Who wants to have a fit and fabulous 2016?

As you all may know I have a massive love for anything fitness… From running.. to hot yoga, you will find me 80% of the time in my fitness clothing.

Through the years I have tried many different brands of fitness clothing but when it comes to looking super stylish whilst also having amazing fitness technology, my 2 favourite brands have to be Sweaty Betty and Hoxton Haus.

Sweaty Betty’s store in Wilmslow is my go-to for most of my fitness needs, even down to my hair bobbles. 😀 They have some super cute sports bras and crop tops and they sell THE most amazing leggings – so thick (perfect for my outdoor workouts and runs) and in some beautiful prints too.

They currently have a 50% off sale – be sure to check them out http://www.sweatybetty.comScreen Shot 2015-12-28 at 23.20.01

Now my newest find is Hoxton Haus, the only place to sell this brand in Cheshire is Young Venom in Hale… I am obsessed with this brand, their range includes, cosy jumpers and hoodies for throwing on after a workout, trendy bra tops for that ‘sport luxe’ look and leggings for either the gym or lounging in. All of their range is so versatile, I can’t wait for the next season to arrive ❤

My passion for exercise is definitely bigger than the gorgeous clothes I get to wear. I try to work out between 5-6 days a week for at least 1 hour.

Here is a little insight in what my workouts include:

Mondays I do a 1 hour circuit training class at my local gym, this includes lots of running, weights and cardio.. I love the atmosphere of this class, being able to workout with lots of like minded people.

Tuesdays I have a Personal Training session with Ainslee from ELITE PRO (celebrity trainer), in these sessions we normally work on my running – trying to get my speed up, doing lots of hill sprints and interval training. He specialises in track and field as he used to run with Olympic Athletes, so he knows what he’s talking about.

Wednesdays I do an Insanity class at the gym. I LOVE this class.. it releases any tension I have after a long days work. Its a tough workout but you feel great afterwards.

Friday I normally go for a 5K run… running has never been my thing, but I have found it is the best type of exercise for loosing weight. I started running 5k and taking around 5 walk breaks throughout my run but now I can run all the way round without any breaks now… anything is possible.

Saturday I do ballet… I have danced since I was 2 years old and have found I just can’t stop! Its a nice slow form of exercise compared to the rest of my workouts.. but it definitely makes my muscles work hard.

Sundays I go for a L O N G 10k run. it takes me just under 1 hour to get round.. which I am happy with for now but I’m working on my speed with Ainslee to try and get it down to 45 minutes *Challenge accepted* Followed by a Hot Yoga class at Yoga Life UK in Wilmslow.

Now for 2016 I would like everyone to think of something new they would like to try, find out where you can do it and HAVE A GO!

I am going to try out pilates at RUNWAY PILATES in Altrincham in January, so I will let you all know how I get on.

I hope my blog has given you a bit of motivation to have an ACTIVE 2016!

Lots of love Cheshire Gossip Girl xoxo
