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…

Surfset Yoga – GymBox

I’d seen this trend of doing yoga on a surf board via Instagram but thought it was one of those ‘only in LA’ sort of things. So when Gymbox got in touch to tell me they offered it at their Farringdon branch I of course jumped at the chance of going down. So if you…

Quorn with Jessie Pavelka

I’m not a vegetarian, vegan or do I follow any sort of diet. But I am into eating well – as I’ve got older I’ve realised how important it is – for your health, your body and your general well-being. As I exercise a lot I also like to make sure that there is a…

Floga @ Gatwick with Shona Vertue

I’ve done yoga at some alternative places – beach side at Bondi in Sydney, on the glass floor at Tower Bridge – but now you can do it at an airport? Surely not? Yep, those clever things over at Gatwick have only gone and got a yoga lounge, and it’s not even for the elite…

BRITA Winter work-out with Madeleine Shaw

As the mornings and evenings start to draw in and get darker it’s so easy to hibernate – who wants to get out of bed when it’s dark or go to the gym after work when you’d rather huddle on your sofa? But these are the months when we most need exercise, our bodies are…

Rounds @ 1Rebel

I may, or may not have expressed my love for this class a few times in the past. Okay, okay – it’s pretty tough and Mila is pretty mean to you, when you’re so knackered you just want to curl up in a ball and never ever do a burpee ever again she’ll make you…

Drip and Chill @ EF MEDISPA

I’m a bit of a vitamin queen anyway, I take my vitamins daily and I swear by Berocca. Whenever I forget to take them I get ill – a couple of weeks ago was a prime example, I’d been caught by the dreaded lurgy, okay just a cold but god was it annoying, coughing your way…

Aerial Hoop @ Gymbox

I had done a slight intro to Aerial Hoops before and really got a feel for it – so of course my inquisitive nature got the better of me and I had to try the hour and a half class at Gym Box (taken by Flying fantastic) last weekend. After a small warm up we…

#30DayFitnessChallenge

Today I start my #30DayFitnessChallenge – it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while, because like most people I sometimes make excuses when it comes to exercise – ‘I’m too busy’ ‘I’m too tired’ and ‘ I just need a night off’ are regular excuses. But I always know that I’ll feel so much…

Shine Walk

When I told everyone I was doing a half marathon walk they didn’t see what the big deal was. I know I wasn’t running it so why was it such a big thing? Okay, I didn’t technically need to do much training, but it was still kind of a big deal. Plus we were doing it…

Slow Motion @ Bestival

Festivals have changed considerably over the last few years. With the world becoming more conscious around health and fitness, so it’s not a great surprise that instead of that extra bar yoga tents and juice bars are popping up at festivals all over the UK. And what a great way to cure a hangover! So…
