The Warm-Weather Workout: The Wave

Surfing is an incredible workout for both body and mind – not only does it build cardiovascular fitness, it helps tone and strengthen as well as calm the mind. A first-of-its-kind destination, The Wave is an inland surfing spot where surfers of all levels can catch consistent waves throughout the year. Providing over 1,000 waves an hour (all of which are powered by 100% sustainable sources), there are endless opportunities to hone your skills. Prices include a wetsuit, gloves, boots and board hire, so there’s no need to worry about investing in additional kit. If you don’t live near Bristol, the good news is that The Wave London is currently in the works.

The Low-Impact Option: Ballet Fusion

An adult ballet training programme developed by ballerina Rhea Sheedy, Ballet Fusion is perfect for barre enthusiasts. Combining traditional ballet techniques with flexibility and strength, Ballet Fusion’s classes go one step further than your average barre session for a more authentic experience. Tune into an online workout or find the team at various locations across the capital, including Kings Cross and Dalston. The brand also has its own collection of buttery-soft leggings, bras, leotards and ballet shoes, so you can look the part too.

The Trainers: Lululemon

With over 20 years of apparel innovation under its belt, Lululemon was always going to get its first pair of running shoes right. Based on scans of more than a million feet, and refined through countless rounds of wear-testing, its hot-off-the-press trainers are a must-try. Specifically designed for women (did you know most trainers out there are designed for a man’s foot then shrunken down?) expect comfy cushioning, unparalleled support and the trademark Lululemon style.
