As promised, here is another of the sporty looks I worked on with Simán. My trainer knows me too well, and he is very much aware of my hate relationship with cardio, however it is inevitable that I should dedicate some time every day to it. This is why, he is always trying to find alternatives to the typical 20 minute treadmill runs. Kickboxing has proven to be amongst my favorite options, it is a great way to release energy and get my heartbeat up.
Two weeks into the year and I am sure we have all thought about getting healthier, getting leaner or getting active. While I lived abroad, exercising was an issue always gnawing at the back of my head, but hardly becoming a reality. It had a little to do with my lack of time, and a lot to do with my lack of money. I did join a gym in Toronto, but the truth was that despite my determination, I always felt I wasn’t doing it right. So when I came back home, one of my brightest decisions was to get personal training.
On my last travel post, I showed a few images of my trip to Peru. Now, I want to share more amazing places that I visited within the country.
First was Cusco: a beautiful colonial town that has preserved the antique feeling. I stayed at the most adorable accommodation very close to the main plaza, the Aranwa Hotel (totally recommend it!). Since Cusco is located at an altitude above 3,000 mtrs, drinking coca tea is highly recommended to prevent altitude sickness.
For the rest of this trip, I spent four days submerged in an Inca experience, visiting various ruin sites along the Inca Sacred Valley. My voyage into this culture ended with the breathtaking Machu Picchu (pronounced Mah-choo Peej-choo). Here are a few of the shots that I took!
Your time. Your space. Your style. Net-a-porter has a new section! A tab solely focused on activewear. “Sportswear as chic as everything else in your closet,” as it states beneath the web’s headline. And so it is, I might add.
The page is organized by sports, making it easier to find precisely what you’re looking for. Let me be honest with you, I’m not what you would call a sports’ person, but if there’s one thing I love, its dance. And guess what?! Net-a-sporter has even a section fully dedicated to dance and yoga, with beautiful leotards, wraps and accessories.
I’m going to let you judge by yourself, but I leave you with a selection of my current top picks.
