I’ll admit it, I’ve been in a bit of an exercise rut this summer. Actually, that’s not true – I started the summer on a high, hitting some weightlifting goals and keeping my running speed up. But a hot day where I pushed myself too hard in half-marathon training gave me a knee injury that has put me off going heavy or fast, pretty much wiping out my usual exercise routine. After a couple of weeks feeling sorry for myself, I decided that I could still do yoga (SO much yoga) and I could head to MoveGB and see what else was out there to satisfy my exercise cravings.
Following on from last week’s post, I wanted to do a quick round-up of my fave activities that I do using Move GB. Now, I’ve had lots of fun trying lots of different things over the past couple of years, but these are my tippety top recommendations, and also how I’m currently spending my workout week.

A couple of years ago, a friend started talking about this great new thing called Move GB. He reckoned he was paying the same amount of money a month as he would on a gym membership, but that he could do activities across the city. I was loving my gym membership back then, doing a couple of classes a week to make it economical, but when he asked if we wanted to give it a go on a free friend trial, I thought it might be worth trying it out. And boy, am I glad I did!
For the first time ever, this Christmas I was looking forward to being healthy. Yes, really. Some of you might know already that this year has been massive for me in terms of fitness, and I love that feeling of being in control of my body so much that I was keen to keep up momentum through the festive period. So when I saw that Carly Rowena was hosting a Killer Christmas Workout on the run-up to Christmas, I just knew it would be the perfect way to start the season right. View Full Post
I was terrible at ballet when I was small. I mean, really terrible. I remember prancing around our school hall thinking I was about to become the next Billy Elliot, before catching sight of myself in the mirror and thinking that maybe I would stick with swimming after all. So when I was invited to try barrecore, the ballet-inspired fitness class that has spread across London like wildfire, I thought it might be time to once more try and gain some elegance whilst working out.
