A lot of people are scared of sprinting and avoid it like the plague. It’s a form of high intensity exercise and it hurts! But like everything, the more you do it the more your body acclimatises and adapts and it becomes less of an ordeal. (I promise you!) It’s also a highly efficient form of training especially for those who are time poor.

June is heating up a treat and London is full of sunshine, style and fab fitness offerings. Here’s what I’m currently loving atm… 1. SKC The South Kensington Club is every bit as chic and stylish as it promised it would be – if not more.

That’s not to mention the inspiring Voyager Club events plus opportunities to swim in Stromboli volcano, hike in the Alps and bike in the Tuscan hills.… Continue reading...
