the Talks: Past events

Can fitness create vibrant new communities? Yes, say us!

the Antidote to... exercising on your tod...

Is our current fascination with fitness really about finding a sense of belonging?

We recently gathered once again at the Hemsley+Hemsley Café in the awesome new Selfridges Body Studio for round 2 of #BodyTalk. Our aim was to discover how fitness moves you, physically, mentally and spiritually. The result was an unplugged, un-egotistical and juicy conversation with prima ballerina Lauren Cuthbertson, former England netball star and World Cup medallist Tamsin Greenway, ex-professional boxer Cathy Brown and CEO and trainer at Psycle, Rhian Stephenson.

While they represented group cycling, boxing, netball or ballet, all agreed that the power of the group cannot be underestimated. It can double our effort, motivation and performance – plus, it’s the most fun way to move your tush too! Yes, exercise really can be part of your social life (and you can double up with a glass of something cold and rewarding afterwards!)

Keep your eyes peeled for our post on how to get with the group, whether it’s back to netball, a ballet or boxing class or a run in the park as a pack…

If your movement mojo needs some motivation you can watch this juicy conversation here. Thousands have tuned in already so make sure you join the conversation too: Facebook.com/Selfridges #grouptherapy #thisistheantidote
