The Cure For Anything Is Salt Water. Sweat, Tears, or the Sea.

A wise man once made a quote so famous it made it on a Sweaty Betty bag,

#3 will be making his/her arrival in early March! For all of you who will still be bootcamping with me at that point, rest assured class will be running as usual at least halfway through February. After the baby arrives I will plan on taking 8 weeks off before resuming class in early May. Your memberships will freeze if you are on a 3 month plan and I will help coordinate your informal workouts in the park. If anyone could use some tips on managing morning sickness, screw ginger biscuits and peppermint tea. There’s an app for that! Research Nevasic, the app I downloaded on iTunes which has been a game-changer for me in managing morning sickness. All you need is your iPhone, earphones, and 27 minutes a day. Read all about it here: http://nevasic.com

One more week of friends, family, and beach yoga to cure all my ails before we head back! As much as I love London and can’t wait to get back, it’s going to be hard to leave home this time. We have had the most incredible time here in Newport, RI catching up with friends, family, and our favorite beach:

The plan is to resume class on Tuesday, September 9th. That week we will hold two classes: Tabata Tuesday, and Cardio Zen on Thursday. Can’t wait to catch up and break a sweat with you all!!

Has your membership lapsed or you have no plans to come back to class and/or otherwise would like to be removed from the email list? If so, please shoot me an email, I like to make sure I’m not spamming anyone! If you would like to stay on even though you’ve moved on, I will aim to make it worth your while with recipes, workouts, embarrassing and ridiculous stories about my life, and more 😉

This and that.

Hello ladies,

I hope you all had a lovely few “days off” (who am I kidding?).

Our weekend included some pool time at the Lido http://www.royalparks.org.uk/parks/hyde-park/sport-in-hyde-park/serpentine-lido, the fair on Parsons Green, complete with creepy carnival ride operators, face painters, and Whole Foods samples, and then… (Drum roll)… the most luxurious nap of my adult life that lasted a full hour and forty five minutes today while my kids were both sleeping (Applause)! Oh how I love a lazy weekend nap in my ripe old age.

Here’s what we have in store for the week:

Monday: Summer Slimdown Band Workout: this one is for all of you on the 6 Week Summer Slimdown which starts tomorrow! I’ll be demonstrating each of the exercises that you’re on the hook to do 2-3x a week for the next 6 weeks. If you’re on the challenge this one is not to be missed!

Tuesday: Long and lean ladder workout! Get ready to hustle, this workout is a nonstop sweat-fest.

Thursday: Hottie Pilates! For anyone needing to feel their best for that upcoming summer holiday, pop this class into your diary. This workout combines the most effective Pilates moves with sizzling cardio drills to deliver an all-over glow for the weekend ahead.

Calling all music lovers: Ainsley’s good friend Kath is offering piano lessons to anyone interested. How fun! Here are the details:

Piano lessons for adults! She can come to you and babies/children are more than welcome to sit in. Her students range in age from 20s to 60+ and they play anything from the classics to Gaga. My main aim to show everyone how wonderful playing music can be so it’s completely stress free and all fun!

Referral perks! In just over a year we have had just under 200 women (and even men!) try our class. We are just 9 members short of reaching this number. If you are the member who refers the 200th Buggy Bootcamper, you receive 10 free classes! So grab your friends and drag them along to class. With any luck they’ll love it and you’ll be working out for free 🙂

Cheers,
Kerri
