Day 18: Behind The Scenes of The Hiitgirl Video - Meet The Models

posted on Thursday, 18th September 2014 | find under Tamara, Fitness, Nutrition
One very sweaty day in July, the founder of Hiitgirl Susan Dyson came together with three extremely fit women to film the Get Fit 4 Free video for Autumn 2014. It took 3 film crew members, 1 studio manager, 1 Sweaty Betty stylist, 1 behind-the-scenes photographer, 1 blog writer and 1 Sweaty Betty content & events manager (as well as the 4 being filmed!) to capture this workout on video. 

In one very short break in between takes, Sweaty Betty managed to sit down with each of the ladies on-screen to find out all on their go-to exercises, ultimate cheat foods and favourite places in London.

With both Anya and Hollie being fitness instructors themselves, we were keen to hear how it felt to do someone else’s routine…

Hollie – “It was fun! Nice to have someone else telling me what to do, and trying out a different routine.”
Anya – “I really enjoyed it! I found it challenging, and it was nice to get a different perspective on training.”
