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!
Don’t know what TRX is? TRX is a suspension trainer that uses body weight to give you an all over workout. Unlike most resistance machines, body weight exercising requires engagement of the core (rather than isolating particular muscles), therefore TRX is great for core training, as well as everywhere else!
If you haven’t come across TRX before, it’s not exactly obvious to know how to use them. That’s why I’ve brought you my top exercises for the core, arms, legs and bum. Check them out- along with full teaching points- by clicking right here.
Are we allowed to say it yet? It’s the start of December this week so I think so… Christmas is nearly here! Waaa. Yay! Eeeek. I’m sure that there are a lot of mixed emotions out there but I for one am a huge fan of the Christmas period, even if it does mean extra training sessions to work off those seasonal tipples.
We all know that when it comes to Christmas, fitness and health are probably going to take a back seat (or fly out of the window altogether), however I’m here to help you keep on track whilst still enjoying the party period. I believe in balance and if you’re going to make it through the season without throwing in the fitness towel, then balance really is what you need. Here are my top tips on how to have a happy healthy(ish) Christmas:
For anybody looking to loose weight and/or increase their fitness, I’ve designed a workout just for you! Created to build up a sweat, get your heart pumping and most of all burn fat, this is my ultimate Fat Burning Workout and it launched on YouTube today.
See what’s in store in the short clip below or head over to YouTube- Kirby Akindeinde for the full routine.
P.S. It’s another no equipment workout that you can take with you anywhere and everywhere, so there are absolutely no excuses! 😉
My YouTube fitness channel launched yesterday with an exercise video that is sure to work your core. It’s also one that leaves you with no excuses to miss another workout ever again… Sorry!
The Water Bottle Workout can be done at home, outdoors, in the gym- even at work if you fancy- and requires only yourself and a 2l water bottle! Cheap, effective and convenient!
Why not treat your body to the workout that it deserves and give it a go yourself? There’s a cheeky little snippet below and you can see the full workout right here.

The most common question that I get asked is what I do to work out, so it only makes sense that I start showing you guys right here! Here’s a cheeky little insight into some of the exercises that I use to help work my tummy… Don’t forget to keep your abs tight and make sure all movement is being driven from them. I’m definitely going to make this a regular feature, however if there’s anything particular that you would like to see (bum, legs, arms or more tum?) then let me know below and I’ll get filming! Happy toning! x
P.S. Abs are built 80% on diet, so if you’re not seeing results it’s probably time to look at what you’re eating.
It’s been a while and I must apologise for my time away. The past few weeks have been super busy for me (a few days in Morocco with New Balance, lots and lots and lots of work at ASOS HQ, a trip to the tropical island of Cyprus and of course, a good few work outs in between)! But I am back and raring to fill your feeds with fitness, fashion and health goodness once again, in the usual Tigeress style.
For me, Cyprus involved ten days of amazing company, yummy food, beach runs, belly laughing until my eyes were watering and abs felt like I’d just hit the sit ups, more food, surf waves, jungle shoots, sun lounging and last but not least, a whole lot of cheeky cocktails. Oh, and did I mention food? Doing my favourite things with some of my favourite people- heaven!
Now I’m back in the crazy city of London and although I was beyond excited to catch up with all of my UK friends, the fact was that I couldn’t face another rich meal or alcoholic beverage. My body had quite simply had enough. But what do you do in the city to socialise that doesn’t involve food and/or drink? Hmmm… good question!
Unfortunately, in modern culture, the main forms of entertainment involve binge drinking and over indulging. True, no? But things are about to change as exercise and health become the new ways to catch up with your bestie. People are realising that they don’t have to sacrifice health to have fun. I strongly believe in balance and I’m not saying to ditch the drink or abandon eating out entirely, but next time you’re planning on meeting up with friends, why not try a goss whilst running in the park or over a smoothie at the local juice bar?
What did I decide to do to catch up with the girls on my return? Roller disco! More belly laughing, fab company, a whole lot of fun, exercising without even realising it and no hangover the next day… Looking after your body is quickly becoming the new way to be happy, and what better way to do so that with friends by your side! It’s time to get your health on, tigers and I’m here to help you out along the way! xx
Who knows somebody who just simply ‘doesn’t have time to exercise’? Or perhaps that’s you? If you’re an offender of using that line before then I suggest that you close your eyes now because research from a recent Canadian study has just blown that excuse right out of the water.
Accordingly to the findings, it only takes one minute of exercise per week to improve your fitness! 20 seconds of sprinting three times per week, improved fat-burning ability in just six weeks.
I love exercise way too much to only exercise for one minute per week, but it’s good to know that if I’m super hectic and my usual exercise routine is taking a back seat, that I just need to get my sprint on! Perhaps that dreaded dash for the bus is actually a small fitness blessing in disguise? xx
