Very early on a Saturday morning, I packed up my bag and jumped on the train to London, ready to take part in the Always Infinity Challenge. For those that aren't aware, Always put on an event at The London Dance Academy, for us lucky ladies to have a go at some innovative new sports - Barre Core and Aerial Yoga.
I arrived at the studio and got changed into the complimentary Freya Active sportswear. We then helped ourselves to a healthy breakfast (Alpro yoghurt and granola) and watched a demonstration of the new Always Infinicel sanitary towels. After an inspiration talk from the guest speaker, it was time to get our hearts pumping!
If you are looking for hardcore, fun and fast-paced exercise, then Barre Core is definitely the one for you! The class combines yoga, pilates and ballet, to help tone and tighten every part of your body - be warned, you will ache the following day!
As a fan of regular yoga, I was really excited to try the Aerial yoga, and was not disappointed. This involved using fabric 'hammocks' that were attached to the ceiling, performing yoga moves using your own body weight against the hammock - which included hanging upside down and backflips!
When we weren't taking part in the classes, we were able to visit the Freya Active room, who were offering free bra fittings, as well as a chance to browse and purchase items from the Freya Active range. Did you know that most women are wearing the wrong sized bra?
I had a fantastic day out; I met some lovely ladies from all over the UK, and discovered some exciting (yes, really) exercise classes! I would encourage anybody who has the chance to do something like this, to go for it! We all left feeling energised and motivated, and with a cute goody bag filled with some healthy treats and a few extras.
Have you tried Barre Core or Aerial Yoga? What did you think? If not, is it something you'd like to try?
