LIFE: Fit in London

Lately I’ve been working on a super exciting project with sportswear designer Charli Cohen and personal trainer Christina Howells. Meet That Girl London – a high-intensity workout for busy women on the go, in GIF format!

Being in Manchester, I work remotely on the project, mainly playing with the social media, blog, and backend of the website; but last week I had the opportunity to go to London to meet with Charli and discuss the project and brand requirements in more detail. I took the chance to try out the super-hyped Psycle class (read my review here, no phones allowed in class so no sweaty selfie!), have a nosy around Kensington’s incredible Equinox gym, and also go to Whole Foods. It’s almost a good thing that we don’t have Whole Foods up North as I would undoubtedly be spending a lot of money there! This time I managed to curb my spending at seven quid, but could have easily bought half the shop.

I also enjoyed a few freshly pressed juices, which are pretty readily available in London. I do love it down there and it certainly suits my lifestyle – but I won’t be moving away from Manchester anytime soon! I can’t cope with the stuffy, claustrophobic tube; if I was a London-dweller it would be a run-commute all the way. For now enjoy my ‘fitness tourist’ photos – I still need to try out the rest of the capital’s fitness frenzies, so I will be visiting again soon for sure!

    That Girl London is SUCH a good idea, it’s so unique and clever! Good luck with it, I really hope it goes well. If I manage to build my fitness up I may even give it a go! I’m glad you enjoyed London but you’re so right about the tubes, I wish I didn’t have to commute everywhere! x

      WELL, I don’t think you need to be fit to start That Girl to be honest as it’s all at your own pace, but I’d check with your doctor first to make sure it’s okay. Yeah I’m really not sure how I’d cope having to get the tube every day.. When I visited once I made my friend get off the tube at a random stop I felt so sick. Eek.
