You go to the gym a lot and you eat pretty well and you kinda know about your body. Y’no, the biceps and the glutes…but do you REALLY know your body? I thought I did. But then I enrolled on a Personal Trainer course at London’s TRAINFITNESS, and quickly realised how naive I was. Here’s a few of the things I picked up, which could change the way you eat and train…No, not sitting-on-the-sofa kinda still.
Hey Stacey! What’s your favourite workout and why? Walking and cycling. I get to spend quality time with my children. I also have a family gym membership where we swim together, play tennis and squash. Do you have a favourite body part? I love my whole body. I’ve finally reached a point where I don’t think it matters. I’m healthy and my body serves me well, so I love it all. That’s great! Is there a body part you struggle to keep in shape?
TV Presenter Carol Smillie is looking fabulous at 55! Now caught up with her chat fitness and diet…Walking my two black Labradors, Jess and Ruby every day. I’ve never joined a gym as I loathe enforced exercise. I honestly believe a brisk walk every day in the fresh air is just as beneficial. Do you follow any fitness bloggers online? I don’t actually follow any. I find at times their accounts can create unrealistic expectations. We agree! When do you feel most body confident?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
