Get-fit-fast super class gyms are fast becoming all the rage, and there’s a new player in town. Lunge forward, F45 Training.
An Australian-born phenomenon, F45 Training, as the name suggests, focuses on intense 45 minute HIIT workouts that hit the body hard. Classes alternate each day from cardio to resistance-based training, but each follow a HIIT format.
Now F45 Training is popping up all over London, with the first opening on Tottenham Court Road. I couldn’t resist trying it out, so I signed up for a week’s trial. 7 days of HIIT, EEK!
I was nervous as hell on my first day; would I make it? Would I vomit? What if I couldn’t do something? But the friendly staff help put you at ease and the other members are all eager to help out newbies.
Have you heard? Cognac is making a comeback. The coolest cocktails in town can now be found at the new Martell Bar at London’s famous Mondrian hotel.
Cognac has been given a bad rep over the years; banished to the realms of old man drinks with a taste too strong for the casual drinkers. But Martell is aiming to change this perception. I was invited down to the Mondrian to check out the new bar and to discover the new cocktails on offer. Spoiler… they are great!
Samuel Johnson rightly said ‘When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life’. There is so much to do in this great city, including some of the best shopping in the world. I got the chance to enjoy a day at the London Designer Outlet with my sister to check out everything this retail centre has to offer.
A solid post-gym skincare routine is vital to keeping you looking fresh and healthy. So I’ve compiled a list of five post-gym moisturisers for you to try. The build up of sweat during a workout, plus washing and scrubbing in the shower, can leave the skin dry and irritated, so it’s important to follow your workout with some key hydration (that includes drinking lots of water, too!).
I love France, and this was my first time heading to the south of the country. With the snow-capped backdrop of the Alps, the Cote d’Azur is a stunning location and the entire Riviera is a place to behold. Keep reading and check out my first travel vlog!
In the fourth and final part of my Art of Chill series with Gillette, I’m looking at the importance of making time for yourself and the things you love.
It’s more than simply finding time to unwind; from hobbies to volunteering and learning new skills, ‘me time’ is about focusing on yourself, broadening your horizons and reaching the best version of you.
I’m Neil, a London-based editor (by day) and blogger (in the gaps between!) and here’s where you’ll find out what I get up to.
