Women’s Health Editorial: Underneath Your Clothes

May 5, 2015

wh_002-2

My latest editorial for Women’s Health is all about what to wear underneath your clothing when training. From multi strap bras to high waisted briefs all while sticking to my favourite colour palette of monochrome with a touch of melange.

My must have item from this shoot is the Stella track top from adidas. (See above) The matching track pants aint bad either 😉

P.S Did anyone get up early on Sunday morning to watch the Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather fight? How darling is Pacman, he’s still the champion in my heart #TeamPacman all the way!

Back At It: Full Body Workout

September 24, 2014

So I’ve been pretty lazy over the past couple of weeks with regards to exercising and staying in shape. Thankfully I’ve been walking and cycling around to all my meetings so things haven’t gone too downhill.

But enough is enough! It’s time to pull myself towards myself and start working out again. Below is a simple full body workout I really enjoy and depending how many times you stop to rest it should take you around 45min to complete. Best part of all… you don’t even need a gym.

I’m in Durban the moment, just arrived at my hotel, as I have a two day shoot here and I even packed my skipping rope so I can work out right here in my hotel room. No excuses this time!

If you have any questions about the below workout or what each exercise means just leave me a comment and I’ll get back with a more detailed description.

LOVE MY NEW NIKES

August 27, 2013

I am the fussiest person alive when it comes down to shoe shopping. I am constantly oohing and aahing wether the shoe I have chosen is the correct one. So you can imagine me trying to shop for a new set of trainers for running, it was almost impossible, took me a year to finally choose a pair and commit to them.

I was so confused with all the different options and colours which are now available to us shoppers. And then they introduced the whole barefoot run and stable run and and and…. nope all too much for me.

So this weekend I finally committed myself to a pair of beautiful pink and grey Nikes and boy are they oh so comfy!

Because of the way I run, pressure on the outside of my heel, I have to wear ‘special’ shoes, Nike have created a range called the ‘Stability Ride’ which has dynamic support which is great for me as I am a pronation runner. Therefore if I had to run wearing their ‘Barefoot’ or ‘Neutral’ range I would damage my knees.

It’s important to know what kind of foot you have and what kind of runner you are, here’s a great link which explains everything: http://www.run-today.com/content/PronationDownloadRunToday.pdf

Make sure you wearing the right kind of trainers :)

Happy Tuesday
