What are your stress levels like usually (Rate 0-10 scale 10 being highest) E: 4 – I don’t get too stressed!

The Supplements For Poppy’s Secret

July 29, 2016
IMG_1237
So it seems everyone wants to know more about what I ate and what supplements I took whilst doing my Victoria’s Secret challenge. I wrote about the diet in my Daily Mail article where I also explained that, coupled with the intense training regime, it made me feel exhausted and ill (I got frequent colds). A few months after the Daily Mail article was published I wrote a following article in The Mail on Sunday’s You Magazine, expressing my concern that many women were still coming to me and asking for my detailed nutritional plans whilst I was on the regime– despite me warning of the negative health implications and making it clear that it was unsustainable.… Continue reading...

Never has the expression “Your vibe attracts your tribe” been more apt than at Les Mills Live which took place at Excel London in partnership with Reebok earlier this year. Take over 4,000 super positive, super fit, super dedicated simply smashing Les Mills fans (known in the inner circle as the #lesmillstribe) and you have one pretty powerful sight to behold. Back in March, Les Mills Live Global Tour kicked off with mega watt power and I was lucky enough to be presenting the event with fellow presenter AJ Odudu. If the name Les Mills doesn’t immediately ring a bell then I’m sure the mention of the Les Mills classes such as Body Attack, Body Pump, Body Combat, RPM (the list goes on) will be instantly familiar.… Continue reading...

WellFit Festival; a fab way to spend Saturday

October 6, 2014
It was a wet start to the weekend. I opened my curtains and looked out at a grey, drizzly and rather dismal looking day. Normally, this sight would make me feel a tad dreary but on this occasion I had the exciting prospect of the WellFit Festival, organised by SBC and Frame to look forward to. I actually felt smug that, unlike many Londoners who would be wondering what to do on this wet day, I had an awesome action-packed schedule ahead involving eating lots of delicious healthy food, trying fun workouts and listening to inspiring talks form health and fitness experts – all under one dry warm roof.… Continue reading...

6 Vitamin Shots

April 7, 2014
I’m an active girl and although I believe the best way to replenish energy comes from staying hydrated and eating a well balanced diet, I  have to admit that occasionally,  I need an additional quick and easy pick me up (Friday afternoon being a prime example). I was initially dubious when I was introduced to 6 Vitamin Shots, thinking that they would be yet another sports energy drink, which are full of sugar, ineffective and my personal nemesis. Then I saw that the 6 Vitamin Shots have been developed to banish fatigue and welcome a new way of delivering that much needed energy boost.… Continue reading...

Dancing at Pineapple Studios

October 22, 2013
I’m always on the lookout for fun active sociable things to do in London.  Pineapple Studios is world famous for its prestigious dance standards so I thought what could be better than learning how to move it and shake it with the pros? I booked myself, my boyfriend, sister and her other half into a private lesson with the lovely lanky Alex. As complete beginners we all needed the one-to-one attention. She guided us through the cha cha, jive and waltz explaining some of basic tips about posture, steps (take small ones) etc. The hour whizzed by like the waltz and we all had such a giggle.… Continue reading...
