About Helen

Hey! I’m Helen Christie – welcome to my website.

I’m a Blogger, Fitness Guru, Health Enthusiast, Wellness Expert… I probably fall in-between all that lot somewhere!

I started my fitness blog after I started to experience the ill-effects of sitting down all day at my office job. Fatigue, backache, weight gain, postural issues… starting full-time work came as a shock to my body, and I wasn’t willing to let the effects of the sedentary lifestyle rule my life as it does for so many others.

My blog allowed me to connect with people suffering in a similar predicament, and has made me realise that my purpose in life isn’t to fill out spreadsheets, but it’s to help others to understand how to achieve their health and fitness goals, too!

Over time, my blog has expanded to also address the ever-growing concern of the toxic fitness culture on Instagram. With this came my character, Kelly, who plays a stereotypical fitness influencer going about her day-to-day life via little sketch videos. As someone who was negatively effected by the fitness culture on Instagram, I hope to try and expose the negative parts of this culture and help other girls who may be falling into the same cycle as I did. You can read more about Kelly in my blog, here and here.

My Kelly campaign has been my most successful yet, and in the new year (2019) I will be releasing some merch to raise awareness of this movement, and 10% of all proceeds will go to the charity mind.
