My 24/7 Yoga Trainer

April 4, 2017
IMG_2954
I love yoga and I love being outside. So now that spring has sprung and the sun is shining, I’m pretty happy taking any opportunity I can to workout in the parks or my garden. Yoga is something I haven’t ever prioritised but whenever I do it I feel so much calmer, more flexible and restored both mentally and physically. So when FeetUp sent me its nifty yoga trainer I couldn’t resist having a play! It’s super easy and quick to assemble and once it’s ready to go you’ll find that having it in the house is like having your very own trainer with you 24/7 – always looking at you as if to say “Go and do some yoga!” I’ve been loving taking the FeetUp Trainer into my garden and going through all the poses on the poster which comes with it.… Continue reading...

Cape Town Living

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset
  This is the third and final instalment of my stint in Cape Town. So far you’ve  seen me hiking up mountains, paragliding off  them and  running, playing and being a yogi on the beach. It’s been action packed and it’s been utter bliss! You’ve also followed my trips through the breathtaking landscapes of the infamous winelands. Cape Town has SO much to offer and it ain’t over yet! Below you’ll see me  supping down the canals, biking in the hills, partying in the natural wonder that is Kirstenbosch botanical gardens and showing off the sights that make Cape Town one of my favourite places in the whole world.… Continue reading...

Introducing the STRESS BUSTING SERIES

January 23, 2017

STRESS. How many times do you hear that word each day? Well, according to WHO (World Health Organisation) we’re hearing it more than ever before. In fact, WHO have declared stress as “the health epidemic of 21st century” costing American businesses an estimated 300 billion US$ per year. Whilst some research argues that a little bit of stress can motivate people and get their creative juices flowing negative stress, however, has proven to have a detrimental effect on many people’s health. Whether it results in physical burnout, mental fatigue, anxiety, emotional imbalance or spiritual emptiness- when we operate on zero, we are as good as useless to ourselves, family and in the workplace.… Continue reading...

I’m Now a fully qualified PT thanks to Train Fitness!

January 19, 2017

It was four weeks of intensive studying and training. The volume of work was vast (worksheets, learning, exams, assessments, client case studies…) and I had no idea that being a PT involved such a comprehensive understanding of physiology, anatomy and nutrition. BUT I  somehow got through it and I actually loved the time geeking up on the human body! (Nerd alert!) But seriously, the more you learn about the body the more remarkable you realise it is and the more you want to continue to learn. Before starting the Gym Instructor and Level 3 PT course Train Fitness provide you access to its online learning programme.… 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...
