The story about fit friendship or beginning of Fit Vibe Hunters

If following my Instagram stories you might have noticed a new, fit friend of mine – Filipa, who is Portuguese and which I met at my gym trial my second day in London. ( Yes, I went to find a gym, right after arriving and free trial is always the best thing to do if you are new at some place and wish to squeeze in that workout.)

As everything I do also this simple thing turned into an adventure, because the regular things does not happen to me, there is ALWAYS some story involved. I made a new friend at my gym trial day – Filipa with who we become instant friends as we are very similar souls with same interests and same view to the life. Since them we have been working out and hanging out together – just hunting good vibes – our adventures on Fit Vibe Hunters Instagram.  For what makes this more amusing – her boyfriend is Latvian. How about that for a coincidence?  Read More

London through my eyes

Since I moved to London, this June, the life has been a roller coaster. Not only because I didn’t have a proper break before starting a new job and switching countries but also because I have been running ever since to catch up with the tempo of the city, new work and affront new challenges. (Like how to get a bank account and internet at home).

But once that is settled you are basically a local! I mean wifi that connects automatically when you come home, bank card was just matter of time and patience, a lot of patience and some good persuasion skills and explanation skills why my surname in Latvian passport has been spelled differently and all other documents has a different surname spelling. BUT! Adventures is that usually finds me and to be honest last five months has flown by. Read More

Exploring the green paradise in London – Kew Gardens

It’s been just over a month since I move to London and I have already found my new, favourite place in London – Kew Gardens. It’s a botanic garden in a middle of busy London ( and not any botanic  garden – an UNESCO Botanic garden). A magical place, I must say: quiet, spacious, unique, dreamy and so peaceful that even a peacock is enjoying a stroll there.

If you are searching for an alternative place to visit when next time in London – Kew Gardens is the right spot. In summer they even offer a wide range of outdoor activities including concerts and exhibitions, so make sure you are not missing out.

See for yourself my first impressions last weekend.

Jump! Jump for my love! as Pointer sisters sings! Or jump because it’s good for you! Simple and yet so efficient! 

Did you know that just 10 minutes of jumping rope can provide the same cardio benefits as 30 minutes of running or two sets of tennis? it also builds up the functional strength that supports your everyday tasks ( like carrying heavy bags).

I have already written about including Jumping rope in your training routine but this time how to make it right and how to build up stamina to jump more ( just like Rocky). Read More

Last week Adidas Runners Milan organized another great event – this time just for ladies presenting the new UltraBOOST X runners shoes designer for ladies! And what’s the best way to experience the shoe? Of course to go for a run! And so we did.

Turned out that was one of the lucky ones that had a chance to bring these babies for a run! And must say it was great! So comfy! was slightly looking sceptical to them but after trying on I really can say that you can feel the difference on the feet when running – fits perfectly hugging your ankle therefore giving a great support. At least my impression. 

But apart trying on a new shoe had a great Milan evening run and a little bit of working out with Adidas Runners girls.

Here is how it went.

We all have some problematic zones we would like to improve in our bodies more than others. One of them are armpits and overall upper body which looks exceptionally bad, if not toned, in a strapless dress or naked back dress or actually any other tight garment for that matter. Therefore it’s important to include exercises in your workout routine also dedicated to your problematic areas like armpits. Afterall summer is coming and as we all know – 

sumemr bodies are made in the winter

SUMMER BODIES ARE MADE IN THE WINTER

Of course we want to rock those strapless dresses and overall feel good about our arms so let’s tone them! Read More

Do not go more than 3 days without working out.

When on road – I always try to customize my trainings in order to adapt to stick to my training plan no matter how hard it gets, I just always try to find a time to squeeze in a workout session or two to stick to my fitness goal. While in Japan last week I still managed to squeeze in a leg day, HIIT and killer abs workout sessions. Always sticking to the golden rule when starting any workout program:

n

Indeed when you skip one-two training days it’s most probably you will skip some more and will sabotage all your hard work of previous weeks! (Trust me – I know! So frustrating!)so just stick to the gold rule no matter how hard it gets. Of course there are exceptions, like sickness or factors you cannot influence, but traveling, YES, even for work, shouldn’t be one of them. And in order not to feel bad about not working out at all – just squeeze in some short training programs – like a compact workout for abs and core session. 

Abs are relatively easy to train Read More

It’s a proven fact that people who live in a big cities has more stress, anxiety level is higher and they rest less than the ones living in smaller cities and countryside. 

Taking me for example, been way more stressed than I have ever been last 12 months than i believe in whole life. Of course with the age (now I can say that officially) comes also more responsibilities, more duties and expectations are higher. From outside world as well as my own. I want constantly improve, I push myself more and rest less. Not only for work but also in personal achievements and even fitness, and not oftenly putting the mental health and mind on peace. which cause for accumulated stress levels which outbursts into a sickness.

I believe that I am not the only one, therefore sharing this message with all of you: 

It’s OK to give you an extra rest day

I have already shared couple of times my fitness power bars recipe with you guys but here is a slightly modified and updated version of the old muesli/ granola bars recipe. They say – third is a charm, right?

Made it to treat the family, friends and colleagues as made it way too many. But as a finger-lickin good ones – they were gone in a heartbeat! so tested, proven and approved even by picky eaters! (That’s why excuse the lack of the pictures – couldn’t fight off all the eaters!)

The good side making homemade power bars is to have them by your reach whenever sugar cravings crash. Easy to pack them away for your office snack or enjoy it post workout to renew that energy reserves after a hard training, or simply have a healthy kick-start of the day, whenever you choose – it will make you satisfied!  Read More
