    Love Lagree, a New Fitness Gym in Leeds

    Leeds is starting to become a bit of a fitness mecca with new gyms and fitness classes being introduced. As a fitness enthusiast I don’t mind one bit. The latest and hottest trend coming from across the pond, also in London, is Lagree. Lagree is a high intensity, low impact training method which many celebrities say has transformed their bodies. So if you’re not into classes filled with jumping exercises and prefer working with your own body over heavy weights, this is the perfect training method for you. I love trying new things so when owners and instructors Lorraine Jenkins and Craig Noble invited me down to their Love Lagree* studio…

Since, I’ve seen a progress in that I feel fitter and healthier and I have also noticed a slow weight loss.

    What’s in my Gym Bag

    I feel like I live in my gym bag. Most days I go to the gym, before work or during the lunch hour. I also cycle to work which means I can’t bring the biggest gym bag to fit it all. My Kånken bag is a life saviour: it’s the perfect size to fit everything I need but I have to think carefully how I pack it all.

    Motivational Reasons for Exercising in the Morning

    We all have our preferences when it comes to what type of exercise we enjoy and feel is beneficial for us. The same goes for the time of the day when we do it.
