Reasons I love to Exercise

Here's a very sweaty, post workout video sharing the reasons I love exercising. I also wanted to talk about sweat, and how there can be a culture of embarrassment and shame around it. I have always been someone who sweats a lot and comes out red faced after a hard workout. I can sense people judging me because we seem to link sweat with fitness levels, but it's not true. I find the harder I train, the more my body sweats. Be proud of who you are and embrace it! What are your thoughts/experience with this?

What Cycling London to Paris Did For Me

One day I will not be able to do this. Today is not that day πŸ‘Šβœ¨
β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’
On my latest blog (link below) I've shared one woman's inspiring, courageous and heart warming story of how she overcame her limiting beliefs, fears and sadness, by completing the epic challenge of cycling London to Paris in 24 hours on my annual London to Paris Sportive
β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’
It's a very special event and we have places available for 2018 if you're up for the adventure! πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸš΄β€β™€οΈπŸ‡«πŸ‡·www.londontoparissportive.com http://www.challengesophie.com/blog/category/this-is-what-you-did-for-me-cycling-london-to-paris-24-hours

Welcome to British Summer! The sun has well and truly gone, but who says we can't bring our own sunshine to brighten these grey days? Another cracking sunrise swim in London's Serpentine this morning πŸŠβ€β™€οΈπŸ‡¬πŸ‡§β˜€οΈ

Spent today cycling, filming and editing a project for GoPro Can't wait to share next week, plus a few other projects I've been working on! I'm coming to the end of an incredibly busy few months and have sometime off booked in. I'm thinking it's time to chill a bit and have fun in the ocean. Where should I go? 🌎#GoProFamily #GirlsWhoRide #LondonCycling

Tour De France with the GoPro Family

Four days at the Tour De France with GoPro condensed into 58 seconds with their brand new editing app Quik Stories πŸŽ₯
β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’
For me this app is a game changer because it captures the content directly from Hero5 and creates an edit in minutes with filters, music and transitions, whilst also selecting the best parts of each clip. Basically it does the work for you! I always go through each clip after and fiddle around until I'm happy... but pretty cool that we can edit from our phone and camera with minimal effort and time. Give it a go! #GoProFamily #CaptureDifferent #QuikStories #ILoveBeingOnTheWater 🚀

I live in London, so when I travel I usually choose the wild and natural parts of the world, rather than cities. But this weekend in Paris was la crΓ¨me de la crΓ¨meπŸ‘ŒMy other favourite cities are Rio de Janeiro, Barcelona, Budapest, Amsterdam, Marrakech, New York and Guadalajara. What is your favourite city? Where should I explore next? πŸ—Ί GoPro #Paris #GoPro #OneLifeLiveIt

About yesterday.... ✨For over 15 years I have dreamed of building my own youth empowerment initiative. It is happening!!!! I kick started it with a talk to 170 eleven year olds at a school in East London. Sharing my story, inspiration, passion for life and adventure, and set them a #ConfidenceChallenge for this summer. Their questions were amazing in the Q&A, and we were all buzzing after! I signed 10 autographs πŸ™ˆ This is the start of something very, very exciting and a new chapter! I can't wait to share more about this over the coming weeks when I'll be announcing who I'm partnering with to make this happen and my plans πŸ™Œ #OneLifeLiveIt #EmpowerTheNextGeneration #Confidence

If I feel down, there's one thing guaranteed to make me feel strong enough to face the storm. Exercise! Whether it's a long walk along the river, a sweaty session at the gym, or hiking a beautiful mountain, these are the things I turn to when I need to boost my strength. I'm talking about emotional courage, not physical strength. For me, the two go hand in hand. It's what I've always loved about being active and going on adventures; they give me a chance to learn how to be the courageous and resilient person I believe I can be. Thank you Dan Roberts Group for making me smile today with an awesome power session. I absolutely love training with you! πŸ’ͺβœ¨πŸ˜€ #LoveYourBody #Courage #OneLifeLiveIt #TeamDanRoberts

Filmed with my DJI MavicPro drone on a sunrise mission with Mickey Fitz in the French Alps this April. He had this wild idea to climb a mountain at sunrise and interview me up there. It never takes much convincing me! 😜 It was absolutely freezing and our fingers went completely numb, but the sunrise on the top of Mont Blanc was unbelievable. We witnessed the colours and light change from the dark of night, to first rays of dawn with pink, orange and purple, and then the explosion of morning light in this clip.

I used to hate running and think I was terrible at it. I was the sweaty, out of breath, back of the pack, runner struggling to run 5km. Yet I knew this was a limiting belief that I wanted to overcome. One day I ran 100km from London to the Brighton on the UK coast. It took 17 hours and I felt horrendous for days after. But my mindset changed and I fell in love with the freedom, power and adventure of trail running (keep reading to the end!)

Two years later, its sunrise and I'm running along the edge of the mountains in Chamonix in the French Alps. I'm a global adidas Ambassador and we're shooting for their 'Live Without Limits' campaign. We are all blown away by the beauty of the alpine sunrise

GoPro Family Summit - Winning GoPro Awards

The fear of not being good enough, having enough time or the right skills and resources, is often what stops us from trying new things, learning and growing. I always wanted to make films but didn't know how to break down the barriers in my way, until I started using GoPro two years ago
β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’
Whilst in Colorado for the GoPro Family summit, we were tasked with a mission to capture and edit our adventures using Quik app. My film won the GoPro awards and I can't tell you how much this means to me! To be part of the Family who are essentially the best content creators in the world is one thing, but to have my work recognised and awarded was a very special moment
