The very sweaty dream team! These guys are amazing! My amazing Faye, her mum Carole and her boyfriend Ross (also known as The Motivational Dude, check out his Facebook page here, he’s always up to amazing things)

Hi lovelies! I had such an incredible time at the Fly Tri event yesterday with Fly Functional Fitness and lululemon Glasgow. It was an evening that left me feeling super hyped and so happy about life. It reminded me once again how blessed I feel to be part of the fitness community in Glasgow. I absolutely love all the incredible people you get to meet and I love there’s more and more stuff happening around the city.

On my way to the event I wasn’t even sure I was going to be able to take part. I had the worst stomach pain I’ve had in ages. I don’t even know why. It was so bad I wrote and warned Faye that I might not be able to do the workout. I walked down to Fly Fitness anyway and hoped the walk would help my stomach and it did! Luckily by the time I arrived the pain was almost entirely gone. I would’ve been gutted if I couldn’t take part. I can’t say no to a workout.

The evening consisted of a 21 minute workout you had to complete as a team. Three stations, seven minutes at each station. We started off with flipping the massive tyre, then it was prowler time and we finished off on the assault bike. It was seriously sweaty and at the end I felt dizzy from pushing myself but wow I was so happy with our team’s effort. We didn’t stop for a second to rest.

My lululemon girls had brought down loads of beautiful clothes and I of course fell in love with loads of stuff. After working there I really don’t need more gym stuff but oh my, I would love some new gear. These days I find myself not being able to justify getting new normal clothes (which I actually need) but I can still somehow manage to convince myself that buying a new piece for my gym wardrobe is a great idea. ! suppose I live in the stuff but still!

The evening ended with the two amazing guys behind Fly Functional Fitness, David and Ross, being asked to become ambassadors for lululemon Glasgow. It was such a beautiful moment, it couldn’t have happened to greater people. These guys genuinely care about making a difference and have such big hearts. I knew from the moment I first started planning Sunday workouts with them during my time lululemon that these guys were something special and it was just a matter of time before they became ambassadors. I can’t wait to see what they get up to with lululemon in the future. I already know it’ll be absolutely incredible.

I love when you get home after having an amazing time and you’re just buzzing from happiness. That’s how I felt. I haven’t felt that genuinely happy in a while, being excited about life and feeling to so genuinely blessed to be surrounded by some of the most inspiring people ever. People who dedicate their lives to helping other live better and healthier lives.

What an evening, that’s all I can say xx
