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 😉

It’s Monday. Don’t Forget to Be Awesome.

Happy Sunday ladies,

I hope you’ve had a relaxing couple days and are surviving this mini heat wave. I think the kind people at Posh Rosh on Fulham Road might still be laughing about the sweaty American who busted in on Friday and in one fell swoop cleared their shelves of all remaining fans, kiddie pools and sunscreen. Saturday evening we strolled over to Bishops Park for a viewing of throwback film Empire Records. Yes, this film is the very reason you tell your coworkers or husband “don’t let the man get you down” and “damn the man” after any grueling day at work. The setup was perfect: £10 gets you a seat with plenty of leg room on the grass under the stars with your blanket, cooler of cold drinks and takeout. I’m hard pressed to imagine a more perfect way to spend a lazy summer Saturday night. My, what an exciting life I lead 😉 Popupscreens.co.uk

Here’s what’s in store for the week:

Monday: Circuit: 45 seconds each station with plenty of water breaks to beat the heat!

Tuesday: Howdy Partner: pair up and hold each other accountable in this brand new partner workout to tone you from head to toe.

Thursday: Stretch and Sweat: get long and lean by alternating Pilates-inspired moves with plyometric cardio exercises to end the week with a gorgeous glow 😉
