Phone apps have seriously changed the world we live in. From connecting with friends, to ordering dinner, to shopping online, to taking better photos, to tracking flights, to wasting time… there’s an app for pretty much any situation you’re ever likely to encounter. But how do you know which apps are worth your time, and which ones you should steer clear of? Well, when it comes to health and fitness apps at least, I can help you out. I’ve downloaded and used a bunch of them in my time – both paid and free – and today I’m showcasing the six that are on highest rotation on my phone.
Now I don’t want to cause too much alarm, but there are only 10 DAYS left until Christmas. 10 DAYS! So if your Christmas shopping has been less ‘shopping’ and more, ahem, ‘partying’ then it’s probably time to get your game face on. And by that I mean ‘pay very close attention to the following Gift Guide that I’ve put together for you’, complete with links to purchase. It’s for the fit and healthy ladies in your life and you are welcome.
So Santa’s packed his sleigh and is gearing up to leave the North Pole while your Christmas list seems to be getting longer by the second. Luckily, the Lazy Girl Fitness 2015 Christmas Gift Guide (Under $50 edition) has you covered! Perfect for the ladies in your life that love to stay fit and healthy (and have a little fun while doing it!). Or might I suggest forwarding to your mum/sister/partner/best friend as a little hint? I won’t tell.
We all know that what we put IN our body has a huge impact on the health of our skin, but how often do we stop to think about the things we are putting ON our body? If you’re anything like me, not often enough. I don’t wear a lot of makeup, mainly because it’s just not practical with the amount of exercise I do. But I thought the products I was using were good quality – I was certainly paying enough for them.
I love training outdoors for a thousand reasons, but there’s no denying a couple of minor annoyances. One is the weather (if anyone has Mother Nature’s contact details please let me know) and the other is the havoc it can wreak on my skin if I’m not careful. I’m guessing that many of you have had similar issues, so I spoke to Lisa Hody, Manager of Thaspa (my absolute fave spa in the Sydney CBD) to get her top five tips for ensuring our skin stays healthy when we’re training outdoors. If you’re in the area you should book yourself in for a treatment – you’ll walk out feeling a million bucks, I guarantee it.
It’s that time of year again! The countdown to Santa is ON and if you’re anything like me you’re starting to panic. Giving presents is in my top five favourite things to do, but it’s also probably in my top five most stressful. And because I don’t want everyone to go through the same anxiety that I do (every.single.year) I’ve put together a gift guide for the active gal. You know, gals like you and I!
Leave this open on your desktop, email it to your friends, partner, parents, all of the above. Just trust me, the products inside all have my seal of approval.
I am excited to announce that the Lazy Girl Fitness ‘Get Set for Summer’ Six Week Challenge is locked and loaded, ready to kick off on Monday, 3 November. It’s everything you need (and nothing you don’t!) to slide into summer feeling your fittest, healthiest and happiest. And more than that, it’s going to be six weeks of kick-ass FUN.
So, I don’t want to alarm anyone, but I found another spin class I enjoy… like, really enjoy.
Last weekend a couple of my friends and I made the trek (and I call it a trek because I know I paid at least five tolls) to Bella Vista for a class at Pelotone – Sydney’s Premier Indoor Cycle Studio. And it was totally worth it.
If you’d asked me a year ago to compile a list of my most hidden, depths-of-my-soul dreams, I don’t think I would have even been game enough to write ‘magazine feature and photo shoot’. But somehow, somewhere, someone is shining down on me, because recently I had the incredible good fortune to be part of exactly that with the fabulous team from Cosmopolitan magazine.
I don’t want to jinx this run of great weather, but it really does feel like spring is in the air. And while most normal people will be looking forward to digging out their cute skirts and summer maxi dresses, it’s my running shorts and racer-back singlet tops that I can’t wait to get into.
