You can’t control what happens, but you can control how you react’ I thought I created this quote myself, but turns out the Greek philosopher, Epictetus, said it over a thousand years ago. What exactly does the motto mean to me? Are you similar to me or could this motto help you?
We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing" – George Bernard Shaw. When did we start taking everything so seriously, especially ourselves? When did we stop playing? The notion is that once we reach adulthood, it’s time to get serious.

People talk about wanting to be fitter. That can mean a number of things depending on the person though. It could be seeing some weight loss on the weighing scales, it could be having the ability to walk, run or cycle farther or it could be someone just feeling more comfortable in their own skin as a result of being that little bit more active.
As coaches we love to talk all things BikeRowSki with our members, be it pre class laughs, technique tips or post class feedback, we love questions! As we always say Bike Row Ski is for everyone! It’s been a foundation block for us since day one to offer something for every member to get excited about. Calories is just another element of the great BikeRowSki experience!
The start of the New Year may not be what we had envisaged.

It’s widely known that exercise plays a huge roll in reducing stress for so many. The hectic office environment, the busy parent at home, the long hours of study, the never ending notifications on your mobile phone… everyone needs that daily 45 minutes to themselves so they can prioritize their health and well being, physically and mentally.
