    5th December 2017

    By Shivraj Bassi

    Robyn is the red-headed northern lass with the big hair and an even bigger personality that you'll have seen if you've dropped by our partner studio 1Rebel for a workout. There's even a smoothie named after that you can grab after your workout from the 1Rebel bar. We sat down Robyn to find out what makes her tick... we have a feeling it might be cheesecake!

    "I was 19 and didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. I've always loved people, music and moving, and my mum randomly suggested I would be a good Zumba instructor! Despite not having any knowledge of the industry I got a job in sales for a mainstream gym and went to every class and trained with every PT to learn as much as I could. The experience totally changed me. I loved the sense of community in a group fitness class, the support network, the challenge and the purpose it gave me. Although I never did train to teach Zumba, my mum was right and fitness is definitely my calling!"

    Favourite Innermost products?

    The Fit Protein is perfect for the tough classes I run at 1Rebel. It tastes amazing, and the ingredients help the muscle repair process and get you feeling back on top. The Energy Booster is brilliant for giving you that extra energy for your workout. There are a bunch of people at 1Rebel who swear by it!

    What's your hustle?

    I am a 1Rebel Master trainer and concept manager for “Ride”. My workouts will be tough but I’ll encourage you not to take it too seriously, to enjoy your body and the Rebel community around you. Hopefully you’ll leave sweaty but smiling.

    What does #liveinnermost mean to you?

    Always be true to yourself and lead the life you want to live.

    What do you do to maintain a healthy lifestyle?

    I try not to put too much pressure on myself as I don't want it to become obsessive. I train five days a week and I eat food that is good for me around 80% of the time. I try not to overthink it. I move my body and I generally eat good food to fuel it well. Simple.

    Usual breakfast?

    Eggs and avocado - very #fitspo of me!

    Biggest health vice?

    Cake, cake, cake, cake.

    Your last workout?

    Reshape this afternoon at 1Rebel with fellow trainers Esmee and Daniel.

    What’s on your bucket list?

    To do the Rickshaw Run. It's a team race across India in tuk-tuks. You wouldn't ever have guessed that one!

    Where do you see yourself in three years? Be bold!

    I'm a very "in the moment" person so this is a hard one for me! I would love to live in another country at some point so maybe that'll be on the cards!

    What's the favourite thing about the city you live in?

    I’m a massive foodie so I absolutely love that I’ve lived here for 6 years and there are still amazing restaurants that I want to try.

    Favourite healthy meal?

    My Monday night special is my "Lazy Prawns". Prawns, veggies, green pesto, feta and voila.

    Favourite decadent meal?

    Ooooft where do I start! I love a Sunday roast and I'm a big dessert girl. Cheesecake all day long!

    Most physically challenging thing you’ve done?

    I climbed Mount Kinabalu in Malaysia without doing any training for it. That was before I was in the fitness industry. Climbing the top half in the cold was pretty horrible.

    What or who motivates you?

    My husband. He always believes in me and pushes me to be the best I can be.

    Message to the world?

    Be you and don’t let anybody tell you otherwise.

    What would we be surprised to find in your fridge?

    My teeth moulds. I use them to whiten my teeth and for some reason, I like to keep them in the fridge!

    What did you want to be when you grew up?

    When I was seven, I wanted to be a tattooist, but I think I was just showing off. Then I thought an actress until I was about 20, before I realised I wasn’t that bothered... or that good!

    Favourite city and why?

    LA! I just love it. Great studios, sunshine, amazing restaurants and bars. It's very me.

    What is body confidence to you?

    Body confidence is a big one for me. It's something I have struggled with for years but I feel like I've finally come out of the other side. Everyone has the right to have days where they criticise themselves but I feel it's my responsibility to myself and others not to beat myself up, to embrace my shape, size and motivate others to do the same.

