Chicago fitness: The Dailey Method and Shred 415

I loved Chicago and doing classes gave me a great opportunity to see the smaller towns just outside of the city too. While I was there I tried out Shred 415 which is a class quite similar to Barry’s Bootcamp – so think treadmill work, as well as weights and body weight exercises. I tried out the Total…

Eating healthy on the go

When you’re ‘on the go’ travelling to lots of different places, like I am at the moment, it’s so easy just to eat rubbish. America has tons of junk food and takeaway shops and when you’re starving after a class it can be so easy to give into temptation. BUT I’m not the type of…

New York fitness 2016: Mile High Run Club and Circuit of Change

The rest of my New York trip was a bit of a whirlwind. I stayed in an amazing AirBnb in Brooklyn,  a building ( The Mckibbin lofts) where they had gorgeous loft apartments. My host was lovely and so were the other guests, including a songwriter, who regularly writes for artists in Nashville! I did…

The Fhitting Room NY

When I saw a review of the Fhitting Room I wasn’t sure it was for me, it looked tough, really tough. Reps of different moves and tabata style exercises  – mainly using your own body weight. I’m not a fan of Cross Fit and it sort of sounded like that. But I was in a…

Soul Cycle New York

Chaise Fitness – New York

My first official class for my little American Fitness journey had to be shared. Typically American – it was super hard, had a very, let’s say encouraging teacher and has left me aching and wondering how I’m going to get through the rest of my classes…….I’m sure I’ll survive! My class was at Chaise Fitness on…

Exercise in the City

Everyone knows how hard it is to get out of the office and do a fitness class  – so it’s great when they come to you. Last year when I was working in an office I fell in love with the yoga teachers who used to come into our office – it was so easy for us…

Are you a skinny B**ch?

I’m the kind of person who when I’m told I’m can’t have something, then I kind of want it that much more – whether it’s a man, a cake or in this case an exercise class – The Skinny Bitch Collective. My email went unanswered when I asked about the wait list for the super exclusive group…
