Last Saturday we spent an exciting and stimulating part of our afternoon at the premises of Real Motion at 3 Platonos Street – Elliniko – Athens.

After having used GSA clothing and footwear throughout the last couple of months for our training and having seen that their “dry fit” MEANS DRYFIT we decided to look them up!!

Real motion is the company that represents GSA SPORT and has done immense actions to distribute their products within the gyms and fitness centers.

Their array of products is not limited only to GSA and running wear but to a wide range of other athletic areas such as cycling, in and outdoor training/GYM  equipment, weights, etc and with products from internationally renowned companies such as BASI SYSTEMS, REALRYDER, FITNESS STAR, OLIVE-FITNESS, SALTER, ACTIVMOTION, IQNITER CARDIO TRAINING AND PT4 PRO.

Their Vision “is to change the fitness industry for the better by aiming to introduce as many people as possible to a healthier lifestyle.  They are set upon spreading the word that fitness can be fun, with visible results on people’s health and physical condition.  How better than to do this with the vast array of equipment and tools offering indispensable solutions and ideas to all fitness professionals ………..Functional training is their “tool” and their experience is at our service!!!!”

Agistri swimming and running 2017


This weekend is the Agistri Running and Swimming Race 2017 and one of our favorite races on this beautiful tiny green island with its crystal clear waters and golden sands.


What more can one ask for!  An ideal weekend of running and relaxing, just one hour from the Port of Piraeus!

The event is always perfectly organized and well attended because of this.

The people of Agistri are hospitable, making the whole experience magical.

I couldn’t help but post some great pics from our experience last year.



So sorry we couldn’t make it this year ……….. but make a promise for the next one in 2018.

Last Thursday, while running, and just when I was admiring the beautiful sunset and thinking how lucky I was to be living in such a blessed part of Athens;  by the sea, fresh air, “wide pavements” – it just took a milisecond for me to land head first into a gutter off one of those “wide pavements”!!!

I don’t know if its the weather being all grey and drab or just that  it has come to the point again (for this year) that we need to say …..enough….. quote …..unquote, especially after our last blog….”marathon frenzy”.

During the last weeks we are getting a lot of “friends” telling us how “wrong” it is for us to be doing two marathons a year;  reminding us on the impact that this will have on our bodies……….not forgetting to add at the end………and at “your age”!!
