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 five-ing the teacher as they went. The camaraderie appealed to me, as well as 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 ramped it up a gear by going to one of the more hipster classes that's all dark lights and pumping music - you know the kind. And I've never looked back. It's my favourite 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 in sight I'm beginning to ask myself what could be in store for 2017?
New year, new you and 12 months ahead. I love the feeling of starting 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 definitely 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 and feel the part even if you’re not feeling it quite yet.
With my Christmas hiatus finally in sight, I can now look forward to some winter sun (have I mentioned my holiday enough?) and there will most definitely be some workout sessions involved. Might as well start as I mean to go on. I mean, if starting the new year on a beach in Thailand isn’t enough to inject generous amounts of good vibes for the year ahead, then I don’t know what will. Don’t be jealous now. No, really!
If you haven’t yet thought that far ahead, or years of breaking your resolutions by Jan 4th have come back to haunt you, then perhaps we can inspire you for 2017. Look out for all of our workout features coming soon – and we’ve even included sweat-proof make up this year so even that Saturday morning face can’t hold you back now.
