welcome

Summer holidays are over, the days are drawing in. It can mean only one thing – it’s back-to-the-gym time! Whether you’re home from holiday feeling less fit than before you left, or your motivation has melted after lazy days in the sun, now’s the time to kickstart your fitness for the new season. You’ll find all the inspiration and workout tips you need in this month’s 16-page ‘Back to the Gym’ special (page 45). Hopefully, like us, you love your gym time.

about you

TAKING THE PLUNGE What a motivational article ‘In at the deep end’ (Issue 239) was. My partner and I are both divers and keen swimmers. I must admit we had never heard of an underwater workout before. The nearest I’ve got to this is aqua aerobics. But while it seems like a relatively new trend, it appears underwater strength training has been a thing for some time now. I started researching and was pleased to find there are classes a few miles away. The instructor was pleased to hear from me and enthused about us joining his club of underwater athletes. It sounds a lot of fun, and a new water adventure for us both! Thank you for the inspiration. Jessica Ward, London YOGA INSPIRATION I was intrigued by your feature ‘Get a yoga body’ (issue…

‘my life in a day’ melanie whelan

‘I work long hours and travel a lot so, when I’m home, I get up very early to be a part of my two children’s morning routine. First off, I check my emails, the news headlines and my schedule for the day, then I’ll have a seltzer water with lemon, a cold brew coffee and a banana while breakfasting with the kids. After the school run, I head to one of the 22 studios we have in New York five days a week, not just to train, but also to talk with the teams and riders – I learn so much more spending 30 minutes in a studio lobby than sitting at a desk. After that, the rest of my day is spent at the office in meetings, covering everything from…
