#FitnessInspo: Our Day at Be:Fit London

Last Friday, we went along to the Be: Fit London event at the Business Design Centre in London;  a 3 day health and fitness festival for women.

Featuring motivational talks, the hottest classes, and a huge exhibition including premium sponsor, Reebok, here’s what we did:

We started the day with Tara’s Strala Yoga, based on her background in ballet. After encouraging us to ‘find a good place and take a deep breath’, we felt calmer, more supple and ready to take on the day.

Dan’s Tips for an A List Bod:

A positive mentality: Exercise is just another word for movement – dance, run, use your arms, just move more

Try something new: Yoga, dance, martial arts – try using your body in a new way

Like yourself: Respect your body, focus less on how you look and more on using exercise to reconnect with your body

Nourish your body: Don’t crash diet. Eat fresh and cook real food

Confidence: Have a confident mindset that will lead to a better body image

Tally, Victoria and Zanna are Girl Gains.

These ladies are all about positivity and girl power – plus a bootyshaking playlist and motivational cheers like ‘you look amazing!’

Girl Gains’ Tips for Making Workouts Fun:

Keep it simple. Don’t overstretch yourself, just move more, walk instead of taking the bus, or use fitness watches 

Download a water alert app. Make sure you stay hydrated

Get 8 hours sleep. Stress can help cause bloating so get enough sleep and try to relax

Don’t use scales. If you base your goals around how you look, you’ll never be satisfied.

Keep yourself accountable. Have an open conversation with friends and family to ask for support.
