Tamara's Scrapbook: A week in Montauk

posted on Tuesday, 29th July 2014by Tamara | 0 Comments

Having visited Montauk a couple of years ago, I was so excited to be heading back to host a press event with some editors from NYC. With an itinerary full of outdoor activities, I was looking forward to doing some of my favourite beachside activities such as paddleboarding, yoga, cycling and running. My family joined me in the US so it was lovely to spend time with them before joining the editors.

Meet the founder of AquaCycling, NYC...

posted on Friday, 25th July 2014by Sweaty Betty | 0 Comments

AquaCycling is the latest fitness trend to take the New York workout scene by storm. Attended by athletes and celebrities alike, the premise of the workout is a spin class that takes place in a pool, with the water adding extra resistance to enhance the body-sculpting benefits.

Brought to the US by French entrepreneur and fitness-lover Esther Gauthier, it was a chance encounter with the class during a trip to Paris that first introduced her to this innovative workout, and inspired her to bring it to Manhattan. Sweaty Betty sat down with Esther to find out all on her background, the class itself, her favourite post-workout foods and her weekly fitness regime.

Last year, Sweaty Betty was named Britain's Most Active Company. In 2014, the team has upped the fitness ante even further, so it was with great excitement that we collected the prize for Britain's Healthiest Employees (an award presented in association with PruHealth, Mercer and The Sunday Telegraph). 

Practising what we preach is at the core of all we do at Sweaty Betty. Walking the walk (or running to be more specific) is key for the team; finding inspiration and motivation in each other, from new 10K PBs and conquering a headstand in yoga, to crossing the finish line of your first triathlon

Glöanna: A Sweaty Success!

posted on Monday, 21st July 2014by Sweaty Betty | 0 Comments

They came, they ran, they did yoga in the park - and that's before the prosecco and sushi brunch...

If you weren't in Battersea Park last Saturday, you may not have heard that the world's first 5K yoga run, Glöanna, had landed in London. 500 women descended on the start line for their shot of prosecco, before heading off to run the scenic 5K route. The course was littered with quirky motivational signs saying everything from 'Breathe, Laugh, Repeat' to 'You're Alive - Woo!', with a live DJ soundtrack to keep the spirits high. Post-run, the Glöanna (and Sweaty Betty) ladies hit the mat for an al fresco yoga class, stretching out their muscles and relaxing into savasana.
