New Balance have launched a brand new trainer, the Fresh Foam Crush, and I led a workout for a bunch of fitness babes to put them to the test!
Designed with New Balance’s Fresh Foam technology, the Fresh Foam Crush provides maximum comfort for any high intensity workout. They’re lightweight and have a super sleek design, making them perfect to wear from everyday life straight to the gym.
Paired with New Balance’s Determination apparel, which by the way, is GREAT, we were all fully kitted out and ready to exercise. What was on the menu? My No Equipment, No Excuses full body workout. We started with upper body (I definitely wanted to get upper out of the way!) and then moved to lower body before blasting core. The workout finished with a plank and burpee challenge- tough but every single person smashed it and I’m pretty sure that our new kits helped…
For me, the sign of a good pair of trainers definitely lies in their comfort and honestly, the Fresh Foam Crush is one of the comfiest sports shoes that I have worn yet.
There was nothing but positive feedback on the trainers, with some guests wearing them straight from the event to work! Both my trainers and kit have been subject to a lot of compliments since the launch and a friend of mine is set on buying the leggings, which (along with the rest of the outfit) will be available to buy on ASOS.
It’s no secret that I have a slight obsession with bikinis… I own over 50 different ones (it may be closer to 60 since I last counted), which I’d say is quite a lot to say that I live no where near the beach and that I’m not the most enthusiastic about swimming. I don’t even live in a hot- or warm- country!
Anyway, my love for swimwear means that I know a good few places that are great for picking up some new swim pieces. Here are my fave picks below!
I am obsessed with activewear and athleisure clothing. In fact, I spend most of my life wearing it, which also means that I spend a lot of time in trainers. Yet when it comes to the right footwear outside of the gym and for completing that sports luxe look, it can sometimes be a little tricky.
We all know that shoes can make or break an outfit so here are my favourite non-gym trainers to keep your feet looking on-point this winter.
I joined forces with New Balance last weekend to celebrate the first birthday of their Oxford Street flagship store with giveaways, a live DJ (my friend, fellow blogger and all-round babe, Millie Cotton), special guests and of course cupcakes!
Myself and a selection of other fitness enthusiasts were able to pick out our ultimate running outfits, which I have to say was much harder than it sounds, as there were simply too many cute outfits to choose from! I eventually opted for the New Balance FuelCell in all white, RRP £130, as well as black running tights and this super cute sports bra worn below…
Working with Johno MacCarthy was a dream. One of the most down-to-earth people that I’ve ever met and an amazing photographer at that. If you haven’t seen his work previously, then be prepared to start spotting it everywhere, as this guy has some serious talent and drive (the best combo).
We teamed up on a late summer weekend and shot away around the picturesque streets of Notting Hill. Here’s what we created…
Last night saw the launch of PUMA‘s latest collaboration. This time the brand have chosen to couple up with flamingo-loving honey Sophia Webster and the range is fire!
Kick-starting the launch with a Carnaby Street store party, guests had the chance to get up close and personal with the collection and with Sophia herself, who spent the majority of the night dancing away next to the DJ booth (my kinda girl)!
PUMA’s store looked insane and the VM fitted perfectly with the collaboration. There were unicorns, clouds, plants- the kind you see in those trendy home magazines- neon lights and pink. Lots of pink!
My fave part, after the collection of course, had to be… wait for it… GLITTER COCKTAILS. Just yes. Although I opted for the mocktail option, seeing as I vowed not to drink alcohol this week after a heavy bank hol, I was still excited to have glitter and flowers in my drink. Yum!
I snapped away at the collection so you can see it for yourself below, but basically it’s bold, beautiful and totally Sophia. An amazing, if not unexpected, collaboration between two of London’s hottest brands.
PUMA, Sophia, you have smashed it. Bringing some colour (and I imagine a lot of compliments) to our Autumn wardrobes! Shop the collection for yourself right here.
Best known for their super cute underwear and swimwear collections, Tezenis are out to let the world know about their activewear range. I headed to the Oxford Street store along with a bunch of other fitness blogger babes to find out just what Tezenis have to offer.
Treated to our very own kit, we could experience the collection first hand. Although most of the girls opted for the black matching outfits with floral detail (that were amazingly transitional- think gym to brunch- and fitted like a dream), I chose to go with the Piping Basic Gym Legging in Grey and Pink with the matching Cup Detail Gym Top shown below.
Once we all looked the part, we were ready to work up a sweat with 4fitnesssake‘s Chiara Pellegrino, who by the way, is an absolute hun! The workout used bodyweight and resistance band exercises in a dance-like manner to get our full body aching and toning. We kicked, dipped and jumped our way to the end, finishing with a mini routine combining all of the exercises that we had carried out. Even though I’m not the most natural dancer, it was definitely fun to exercise to the beat and learning the routines seemed to take my mind off of the actual exercise. Bingo!
Of course there was a photographer at hand, Domenic Pendino to be precise, to capture the entire event. See some of Dom’s pictures below…
All in all, the event was lovely. Such a nice way to bring together girls with a real interest in fitness and health. The Tezenis activewear collection is ideal for anybody who wants to feel great when working out without having to spend a bomb on clothing. It’s feminine, flattering and there’s a variety of mix and match styles to choose from. Check it out for yourself right here or pop into store to see the collection in person!
