I love a good exercise program and if you’ve read my post on how I exercise & stay consistent, you’ll also know that this is why I think I’ve continued to stay active for quite a long time now. Aside from the huge benefits that exercising regularly has, I’ve also learnt what works well for me and my body by trying my hand at so many different things and I think experimenting like this is the single most important thing you can do for your own health & well-being.

Over the years, I’ve tried not only a number of different programs but a number of different exercise styles as well. In the last 5 years alone, I’ve tried each of these for at least 12 weeks to see how my body responds –


  • Boxing
  • Reformer Pilates
  • Hiking/ Trail Walking
  • Gym (Heavy Weights)
  • Walking
  • Road Cycling

Whilst, I definitely have my favourites from the bunch above, another huge positive is that, as I’m about to launch my 1-on-1 health coaching service, I am now very confident in being able to recommend and give my two cents on which type of exercise (program or not) I think will work best for a lot of women. I know now the pros and cons and that’s really powerful too.


And just as I was getting comfy settling into Body by Finch which I have really enjoyed doing the last 5 months, I’m about to shake things up again and start something completely different for me. A program that I have been eyeing off for a long time but one that my inner mean girl has always told me I wouldn’t be able to do – Fit For A Reason by Alexia Clark.

So if you’re feeling unmotivated and uninspired to exercise, perhaps it’s time to try something new?! The beauty of our world today is that we have access to so many different things, so many inspiring online tribes and communities and no real commitment to stay if one particular program or style no longer serves you.
