September saw the launch of the first Bodylicious Healthy Eating Weekend Retreat in the heart of the Cotswolds. Headed by Naomi Harris, Spoon My Curves is a compilation of everything Naomi has learned on her own health journey.
After overcoming thyroid cancer, which took having her thyroid removed, Naomi went on a mission to overhaul her life in the pursuit of optimal health – starting with nutrition. After wiping all dairy, sugar, gluten and frozen fish fingers from the diets of the entire family, she quickly came to realise that the mental toll of maintaining such a stringent regime was outweighing the benefits of such a clean diet. This was when she came to find the beauty and necessity of the seemingly elusive concept the whole wellness industry is touting right now: balance.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation London
If you love sweating it out in group fitness classes and value your workouts for the challenge and mental release too, then you might be better off sticking with your gym membership. But if you drag yourself to the gym purely to reap aesthetic results or if you want all the strength with a lot less of the work than EPulsive could be the solution for you.
During the workout, the electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) manipulates muscles through a special vest, that bypasses the nervous system, which usually controls muscle contraction resulting in 98% muscle engagement, this is apparent when your regular air squats and dumbbell-less tricep extensions suddenly become challenging.
Third Space Tower Bridge
Last year was all about group fitness: ClassPass landed in London, soon followed by SoMuchMore and pay-as-you-go boutique studios took the place of ubiquitous monthly-membership chain gyms. This year though, is set to see the re-emergence of the club.
The #ClubNotGym ethos makes a lot of sense. In an anonymous city, Londoners are wanting their gyms to offer them familiarity, comfort and a sense of belonging.
Enter The Third Space.
Tower Bridge, the first of the chain’s four clubs to receive the highly awaited refit, is characterised most notably by its location. Falling (#legdayproblems), with post-sauna, flushed cheeks and fresh on that endorphin high, through the club doors and out onto the Southbank into the shadow of Tower Bridge is nothing if not inspiring.
