2016 has been the year I actually stuck to some of my new year goals. I've transitioned into blogging full-time, completed my bachelors degree at university, finally got my butt into the gym on a regular basis and actually got fit. Seeing a personal trainer has played a big part in this (I'm working on super long feature about my fitness journey which will cover this) but with this new found love for fitness I've come to love experimenting in different types of exercise too.

So, when Swimwear 365 got in touch last month to invite me along to a reform pilates class at Move Your Frame, I jumped at the chance to try it out. Reform pilates uses springs and pullies (those funny contraptions you can see above) to add another dimension to regular pilates work outs, aiding the harder exercises and adding challenge when they're mastered. Improving tone, flexibility and even lengthening, it's a great work out with loads of benefits.

Different to anything I've tried before and what I'd been doing in training sessions, I was pleasantly surprised by how the slow, controlled exercises really tested my balance and endurance and I really did sweat! It was such a good work out and I was full of endorphins afterwards and so ready for a good breakfast.

The Kings Cross studio has it's own 'Fuel for Frame' café, complete with a fuss-free menu packed with the perfect post-work out snacks. I went for a carrot and ginger juice, and between us we shared some delicious acai fruit bowls and stacks of delicious protein pancakes! Over the delicious brunch we had the chance to browse through Swimwear 365's summer look book which was full of so many – be sure to check out the whole collection here.  Thanks to Label PR, Swimwear 365 and Move Your Frame for a lovely experience and awesome work out – I will be back for sure.

I'm wearing: Topshop Ivy Park leggings, HM vest (similar)
