The Re:Mark: Workout Vibes
This time last year, I made a resolution to take up spinning. I was jealous of all of those girls that skipped out of the spinning studio in just a bra top and shorts, with honed abs and legs, high-fiveing the instructor as they went. The camaraderie appealed to me – and, okay, so did the smug looks of just completing a renowned hardcore class. Oh and the abs would be good too!
Fast forward a year, and I'm a regular spinner. I survived my first class – and even amped it up a gear by going to one of the more hipster classes, all dark lights and pumping music (you know the kind). And I've never looked back! It's my fave workout, my therapy, and 45 minutes of solid me time.
I think it might be the first resolution I've ever kept. And with New Year's in sight, I'm starting to ask myself what could be in store for 2017?
New year, new you and 12 months ahead. I love the feeling of starting with a clean slate and closing the door on the previous year. And if 2017 is going to be your year to take up a new sport, then we have all the essentials in store right now. After all, "fake it ‘til you make it" is def the way to roll when trying something for the first time.
They say you should make your summer body in winter (**immediately puts mince pie down**) but that’s easier said than done.
All those cold winter nights and dark mornings don’t exactly scream "workout" to me! But with a new gym kit, swimsuit, joggers and an array of mix-and-match looks, you can at least look the part (even if you’re not feeling it quite yet).
With my Christmas break finally on the horizon, I can now look forward to some winter sun (have I mentioned my vacay enough?) – and there will most definitely be some workout sessions involved. Might as well started on that path... I mean, if starting the new year on a beach in Thailand isn’t enough to create good vibes for the year ahead, then I don’t know what will! Don’t be jealous now. No, really!
Haven’t yet thought that far ahead? Have years of breaking your resolutions by Jan 4th have come back to bite you in the bum? Then perhaps we can inspire you for 2017... Look for all of our upcoming workout features – we’ve even included sweat-proof makeup this year, so even that Saturday morning face can’t hold you back now!
