When it comes to fitness and working out, Blog Reader, I’m never one to shy away from the hard work required to get my heart pumping and my muscles moving. Until fairly recently I was a huge fan of Pilates reformer classes, but I haven’t been able to find a studio near my new home just yet so I’m back at the gym trying out some new methods to stay in shape. I recently discovered TRX; a training system that leverages your body weight along with gravity to help you work out with different levels of resistance. It’s quite a challenge and this, along with the boyfriend’s help (it’s pretty handy going out with someone who used to be a personal trainer*) I’m probably the fittest I’ve been for a while.
One thing guaranteed to get me exercising regularly is having some great kit to work out in. I’m a huge fan of MICHI New York for some of the most fashionable work out gear I have ever set my eyes on – here I am (still) wearing designer Michelle Watson’s Illusion Legging with my new Nike ’windrunner’ and vest from ASOS. The gym is one of the rare times I do colour, it spurs me on – this jacket is lightweight and perfect for running inside and out this spring. I confess I am cheating a little here wearing my ASH wedge trainers in this post. I revert to my ASICS for working out but I wanted to show the ASH sneakers because I wear them constantly – if you don’t yet own a pair of ASH check out the full range here.
A little bit of fitness inspiration for you today, to start your week!
I’ve got a little break coming up this weekend, Blog Reader – I’m heading to one of the islands off the coast of England on Wednesday so stay tuned to my Instagram to see pictures. Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
*As you might imagine there are pros and cons to this when I’m not motivated lol.
