Today, Dee Begley takes on her first opponent at the MMA World Championships in Bahrain. We have go to know Dee this year and during that time we found out more about her fighting life and her desire to get to the very pinnacle of her sport.
While we are lucky to have many amazing people in our community, one person and one group really stood out, Mel McDermott and Galz Gone Wild. What is Galz Gone Wild? Well that is both an easy and difficult question. GGW is, at its simplest, a hiking group for women. At a deeper level, it is a community of women who use outdoor adventures as a way of connecting with one another and relationship bonding and use nature as a form of meditation and empowerment.
Everyone has different motivations in life. In the previous paragraph there were those that wanted to dive deeper into a field they were passionate about, there were physical challenges to overcome and motivation to simply chase adventure.
A motivation that we often forget is 'family'. After all, making time for family members and being able to create memories with loved ones is as good a motivation as any. This motivation was the reason behind our latest addition of Hoodies in the Wild. @DonalHarrold traveled to the Pyrenees to spend quality time with loved ones and start a new family tradition. A tradition that we think everyone will soon agree is quite special.
To mark the celebration of one year in business, we invited our community to join us in scaling the Sugarloaf Mountain. On the top of the mountain, each person that joined us wrote down their goal for the year and posted it into our G+C goal box. We caught up with one of those people to see how her goal was progressing. This is her inspiring story.
To celebrate all things World Cup and Football we caught up with freestyle footballer, Conor Reynolds. Conor is a friend of the brand, a long-time collaborator of Gym+Coffee and current Irish Freestyle Football Champion.
Hoodies in the Wild is one of our favourite byproducts of creating Gym+Coffee. Our community have been out Making Life Richer in their G+C hoodies and sharing the experience with us. The influx of photos provides us with some much appreciated doses of inspiration each week.
