Don't ever be afraid to take risks

The word ‘risk’ may instantly give you heart palpitations. It may con jour up negative connotations. Why is that?

As a woman myself, we seem to be stereotypical less inclined to take risks. Men are typically seen as the ‘risk takers’ which is probably something to do with our prehistoric male ancestors having to go out into the wilderness to hunt for food etc etc. I am sure you have heard it all before. Well, let’s put something straight.

The attack on body confidence

Body confidenceI do not usually rant about things like this but recently I have had a number of clients who have been feeling insecure about their body and buckling under the pressure to try and ‘look good’.

In fact I experienced this myself recently. It was admittedly the first time this year I had braved a bikini, and I was in central London (Hyde Park, Serpentine Lido), so I think most of us would have been a tiny bit conscious! However, as a ‘fitness expert’ a lot of people would attribute that to being body confident 24 hours a day under ALL circumstances. Not true.

Music and exerciseAlthough growing up I liked music, I was never a hardcore dedicated ‘fan’ of any particular band and I just listened to anything which was force fed to me mainly by my Dad. As I hit my teens, Take That and Eternal were my favourites (!).
I played the Flute (most un-cool instrument past the age of 14 years) for a few years and then attempted to join an Orchestra. However, every time there was a ‘flute’ part I seemed to buckle and let’s just say, I did not last long!

Over the past few years, perhaps it is my age, I have fallen in love with Radio 6 Music and Shazam have become my new best friend. The songs I have discovered have heavily contributed to my ever growing Pilates playlist. The words and melodies seem to help create those ‘special’ moments in class. Either for sweaty hard bits or for chilled, relaxed endings, music has enhanced and brought that ’emotional’ connection to my classes. As a teacher I too have felt those special moments and feel like it strengthens the bond between the class participants and I.

Juicing and smoothie’s have exploded back onto the health scene and everywhere you look on the internet, whether it be on health blogs, nutrition plans, Instagram the word juicing or smoothie pops up.

It took me a while to jump on the band wagon due to the perceived time and equipment barriers. So only in December did I ask Father Christmas for a blender and a juicer in order to begin my journey. Out of the two, although I love the fresh juices, I think I personally prefer making smoothies. It tends to be quicker, you seem to produce more drink from what you put in and the smoothie itself is more substantial due to the flexibility of what you can put into it.
