Spring Clean Your Activewear

Spring is here! The warmth of the sun gives me freedom to show off the hard work I did in the dark winter months and this means one thing and one thing only – what should I wear? When it comes to fitness and performance wear I totally swear by Stella McCartney for Adidas. I absolutely believe it is worth the price. It fits my body really well, it is extremely comfortable, it is beautiful to look at and a joy to wear. It is designed to keep dry and keep cool and that’s exactly what it does.

Get your burpee ON and join the Greatist’s 31-Day Burpee Challenge  I am one of those people who looses focus if something is too easy. This is certainly true for my exercise. When I face something I am  not able to do very well it really spurs me into action. The path to mastering something, be that a skill, routine, fitness challenge, diet challenge, is what  gets most of us buzzing and motivates us to do achieve the best we can. When I did my first burpee I hated it, it was an ‘OMG I hate this moment’ but then every time I did more and more burpees I was getting better at them and hated them less. I won’t go as far as to say I like them now but I have grown to like the benefits of this pretty awesome exercise.

You can start by joining the Greatist’s 31-Day Burpee Challenge  ‘there is definitely …
