Thursday morning
Sweaty Betty and Adventure boot camp teamed up to do an outdoor workout session at the Rugby club in Whiteley village. Nick put us through our paces with a mixture of boxing, chariot racing, cardio and resistance training. Warm down was a mix of yoga stretching. Thanks Nick for a great session we are feeling it in the legs and arms today!
Thursday lunch
Sweaty Betty met up with Alex Petsch for lunch and some Yogi inspiration. Alex has an impressive background and is now a Yoga teacher working with Nahid DeBelgeonne. Alex's passion for Sweaty Betty kit, yoga anatomy and rehabilitation through yoga was evident (she arrived head to toe in SB jumpsuit, escape jacket and fitflops).  After lunch we got a fast masterclass on safety in yoga, performing the half warrior correctly and focusing on what you can do safely in a yoga class rather than attempting a pose that's too advanced and risking injury. All in all a healthy happy and yogic lunch thanks Alex we look forward to seeing you soon.
Thursday night
Sarah Martin founder of "Ladies at 11" women’s only networking group is running 3 marathons in 2weeks to raise money for the Queen Elizabeth Foundation. Sweaty Betty Road show team went to meet Sarah and her team at the Charity Health and Fitness networking event.
Alex Edge from Inside Performance coaching gave an inspirational presentation of her journey in the 2000 BT Global Challenge, known as "the world’s toughest yacht race". As the skipper of the yacht Quadstone, Alex developed a group of amateurs into a high-performing team and led them to victory against the odds. Alex quoted Sir Peter Blake "obstacles are what you see when you take your mind off the goal”, and we left feeling healthy, happy and totally inspired. Thanks Sarah, Steph, Alex and team for such a great evening.
