Why Every Runner Should Start Pilates ASAP!

Thu, April 27, 2017

Lately I've been blogging about my increase in incedental walking while travelling, sometimes up to 15-20 kilmoetres per day! What I've also noticed is an increase in muscle tightness when doing my daily Pilates sessions, stretches that I normally move through with ease have become more challenging to me than ever, which has been a big wake up call! For someone who is reliant on optimal flexibility for their day job, I now truly appreciate the non-negotiable necessity for Pilates when doing any repetitive cardio! Whether you’re a seasoned marathon enthusiast, a casual jogger or walking is your main mode of transportation, this one is for you!

Designed For Busy Lifestyles - Your Seven Day Workout Schedule

Sun, April 23, 2017

Hi Everyone! What a busy, hectic and awe-inspiring week it's been! Two birthdays, Easter, four countries (Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, Poland) and working on our new Winter Challenge for the Online Studio, coming free to all members in June, has certainly seen us burning the candle at both ends! It's time like these that I personally take great pleasure in using the Online Studio and not having to waste time locating and getting to a gym or trying to book in for a class somewhere.   I smile to myself, knowing that, as members, no-one needs to leave home to get their daily exercise. No battling the elements, no running for shelter or venturing out in the dark, no looking for babysitters or finding something "gym worthy" to wear! Working out from the convenience of home, your office or even your hotel room, at your own convenience, certainly does have its advantages!   I'm looking forward to joining you all for a great week of workouts! See you on the mat!

How I Lost Weight Whilst Travelling: Easy Steps You Can Implement Anywhere in The World!

Tue, April 18, 2017

One of the biggest pleasures of travelling, and of life, is food. Europe is second to none with it’s gastronomic offerings, and with all of the indulgence on offer, it’s easy to assume that you’ll have a little extra baggage other than your suitcases! This week our apartment in Belgium had a set of scales, the first one I’ve seen since we started travelling in August last year. You can imagine my complete and utter shock when I was around 3-4 kilograms lighter than the last time I weighed myself! I didn’t necessarily set out to lose any weight and I’ve never consciously dieted or restricted myself, but when I really thought about what exactly I had been doing to achieve this, I realised that anyone, no matter whether you are travelling or not, can implement these easy, achievable steps to not only lose weight, but also maintain your perfect weight!
