Banana Bread

11am on a rainy Sunday. I walk out of the gym after a cardio session, and my friend sends me picture of his delicious looking banana bread. Seed planted. I had to have banana bread. Today. Now when I look at recipes online, especially vegan ones, they sometimes have such crazy ingredients, or are full of sugar, that it puts me off even trying! But after some searching today, I decided to just go with Read more…

The Studio turns ONE!

A year ago this week, I opened my doors to train you lovely people of Barcelona, after lots of construction work to make this space exactly how I wanted it! It was a dream come true!! Hard work started to pay off! And now as I reach more milestones and so many memories/laughs/goals/confidence this place has given us over this first year, I feel so proud of myself, but mostly, of all my incredible clients Read more…

Start Now!

“The holiday season is nearly here. I know I’m going to be eating more than usual. Why bother trying to stay healthy or get in shape right now? I’ll just make it my New Year’s resolution’ Right around this time of year, so many of us decide we will just give up and give in. Because we do this so often, year after year, we feel completely justified in putting off our goals for another Read more…

Botswana

THE trip of a lifetime. I say this after most trips, but WOW, this was something truly special. Every since I was young and lucky enough to spend some time with my family in South Africa, I fell in love with everything safari, animals, nature and African! Supporting my client and friend Michiel to his journey to Ironman over the past two years has been a crazy adventure, and we made a pact that once Read more…

Switch It Up!

We all have our favourite exercises, but what if I told you it is OK to want to do something totally different! Not just to keep our minds from getting bored, but also our bodies – our muscles. Life for me has been about balance the past few years. Getting to know my body and also the ups and downs that comes with that. Some weeks I absolutely love nothing more than getting super sweaty Read more…

ICELAND

ICELAND – off we go. The travelling trainer life commences again, this time for a short trip. I was so excited! I absolutely love what I do, but every few months when I go away, I feel SO refreshed coming back. It gets my creative juices flowing, and inspires me a lot! Iceland was an incredible experience. What a country! Watching my client & friend Michiel complete his first marathon was great, he did incredibly Read more…

THANK YOU!

Ahhhh when I hear how much people love the studio, and my training its so overwhelming sometimes! It seems unreal that something I actually love doing, I can also be good at too! Without sounding like a complete big head (ok, maybe a little). Everything I do with the studio – the space, the decor, the training sessions is all with the clients in mind. I have been there and get it – its daunting Read more…

Perfection is so

Sometimes you just have to take advantage of the sunrise light for a selfie… I was talking to the girls the other evening about how we all change, and it got me thinking just how much I’ve changed my perceptions of myself. I used to obsess with my ‘imperfections’ and do so many things to try and make my face more ‘perfect’. From fillers, to every weird skincare routine you could think of, dying my Read more…

Soul Cycle, Los Angeles

I always look to do new things when I am in new places, and LA was no different. I knew about Soul Cycle from instagram, and some people who I follow rave about it. With so many of their studios nearby, I signed Michiel and I up to the Saturday morning class. Soul Cycle is indoor cycle workout classes with a twist – it is done in the dark, to high intensity music, you move Read more…
