DFS have enlisted the help of Laura Trott and other Team GB Olympic athletes to show the power of relaxation in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. See how the comforts of home are helping Laura in her Rio 2016 preparations.
I can’t believe the 2016 Rio Olympics are just around the corner. It seems like yesterday that my, then five year old daughter and I were sitting on our sofa cheering on Team GB at the London 2012 Olympics at the very top of our voices!

Getting new kit is always exciting but even more so when it is so obviously supporting Team GB. London 2012 was so inspiring for me and watching the track cycling shouting the team on from my sofa is one of the things I remember most. My kids and I were hoarse we were cheering so much! It’s hard to believe that is nearly three years ago already! Rio 2016 will be upon us in no time!
