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…

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…

Orange Theory @ David Lloyd

  After the excesses of Christmas I needed a really good workout that just made me feel normal again – so I chose Orange Theory in Islington. If you want to burn in excess of 500 calories, sweat like no one is watching and feel like you’ve done a tough workout – then this is…

Circus skills: a day with the National centre for Circus Arts

As a kid the thought of running away to join the circus seemed quite enticing – travelling the world, hanging out with animals and performing tricks on various things in the air. Never did I quite manage it though… But some people actually did make it to the Circus, namely the ones who have trained and are…

Fitness Fox

I used to think with exercise that the harder and faster I go then the better results I would get, but after finding some great pilates and barre classes, I realised that strength and conditioning classes can be great for the whole body. Fitness Fox, led by Kelly in Clissford Park in Stoke Newington every…

Legging Love

Women’s fitness leggings have had a slight revamp over the last few years, with everyone getting a bit more daring and using bright bold colours and amazing designs. Of course we’re never going to get rid of our staple black leggings (what’s going to go with our bold coloured gym tops?) but if we’re going to…

Spa London

When you exercise a lot sometimes you just need some down time – or a little spa action. So after a pretty hard 1Rebel class on Saturday off to Spa London in Wimbledon I went. When I arrived at the spa I was greeted by the friendly staff who directed me to the changing rooms,…

Pre-holiday detoxing

After my first detox I said ‘never again’…..I did the Jason Vale detox diet and it was hard! I felt faint, very hungry and was so close to giving up most hours. I’d done a detox – I basically never had to do another one ever again. Well that is until someone reminds you that…

Yoga with a HIGH

As I’ve got older I’ve somehow become more scared of heights. When I was younger I seemed to be fearless – bombing down zip lines, jumping out of planes and going on the scariest of rides. Now I can barely look out of a tall building without having to steady myself. So last week when…
