.
– Oxford English Dictionary
In this instance, it’s a group of people having a particular characteristic in common – which is a love for being physically active and sharing it with others, even if occasionally we might embarrass ourselves doing it (ok, that might just be me) and that’s the ethos and plan of Decathlon (to share physical activity with others, not embarrass ourselves – that’s purely a personal choice, or can’t be helped in my case).
Super lucky recently to have been able to interview one of my fitness heroes Alex Crockford, creator of Crockfit! I was super excited, but don’t tell him that! I have followed Alex’s homefit plans, which have been amazing, and I wholeheartedly recommend them – great support and advice, and a really lovely community too.

Then in the evening it was my beloved Boxercise! Certainly felt that in my thighs the next day! There was getting down to a lying position and then back up to standing without using our hands – this hurt. So I got my kids to do the same, wow they made it look so easy, they’re closer to the ground – that’s my defence and I am sticking to it!!! Haha!!!
