I -very often- get asked what I do to stay in shape and as some of you might have noticed on instagram, I do love exercising. I have been doing sports ever since I was around 12 years old and spent 7 years of my life training track and field, almost to a professional level (in high jump that is).
Working out is such a big part of my life and I don’t picture myself not doing sports, I do enjoy exercise a whole lot.
Some of you have asked me what do I do to stay in shape, well, I try to exercise at least 4 times a week (Gym and Cardio). Unfortunately during busy periods when I travel a lot, going to the gym is not really a possibility, so in that case, I stick to whats available anytime, anywhere, which is running.
 
I normally try to hit the gym around 3 to 4 times a week and do weight training, but when it comes to running, the more the better!.
 
Its tough to get into it in the beginning, so I would recommend you to find a running buddy, that way you push each other to actually get your tushy out the door and do it. 
Once you get into it, you will be amazed at how quickly you will build condition and how much farther you will start running.
 
I try so stick to 5-7K per run, but thats just because I prefer to do “short” distances more times a week, but you can start with 2k and build it from there.
 
Happy Running!!!

  1. Good abitude! After I broke my knee (one year and a half ago) I left my sport, where I was professional, and I start having a 'relaxed life'. For the first period it was quite good, it was something new but now it's really bad, I take 6 kilos and I don't feel well with my body. I go to the gym 3 days a week but it doesn't work at all :(

  2. i wonder how you do it when you have to travel..what sports clothes you pack and how do you deal with sweaty clothes…i would be very handy if you answer, i've just started jogging as a training form for myself but i doubt when i travel to take my clothes with me :/

  3. Me encanta tu blog, de hecho fue el primer blog que encontré y empecé a seguir casi diario…Entro casi todos los días desde hace como 3 años.Desde que te empecé a leer quise abrir mi blog y apenas me animé, espero que te des una vuelta y me digas qué opinas, muchas gracias.http://www.floraamediavoz.blogspot.mx/

  4. Thank you for sharing! Cool pictures, something different than neatly polished fashion pictures ;) xhttps://soundcloud.com/theclassyissue/the-classy-issue-march-mixtape#play

  5. Wow – you're like my sports soul body!I actually have the same routine – I run a lot and try to work out at least 3-4 times a week. Also I mostly opt for short distance runs from 5-7 km (and sometimes 8-10) because I just don't have the time!If I had more time on my hands I could run for hours… once you started it really clears your head, I love that :)Keep up the work, sporty spice ;o)XX from Germany IN BED WITH FASHION

  6. Love that american college jacket! Totally regret not buying it when I saw it last year. :(P.S inspiring post to start working out more! :)http://newbornfanatic.wordpress.com/

  7. Love your work-out clothes. It is important to keep fit and be healthy and I always feel better working out when I look good doing it so chic work-out gear is essential. Holly xxhttp://caramellacouture.blogspot.co.uk/

  8. Ah! This has just reminded me how long it has been since I have gone for a run! Miss it so much. Definitely gets harder to get out and exercise once you have a baby (even with a jogger stroller) :-) xxxwww.couronnedefleurs.net

  9. Wow:Dthat outfit is just great for running:))Love those photos and your blog! It's perfect♥and maybe you would want to visit my blog while having some free time?:))

  10. Thanks for this post, inspiring though I'm sure I'm one of those who will start with the long distance walking and then move on to 2km at first. I've got the same urbanears, exact same colour, love them!

  11. Great post! Love the pictures and your tips! I actually have tried running but for me it doesn't work that well since I have leg injuries… At the moment I am doing INSANITY and eating better! :) xohttp://sarandasuzannaadriana.blogspot.com

  12. I used to hate running but about 3 years ago I decided to challenge myself and now I'm kind of in love. I either run or swim laps. Both give me the cardio and strengthen different muscles. Great post!xoxohttp://www.thewrittenrunway.com

  13. No wonder you look great :) Running is a perfect work out, but unfortunately it only works for me when it's worm… If not I am always getting ill after running in cold weather… Anyway, love your running pants :) Love,Aleksandraof Make It Doubleehttp://makeitdoublee.blogspot.com/

  14. Do you have any suggestions for toning legs? Or do you just do that from running? I love your blog, it's on my daily list of sites to check :)

  15. wow, you really work hard. No wonder you have the most beautiful legs in the world!! ;)Thanks encouraging! Now that its getting warmer in Europe, I think it will be easier for me to go running :Dkisses Giohttp://giostylebook.blogspot.com

  16. It's great that you love exercising so much ;)I've been a (semi-)professional dancer for a large part of my life but because of blessures I had to quit dancing almost entirely. I would love to start running now, just hoping my body will adjust .. One question: do you like the Nike Freeruns? Because I'd like to buy a pair ..NOMADISMBYINE.BLOGSPOT.COM

  17. Same here just can't imagine not working out! Had a lazy time this winter and totally felt like a couch potatoe but now with the spring finally hitting germany I just can't wait to get out for a run and get back on track!xx OlgaLa Petite Olga

  18. I love cardio too! Thought I think is hard to find a place where I can run without breath too much of CO2 ( I love in Athens!) Anyway… What running shoes you think are the best, since you have some experience on this!Thank you very much!xx Stamina

  20. This is a very valuable post!I think that especially during the sring time you shall make more workout posts for extra inspiration and motivation! ;)http://thewardrobeisnotenough.blogspot.com/

  21. Running absolutely kills me! But I'm determined to start soon – Winter always has me eating more and It's often hard to stay in shape.www.divine-time.blogspot.com.au

  24. I always enjoy a good run. And I have the same pair of free run to help during my work out session ;-) You look great!!

  25. I know just what you mean, I have just recently gotten into running and it is seriously addictive!Did 10 km for the first time the other day, amazing how quickly you add moe and more kilometers to your run once you get started!

  26. Great advice, Andy! Thanks for sharing. I trained for track and field as well, but only for a year (and for javelin and shot put) :) I miss it sometimes. I'm definitely not a runner, but I should probably start. Baby steps!x Megann / STYLE SURGERY

  27. Oh good gracious. I started running in November, when I was more than 100lbs overweight and I can tell you now – it's been a real struggle!I just completed my first 5k last month though and i'm on my way to doing a 10k now. Starting really is the hardest part, but once you get going with anything it's much easier. I love running now! I really fancy investing in some gorgeous running kit like yours though.Amberwww.amberrosethomas.com

  28. OMG!! You work very hard, Andy! You look gorgeous even you work out! I have to start my running! Could you share the song you work our? :)

  29. I was so happy to read your post !! Since January this year, I've actually decided to change my lifestyle completely by sticking to a daily routine. This involves not only a daily morning Yoga session + running 3-4 days a week for 30 min, but also a balanced diet. I am planning to start a lifestyle section on my blog with nutrition and sports information as I am truly devoted to having a healthy lifestyle. I hope you will pass by my blog when that happens. You are doing a great thing by promoting fashion alongside sports, because in the end, the more active we are, the happier and more creative we become, which eventually leads to more and more amazing posts on the blog haha, so I guess, I discovered your secret ! best wishesSara Constancehttp://www.saraconstance.com

  30. It's great that you keep yourself healthy this way. I wonder how you find the time to exercise this much as you're obviously travelling a lot… I like those running pants by the way :)http://atleastblog.blogspot.com/

  31. Thank for sharing this ! I am very fond of sports as well, practicing twice a week yoga Yengar and 3 times a week power gym training ! XX Luba SORTEO BOLSO :: MICHAEL KORS :: BAG GIVEAWAYhttp://www.well-living-blog.com
