Cause We Got that Fire: Ellie Goulding x Nike Training Club

I totally lucked out and got access to the Ellie Goulding x Nike Training Club Exclusive Global Launch last March 3, 2015 at the iconic and gorgeous Tobacco Docks in East London.

Just in case you’re like my boyfriend who has stopped listening to any new music since the 90’s, Ellie Goulding  is an international singer-songwriter known for some of the biggest chart topping songs of recent years. My personal favorites include Burn, Lights, Anything Could Happen, and her most recent hit, Love Me Like You Do. 

 

Apparently, she is quite a fitness aficionado, and is known for passionately advocating healthy choices and active lifestyles. She has participated in several marathons and shares fitness tips with her fans on instagram, all while conquering the music scene with one hit after another. This was what brought on the collaboration to release Ellie Goulding Tighten and Tone NTC Workout, an HIIT workout now available on the NTC app. 

 

The event started with an acoustic performance of some of Ellie’s biggest hits. I thought that was it from her for the rest of the evening, but to my surprise, she came out in her fitness gear and led the workout herself with her personal trainer and NTC trainer, Faisal Chaudry. Let me tell you, that girl was killing it! She was hitting it hard throughout the entire thing, from burpees to side planks to squats to scissor jumps. 

 

I can’t say that I’m a fitness pro, but over the past year I’ve been trying to eat healthy and have active habits. I have become a growing fitness enthusiast. I’m gonna tell you now – that workout requires dedication. I am pretty proud that I didn’t just die in the middle of the Nike event halfway through the 3rd set of burpees.

Ready to rumble!

 

On top of that and the fact that I just worked out with a celebrity (#nobiggie), the best part of the event was being among a group of women with such a wonderful vibe and energy about them. I’ve met some really fun, cool, and amazing women who have been putting so much commitment to their fitness journey, and that just the kind of push I needed to keep going with mine. 

 

Thank you to London Bloggers bosslady, Elle Linton of KeepitSimpelle.com, for my access to the Nike Training Club event! You are the BEST!

The Great Western Eggplant: Aubergine Pizza Melts Recipe

I've never seen an eggplant this big. You say aubergine, I say eggplant. I also say talong, which is its Tagalog translation. A talong can also be a slang reference to male privates, but I swear to you,  this is not what this post is about. The Philippine talong is a slimmer, more humble  counterpart of…

Cauliflower Obsession Part 1: Cauliflower Popcorn

I will admit it, I am a chronic grazer. I'd like to say that  it's the cold January air that's making me do it, but the truth is that I'm just in an inexplicable permanent state of munchies. This is why I've started experimenting with healthier snack options, and Cauliflower Popcorn is one that I can say…
