Fitness Editor

Ruth Gaukrodger is the fitness editor for Fit&Well and its sister site Coach, responsible for writing about everything from fitness trackers to walking shoes. She also oversees our coverage of health-related topics including nutrition, wellness and workout trends.

A lot of her time is spent setting up testing protocols for our in-depth buying guides and making sure everything is reviewed to a set standard, so you can be confident we only recommend the best products on the market.

When she's not wrestling with equipment in our dedicated testing centre, you can find her pursuing running PBs around the streets of London or improving her yoga skills from the comfort of her living room. She’s a keen believer in working out for enjoyment first and is always open to hearing about new, fun ways to exercise.

Originally a print journalist, Ruth worked for national newspapers and popular tech sites before coming to Future, the publisher of Fit&Well. She has worked as a commissioning editor across other Future titles too, including and Top Ten Reviews. Now focused solely on the field of fitness, she hopes to demystify the world of exercise with honest, straightforward articles.

She graduated from the University of East Anglia in 2012 with a first class degree in English Literature and Philosophy, before completing a Master’s Degree in Creative Script Writing at the same university.