    How To Keep Life In Balance With Izzy Hill
    We sat down again with Innermost Insider Izzy Hill, who gave us the lowdown on all things 'balance'. Balanced diets, why it's important to keep life in balance (and how she does so), and her advice on what to do when maintaining balance seems impossible. Hey Izzy! Could you introduce yourself to our readers? Hey, I’m Izzy, I’m 22 years old and live in London. I work a 9-5 job in the city and in my free time, I love to socialise and be active. Throughout my school years, I was fortunate enough to have plenty of opportunities that strengthened my love for sport. Competing nationally in athletics and cross country, I was also a part of the school hockey and netball team. I went on to study at Nottingham Trent University, where my passion for fitness grew stronger, as I was a part of the hockey team and finding my feet as I began my ‘gym’ journey. As I got stronger, I soon became passionate about sharing my journey with others, setting up my fitness account in February 2021. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Izzy Hill (@izzyhillfit) How did you become an Innermost Insider and what’s your goal as an ambassador for the brand? Having studied Fashion Marketing at university, coincidentally, I actually applied for a marketing role at Innermost… unsuccessful at the time ha ha. Anyway, as a couple of months past and I focused on my fitness account whilst trying to find a full time job in London, I was contacted by Innermost via my Instagram account and the rest is history! I want to thank Innermost for all the opportunities I’ve had working with them, as an insider, I feel valued and that doesn’t go unnoticed. I originally applied for a marketing role at Innermost because I aligned with their brand values, and this still stands today. As an insider, I try to authentically share the wonderful and tasty products Innermost offer, along with the supportive community. I suppose my overall goal is to make as many others love the products and brand as much as I do! Our topic of the month is balance. Why do you think balance is important in life? I always like to remind myself that we have so many different aspects to life. A hobby, family, friends, work etc and without balance, how can you manage all those different aspects without balance? How do you personally balance your lifestyle?  As I work a 9-5 job, this takes up most of my time, and as we all know, this can involve very little movement… After work, I head to the gym and workout most evenings. I know that I will always feel better for doing something rather than nothing. Towards the weekend, I make sure I make weekend plans outside of working and exercising to fulfil a balanced lifestyle. How do you find balance in your diet? When it comes to my diet, I’m not too strict on myself, but don’t get me wrong, there’s a difference between my weekly diet compared to my weekend diet. This doesn’t mean I wouldn’t eat chocolate or office doughnuts in the week though! On weekdays my main goal is to eat 3 healthy and high protein meals per day, whereas at the weekend, I’m more flexible with what I eat as I’ll be likely to go out for dinner, for example. I think its important to have a goal there with what you eat to help you achieve your wider goals, but I don’t believe the best way to do this is by restricting yourself from eating something if you want to. Are there things in life you struggle to find balance with? I think I reiterate what I said before here, life is made up of different aspects and it’s important to enjoy all of them. Exercising after work does sometimes have its downside; less time to enjoy for yourself, sometimes rejecting after work socials, but it’s something I make up for at the weekend. Since fitness and being active is a priority to me, I remind myself of that and know it’ll be worth it in the long run. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Izzy Hill (@izzyhillfit) How do you find balance when reaching your fitness goals? I always remind myself that reaching my goals isn’t going to happen overnight, it’s a journey, and that journey may not always be linear. I ensure I have a strong balance by allowing myself to enjoy all aspects of life, not confine myself to just achieving fitness goals. I believe it’s important to be aware that sticking to strict daily fitness goals may mean you reach goals quicker, however, I appreciate that I can still achieve those goals whilst going out and having fun too. What advice would you give to others who struggle to balance a busy lifestyle? Don’t get overwhelmed, you’re doing your best  In today’s life, it’s easy to compare yourself with others, perhaps you’ve just seen someone get up at 5am to complete a workout or someone’s just ran a 10k and you’ve only done 5k steps… Realign that focus and put it on yourself.  Be selective with your time  I think a huge factor in balancing a busy lifestyle is using your free time wisely. Rule out the time that you don’t have control over, i.e. work, travelling to work etc. and with the left over time, make sure you’re allocating what matters to you in that time, exercising, self care… But make sure you still have at least 8 hours of sleep! Set targets, not expectations.  