This is not a post about Kayla Itsines, vegetarianism or cross fit.

Nor is this a rant about psuedo-fitness trends or a guide on how to squat.

Yeah my tights are OTT and yes everything matches. Why? Simple. Design is a fvcking lifestyle (kidding but not really) and sitting-up, pressing-up and lifting-up seems that much easier when your legs look like an acid trip gone right. Amirite?

I mean grey basics aren’t gonna inspire a front handspring stepout, roundoff back handspring stepout, roundoff back handspring, full twisting layout, are they now?

So before I start hashtagging #bbg, #sunsoutgunsout, #fortheboyz and suchlike let’s talk about confidence inspiring essentials and how to keep motivated amidst hyperbolic fitness insta accounts and 5pm Claremont (and the world over) Virgin Active sessions.

My tricks? Turn off your phone’s wifi and mobile data, it’ll help you focus and also save you from being that girl on the treadmill checking her tinder matches. An amazing playlist, a badass pair of tights, (an ashtma pump) and a gym towel are NB too. Ain’t nobody got time for bielieber beats in the gym, awkward sweat-stained-kinda-see-through tights or paper towels. When you’re surrounded by boets and baes, the last thing you need is gym floorman handing you tissues while you bathe in your own sweat on the treadmill. Trust, it’s the pits. da dum tsssh.

Gimme a shout if you’ve got any nifty gym tricks or also just love wearing boldAF looks to the gym too?
