The Hiking Kit:


There’s no need to choose between style and comfort following the launch of Veja’s first-ever hiking shoes. Whether you’re going for a casual stroll or tackling trickier terrain, the watertight fabric is fully rainproof to keep your feet dry and comfortable, and the sole has been designed with crampons for good grip. There’s also plush cushioning to protect against impact.

The Online Platform:

Silver Linings Live

If low-impact workouts are your thing – think yoga, Pilates and barre – Silver Linings Live is the platform to keep on your radar. Instructors are some of the best around, and the weekly live schedule has plenty to keep you busy – Saturday morning’s cardio barre and Friday’s yoga flow have our name on them. If you can’t make a class, you can catch up for up to 48 hours afterwards, while an extensive on-demand library will keep you challenged. There are classes for all levels – including beginners and prenatal – as well as meditation and sound bath sessions for a dose of calm.

The Retreat:

Heartcore St Tropez

SL favourite Heartcore will host its second ever retreat in May in St Tropez. Days start with signature Heartcore classes followed by a healthy al fresco breakfast with fresh fruit and pastries. The rest of the morning is yours to enjoy – go for a run on the nearby beach or explore coastal walks a stone’s throw from the villa before heading back for lunch. Afternoons will be taken up with guided hikes, massages, tennis, spa treatments and PT sessions. In the evenings, wander into the old town for group dinners at local hotspots. Everything is included – all you’ll need to cover is your flight and transfers.

The Tech:


British indoor bike brand Apex Rides has recently added a limited-edition baby blue colour to its line-up of black, navy and white bikes. If you’re in the market for an at-home bike, Apex provides a more affordable option without compromising on quality. Plus, up to six different profiles can be added to one account, meaning housemates and family members can split the cost. Membership will give you access to unlimited live and on-demand classes, and the real-time leaderboard that measures RPM and resistance is the ultimate way to keep your goals on track.

The Destination:


If you’re yet to try a pair of the ubiquitous On trainers – or are already a fan looking to invest in a fresh set – the brand’s new flagship store on Regent Street is worth a visit. Pop in for a gait analysis to get matched with the best shoes for your running style or book in for workshops and events. If you work nearby, join the free weekly run, which leaves the store at 6pm every Wednesday. You can even try a pair of On shoes to see how they feel underfoot before buying. In-store yoga classes will be launching this summer, too.

The New Class:


When it comes to building lean muscle and improving fitness levels, it doesn’t get better than KXU’s newest class, Threshold. Focusing on threshold training – i.e. working within 80-90% of your maximum heart rate for extended periods of time – the 45-minute class uses ski-ergs, assault bikes, dumbbells and bodyweight exercises to build endurance. Challenging but satisfying and seriously effective, slot this class into your week to torch calories and sculpt a stronger physique. The pay-as-you-go concept means you don’t need to commit to a membership, either. Your first two classes are £35.

The Accessory:

Ensuring you’re never left without battery, the earbuds themselves hold five hours of harge, while the portable case carries four additional charges.
