This week we're talking about movement and how to feel motivated to move more, in whatever format that might be. We spoke to the team at Frame who shared with us three simple ways to incorporate more movement into your daily routine..."When we came up with the idea for FRAME over 10 years ago, the fitness scene was a very different place. Working out was mostly associated with guilt and played off people’s insecurities around body image. We wanted to make exercise and movement fun again, for our health and sanity, if no one else's. We set out to create a place that was for everyone, no matter if you were a top athlete or hadn’t exercised since PE class at school. We wanted to slot it into our lives in and around all the other things we were doing, and most importantly we wanted to make friends and build an environment full of positive energy, where Framers would leave feeling like they could take on the world.


We often get asked, ‘What exercise should I be doing?’ and in truth the best exercise for you is the one you turn up to – and by that, we mean choose something that you actually enjoy doing if you want keep it up. Choosing something that you think is good for you but you actually dread is basically setting yourself up for failure and you’ll soon find yourself making excuses to why you can’t make time for it. If you enjoy what you’re doing it will soon become a solid part of your weekly routine.


There are SO many different ways to move your body and ALL movement counts. Adding some small habits to your daily routine can be really beneficial – like getting off the tube a few stops earlier and walking the rest of the way, always taking the stairs instead of waiting for the lift and if you’re watching TV in the evening, do the plank challenge during the ad breaks. At FRAME we believe in mixing up your routine and listening to your body, working with it and not against it is key for success. This is why we have a class to suit every mood. You can choose from Yoga, Fitness, Dance, Pilates, Barre and MumHood for pre and postnatal classes.


We believe that you can move your body to change your mood. Dance boosts mood more than any other types of exercise. In a study at the University of London, researchers assigned patients with anxiety disorders time to spend in one of four therapeutic settings: a modern-dance class, an exercise class, a music class, or a maths class. Only the dance class significantly reduced anxiety. What accounts for the emotional high dancers experience? As a general rule, moving to music activates the brain's pleasure circuits. "On a physiological and psychological level, humans like order and form, and the rhythm of dancing to music provides that satisfactory patterning," researchers have said. Even more reason to shake your booty in a Beyoncé or Music Video class this January. Make sure that you’re moving your body in a way that makes you FEEL good first and foremost, all the other benefits will follow suit.

Sunset Sweats with Detox Kitchen

We have made it our mission this summer to get more people exercising outdoors, reaping the benefits of al fresco workouts in a relaxed and social environment. As such we have pulled together a 10-session series, ranging from yoga, pilates, HIIT and even trampolining. Kicking off the series on July 5th is Lottie Murphy, pilates instructor and holistic health coach. Also on the agenda is Adidas ambassador Zanna van Dijk, Hollie Grant (Founder of The Model Method) and ((BOUNCE)).

Post-race recovery

Running a marathon is undoubtedly one of the most challenging experiences in life - as soon as you cross that finish line, the feeling of intense accomplishment is like no other. With so much of the focus on prepping for the race, what you do post-race is just as important to give you body the rest it needs.
