I took a trip to London sans Josh for some girl/mama time last weekend and every moment of it was just great. We primarily went over for a doughnut course in the world renowned Bread Ahead but I also partook in a F45 class Saturday morning. Two extremities I know but both well worth your attention!
Bread Ahead’s bakery opened its doors in September 2013 supplying fresh produce daily to Borough Market customers and a range of local restaurants and delis.
The Bakery School opened in February 2014 and is designed to show the public just how easy baking good bread can be.
The class was 3 hours long and kept at a steady, informative pace. Along the way we picked up great tips and came away with 6 fantastic doughnuts, extra dough and honeycomb with very full bellies too!
The next morning I was up and out to F45 London Bridge, where a friend of mine has set up from Dublin.
What is F45 Training?
F45 Training is the new training technique leaving competition and clients gasping for air. F45 is the most innovative, challenging and systemised team training workout in the world. Come and train like the stars at F45 Training.
I am not going to lie, I was a little nervous going in but came away feeling fantastic. It was tough going-54 stations in total-pushing your self against everyone as you are monitored by a your heat rate and performance. I loved the concept, easy to follow with instruction at the beginning and screens showing you what to do throughout. There are different classes but even if you continued with the same one, you could push yourself each time and perfect each station too. What I liked most about it was unlike other ‘bootcamp’ style classes I found it upbeat and encouraging.
It’s great for time poor people too, delivering results so I can only hope it crosses to Irish shores soon.
A few other hot spots that if you are heading to London on a jaunt sans child-that is one thing I really noticed, it ain’t child friendly but these are some spots to relish when in the adult non parenthood zone:
