About us

Lunges and Lycra is a UK-based blog for women who like sweating, fitness and the odd nip of gin. Brought to you by us, Charlotte Thomas and Emma Lax.

We launched the site in 2012, after becoming more than a little bored of patronising health magazines and male-dominated sports pages. We wanted to create a blog for women like us. Women who appreciate a good gym session or green smoothie almost as much as they like a bag of crisps or pint of wine. We feature workouts, interviews, class and race reviews, cool fitness happenings, rundowns of swanky new kit and occasionally the odd recipe or two. 

To work with us, chat to us, or send us unsolicited love poems email emma@lungesandlycra.co.uk and charlotte@lungesandlycra.co.uk. You can also find out more about us here.
