A couple of weeks ago I was invited down to Landantown to take part in a SBC exercise class with the lovely Swimwear 365. Just in case you don't already know, SBC (or the Skinny Bitch Collective) is an hour long class run by Russell Bateman who trains the likes of Millie Mackintosh and Suki Waterhouse. I seriously needed a kick up the butt in the exercise department, so thought this'd be a good one to get me going, plus if there was the promise of getting a bod like either of those two babettes then I couldn't really say no. I headed down before and checked into the Park Avenue Baker Street hotel which was LAVLY - check it out if you're looking for somewhere to stay in London - and did a cracking breakfast.

The class itself was hard as shit; from planks to crabwalks to upside down mountain climbers and back again. At one point I actually though, 'what if I never see my kids again?' before realising that I don't actually have kids and was delirious from exhaustion. You can see how you'd having a banging bod in no time if you were going at it a couple of times a week, plus Russell's not a man you'd want to disappoint so you really do push yourself. The one thing I would say is that it'd be handy to have some basic knowledge of different exercises before you go because it's so fast-paced and relentless (generally 20 seconds per exercise with a few seconds rest before you're onto the next one) that you can easily get lost or left behind if you're not sure what's going on. It was one of the best blogger events I've been to, as much as I love mini cupcakes and champagne, there's nothing like getting sweaty with a bunch of girls to bring you close together. Big thanks to Label PR, Swimwear365 and Russell to putting on such an amazing event!
