Autumn Renew Pilates Routine

I love Autumn but I think it’s a time we can sometimes feel a bit of of wack with no clear focus and direction. Summer and September seemed to have whizzed by and we are now heading towards Christmas and the new year but not quite at the exciting countdown part yet. There’s still so much of this year to go yet where we can stay motivated and productive, It’s not too late to set goals, take care of yourself and feel incredible for these last few months of the year. I’ve taken on some fitness health challenges of my own but Pilates is my bread and butter and my go to way of moving when I’m feeling a little out of balance. So take 10, refocus and join me in this Autumn Renew Pilates Routine… 

My Studio To Street Spring Essentials

With more and more of us making fitness a huge part of our lives, I’m finding that most of my catch-ups with friends now include not only food but the all important new gym class or workout too. The last few catch ups I’ve had in fact have been trying a new boxing class with my bestie, taking my sis in law to her first Psycle class for moral support and getting through a F45 class with a new blogger babe…

I’ve got a bit of a food, lifestyle, style post for you today. I’m a huge foodie and love discovering new places to eat out. I’m someone who gets overly excited about a menu and the design of the plates and mugs in a restaurant. I am also finding that places in London are now creating incredible menus for health conscious foodies as well as their fellow not so health conscious partners, friends, dads and I feel like a brunch has something for everyone…

The Every Day Pilates Routine To Feel Amazing

My clients still say to me all the time how much better they feel after their sessions and it’s that feeling that you sometimes can’t even describe, you just feel lovely in your body and mind after a Pilates class. I try to encourage my clients to do a little Pilates routine every day as a little a day keeps the pains away (hehe); it also sets me up for a fabulous day ahead.

Body Confidence From The Inside Out

It’s such a nice feeling when you feel body confident and you sass around feeling positive and on top of the world but then there’s days when you can’t help but feel negative about your body and judge every little imperfection. Guys and girls have this I’m sure, we are all human. Of course there’s things we can do like eating well, working out, wearing cute jeans that can help us but ultimately it’s a feeling that comes from the inside out and it’s based solely on your own perspective…

Okay so there’s soooo many New Year New You plans, programmes, diets, offers out there this time of year and they are all fabulous if you need a kick start but try not to get sucked into signing up or buying something you don’t need. You already have the knowledge inside you to be healthy, fit and happy in 2017. Most of us know exactly how to tone up, lose weight, eat well but it’s actually applying it to our life that is the difficult part.

There’s a hot new collaboration that has hit the high street and you’ll know all about it if you attended my Pilates and cocktails event last week which is still giving me a buzz when I think about it. It was so lovely to meet lots of you, teach you Pilates and introduce you to this stylish collection. J. Crew and New Balance have teamed up and created activewear to die for. The colours pop, the designs are arty and the cuts are stylish. I’m in love and my Christmas wish list is filling up with it…

So we are still a good solid nine weeks away from Christmas and honestly I’ve been feeling a bit like I just want this year to be over so I can have a fresh new year ahead of me. I had to give myself a little talking to as I am not one to wish time away and I know I don’t need a fresh year or even a new week to start living to my fullest and achieving some goals. So for the last quarter of the year we can choose to get lazy and succumb to the Christmas slump or we can pull ourselves up, make exciting plans and feel the best we’ve felt all year because why not? So here’s some ways I think we can end 2016 feeling healthy, happy and ready to start 2017 ahead of the game…

Activewear: This Trend Is Here To Stay

As we head towards cold rainy dark mornings, it becomes increasingly more challenging to get the trainers on a 6am for a class or run but I really believe if you look the part you feel the part. Stylish activewear gets me excited to workout and if I can grab brunch in it with the girls after then I’m so much more likely to get out the door. With so so much choice for activewear nowadays it’s hard to know where to start, stylist and co-founder of Style Sportif Jemma Bolt kindly shares her top five activewear trends. Just wait for the Adidas jacket (heart shaped eyes emoji). Jemma can you please style me everyday…
