London based sports and fitness blogger Bradley Simmonds will be running the London Marathon in partnership with TAG Heuer and The Watch Gallery. Bradley has a background steeped in sports, being the son of a professional high board diver he was inspired to follow his own career in professional sport, playing football at the age of seven with the Chelsea Academy before signing as a professional footballer at Queens Park Rangers. After suffering setbacks with injuries he has gone on to overcome these challenges becoming a recognised personal trainer, coaching the likes of Premier League footballers John Terry and Theo Walcott.
In the lead up to the Virgin Money London Marathon 2017, Bradley will be closely timing his training with his favourite TAG Heuer timepieces, posting to his 160K Instagram followers and providing content for his blog covering features such as his inspiration for running the marathon, what to eat whilst training, watches and technology to help track your progress during training and of course documenting his progress on race day itself.
“Remember you don’t have to be great to start but you have to start to be great.”
“In the upcoming weeks I will be sharing my marathon preparation and how The Watch Gallery and TAG Heuer are supporting me on this journey.”
“I am a strong believer that challenging ourselves and stepping out of our comfort zone is the best way to achieve great things.
I’ve always had a passion for helping people and as I continue to grow and my social media following grows I am driven by the fact that what I do inspires others to be fit and healthy too.
