  • FIBO

    Last Thursday, Ellen, Cheryl and I met at Stansted to fly out to FIBO. By the time we reached the gate, our three had become eight, as we’d bumped into others we knew who were getting the same flight. We touched down in Cologne and attempted to practise our rudimentary language skills on our taxi driver… without much success. Reaching the exhibition centre, we joined forces with Dawn and armed our...

Whether male, female, a gym newbie or an old bull, we come together to push iron in perfect harmony – most of the time.