What Innermost product(s) have you been loving recently? My absolute go to has to be The Lean Protein in Vanilla, and I won’t stop talking about it… This protein is creamy, tasty and the science-backed ingredients make me love it even more. With protein, I’ve always struggled to find one that doesn’t have a grainy texture and one I can add to other foods, like porridge and actually enjoy it… this is the one. The Digest Capsules are the capsules I didn’t know I needed, whenever I’ve had a heavy weekend or my stomach is playing up, I can always rely on them to help me out. Can’t forget about the water bottle and gym duffel bag I use on the daily too! View this post on Instagram A post shared by Izzy Hill (@izzyhillfit) Izzy, it’s been a pleasure chatting to you! Our final question is ... What’s your innermost desire that you’re hoping comes true this year?  Well, since we’re almost at the end of this year, I’ve had a lot of self-made achievements and goals fulfilled this year. I want to continue to grow, learn and educate as I evolve my fitness journey! That's a wrap! To keep up with Izzy, follow her on Instagram, @izzyhillfit. Read more
    Learning To Relax And Unwind With Georgia Mitchell
    We sat down with Innermost Insider Georgia Mitchell, who gave us the lowdown on all things relaxation. How she makes sure to prioritise time to relax, her favourite ways to unwind, and her tips on what to do when burnout seems to be lurking on the horizon. Hey Georgia! Could you introduce yourself to our readers? Hi, I’m Georgia or @georgiafayefitness on Instagram. I love all things fitness, health & wellness. Eight weeks ago I moved to the other side of the world and I now live in Australia! Although this is such a big jump, I honestly couldn’t be happier. Im still working as a Pilates & Yoga instructor and I believe my life’s purpose is to teach and share happiness with others. How did you become an Innermost Insider and what’s your goal as an ambassador for the brand? I became an Innermost insider back in February 2021! This was around the time I won an Innermost instagram competition. After receiving a selection of their products I was hooked. I love that the supplements have such great additional ingredients and taste amazing. I love being an Innermost ambassador and being part of such a lovely community. My goal is to share with my followers the constant education of health and wellness that Innermost shares. View this post on Instagram A post shared by georgia║health & happiness ❋ (@georgiafayefitness) Our topic of the month is relaxation. How do you wind down and relax after a busy day? Things I typically enjoy doing to wind down would be a slow yoga practice, meditation, reading or a walk with a podcast. I also never underestimate how relaxing and refreshing a shower and self-care session can be. I love to wash my hair, put on a face mask, paint my nails and maybe put on a little fake tan. Do you think stress plays a part in your ability to relax? Absolutely! But if we don’t have the time to relax, the stress in our lives will only build up. My best tips to be able to give yourself the time to switch off would be to schedule it in! Put aside an hour either in the morning or evening for you to relax. Make this non-negotiable - if it’s been planned into your day it will stop the guilt and guarantee a time period to destress. What do you think the risks are of not relaxing or de-stressing on our minds and bodies? If we are in a constant state of stress we cannot possibly be living our life to the fullest and therefore unable to reach our goals. Relaxation is also a time to be still, reflect and reset. Stopping to look at what we have already achieved, to be proud and destress, ready to restart. Are there times when you struggle to relax? Definitely all days and weeks are different. Work may be playing on my mind or I might be overtired therefore leading to stress build up. View this post on Instagram A post shared by georgia║health & happiness ❋ (@georgiafayefitness) Do you any advice for others who struggle to relax or have burn out? As I said earlier definitely schedule it into your day. But also having a range of things you enjoy doing that are relaxing. Sometimes my mind is too loud to meditate or I’m too tired to do yoga, therefore a walk and a podcast that day may suit me better. I also try not to go on any electronic devices during my relax time. Sometimes social media can become a big distraction and lead you on a journey of endless scrolling that won’t leave you feeling refreshed. What Innermost product(s) have you been loving recently? My all time favourite will always have to be The Health Protein in Vanilla. It’s the best plant based protein I’ve tried and works well in both shakes or my protein pancakes! Georgia, it’s been a pleasure chatting to you! Our final question is ... What’s your innermost desire that you’re hoping comes true this year? Thank you for interviewing me! To be honest I must say I’m currently feeling so so grateful for my new life in Australia, I feel so lucky. I hope to continue on a path of self-discovery and that I’m able to share happiness with as many people as I can along the way. That's a wrap!
