Sweaty Betty blog: Living The Dream
Empowering Women Through Fitness
The first leg of my wonderfully active and fun-filled travels around America's west coast - long live summer holidays!
Practising what we preach is central to the work ethic here at Sweaty Betty, so it was with great pleasure we accepted an award this month for ‘Most Active’ as part of Britain’s Healthiest Company, a collaborative effort between The Sunday Telegraph, Pruhealth and Mercer.
Cornwall is one of our favourite places to go on holiday. I used to worry about the weather and what we would do if it rained the whole time, but now that the kids are older we just go surfing. Having grown up in hot countries, I only discovered the necessity of wetsuits in my adult life, and they are brilliant. Cold rainy weather? Who cares. Jump in the sea in your wetsuit. Problem solved.
I may not be the best at surfing, but I love it. It's a tough upper body workout, especially in the Cornish waves, and catching a wave and standing up is exhilarating. The best part is that the whole family loves it too.
From New York City to San Francisco Bay, our professional Sweaty Betty yoginis are stretching it out in style. We caught up with ambassadors Stacey Brass and Kimberly Hu to find out what makes them tick…
Kimberly Hu, Budokon Yoga Instructor, San Francisco
A yoga practitioner since 1997, Kimberly Hu has taught many forms of yoga in New York, London and more recently San Francisco, California. Kimberly specialises in Vinyasa Flow as well as Budokon Yoga, a fusion of yoga and mixed martial arts, meaning she really pushes her Sweaty Betty gear to the limit each and every day.
