Inspiration for the Politie Triathlon

On Saturday I completed my second last triathlon of the season, the Politie Triathlon (the one that I have been putting all my efforts into).

I’d been watching quite a lot of sport during the week and I really took some inspiration from two athletes that I had seen.  Interesting neither were British, which for me […]

Biomechanics And Baby Wearing

A few weeks ago I met with Michelle, founder of Mamahub, a space where parents come to seek advice on wellbeing and healthy living. Rather than using a buggy, pushchair or pram, Michelle wears her baby Cara.

Baby wearing is centuries old and has been practiced around the world in many different cultures. Working with […]

Biomechanics – Tried and Tested by an Iron Man

I am privileged to be part of a great triathlon club in Amsterdam called ATAC. This means I meet a lot of amazing athletes who are achieving amazing things and are very inspiring.

One of them is Matt. He is a very active member of the club, a real live Ironman and also a Triathlon […]

D33 – How my first ultra-marathon went

In one of my previous blogs posts I spoke about my training leading up to my first ultra marathon, the D33, in Scotland. On Saturday I did it!

My last week of training had me running a 70 minute run on Tuesday. I felt amazing and ready to go and then on Thursday I ran […]

My First Ultramarathon

An ultra marathon is any race longer than a marathon, longer than 42.2 km.

Last year, after running the Barcelona marathon, I felt I could run a bit further. How much further, I don’t know yet… But I am now training for a 33 miles (53km) ultra marathon, from Aberdeen (North east of Scotland) to […]

WW at the Official Launch of De Hallen

One of the hippest locations in Amsterdam at the moment – De Hallen has been open for quite a while now, but they only had their official opening on the 6th of February. Instead of their usual weekend Local Goods Market, they organised a special Neighbourhood Market, inviting organisations and entrepreneurs from the neighbourhood […]

ATAC Workshop

A couple of weeks ago, Natalie from PhysioMatters and I gave a workshop at ATAC – the Amsterdam Triathlon and Cycling club.

I’ve been a member at ATAC for more than a year now, and the idea to give a workshop there was a way of giving something back to the club. Also, I know […]

Back Pain – Spotted and Relieved

One of my clients started Personal Training sessions with a sore back – he had been suffering from back pain for quite a while. When we started training, he was doing a lot of compensation and was feeling discomfort in his back even during basic exercises.

I screened him and found where the dysfunction was […]

Olympisch Stadionloop 2014

The Olympisch Stadionloop happened this year on the 9th of November, and Wilson’s Workouts went with a team of seven – Boot Campers Emma and Julie, Buggyfitters Ann, Marie and Jill (well done, guys!), Brian and I. We all ran 10 km and all had lots of fun. It was a beautiful day, with perfect conditions […]

“On Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd June the fourth 020sbn Pop-up Boutique took place, a two-day market showing more than 60 small businesses from Amsterdam and surrounding areas and WOW, what a day it proved to be. The weather was fantastic and the atmosphere was warm and buzzing with positive energy.” Read on…
