(1) Flexi Veganism
Follow Beyonce and other celebs into the emerging new tribe of part-time meat eaters. A rather grand announcement (only in America!) Beyonce’s lifestyle plan, created by her nutritionist Marco Borges, focuses on a carb-heavy, plant-based vegan diet. Borges says: ‘22 Days is about allowing people to define plant-based living the way that works best for them’. The diet completely rules out dairy, gluten and eggs, but Borges suggests that after the first 22 days people are free to change it in a way which works for them. This is why Beyoncé and others following his plan can occasionally eat meat. ‘It’s not about perfection, it’s about progression,’ says Borges. Watch the video here.
(2) Disneyland Paris Half Marathon
If you haven’t heard about this already, you may find yourself giving a little whoop of excitement at this news. Imagine, running up the Champs Elysee in your Mickey Mouse outfit with Minnie running alongside you as you take on this enchanting circuit. Florida and LA already offer this, so it’s great that Europe has finally got one to call its own. It’s in October, keep up to date here.
(3) Secret Pop-Up Fitness Classes
If you can’t get enough of London’s recent excitement for everything “secret”, then how about working it into your exercise regime? Secret Urban Escape organises pop-up fitness classes alongside live music in unique, secret spots. Themes range from Pilates, Prosecco & Mince Pies and Bootcamp & BBQ which makes working out an altogether more fun experience. Tickets cost £25 to £45 including class, food, drink and a live gig or DJ. For more see here.
(4) Wild Swimming
Country walks surely take on a new lease of life if there’s a swim involved. Wild swimming has long been a passion of some of the LSL team, so with this new publication we’re hoping you’ll all be inspired too and follow suit. It comes highly recommended; just don’t go diving in anywhere! These routes included a new book ‘Wild Swimming Walks – South East’ offer fantastic opportunities for dipping along the region’s rivers and coastlines. We can’t wait to try them all out!
(5) The rise of live stream technology
Right on the heels of wearables is live streaming technology. The streaming class is a welcome alternative to your traditional options: working out alone, working out with a personal trainer or taking a group fitness class. Yoga, ballet and Barrecorre have been at it for a while but will bigger players step in to make the streaming space more interesting and mainstream for other workouts?
The Life Adventure will be announcing its live steam health & fitness classes throughout 2015.
