It’s been 10 years since Proviz founders Anthony and Rupert Langly-Smith first set up the business and what a decade it has been! To celebrate this milestone the brothers are introducing a brand refresh, complete with a new strapline – #defythedarkness – and 15 brand new products, many of which owe their existence to our incredibly loyal customers.
We thought we’d ask Proviz followers to help us create our own Dog Jog Hall of Fame. We asked for your stories of running with your four-legged friends – many of whom challenge conventional understanding of which dogs make the best running partners.
As an ex-international runner, who competed at international level, Shaun first started offering personal coaching for clients back in 2011. The desire to help other runners who were struggling to improve their technique and make it a part of their routine came from being “a big believer in the power of running".
Getting enough sleep is crucial for our health and wellbeing and it is recommended that as adults we get at least seven hours of shut-eye every night. Blue light from your phone can affect your sleeping patterns, but if you’re careful there are ways in which using your phone might actually aid your sleep.

Have you ever felt like you’re not always quite in charge of your reactions and emotions? If so, there’s a good chance you’ve come into contact with your ‘chimp’ – the prehistoric, limbic part of your brain primed to protect you from danger. We talk to Dr Anna Waters to see how we can befriend our chimp and manage uncertainty.
For each person who loves the stuff there’s another who despises it, often thanks to childhood memories, or because it leaves them feeling bloated. We want to persuade you to give it another go – even become a porridge convert – with some delicious variations. Here are some ideas to liven up your morning bowl of oats...
