Skipping while travelling is great for your tummy

Sorry guys, I know it’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been so busy on the road, that it’s been hard to find the time to write. But I’m back!

The last few months have been hard, I’ve been all over Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, trying to enjoy the beautiful beaches where possible, but mostly filming my new show which will air in the Fall. We’re nearing the end of the project, a cant wait to see the finished product!

I’ve got to tell you about something I’ve been doing while I’ve been travelling which has been just fantastic. It’s Crossfit, and it’s amazing. Every time I’ve stopped in a decent size town, I’ve hunted for the local Crossfit box. These places are popping up everywhere across Asia so it was never too hard to find one.

The workout you get here is fantastic, which is super important when you cook and eat awesome for food for a living! It’s so easy to get fat in this job. They really push you, and my favorite thing is that I’ve rediscovered my love of skipping. As a kid, I would skip for hours with all the girls in the neighbourhood. And at Crossfit, skipping is an integral part of their workouts.

One of the tougher things with Crossfit skipping is mastering the double under. This is a tough trick which involves doing two loops of the rope for one jump. I’ve getting better but boy, am I getting some bruises on my shins from getting whipped by the rope! It’s worth it though, I feel better than ever, and it gives me so much energy to get through the day.

I highly recommend hunting down your local Crossfit box and join up. It’s great fun, you’ll meet loads of cool people and you get super fit, super fast. Talk soon lovelys!
