10 Top Tips To Support Better Sleep

You have probably heard about all the good things sleep can do for you, from making you look younger and feel more energised to help you lose weight - and so much more than that. Suffice to say sleep is good for you and we all need more of it. If it feels like your sleep quality has room for improvement see my top tips below: Tip 1Tr

This is my first post on this new forum. So just thought I would share a little bit about me with you all. 

Although I’ve been an active person most of my life, less than two years ago I took a liking to cycling. My husband has been a cyclist all his life. I had never showed an interest in riding until he bought me a bike.  Now I have 4 bikes and absolutely loving getting up at 4am to ride. It’s the only sport/exercise that I can say I enjoy 100%. Even on the tough rides πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

πŸ’₯ MY WEEKLY ROUND UP πŸ’₯

Nothing to report πŸ˜‚ I've been in bed ill with the flu.  Today is the first day I feel properly back to normal.  I CANNOT wait to get stuck straight back in. The only important things I achieved this week were....

1. FINALLY release my podcast with @Kelly McLay - I listened back to her story this week fully.  I rarely listen back to my episodes but I had time to on this occasion,. It was brilliant. Her story is beautiful and has the ability to inspire. People, their mindsets and their actions should always be a source for people to become inspired. Listen in here via the two links below:

Apple - apple.co/3aDo4nX

Spotify - spoti.fi/3qPNjZG


2. Read 'The Dynasty', by Jeff Benedict, a book about the New England Patriots American Football Dynasty. Lead by three incredible, and fascinating, men in Robert Kraft, Bill Belicheck and Tom Brady this book had had a profound effect on my personal ambitions, on leadership and what it takes to become the best at what you do. I will be recording a solo podcast on the topic of motivation, leadership and what I learned from this book next week.

I'm amped up to get stuck back into things next week.... I hope you are too.

Have a WONDERFUL weekend.

Haydn!

The best moments for me each morning are when the sun is first rising for the day it sets a feeling of accomplishment before the day even begins. Nature’s energy can reinvigorate your soul and allow you to connect with what really matters in this life, I get to capture these magic moments every day because I choose to win the battle in the morning not let that voice inside win the one that tells you to sleep in take a day off, that voice will hold you back in life!

Working from home has allowed me to rekindle my love for swimming, with quick dips before the working day begins. 

Not only does it set me up for the day feeling cooled off with a clear mind, no one can talk to me while I swim laps, I can’t check emails or slack messages, all I can do is follow the black lines on the bottom of the pool.

What an INCREDIBLE week! Being active during a cold and challenging British winter is a difficult task! 

More than ever being part of a community has shown it’s importance! At F45 Oxford Circus and Soho we have really recognised that. On Monday we launched our β€˜8 Week Challenge’ with the focus being around getting up and MOVING! 

By partnering up with Magic Mountain, an incredible accountability tool and community platform, and dividing the 150 β€˜Challengers’ into teams we have had one HELL of a week. In 5 days we have accumulatively burnt 378,000 calories. Incredible stats!

Our online sessions have had people all over the UK training with us and it has been amazing to be part of. In these tough times using fitness as a vehicle to stay mentally and physically healthy is so important.  

Have a wonderful weekend sqaudron!!

It’s Veganuary
