SUMMER BODY, NOW ?!?

I recently visited the beautiful city of Venice on an active blog trip (which I’m super excited to share in an upcoming post). On my journey there, I was thumbing through a fitness magazine which made me think about how we’re compelled to pursue unattainable deadlines. Every year, the pattern is repeated; new years resolutions, Valentine’s sexy, summer beach body etc. They also, unsurprisingly, fall on the same day and demand the same unrealistic, short-termist targets. Almost all the major fitness publications and magazines in general seem to publish their ‘beach body’ articles in May; that leaves you about 4 weeks to witness your ‘goddess transformation’, depending on which publication you pick. This typically involves radically changing your entire fitness regime, nutrition requirements and social life. But with 4 weeks until holiday, do you want to be a monk, shun dinner with friends, go teetotal, spend every spare moment on the treadmill, eat lettuce religiously and remove all fun from life? That’s no way to live, and I think there is another way! Read on

One of the parts I’ve most enjoyed sharing on FitnessOnToast are the active escapes. Often though, to see the places in my posts requires a cheeky flight; but for my British readers today, good news! Just 30 minutes south-west of London, lies the gorgeous country estate of Coworth Park – the scene of an exquisite healthy weekend escape. I’ve already written about ‘The Benefits of Horse Riding‘ in my previous post, so you’ve seen a glimpse of the healthy activities on offer here, but there’s so much more to do! This post collects up some of my favourite moments from the escape, and gives a little peak into the Coworth world! (MORE…)

THE BENEFITS OF HORSE RIDING !!!

On a recent blog trip to Coworth Park, I took advantage of the exceptional Equestrian centre by riding for a couple of hours one morning through the glorious Ascot woodlands. It’s something I used to do every day growing up in the Swedish countryside; the way it made me feel, both physically (my poor adductors) and mentally (the endorphin release) reminded me strongly of the reasons I used to do it so much – there are so many health benefits of horse riding; this post was an inevitable formality… ☺️ (MORE)

QUITE INTER STELLA !!!

Fitness On Toast Faya Blog Girl Zalando Coworth Park Stella McCartney Adidas Designer Fashion OOTD lookGAPWhilst the Henley Royal Regatta isn’t until the 1st of July, and on the off chance you’re not Sir Steve Redgrave, anyone can try this superb form of exercise at the local gym! The humble rowing machine mimics the real thing, and provides some exceptional hidden health benefits which will see you using almost every major muscle group in your body. I think it’s one of the best low impact, high intensity ways to push through the anaerobic threshold, and chomp through calories! We shot this outfit in the fabulous gym of Coworth Park during a recent blog trip, and in collaboration with my friends at Zalando. I styled this look because I really wanted to showcase that sublime British talent, Stella McCartney, who’s done so much to push the boundaries of fitness fashion into something really special!
