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…

Getting my plimsolls muddy

 Its 7pm on a Tuesday night and I’m hanging from monkey bars in a park. No, I’m not drunk, it was all part of my alternative personal training session with Muddy Plimsolls. To begin with it probably wasn’t the best idea to arrange a personal training session just days after I’d done a half marathon….

BE: FIT London

If you’re an exercise geek like me you’ll be just as excited to find out that you can head down to a three day health and fitness exhibition at the end of the month. Previously known as the Vitality show, the event will be taking place from Friday 28th-30thMarch 2014 at Old Billingsgate, in association…

I want to be a Hiitgirl…

In the last year I’ve really become a fan of interval training  – it feels like I get the best results when I really push myself, and even better when your only working out for 30 minutes.So I was all up for trying out Hiitgirl, it’s had some really good writes up – including in…

Half marathon: 2 weeks to go….

Yep its flown by…one minute I was signing up and the next I’m trying to get through the 10 mile training runs. And its been painful…. After my first 10K training run I brilliantly secured an injury. I’m still not completely sure what it was – but I’m convinced I somehow slightly tore my left…

Class of the week: Gravity HIIT

To lose weight and tone up it’s all about high intensity interval (HIIT) training. Which of course sounds scary – even to the regular gym goer. And I somehow roped in two of my friends to try out the newest form of HIIT training at Westminster Lodge in St Albans the other weekend, where they…

Class of the week: Bouldercise at Westway

So my challenge this year was to mix it up a little and step away from the comfort of my spinning bike. So when I was asked  down to Westway, to trial out a new ‘Bouldercise’ class of course I had to accept. A mix between bouldering and cardio work, it’s one of a kind…

New Years Resolutions

The New Year is always a great time to vow to join the gym, eat less and pray you’ll end up looking like a super model. But very rarely does it happen – we get bored and before we know it the wet, cold nights make us want to sack off the gym for chocolate and Downton…

This week’s exercise crush….Boutique sport

Boutique sport are like the best friend you always wanted – pushing you to go that little bit further, inviting you along to lovely little exercise classes and giving you free stuff.And to prove it they invited me along to two of their launches recently. The first was yoga at the Blue Cow Studio in…

A walk in the park….

Sometimes I really hate exercise! This normally occurs very early in the morning, like my crazy 6.30am start yesterday – yep a Saturday! Okay, lets rewind….. a couple of moths ago two friends (off the back of the Olympics excitement) had a brilliant idea that we should all do a 10K. We’d all done one…
